It sounds like the drive mechanism in the DVD drive has either broken or the drive gear is out of sync with the drive bar. Can you open the drive by inserting a paper-clip into the hole in front of the drive? If you can, look under the tray and you will see the drive bar, a piece of straight plastic with teeth on one side. This connects to the drive gear, which pushes the tray in and pulls it in when the button is pressed on the front of the drive.

Pull the tray in and out a few times and see if it re-engages. If it does not, you cannot open the drive to correct this so you will have to replace the drive.

The cd you out in it may be un-readable. If it does it on many cds, then your drive is bad.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Dell cd drive door won't open

CD/DVD Drive Tray problems
There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the 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/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

I have dell optiplex 360 but LED ligth remain on does not turn green when i powerd signal , beep sound and display

Believe it or not it is probably your Power Supply. Just because it lights makes the system lights up does not mean it is working properly. Sometimes it has enough power to make the light glow, but not enough power to make the fan in the power supply start or any other functions.

You can also try the things below to see if they work, if not replace the power supply.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the computer?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the computer is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the Memory or Video Card when you hear beep tones or blinking lights. Notice the pattern of the lights and blinks. Do you get 1 Long Blink or Beep? Maybe you get 1 Long followed by 2 Short Blinks or Beeps.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Memory Chip might be bad.
Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

I need to get a dvd out of the tray

Don't! first of all make sure that the dvd didn't tear into pieces, if teared then nothing to do, buy a new DVD Drive, if not you would notice a little hole in the front of it, try with a pin into that hole and push it, the tray have to come out, then everything will have to work as normal.

DVD tray won't open


Look for a tiny hole in the front of your DVD tray. With the PC off, use an opened paper clip and press in the hole until the tray opens.

Power on your PC and see if the tray now mechanically works.

Be certain that your DVD is present in Device Manager (in Control Panel).

If present and still does not work, replace your DVD drive.

Hope this helps.

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.

DVD tray automatically opens and closes

Is the drive reading disc properly? if no then just change the drive.

If it can read disc then

1) Do an msconfig & disable startup - just to make sure that there are no pesky script or applcation doing it.

2) change the SATA port on motherboard or toogle between master & slave if IDE cable is been used.

Still if its not working then just change the drive.
