So, my dvd player tray automatically shuts itself!

Well, i have a toshiba dv-343, and when i hit the open button on the tray, it'll open, and then shut itself right away. i'll hit it a few times, it'll remain open. it still plays dvds fine. is there any way to fix this?

Well yes there is, it sounds like the solenoid that controls the door is dirty or failing. It may cost more than the player is worth to fix it though.

Are you sure it's a Toshiba and not a Pioneer player?

Weird. I had the same problem with a Pioneer disk changer a few months ago. I sold it on eBay (with a warning about the problem), and the guy who bought it claims he hasn't encountered the problem yet.
