    Hi Craig........thanks for the reply. Any ideas where to get repairs done. I live in a small town without much support for these items. Or could this be a do it yourself project. thanks again, Jim.

The only way to solve that problem is to replace the belt to eject the tray

I have an older dvd player that has always worked great. Lately when I open it, it doesn't want to stay open and closes the door again, right away.


There are two small switches under the tray, one to say it's open and one for close to activate the laser, these can be dirty or faulty

DVD Tray will not stay closed


There is a leaf switch inside the loading mechanism, which detects the tray to fully closed state. If this switch has damaged, this kind of fault will occur. To repair it, you have to open the set, and take the loading mechanism out, and disassemble it. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here.Pull up older posts.

LOCK ON LG FA163


followt this step and fix it. God bless you
However there are a small hole in the CD/DVD burner use clip and make click and open it.
  1. Open the housing by removing mounting screws and anything blocking the tray. Press the open/close control to the extend tray, then unplug the unit. To remove a clip-on tray front, brace the tray and slide the panel to one side.
  2. Unplug cables between the front panel and the interior. Remove any screws securing the front panel and remove the panel. If it won't move, check beneath it for clips or additional screws.
  3. Remove the hold-down on top of the disc tray and gently pull the tray out of the player. Clean the travel rail and guides with a swab dampened with denatured alcohol. Lubricate lightly with white lithium grease.
Remove the drive belt (using gloves or tweezers) to inspect for dirt, water, or damage. Clean with a lint-free cloth moistened with denatured alcohol. If the belt is damaged, replace it. Service a DVD tray motor:
  1. Unplug the player and test the motor with multimeter
  2. Unplug the motor plug and spray it with electrical contact cleaner, then plug it back in.
To remove the motor, unscrew or depress the end of each bale and lift out the motor. Replace the motor if necessary.

CW088D CD-RW Tray ejects with CD in it but not empty


If the tray retracts but doesn't close 100% then it will open back-up. If it is closing fully then returning open then it is a bad drawer switch. It's hard to get to but if you do get in there, a little WD40 lube might help it actuate. Good luck!

No Response To Open Button on Remote


I had the same problem- the door would not open.
I opened up the unit removed the drive and discovered a lever which allows to manually eject the tray. After playing with this a bit, I discovered that if I hit open on the until and depress this lever, it would open reliably. Not ideal, but at least it gives me ability to open/close.
Unfortunately once I put the unit back together, it no longer recognizes any disks. I must have damaged some disk sensor mechanism in the process. On the bright side however, it open/closes reliably now, doesnt even require the lever to be depressed manually. So if I can just get it to recogize disks, I am in good shape again.

You may not need to open up the unit and remove the CD burner to get to the manual lever, but you have to remove the fancy cover plate for the tray to be able to access the lever. The cover plate on mine is silvered and says "All write". The lever is on the underside of the tray to the left side, a paperclip might be able to poke thru to access it without removing the whole front cover.
Good luck.
