i had exactly the same problem on a LG-RH278H resp. a Medion MD 81733. I solved it by opening the micoswitches, cleaning the contacts and streching the springs inside the switches a little. The Problem was, that one of the microswitches stayed conductive even when it was off/open.

I have new Panasonic DVD & Combo units stacked on top of each other and had the same problem, until last resort I read the manual and and easily changed the frequency on the DVD unit and remote, you can have up to 3 Panasonic units with different frequencys close to each other.

I've dismounted the unit and it seems that I have located the problem. The tray is connected to a wheel, so any displacement is translated into a rotation of this wheel. When the tray is near the close position, it releases a mechanism in order to position the lens. Summarising: if you have pushed the tray with your hand instead of pushing the button open/close, probably you have introduced a desynchonization. To solve this, when the tray is in close position, apply a small rotation to the wheel in order to compensate the desynchronization. There is not an exact position, but you need to try. A few degrees is enough. Regards

I have exactly the same thing. Happened before but went away when I got bored trying to fix it. This time I phoned LG support and they said take it back to Comet (they have bought out their servicing). End of conversation. Polite but firm.
Appalling support via their websites, appalling products. Never again.
