SOURCE: LG DVD 6053 Disc tray does not open

This happens to my dvd player all the time. I know this sounds bad but I give it a few quick taps on the top of the player just after I press the open button and it opens for me. I have the same player as you also.

See how you go with it!!

Hello shelby4844,
Is the front panel coming on? I ask because if it is not this is indicating possible power supply failure. In this case the switching power supply might be having a problem. I would suggest that you have someone who is skilled in electronics work on this problem for you since the power supply delivers current and voltage that could be hazardous to your health. Now that being said, this problem could be cause by a blown fuse, first unplug the DVD player, open it up, and find the fuse. The fuse will look like two metal caps separated by a glass or ceramic housing containing a strand of wire. Once you find this fuse. Take it out and measure it with an ohmmeter, the fuse should read 0 ohms (dead short from one cap to the other.  If the fuse is not bad then one of the other components may be bad, at this point, the testing should be done by someone who is skilled in electronics.
I hope this help,
Thank you,

Most likely the tension band that is attached to the mechanical parts of motor and the tray detached. you'll need to disconnect the power and unscrew the cover open and put the band back in place.

  • 1 Turn on the DVD player.

  • 3 Press the "Home" key on the DVD remote.
  • 4 Select the "Setup" option.
  • 5 Select the "Lock" icon by using the arrow keys on the remote control.
  • 6 Press the number key "0," seven times on the remote. This is the code-"0000000."
  • 7 Confirm by selecting "OK" when you get the "Region Free" message. Insert an import DVD to test the DVD player.
  • 8 Repeat the steps again if the you encounter problems playing the DVD as you may have missed something.

All CD and DVD players have a small hole in the front of the tray. This is for situation like you are in. Insert a paper pin into it and press a little when you encounter resistance. The tray will unlock and open.

My dvd will not open

All CD and DVD players have a small hole on the tray. If you insert a paper pin into this hole it will travel free some distance and then encounter resistance. Just press a little more and this will unhook the latch of the tray and the tray will open. You can even try the software method. From My Computer select the DVD drive and right click. One of the options is Eject. Click on it. The tray should open up.

The cd-rom door not open

You have encountered a problem often seeen in LG models. It could have spontaneously generated or as a sideeffect of recent servicing. It is difficult to correct. so an alternative way is use a pin to force open the door.
On the front panel there will be a small mm hole through which insert a straightened paper slip to force eject the door. once door is out a little. pull it or use button to fully take out the tray.

For future, always keep a cd rom inside. that will probably let you eject the tray automatically. Problem occurs usually only withthe empty tray. good luck
