Most DVD/CD drive are belt engaged driven by a small motor. If the tray is not sliding in and out by itself, it is highly probable that the belt is cut and therefore of course would require replacement. In some instances, it could be the small motor itself or the servo electronics that control it. There are also known instances when the tray is misaligned or the plastic rail/gear underneath have been worn out.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
I know that shortly after I purchased this tv mine also shut itself off occasionally. The owners manual says that if it is on dvd mode and it's paused or on an inactive menu or something for 15 minutes or so that it would shut itself off. If a dvd is stuck inside it may be causing this? I have no idea about the open/close malfunction.
you will have to open this unit up, sounds as thought the units slider has passed the spring sensor.
with the unit open manually open the tray, there should be a spring lock release on the right with it upside down facing you. slide the tray all the way back in until you hear it click and lock.
You may want to do this several times to make sure no plastic pieces have broken off.
If you see or find a piece come out then achances are the spring lock mechanism has snapped, not uncommon on this drive.
The screws are easily located on the bottom.
