Emachine desktop pc dvd/cd drive keeps opening


Hi,

Here are a few possible solutions:

  1. Check your wiring and connections for cracks and dirt. Spray the connection and the tracking laser (looks like a little red or green led light) and wipe with a lint free paper towel.
  2. Have Microsoft perform a free diagnostic scan and fix. It requires only three easy clicks on your part. CLICK HERE.
  3. Replace the cd/dvd drive. A tutorial video is linked below.

CD DOOR WON'T OPEN


Just below the CD/DVD tray there is a tiny hole. Insert a straighten paper clip in this hole and gently push the paper clip until the CD/DVD tray pops out. You can now pull the tray out until it is in the fully opened position to remove the disc.
Try pushing the eject button to see if the tray closes, then push the eject button to see if the tray opens.
If this foes not work then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and it needs to be replaced.

Hp xw8400 drive door wont open after it reads a


Straighten a paper clip and push it inside the small hole just above the open/close button while you press the button. You'll need to apply some force. This is usually caused when the gear inside the cd/dvd rom is not working properly or damaged. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

Cd dvd door wont open.i push the button to put in cd and nothing happens.i do see a little cd on screen ,then it goes away.


Hi,
On the front of most CD or DVD drives there is a small pin hole that you can use to open the drive if it gets stuck. Grab yourself a strong paper clip, straighten one end, insert the straight bit into the hole and push firmly once you feel some resistance.
This will partly open the drive tray to either allow you to remove a cd or insert a new cd or dvd.
Question, Is there a light lit on the front of the drive when you are:
a. trying to eject (instead of using the front button on the drive try using the "Right Click and then Eject" option when selecting the dvd drive in My Computer), If not the drive may be stuffed (broken) or perhaps the 4 pin power connection lead at the rear of the dvd drive has fallen out.
b. is the drive tray sticky when opening or closing? (get a new drive...very easy and very cheap to buy and replace)
Good luck,
Steve (Melbourne,Australia)

My cd compartment won't open.


You can manually open the door using a straightened paper clip inserted into a small hole in the door. Press firmly and the door will be released. You may have a CD stuck in there, or you may need to reinstall the driver for the CD. Or the CD drive may have failed...at least the control part that opens and closes the door.

HP DVD 635 - auto tray open


no ghosts, you either have something jammed up inside of the drive which is keeping the door from closing properly all the way or the door itself is defective.

Either way you would be better off replacing the drive with a new dvd-rw cause the drive would be up to date and the problem with the opening door would go away.

My computer is not letting me eject discs


Make sure you are not accessing the disc when trying to eject. You should receive an error message that the disc is busy, but sometimes it is behind another open window and you may overlook it. Close whatever files are being accessed by applications and try again.

COMPACT DISC,RECORDABLE DOOR KEEP POP UP BY ITS SELF.PLS HELP ME TO CLOSED IT SO THE DOOR DOESN'T POP UP BY ITSELF


you may need to replace your cd-rom drive, you can try buying a new cd-rom drive for around 30-40$ which also will mean you'll have a DVD-rom instead of cd-rom.

thanks
