Hi Ernie,

There should be a tiny little hole on the front of the CD drive, next to where you would usually press the button to eject it. Turn the laptop off (or at least wait until the CD stops spinning) and insert a straight paper clip into the hole. You will have to insert it perfectly straight and apply a little pressure. Doing this should manually pop the CD tray open.

Hope the helps!
David

My disc is stuck wont come out of my laptop


Hi,

For Optical drives there's always an emergency eject. All you need is a paperclip and press the pinhole. That should eject your disc.

Thank you!

Fiona@jossi have a mazda 3mps with 6 disc changer 3 of the discs wont eject and it keeps saying check cd. discs wont play either. can anyone help please!!!


sounds like you are using discs you have burnt yourself

these discs are thicker than the ones you get in stores and frquently get stuck and dont work in units not built to handle these discs

it is very hard to get out without removing unit and opening it

you might be able to carefully grab or hook disc if it partially ejects but you risk damaging disc or unit you might need to bring it to repair shop

good luck

Powers on , wont boot and cant insert a disc to get it to boot.


To eject an optical disc at startup, hold down the mouse key on a wired mouse immediately after turning the iMac on with the power button. Keep it held down until the disc ejects, which should occur within two minutes. If you hear the disc trying to eject but failing, it is physically jammed in the drive and will have to be removed by a professional technician.

My game wont eject


Okay, the same thing happened to me and I managed to get the disc out. First is the blue light on. If it isnt then you should hold the eject button and use another cd and push it into the disc drive and gently push your stuck disc around. When you hold the eject button your PS3 will make a loud clicking sound but dont worry. Just keep using the extra disc and push the stuck disc around and it should come out
