I have a 2005 Toshiba SD-V383SC DVD Video Player and Video Cassette Recorder, and when I turn it on the DVD tray keeps opening and closing on it's own. This goes on about 3 times and then stops, otherwise the machine works well. What can I do to stop it from misbehaving??.

Thank you. Yes, we did solve the problem; in fact, it was the way we had solved it one other time, even though I had believed it a fluke then:
we simply disconnected the unit for a couple of hours, plugged it back in and, just as last time, the tray opened easily.
