Use a pin and insert it on the small hole u see on one end of the DVD drive. Once you insert the pin you will see the tray coming out a bit. Applying little preesure pull the tray out and you are good to go.

Thanks

Dvd door won't open for Sanyo DVW 6000


If you are trying to eject a disc, look closely at the front bezel of the drive, there is a small hole near the eject button, push a paper clip into the hole (straightened paperclip) and the tray will be ejected.

If the DVD door is stuck and will not open through ejecting via the icon in My computer, or the eject button on the bezel will not work, you likely have a faulty drive that will need to be replaced

My dell studio 1737 keeps making clicking sound and wont eject tried my computer, tried funtion key not doing anything please help


It sounds like your CD/DVD rom is stuck or damaged. If the drive is empty, this means that something is wrong with the drive itself.

Often, you can use a paperclip that has been bent straight to open this. insert the paper clip into the tiny hole on the door pannel of your CD/DVD drive and most of the time it should pop right open.

if it does not pop open right away, I have seen situations where the disc becomes lodged inside the case and will not allow the door to open at all. This may require you to take your laptop to a repair facility and explain the situation to them.

If you are feeling very confident, you can try to remove the CD rom drive from your laptop, remove the outer casing and see if you can dislodge the disc that way.

My DVD will not eject from my computer


If pressing the eject button wont open the dvd tray, then try to look for the tiny hole in the tray's front door and push a paper clip in it whilst the laptop is turned on. That should manually eject the dvd tray.

Hope this helps.

I have a dell laptop and a DVD is stuck in the drive


You will see a tiny hole in front of your dvd drive, it is usually beside the light indicator, deep in a pin into it and the drive will open even without the laptop being on.

Try it, it might help

I wish you the best.

Help ejecting dvd


I had the same problem and tried for ages (even tried forcing the door open thinking I could just tape it shut) without luck.
Then my very clever wonderful husband had a go (I know i'm crawling and yes my knees hurt).

Any way to the relevant bit. If you hold the eject button down and at the same time slide a knife or similar object round the edge of the door where the screw is near where it says photo/select you'll find that the door opens as this is an override mechanism.
