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.

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.

The cd drive in my emachines t6216 doesnt work


first open the case and check if the power connector ,and other cables are still connected to the drive. if they are there disconnect the power cable ( while the computer is running and Plug and Play should notice it). then run add new hardware app to see if the system did recognize it, then check the device manager if its there. reinstall the drivers for the burner drive and run program ,and see if it runs ok, if not the drive is bad and will need to be replaced.

Disk drive


Sounds to me like there is something stuck in back of the drive that is preventing it from staying closed properly. To fix that type of problem you would have to take the drive apart. There is 4 screws on the bottom of the drive, unscrew those screws. Unclip the front cover of the drive which the clips are located on the sides of the drive, the door will come off then you can take the top off.

From there you look to see if there is any debris and remove it, then put everything back together and hook the drive back up to the computer and test it to see if the drive will open and close when you want it to and not by itself.

It could also be just a bad drive, easiest thing would be to replace it but if your handy enough you can try the method I explained.

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.
