If you examine the face of the tray, you should find a very small hole, about the exact diameter of a standard paper clip. (See where this is going? ;-) )
Some need to have the clip unfolded twice since the manual release is pretty far inside and you may have to blindly poke around (try straight in first, of course) before you find the right spot. Once you find it, it will require a good push to get the tray lip to come out.
I have two that do this and am too lazy to take them out and correct the problem since they do sometimes come out on their own. The weak point is kind of a clutch that is supposed to slip if something is blocking its movement and unfortunately, probably because of dust, they lose their grip and slip when they shouldn't.

My satellite won't recognize a cd/dvd drive when I open up my computer there isn't a drive at all how can I fix this


If you don't have a cd/dvd rom drive installed on your laptop then of course your laptop would not reconize a cd/dvd rom. Is you laptop a Netbook, usually netbook does not come with a cd/dvd drive. To solve this case, you will need to buy an external cd/dvd drive and hook it up via USB.

I have a gateway kav60,it does'nt have a cd rom or a floppy drive, how can fix a problem take's a disc. it say's it has a bad file or missing some files.


You will have to get an external CD ROM or floppy drive to plug into your USB port. Most electronic stores will have the CD ROM drive and Best Buy can order the external floppy if they don't have one in stock.

Cd rom drive door


Best guess is that a small plastic catch broke. My cousin has similar doors on his CD trays. I personally would take the doors off. As far as repair, again best guess without seeing it, is that you'll need a new door panel.

The cd-rom door not open


Sir,
You have encountered a problem often seeen in LG models. It could have spontaneously generated or as a sideeffect of recent servicing. It is difficult to correct. so an alternative way is use a pin to force open the door.
On the front panel there will be a small mm hole through which insert a straightened paper slip to force eject the door. once door is out a little. pull it or use button to fully take out the tray.

For future, always keep a cd rom inside. that will probably let you eject the tray automatically. Problem occurs usually only withthe empty tray. good luck
