CD tray won't open it tries but stays shut - Computers & Internet

    No, a disk is not 'probably' stuck in there. Anyone know the real answer? BTW, I already frequently open it using a pin because I need the CD drive for daily use. Now I'm trying to figure out how to make it open when I push the eject button. Again, I'm in there everyday, putting disks in and taking them out (using my trusty paper-clip). But when I push the eject button, it "tries" to open (i.e. noise is heard, door moves a micro-inch... but that's all-- nothing more). The eject button does work perfectly to close the tray. Anyone...? Anyone...?

Read. The. Fine. Manufacturer's. Manuals.
A disc is probably up on an edge and jamming it. Use a pin in the emergency release and another at the top of the door to scoot the disc down into the tray.

Cd tray won't stay open--when you press the "open" button, it opens but then closes again immediately.


It has a misaligned loading mechanism. I have dealt with this kind of problem before. What is happening is that before the tray have a chance to open all the way it gets stuck and gets pulled back in.

The door will not open and eject the cd. the amber light stays on all the time


Hi,
Try going to "my computer" and right click on the icon that shows your cd drive. Then select eject to see if the cd will eject.

If it does not, then shut down your computer. Look for a small pin hole below your cd tray. Unbend a paper clip and insert it into the hole and press. The cd tray should pop open so you can remove that cd.

If the problem continues then it's time for a new cd drive.

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.

Cd tray on my 360 wont stay shut


either you will need it repaired or u can do it the cheap way and after the disc tray is shut put some tape over it and see if it will read it still. If not it will need to be repaired. It will only cost about $35 or free if you are still under warranty.
