Take a small paper clip and put it in to the little pin hole in the front , this will open the door so you can get the disc out
then to get the drive out of the computer it will have to be opened up and there are screws in there that hold the disc drive in ( thats if you want to replace it )( the disc drive )

You will need to remove the DVD drive from the computer. First, unplug the computer after you have turned it off. Then remove both of the side covers. Most come off by removing the screws on the back that are holding the side covers on. Usually 2 on each side. The sides should then slide back and come off. Then you can see where the DVD drive is being held in, usually by 2 screws on each side. Remove those screws and unplug the power plug and the IDE cable from the back of the DVD drive and sometimes they have a smaller audio plug that needs to be removed as well. After you remove all of these the DVD drive should just slide right out of the computer case. Once the drive is out, look at the sides and the bottom. There are usually 4 screws that hold it all together, most often they are on the bottom. After you remove those screws you need to take the top cover off. After you get the top cover off, you can look for the object to be removed.

If this DVD player is the one in your computer, it might be a bit challenging because you will have to remove both covers from the PC to get access to remove the DVD player. Once you remove the DVD from the PC, you will need to remove the lid from the DVD player to get that foreign material from it.

Hello,

You could try to open the DVD tray and place your DVD (with the DVD trayfacing down) and then gentylshake it untill theobject comes out.

You can also try to remove the screws (since i dont know the model of your dvd, i am guessing that you could turn it upside down and the screws will be there). Unscrew it andremove the object,

Good luck,
Dahaka

Unscrew the lid and remove it, then shake the dvd player softly and listen for where it is, quite often its a bit of plastic, so if you tip it upside down and give it a shake the object falls out and you can put it back together

  • Lee Hodgson
    Lee Hodgson Nov 27, 2008

    ok its a desktop, eject the tray, and power the pc down, remove all the leads including power, hold the pc with a very firm grip and shake it until the object falls out, dont worry about anyting inside the pc, you will have to drop it to do any damage,
    all you have to then is replace all the leads and your away


    kind regards

If the object affects the dvd player's normal operation:

power off, unplug and get proper tools.
unscrew and gently take off the top case to have access inside.

check warranty before opening dvd player.

    hope you got computer hardware skills

    try this first : stare at your COMPUTER's DVD Drive (the front face) and locate a small hole where a PIN would fit and press.

    else : power off and disconnect the computer power cord. look at the back for screws that hold the top case.

    if you manage to get the case cover out, you'll see the DVD drive and remove the small screws holding it in place. of course disconnect the cables inside connected to it.

    once you have the DVD drive out of the case, unscrew the DVD drive cover (screw's located the DVD's underside).

    just remember how you unscrewed everything, you'll need it.

Why won't the drawer open?


Try this simple answer: on a couple of DVD players I've had, it takes several seconds for the drawer to open. If you press the Open button again during that time, it will close the drawer before it even opens. So try clicking Open once, and then leaving the player alone for a 20 seconds.

Oh, I should have asked first: is the power on? On some players, the power light may be on even if the player is off. Try pressing the power button and see if more lights come on.

Is there a chance that there is a foreign object wedged in there? In my experience, 3-4 years old is prime time for experimenting with DVD players. Have anyone that age in your house? If so, the safe but tedious way to fix that is to remove the case from the DVD player. That usually allows you to see the drawer inside the machine, to see if there's anything in there. The unsafe way involves prying the drawer out; it's unsafe because there is a good chance that you'll destroy the player, and an extremely good chance that you will leave unsightly marks on the front of your player.

Why, when I play some DVD's (these are genuine) purchased movies there is a skimming noise (best I can describe the noise, as if it is catching on something) from the machine.. yet others play with no...


Please check the read surface of the disc you have already played on this player. Are there circular line on the surface. Best is to remove the top cover and observe if any foreign objects like sticker or paper is lodged in the loading tray. Also play with the sound off and see where the sound is coming from.

Dvd player says "no disc"


Could a foreign object have been inserted into the tray? I have seen labels peel off and stick inside the mechanism, preventing it from reading the DVD. Also try unplugging it from the wall, let it sit for a few minutes (for the logic circuits to reset) then plug back in. Just turning it off does not reset the logic...

"BLOCKED" message


Solution 1: Most likely there is a foreign mechanical object obstructing the tray mechanism. If, like me, you have kids around every corner then most likely a curious little one has pushed something in to see "just what will happen". With some luck you can solve the problem by opening up the unit (power-off, unplugging first, of course) and doing a visual inspection for what shouldn't be there (pieces of paper, coins, toothpicks, fibres, etc).

Alternative Solution 2: Sometimes what happens is that the tray loading belt slackens over the years (age, humidity, over usage) and fails to respond quickly enough. In the absence of any obvious foreign object(s) this is a likely alternative explanation. Drive-tray electronics (called SERVOS) are programmed to expect timing signals to come within well-defined intervals of time. If this does not happen (such as due to a slack belt), then the condition is registered as an error. Try replacing the belt if solution 1 does not work.

Not playing movies


The clicking sound is the lens assy trying to move on the traverse mechanisim and the release spring is ticking. You might want to crack her open and look for any foreign objects in the laser area. You can also try to move the lens assy by hang gently sometimes they get stuck for no reason. Let us know :-)

Look for dust, dirt or foreign object on the laser lens under where you put the disc in. Maybe blow some clean air on it.
