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.

You need to replace the disc tray belt,it streches with age.It is called a square belt,size 1.9.To open try tapping on TOP of cabinet with your knuckles just above the disc tray door.While you are doing this press the Open button.Once again this must be done at the same time,the door will open 90% of the time.When you get it open you will see the little black square belt,this can be removed and replaced with a twizzers.Make sure belt is in the track if not it will jam and door won't close.
Very sorry for your loss. As always the first step is to make sure the player is connected to the wall outlet and turned on.
To put a disk in the DVD you should push the "Eject" button to open and close the tray it looks like a home(a triangle over a dash) on the front side of the box down left corner of the tray. You have the same button on the remote marked "Eject". Push either once, put the disk with the shiny side down on the tray and push the Eject button again to feed the tray back into the player. Usually the disk starts automatically and you will see a menu on the TV with alternatives like "Play the movie", "Setup", "Scenes",... you may highlight the "Play the movie" alternative, using "Up", "Down", "Left" and "Right" and then press the "OK" button. Or just push the "Play" button either on the box or the remote control. If you click "Here "you can download the manual in PDF form. To open it in your pc you'll need "Adobe Acrobat Reader" (or any other PDF reader) installed.
I will gladly answer your questions
remove the top cover and look at the side of the tray.there is a small motor and belt that drives the tray.the belt is probably pear shaped from sitting so long. give it a gentle push and it will probably open.some are gear driven and the motor could have a flat spot.in any event,push the tray gently and it will most likely open.
Use your knuckles to knock on top of cabinet just above disc tray door while at the same time pressing open button,99% of the time disc tray will open.The problem you have is caused by a worn out belt drive or the tray is out of alignment.The disc tray belts only cost $2,when tray is open you can see the minature belt that controls door to the right.Use twizzers to remove and replace.Belt size 1.9
Disc tray belt that opens door has too much slack and need to be replaced,$2 item,belt size 1.9.To get tray open use your knuckles and tap on TOP of cabinet just above disc door while pushing open button.When open you will see the tiny belt that operates door to the right,use twizzers to remove an replace.Make sure new belt is seated properly in tracks if not tray won't move.
Check to see if anythig is blocking the tray from opening. Also the tray motor or connections may be failing. I would open the case, remove and replace as many connections, one at a time, to make sure the connections were good. If the tray still does not move, then one or more than one component has failed. It could be an electronic component or the motor.
Tray is out of alignment or belt drive is shot.Knock on top of cabinet with knuckles while pressing open button it will open the disc tray door 98% of time.While disc tray door is open you will see a tiny pulley to the right,this belt is probably too worn out to open the door properly.Uses 1.9 size belt.You can remove and replace with twizzers.Make sure new belt is in the tracks or tray won't move.
there is a small hole in the front of the tray that will accept a straightened paper-clip. gently insert the clip and the tray should release. if the cd/dvd disc is dislodged from being flat in the tray, it may not come out. you might need to open the cover and manipulate the disc to get it back flat in the tray. a good first test is to see if the disc plays. if it does, it is in the tray correctly and should be easily released with the paper clip. the try might work after you release it. another possible first try would be to gently push inward on the tray after telling it to release. if there is extra tension on the tray it could cause the mechanism to not release. freeing the tension on the tray could be all that you need to get the 'unlock' to release. (kinda like trying to open a door when someone is pushing it very hard against the lock mechanism. it wont be able to move). good luck mark
