Did you recently open the ps2/modify it?

Found this which may help (and will void your warrenty):

When you take the top cover off of the PS2, you can see where the Reset/Eject ribbon cable plugs into the system itself. Right next to and slightly below here are three wires with three tiny color-coded plug-ins attached. They are just pressed into place and have a tendency to work themselves out over time. And depending on which one came undone, the disc tray will either always want to stay closed or always want to stay open. Either way, the operation of the disc tray will be erratic and problematic.

So it's a matter of using a pair of needle-nosed pliers to grasp and make sure that all three of these tiny plug-ins are fully inserted into the slots where they belong. Sometimes it's even necessary to very slightly lift the PS2 out of the bottom half of it's shell to gain better access to them. After they're all clearly in place, then it's a good idea to use the same needle-nosed pliers to make sure that the ribbon cable did not slightly pull out of place from where it is plugged in as well, or the Reset/Eject buttons will not work.

After all this, you can put the PS2 back together and voila...you should be good to go!

Is there a button or something to get the disc to come out


An Eject button is usually near where the disc tray is. Locate it. If not, you can still go to My computer (XP), Computer (Win 7), find the drive and right click on it. Scroll down till you see the word 'Eject'. click on it and the tray should open. There is no other method on how to open a tray and get the disc out. if these two fail, it's time you took the Dell to a computer expert as these machines are really delicate. Hope this helps. Cheers

f the tray won't open or close properly, check the belt for dirt or wear. Then check the tray for misalignment. If needed, remove, clean, lubricate, and reinstall the tray following the instructions in the owner's manual.
God bless you

Dvd is stuck in my ACER laptop how can I get it out


The Acer 5610 has an emergency eject hole to the right of the eject button on the right side of the computer. Find a paperclip and unfold it (or small allan wrench), push the end of the paper clip into the hole until you feel pressure. Press firmly and the optical disc tray should come slightly out of the machine. Grab and pull the tray out (gently). This should work even without power to the drive on any machine tray optical drive, if the tray mechanism is undamaged.

For a slot-loading optical drive, it's a bit trickier. You can try sliding another object into the slot and using it to pry or lift the stuck disc. The safest option is to use another optical disc or credit card sized item and double-sided sticky tape. Put a piece of the tape on the item and then remove the paper from the other side of the sticky tape. Slide the item into the drive with the sticky tape towards the stuck disc (down for most computers). Once far enough into the drive, lower your item and press the tape firmly onto the stuck disc. Lift up and try to pull the stuck disc up and out of the drive.

I hope this helps.

Disk won't eject on my iMac


Ok, I assume you have hit the eject button on the keyboard. Try dragging the CD icon on the desktop to the trash can. If that doesn't work, Shut down the computer and start up while holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared. Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism. Another option is to open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button. Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder. Another option is to Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray. Lastly if your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button. One of these should work.

Re: disc tray won't open


First you need to contact the manufacturer and find out how to do a factory reset if possible. If you have no warranty and reset is not possible. Then remove the metal cover over the top, screws are on back and sides, sometimes top. after you get it open the cd mechanism is wide open. Remove the magnetic lock bearing from the top of the cd spindle. usually 2 screws on the sides. manually remove the cd from the tray and check for any damage, you can clean the lense off with anything softer than cotton, but q tips are a last resort tool. Gently wipe off lens in circular motion, being sure to life the material off the lens toward the edge coming outward. Also. there is a small glass fuse on the other side 
of the player, near where the power cord comes out, make sure 
that is not blown Replace all parts and leave the screws for the cover out until you are sure it works.
Try to power it on and see what happens. if no luck then get a new super multi blue player, just wait until the price is right but its a great player that supports every type of disc. details at your local electronics dealer
