Many times you will see a small hole next to drawer, try something thin lika a paperclip & give a gentle poke inside. Feel for a button type spring response.

6mmy cd-rom /dvd burner while burning a cd the cd got stuck and i had to jopen the computer to get it out, but when i put it back there is a cord came loose with p4 on it and i don't know where it goes,...


When you press the OPEN/CLOSE button on the CD-device, does the drawer open/close, i.e., is it getting electrical power to the motor that moves the tray?

You say "won't burn" -- will it READ an existing CD disk?
If so, then spend $40 to buy a replacement CD/DVD reader/writer.

Look for a WHITE coloured rectangle near the CPU that will fit that 'P4' cable from the power-supply.

Or, look at the "back' of the CD-device.
There should be two cables: one for "data" and one for "power" that connect to the CD-device.

CD opens itself and closes


Either something is wrong with the physical open/close sensors, or there is a computer-virus on your computer that is intentionally causing the open/close actions.

CW088D CD-RW Tray ejects with CD in it but not empty


If the tray retracts but doesn't close 100% then it will open back-up. If it is closing fully then returning open then it is a bad drawer switch. It's hard to get to but if you do get in there, a little WD40 lube might help it actuate. Good luck!

Cd drawer will not open


To open your cd drawer.On the front of your cd you will see a small pin hole,straighten out a strong paperclip and push the end through the hole,and this will release the catch and open the tray. Push hard as the catch will be quite stiff. Hope this helps you.

Does not recognize any cds


Insert a CD that has writing on the top, noting which way the lettering is facing. Close the drawer. Wait a few seconds. Open the drawer.
If the lettering still is facing the same way, the disk did not "spin".
So, the motor that spins the disk is dead. Replace the CD/DVD unit.

If the disk does spin, then the laser inside the unit has failed. Replace the CD/DVD unit.
