Everytime I try and load a new DVD, the door opens after I close it. I then press OPEN/CLOSE to close it and it opens again. It always seems to load properly after 3 tries. I would think that it is kicking the disc back out because it is dirty, but this happens on every disc and it always seems to work after I close it again 3 times exactly.
Try the fix where you slide the piece of plastic as for towards the middle. I opened the unit and checked the gears. They seemed okay although I did push the white piece of plastic which is located in front of the drive and opens the dvd drive. However, I think I may have just needed to seseat the small ribbon cable that connects the dvd drive to the motherboard. I'm not sure but the unit seems to work okay for the time being

My identical system has exactly the same problem as the one described by dipaola, above. When I insert a DVD, the DVD carriage pops back open after a few seconds. In fact, mine won't stay closed even without a DVD in it, as long as the system is set to play a DVD. I'd like an answer to the big Q - Is there anything I can do about this, or should I just find another DVD player to hook into the system?
When the door is closed, push a paperclip into the paperclip-sized hole in the front to open it manually w/o the motor. Put the disc in and press it shut manually. Bypass the open/close motor completely.
DOOR SWITCH ERROR If the door has not been opened for 3 consecutive cycles or the door switch is open while the door is locked for more than 5 seconds.
Door not opened during 3 consecutive cycles. 1. Open and close the door. 2. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.
Door switch open while door is locked. 1. Push the door and check if it is completely closed. 2. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.
Faulty door Switch or CCU board or door not closed during run cycle.
Starting Diagnostic Test and bypassing the Service History Mode: Execute this procedure with an empty drum. All of the steps below must be done in sequence in order to reach the Diagnostic Test. This executes the automatic test but does not show the error history. Close the door. Push POWER. Select the CLEAN WASHER cycle. Press EXTRA RINSE four times within 5 seconds. Press EXTRA RINSE to advance to the next step of the test procedure. If the starting procedure fails, push PAUSE/CANCEL, then repeat the starting procedure.
First let's find out if the motor is dead or
the magnetic clamp is to strong for the motor.
Press eject then listen closely for the sounds of struggling motor
if you hear it trying SLAP the top right over the DVD drive
and that should break the magnetic seal and release the tray
you may have to try a few times Press eject and open hand slap kinda
hard the top of the DVD drive , don't worry you won't hurt it.
if that works email me and ill tell you how to fix this.
the switches for these vehicles are in the latch and they seize up from time to time. you will have to spray some penetrating oil into the dor and rapidly close and open the door hard to try and fix it. if that doesn't work then you will have to figure out which door it is and replace to latch. note if key is on, the dash will make a tone everytime you open and close door. so the door that doesn't chime that is the door with the issue.
The drawer seems to hang up when it sits closed for a while. I found that using a very thin but rigid metal item such as a nail file under the leading edge, allows it to open with the first press of the
open/close button. I load the DVD, press the open/close button and it closes and stays shut.
After I submitted my problem, it occured to me that the reason for the door to continue to open and
close, was the repeated pressing of the button. The door was merely responding to each time it was "called."
hi if your dvd driving belt is slack, it wouldnt be able to draw the door to a position where it will press the loading switch, so it will eject back. 2. if your dvd laser lens is dull or too dirty or dead it might be making attempts to load severally.if the disc driving motor is bad, the tray can be open & close many time without a success
