Troubleshooting with the LG HDD/DVD recorder RH277H

The door for the DVD disc keeps opening. I close it and it keeps reopening on and on. How can I solve this problem as this is not on the troubleshooting list manual.

    I also have a problem with my dvd player. The disc ejects all the time. I cant play any discs. In the beginning i made it play when i closed it several times, but now i cant get it to stay in at all. I finally found a firmware upgrade for the rh188, but i cant upgrade it because i cant get the player to read any discs. I am a little fed up about this player. I had it repaired a year ago for problems with the dvd player.

    Yes, I can recognise your description. Moreover, the remote control does not always work when trying to switch off the DVD.

    Any suggestions?

Portable dvd player says open

It thinks the tray is open. Try to reopen and close the tray. If it still says open, help it close with a finger. Don't force it enough to break the gears.
