LG RH274H DVD Recorder keeps opening and closing the disk tray

I've had the product for 18 months without problem, since a couple of weeks the DVD tray opens and closes automatically whenever I turn the machine on. Often it also refuses to respond when I turn it off and I have to pull the plug. It still works and records on both the 80gb hard drive, and on blank DVD's, but it's getting very annoying to operate and I suspect pretty soon the system will crash until I find the problem.

If anyone has any ideas, please help.

Could be a timing issue with the tray mechanism - possible that somebody has given the tray "a shove" to make it close instead of using the open/close button and has put the timing out.or a worn tray loading belt

My LG RH265 keeps opening the tray. When I close it with the remote, it opens itself again. This problem repeats itself on and on. What can I do about this, is there a way to reset the recorder?


My RH265 has had this fault three times and on each occasion LG have replaced the 815V DVD Deck (Part No. EAZ34934813) - This fault seems to be common to all their recorders and in my view gives LG an otherwise undeserved very bad name for product reliability. I am very surprised that they do not appear to have solved the problem with a reliable component.

DVD TRAY KEEPS ON OPENING AND CLOSING CONTINOUSLY


Hi, 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.

DVD disc tray keeps popping out


I had mine for 2 years and within the first 12 months the tray would not always pop out when I wanted it to. Then finally the machine would not recognise the disc type. Its in getting fixed but although the dvd drive and associated pcb have been replaced the guy says it still can't recognise the dvd disc type. Still trying to work it out.

My dvd recorder keeps ruining blank dvd+r's.


I have suffered the same problems as you describe here. What I believe is this unit suffers from inadequate ventilation. After having this problem I examined the unit and noticed it was hot. What I've done is put 2 small flat blocks on each side of the unit, to basically suspend it so that it can get airflow under and over it, now staying much cooler. Nearly all problems now have gone away. Seldomly, I find it will still exibit the problems mentioned. Frankly the only solution I've found from there is to unplug it for a short while and, upon plugging it back in, and trying again it works flawlessly.
