DVD Drawer keeps opening

The Drawer on my Pacific Home Cinama System keeps reopening after it has been closed (by the remote controller or the close button, or if I switch mode to VCR back to DVD) very occasionally it will go ahead and load and play a disc. Do any of you AV geniuses out there have any ideas what the problem is?:lease:
Many thanks and Happy Christmas

I work in IT at a school and we've seen this a few times. I can't remember what the permanant fix is, but if you hold the drive closed it will try to eject about 7 or 8 times, then give up and stay closed. Obviously don't force the drive, but most of them have a pressure sensor that closes the drawer and so this will not damage the drive.

That Doesn't seem to have worked, but thanks for the advice, any more ideas appreciated!

Try cleaning the keys on the of the remote - sounds like a button might be stuck and sending out a signal.

Use a toothbrush and put a light amount of something like the cleaners you get for keyboards on the brush (take the batteries out first and let it dry completely afterwards). Might just be dirt/crumbs
