How do I get the tray to stay closed on my iLO DVDR04

This is normally caused by a small loading belt that has stretched and the tray can not complete the cycle to close the door properly thus causing it to open.

Dvd drawer keeps opening up on its own and will not stay shut?

There is a switch located at the front of the player right under the DVD tray. This switch tells the player that the door is completely closed. If this switch does not operate, then the Ilo will re-open the DVD tray thinking that something is jammed. Might want to try replacing that switch

Tray Wont open

Hello All. Well, I just finished troubleshooting the same problem of one of my customers units. At first I thought it was the tray contacts but they were good. What I noticed with the cover off and the shield for the laser removed...BE CAREFUL NOT TO BREAK IT TAKING IT OFF ANF DON"T LOOK AT THE LASER...that if I moved the DVD motor, the motor that turns the has a rubber wheel on the shaft...that the tray would open. The trouble was intermittent but I also noticed that the wheel would move when pressing the OPen button. I therefore concluded that the motor somehow was in the circuit to open the tray. So, I took the motor out CAREFULLY and on the end opposite the wheel there are two small holes. These holes appear to be access holes for assembly and to hold the brush contacts away from whatever they use for a commutator. At first i was going to disassemble the motor but changed my mind. I have contact cleaner spray and some old Color Tuner Cleaner spray from the old days of mechanical TV tuners. I gave each hole a small shot of spray and turned the wheel. Careful not to contaminate the rubber on the wheel as it is what grips the DVD and pushes it against the white nylon bearing. Voila, the tray opens and closes and the Load display is no more. As I said, be careful. If you are unsure...let someone who understands this stuff do it. Ed

Tray will not open

My ILO was doing the same thing, then it stopped doing it. It then suddenly would not recognize any media. I opened up the case and found it is using a dvd lite-on recorder. I had this old pc laying around with a gigabyte dvd recorder in it. For a test, I unplugged the lite-on and plugged in the gigabyte recorder. On power up, it seemed to work fine. After recording 3 DVD's I modified the case to accept the hew recorder. ** problems since, its not pretty, but it was easy to get the unit functional again.

DVD tray will not remain closed

Try this. With the tray door still open and the power on, press and hold the play button until the door closes. If you hear the disc loading the door will remain closed for play and record.

Have the same problem - works for me!

What probably happened is your backlight went out on your LCD. If it is still covered under a warranty they would replace that. But there aren't any buttons you can push to get it back. You'll have to replace the screen.
