There is a tiny hole just below thr CD drive tray. Straighten a paper clip and insert it into this hole and gently push the paper clip until the drive tray pops out. You can then pull the tray out to the fully opened position.

CD DRIVE DOOR BUTTON JAMMED ON AX5900


You should see a small 'pin hole' on the face of the CD drive, usually near the eject button itself, but not always. Straighten a paper clip (med size is best) and insert into the hole. You will feel a little resistance (this is good) continue pushing the paper clip straight in until the door pops open. Almost all CD/DVD drives have this "manual open" pin hole for just such cases. Alternately you can open My Computer, point to the CD/DVD icon, right click and choose the "eject" option, this will open the tray if the physical button has stopped working.

I have a burned CD in the CD drawer and I can't retreive it, I can't find the button to open the door. Somewhere there is a button" OPEN DOOR" but I can't locate it.


There are two ways to open the CD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD disc.
If you continue having problem openning with the Eject button, then the CD drive may be faulty and needs replacing.

Cdn-24 cd door wont open


Often the cause is a jammed CD or aa little belt that drives the carriage has failed or is slipping.

You need the OPEN the case to retrieve the CD if one is in there and check the mechanism does not have a problem. Some drives used to have a SMALL hole near the door that one would insert a straightened paper clip into straight to press a release... You might check for that.

Cd rom door wont open


Do you see blinking light on your CD Drive. If not, you may need to check you power supply to CD Drive.
If yes, may be door looks jam, opening up once may remove any dust to smooth it out again. To open up there is small pin hole on cd drive, generally on the right side, use needle and press it through the pin hole, it will eject the CD Door and you can pull it out completely.

straighten out a paper clip and locate a small hole on the front of the drive, push the paperclip in the hold and the cd\dvd will come out. If might start working after this but chances are that if it does you will need a new one in teh near future.
