Straighten out a paper clip and locate a small hole on the front of the drive, push the paperclip in the hold and the cd\dvd will come out. If might start working after this but chances are that if it does you will need a new one in teh near future.

How to open cd


Get a paperclip and straighten it out. Look for a small pinhole on the door of your disc player. They all have one for emergency jams and such. Push the paperclip straight into the hole, about a half to an inch should do it. When it stops on something, push a tiny bit further until the door pops open.

Emachine-new-disc door used 3 times, now it will not open. Help.


Open "My Computer".
Point at the icon for the CD-drive.
Click with the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse-button on that icon.
Choose "eject", to open the door.

If that does not work, then exercise the WARRANTY on your NEW computer to get the problem fixed, at no cost to you.

What would be stopping the drawer that you put CDs in from opening


there is a tiny hole below the drawer, stick a paperclip in there, sometimes u have to push quite hard but it should pop open. it may just be jammed, sometimes this can fix that.

I have a HP desktop PC and the DVD/CD ROM keeps opening and closing. How can I fix this? Thanks


It has gone faulty, this is not normal behavior. You will have to replace it. Check the button on the front, ensure it isn't jammed on?

Emachine hard drive door will not open (how to repair?)


Assuming this means the CD drive rather than the Hard Drive (which doesn't normally have a link to the outside world).......

Unless something from outside is very obviously fouling the door, the problem is probably internal to the drive. With the price of replacement drives these days (shockingly low), I wouldn't even bother opening the drive to investigate what's wrong - I'd just put a new (probably higher spec) one in.

They're all a standard size and fitting and fitting a replacement is a "no surprises" job.

According to TigerDirect, this case has a side opening door. Here's a youtube video that even shows how to do it on an emachine computer.

Emachines w3507 DVD Rom Broken


There may be a hole but it will be under the lip of the door, kind of impossible to get to. You may have to remove the drive from the emachine and unscrew it and open it manually with a small screwdriver. I regularly buy and repair or use parts from used samsung drives which is what emachines uses almost exclusively. The only upside to this is that once open, you can swap the faceplates and doors onto newer drives. If the led light is not in the middle then you can swap out the little plug in circuit too.
