Every time I close it, it just pops open again. The only time it stays shut is if I turn it off and manualy close it. It goes in and out fine, but opens no matter what kind of disk is in it, even with no disk in it.

Have you checked to see if it is off track? Sometimes when these machines get bumpbed, dropped, or fall they can jump track. You have to take the cover off and inspect to see if it is off track when it closes and opens. It should go all the way back on the track when it closes. Be careful not to shock yourself. If it is on when you do it and your hand touches the metal parts inside you can get seriously burned or shocked.
f the tray won't open or close properly, check the belt for dirt or
wear. Then check the tray for misalignment. If needed, remove, clean,
lubricate, and reinstall the tray following the instructions in the
owner's manual. God bless you
I fixed this by jerking the tray gently. Someone jammed my tray and it skipped a few gear teeth. It seemed like the machine couldn't pull it in far enough to reach its preset position. So I let it close and when it was almost closed, I gently jerked it out to skip the gear teeth back into alignment. It is kind of tricky because the motor will just reverse instead of skipping teeth (you'll hear the plastic clicking when it skips). Perhaps unplug it and slowly push it in manually then **** it back out softly. Just be gentle. Good luck.
i had exactly the same problem on a LG-RH278H resp. a Medion MD 81733. I solved it by opening the micoswitches, cleaning the contacts and streching the springs inside the switches a little. The Problem was, that one of the microswitches stayed conductive even when it was off/open.
Did you drop the dvd player or bump it at all? if not there is a small object stuck in the tray housing(more than likely) also see if the tray is off kilter especially if it's closing then opening. It's really hard to tell w/out seeing it but that's probably what's wrong.
I have the dv9000z. If I do NOT push the DVD drive tray all the way in until it CLICKS shut, then it OPENS again after 1-2 seconds. This is normal. I have found that most times when I close the DVD tray drive, I am not pushing it in far enough, because the top of the DVD tray is rubbing against the laptop's case. If I just press down VERY SLIGHTLY and push the DVD tray in, the tray will fully close and CLICK shut. This works for me. Good luck.
I have an LG DVD player and recorder model # RC7423W and i have a similar problem, when i open up the disk tray it displays open and the tray opens for 2 seconds only and then closes. when i press the open/close button to open it again it opens and never closes back with a "Disc Error" on display until i close it manually by pushing it back inside. I cleaned it from dust many times and tried to reset it but no reset button. i just tried to unplug the wire and plug it back. let me know if there is a way that i can reset the hardware or a solution to my problem. my system is around one year old
