Why does my cd tray keep opening in my laptop. its apresario cq62-421nr

The sensor inside the cd writer does not recognize the closing of the tray. Hence it keeps opening all the time. To stop it from opening hold the tray pressed when it closes for some time. The tray may stop opening. Sometimes it works. Else you have to repair or replace the CD writer.

The disktray automaticly opens and closed several times. When I put a cd in de tray the tray closed and opend without playing

Hi, when a disk tray automatically opens and closed several time, might be from the disk tray itself is jambed that's why it opening and closes by itself. You can open up the player and check if any thing in hooking it.

Also it might need to be replaced, the wheels inside the DVD player might be too weak to move in and out without moving automatically.

The way i see it, you might end up replacing the disk tray with a new one..

Have a nice day.

Dvd writer's flap not going in..

Breaking of cd indicates that the cd is not aligned (tightened) properly between the spindle and the magnetic top, if the tray dos'nt align properly it may not lift the spindle up, open the drive and check for any obstacles in the tray path, important if your drive uses rubber belt to drive the tray in-out replace the belt, also check the magnetic top for breakage.

My dvd-writer/cd-writer combo will not open?

look a tiny hole in the front of the CD/DVD drive use a paper clip to pull out the tray, when you have the tray out use the EJECT bottom in the drive to close and wait 3 seconds and press again to open, do this at least 3 times.

The drive is malfunctioning -- when it cannot read the CD-disk, it opens the tray. For less than $40, you can buy a brand-new CD/DVD-writer, and responsibly recycle the malfunctioning device.

Hi abdu

The problem is that at some stage you or someone else forced the cd open or closed, but not to worry, it's not broken. What happened is that the gear that pulls the tray in, mite have slipped a tooth or two. You'll have to open it up. Take the top cover off. It has four small screws holding it. When you take the cover off, the gear system should reveal itself. Now the gear that pulls the cd tray in and out must me ajusted. Before you open the dvd writer, make sure it is in it's utmost closed position. Very Important!. There should be a screw in the centre of this gear. Carefully unscrew completely. Now it depends on which direction the gear turns when it close the tray. Seeing that it doesn close completely, the gear turns anti clockwise to close. Lift the gear in a up sliding position and turn it one teeth clockwise, press the gear back, fasten the screw and test. If it still needs more adjustment, repeat the process with another teeth clockwise. Note if it worsen that it doesn't close, then you need to reverse the process and move the gear anticlockwise, but make sure to mark the teeth that it was originally on when you opened it.

Hope this helps

Samsung 52x cd writer

use memorex brand cdr they are the most compatable (readable media ) to many cd& dvd writers .

the reason the cd writer dosent open often is because its usually trying to read poor quality media use good quality memorex cdr you will see a big difference in performance.
