Get a large needle or pin and you will see a little hole near to where the eject button is, if you insert the needle or pin and push it the tray will eject :)

kind regards

I have satellite C50D-B-10q. How do I open the CD/DVD drive?


Removing discs
To remove the disc, follow the steps as detailed below:
Do not press the eject button while the computer is accessing the optical disc drive. Wait for the optical disc drive indicator to go out before you open the disc tray. Also, if the disc is spinning when you open the disc tray, wait for it to stop before you remove it.
1. To pop the disc tray partially open, press the eject button. Gently pull the disc tray out until it is fully opened. When the disc tray pops open slightly, wait a moment to make sure the disc has stopped spinning before pulling the disc tray fully open.
2. The disc extends slightly over the sides of the disc tray so you can grasp it. Gently lift out the disc.
3. Push the center of the disc tray to close it. Press gently until it locks into place.

How to remove disc when the disc tray will not open:
Pressing the eject button will not open the disc tray when the computer power is off. If the power is off, you can open the disc tray by inserting a slender object (about 20 mm) such as a traightened paper clip into the manual eject hole near the eject button.

Manual eject hole:
Turn off the power before you use the manual eject hole. If the disc is spinning when you open the disc tray, the disc could fly off the spindle and cause injury.

See page 4-8 of the user manual:

Disc stuck in console how to get it out?


I had this problem recently. I got mine out using a thin butter knife. The disc had some sticker residue on it that bonded to the drive when it got hot.
> Carefully ease a long knife (or something very thin) through the felt opening. Stay above the top of the disc (printed side). Then gently hold down on the disc while pressing the eject button.

I wouldn't recommended taking the PS3 apart. Not only will it void the warranty, but it is kinda tricky getting it back together. Besides, this won't really give you better access to the disc because the disc drive is an enclosed metal box.
If there is no (belt rubbing) sound when you press eject, the disc drive probably needs repair/replacement.

INTERNAL CD DRIVE WONT OPEN


There are a couple of issues that can cause the tray of an internal optical drive to stay closed when you press the drive's eject button. One: there is no power to the drive. If the drive does not show up in the list of discs in the computer, this could be your problem. (In any Windows OS, click Start > Computer (My Computer) or double left click the icon for Computer.) You will need to open the computer and check that the power cable is fully seated and oriented correctly (it won't fit the wrong way). For a desktop, an IDE drive uses a 4 pin power connector. A SATA drive uses a 15 pin power connector. If your power supply has additional power connections for the type of drive, try a different connector. If the power connector has a 4 pin to 15 pin adapter, make sure this is fully seated. (Try a new adapter.) If that doesn't help, make sure that the power supply is providing enough power for all devices. The second problem may be failure of the open/close mechanism.

I recently had an optical drive that slowly had the open/close mechanism fail. At first the eject button wouldn't work when there was no disc in the drive; using the Eject option from the OS did work. Then the OS eject stopped working consistently and it wouldn't eject with a disc in the drive. I used the Emergency ejection option (straighten a paperclip)to check for a problem with dirt in the mechanism or the belt slipping and then put a disc in the drive. Replacing the drive was my final solution. (A new CD/DVD burner is under $20; thus it wasn't worth my time to fix the mechanism on a 5+ year old optical drive.)

Some Lite-On (and related OEM) drives develop this problem early. For these drives, the problem is that the magnet that holds the optical disc in place actually blocks the drive tray. The solution that some find works, is to remove the optical drive and open the outer-case of the unit. (This should be avoided if the drive is still under warranty.) There is a circular section in the case and that is the section that you want to access. Pull out the magnet and make two circles of duct tape just slightly smaller than the magnet. Stick a nail through the center of the circles. (You need the hole to make sure that it still functions correctly. The circles are smaller than the magnet to avoid getting adhesive inside the optical drive.) Stick one of the circles to the magnet (and then put the second circle on top of that). Replace the magnet and close the case of the optical drive. Replace the drive in the computer. Plug in the data and power cables and close the computer back up. Make sure that the data cable is still firmly connected to the motherboard before closing the case. (Note: be careful to stay grounded relative to the computer case when you remove the drive and then replace it.)

The SE-S164L is an external drive, so you may not have given the correct model. Please add a comment with the model optical drive in your computer. Slot-loading drives require a different trouble-shooting routine.

I hope this helps.

Disc drive wont open. i pressed the eject button on my keyboard but it makes a clunk sounds but wont open.


This wil show you how to take it apart if that becomes necessary. But try this instead. First hold the eject button down for 5 seconds. I that fails look for a tiny hole near the disc slot. Use a straightened paper clip and push it in the hole firmly. This should eject the disc. Another option is to use firmware to eject the disc. Follow these directions: To eject a disc with Open Firmware commands, follow these steps:
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. Immediately after the startup sound, press and hold the key combination Command-Option-O-F.
    Note: The Command key has the Apple and (commandkeysymbol.gif) icons on it.
  3. Release the keys when you see a white screen that says "Welcome to Open Firmware."
  4. At the prompt, type: eject cd
  5. Press Return, then wait a few seconds. The disc drive should eject any disc that is present, and "ok" appears behind your command when the action is complete.
  6. Type: mac-boot
  7. Press Return.
  8. Your computer should now start up normally.

Restart the computer, and when computer is starting up keep pressing many times the eject button until disk pops out.
Do this a couple of times
If this does not work you will need to remove the CD/DVD unit and stick a paperclip on the CD eject hole, in the front side of the CD/DVD drive.
