    I finally called the company and was given the same advise. After attempting this solution, it did not work!

    I have the same problem with the LDA-511. I've used it maybe a dozen times. Last time I used it, the dvd played, but now is stuck in the player. The player makes a chunking/grinding noise when the eject button is pressed, but the disc is stuck

This is what LG customer service will instruct you to do. I have a LG LDA-511:

1. Unplug your unit.
2. After unplugging, wait a few seconds then press and hold the power button (yes, while the unit is unplugged). This resets the unit.
3. Plug in your unit.
4. Press the eject button.

If the disc does not come out, then you need service from an authorized service representative.

How do I remove a stuck DVD?


It sounds like your problem isn't the dvd is stuck, since it seems to be spinning up, it sounds more like your ejection system has stopped working for some reason.
To fix either you are going to have to remove the outside case of the dvd player and expose the internal chassis. There are anywhere from 4 to 8 screws holding it on on the bottom and back of the unit, Make sure the dvd player is unplugged before you remove the cover.
Once you have the cover off, if the dvd is simply stuck, you should be able to see what the issue is; is it misaligned in the housing was it inserted incorrectly, are there in fact 2 dvds in the player, etc, etc. Gently remove the dvd and replace the case and enjoy.
If you can't see any reason for it to be stuck it may be the ejection system. The eject system will have a belt and sprocket system to move the tray or push out the dvd depending on the player. Make sure the belt is on the wheels correctly and that the sprockets mesh properly. If you can't see anything wrong try testing the ejection system with the case off.
Make sure you don't have any objects in or touching the dvd player, you don't want to short out any of the components if a screw fell into the dvd player onto the mother board, etc. Plug the dvd player back in, make sure you don't touch the inside and try to eject the dvd. Watch the ejection system and you should be able to figure out what is going wrong. Once you have figured it out unplug the unit and put the items back together. If you can see that something is broken then you will have to determine if you can have it fixed or if it wouldn't be cheaper to simply ditch that unit and purchase a new one.
Hope this helps.

Tip

My 2910 player has similar issue. The tray gets stuck on eject. Started with not...


1)just open the player
2)remove the rubber belt connecting the dc motor
3)you can open the disc tray now
4)if there are any dust particles or obstacles in the door way just clear them up by using the cloth(dry cloth preferred)
5)if you have any greasy material like vaseline,oil,etc then just put that in the door for easy movement of the disc tray

6)if needed change the rubber belt which is connecting the dc motor

7) just reconnect the rubber belt again and then just fit all screws that s all

It will not let me insert a disc and when I press the eject button, it sounds like it is going to eject a disc and then it makes a weird noise for 5 seconds. Then, it will say CLOSE for a bit. I got one...


It sounds like you have 2 disks stuck in there. TV repair shop, or try shaking the dvd player lightly while dvd is trying to open. You may need to help open the door, but too much effort could cause harm.

Will not eject disk.


Almost always, your described problem could be caused by:
  • stuck disc;
  • fault in the load/eject mechanism.

It it were a stuck disc, the correct fix would be to open the unit and manually extract the erring disc. However, there may be possible workarounds:
  • unplug the unit for an hour or so;
  • press and hold the eject button while plugging in; or
  • unplug the unit for an hour or so;
  • invert the unit (bottom side up);
  • plug back the Apex and quickly unplug soon as you hear the mechanical noise start;
  • revert to normal position and try ejecting; or
  • while still in the inverted position, press and hold the eject button while plugging in but must unplug quickly even before the tray starts to move out.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
