Hello

Well, if there is a cd stuck in the device, you might fix this problem by force ejecting the cd/DVD.

Here is how we do this:
Take a small pin, push it into the small hole near the eject button on the CD/DVD rom. While doinf this, gently pull out the trey.

If this was a stuck cd, just take it out, if there was no dc/dvd in the rom, it might be a faulty eject button. Test this by going to My Computer, right click on the CD/DVD rom andd choose to eject.

If this does not work, i would suggest thatyou buy a new drive, because it is often much cheaper than to repair.

Let me know if this work.

Kind regards

The door will not open on my dv-5700a dvd rom drive.


Hallo

The reason for the trey not ejecting may be because there is a disc stuck in it from previous use. Now you need to force pen the trey. The way for doing this follows:

There should be a small hole in near the eject button.
Take a pin or small paper clip and push it into the hole.
When you feel a slight resistance, gently pull out the trey.

This will not damage the device, the small hole is made for this sole purpose. Really hope this can help.

Best regards

when I press the bottin on the dvd burner to open the door, the green light comes on and i would hear the door try to open but no open.


yes frn this is happen due to the jam in the DVD rom. when you press the eject button put one pin in the hole that is just below the eject button. so that you can eject your DVD. or just hit the cd ROM slowly.
