I have tried everything I can think of and I am wondering if my drive
is shot. The drive stays open all the time. When I close it it will
stay closed and after about two seconds it ejects again. Any
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If you mean your cdrom drive wotn stay close, what can happen some times is the actually cdrom unit it self has shifted back inside its rack. try opening case and loosing a few screws here and there and shift it forward. make sure nothing has got stuck inside of door tiny bit of paper or anythign can cause it. hope this helps
I was wondering the same thing, i have the G5446 and all i can get it to do, is open, close and reopen, it won't stay shut, i think the remote for it, which i don't have any wireless ones, just the one in the garage has two wires that run up to it, that i think is shot or something
I have the dv9000z. If I do NOT push the DVD drive tray all the way in until it CLICKS shut, then it OPENS again after 1-2 seconds. This is normal. I have found that most times when I close the DVD tray drive, I am not pushing it in far enough, because the top of the DVD tray is rubbing against the laptop's case. If I just press down VERY SLIGHTLY and push the DVD tray in, the tray will fully close and CLICK shut. This works for me. Good luck.
Well, I've seen CD-drives that would re-open, when you try to close them -- it is _falsely_ detecting a "jam" as the tray is closing, and then just re-opens the tray, rather than "forcing" itself to close.
Replacing the CD-drive is the only way to fix that type of "false-positive" jam-detection conditions.
But, since you've done that, either you were unlucky-enough that the replacement drive was also "defective", or, you have a computer-virus on your computer that is maliciously issuing commands to the CD to "open-the-tray".
