This could be a simple belt problem . Or if it is motor driven then you would have to check if there is voltage to the motor or the motor is bad . This would require removing the dvd deck to get to the belt . Good luck

How to remove a stuck dvd

Most DVD products have a small hole near the tray on the device itself. Take a paper clip and bend it so you can put one end in this hole. Push the paper clip straight into this hole gently.... the tray should slide open.

When I power up my LG RHT397H the DVD tray opens, it will not accept any discs. If I press CLOSE the tray closes then re-opens. The fault only affects the DVD drive - the unit records on the hard disk, and...

Sounds like possibly the Spin Motor is bad and not spinning up the disc's. That's usually what I've found, if it were the optics assembly, it would take a long time before it finally gives up and say's something like "No Disc", "Disc Err", etc.

My dvd is stuck . the tray does not open anymore.

This is very simple to fix:

Unfold a paper clip so that one end forms a straight rod.

Open the door to the DVD bay if the face of the DVD drive is hidden.

Find a small pin-hole on the face of the drive, usually below the DVD tray, and to the left of the drive.

Insert the rod end of the paper clip into the hole repeatedly, until it catches, and the DVD tray will open toward you.

Door will not open

I had a similar problem, I went back in and opened it up, took the top plate that covers the lens, opened the tray, put the plate back on, then closed the tray and it works again. With the tray closed, I think I put the top plate on the bottom piece and it was stuck on.

Dvd wont eject

You might try turning the power off, then unplugging the unit.  After approximately one minute, plug the unit back in.  Wait five seconds, then press the power button.  Wait two seconds, then press the open/close button slowly five times.
It is also a good idea to clean the front and back of your DVDs on a regular basis with alcohol.  Wipe the DVDs side to side, not in a circular motion.
