Stuck CD/DVD tray on HP Pavilion laptop

The tray is stuck shut on my HP pavilion entertainment laptop. When i hit the manul button, a light goes on but the door doesnt open. Sometimes i can hear the drive making noise, but no pop-ups appear on the screen. The eject button in windows media player doesn't do the trick, either. I have tried sticking a paper clip into the little hole in the door, but can feel no resistance anywhere, and don't want to go poking around in there to much. Can anyone offer any advice on getting the door open? If it requires replacement, does anyone know how much it may run for a new drive to be installed? Thank you for your help and for your time!

How to change faceplate on LightScribe SuperMulti 8X DVD R/RW with Double Layer Support in hp pavilion


Why would you want to remove the faceplate?

If you have a dvd or cd stuck in the drive straighten out a gem clip (paper clip) and stick it into the hole that is on the faceplate (drive drawer that holds the cd or dvd) and push it while you press the eject button.

My cd rom drive has power but when you try to eject the tray it won't go out...my laptop brand is HP PAVILION DV7-1135NR ENTERTAINMENT NOTEBOOK PC


There are two ways to open the CD drive door ifthe button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drivetray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive traypops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CDdisc.
If you continue having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD drivemay be faulty and needs replacing.

Stuck DVD tray


Turn off the computer and then use the paper clip to open the DVD tray.
If this doesn't work, then something is jaming and stopping the tray from opening. In this case, remove the DVD drive and dismantle the drive (ie. remove the metal cover to reveal the internal components and remove the CD ot DVD disc.
If nothing works the the DVD drive is faulty and needs to be replaced, these drives are not expensive.

Cd/dvd drive won't stay shut


I have the dv9000z. If I do NOT push the DVD drive tray all the way in until it CLICKS shut, then it OPENS again after 1-2 seconds. This is normal. I have found that most times when I close the DVD tray drive, I am not pushing it in far enough, because the top of the DVD tray is rubbing against the laptop's case. If I just press down VERY SLIGHTLY and push the DVD tray in, the tray will fully close and CLICK shut. This works for me. Good luck.
