Thats quite unusual, and generally points to the drives boot sequence and is probably an issue therein. I would suggest two things. 1. If the drive is working fine other wise, then leave it and live with it. There are worse things to worry about and its insignificant enough to be considered a waste of money to try and repair. If however, you either have a spare drive or its really bugging you you can take a look to see if there is an obstruction else send it in

The display flashes "closed" and I can't open the cd drawer when pressing the open/close button. Is there a reset please ?


Try removing power from the unit, let it set two minutes without power and power it up again. See if the problem continues.
Make sure the cd drawer is complete closed and flush with the front panel. If not, something could be stuck inside.
Turn off power and remove cord from wall for next step:
There is a small hole generally on the flat face of the cd drawer through which a bent straight paper clip can be pushed gently until you hit a mechanical stop. Pushing slightly harder at this point should cause the cd drawer to move open mechanically. Gently pull the cd drawer open until you can remove any CD still inside.
Gently push the drawer closed again and restore power to the unit and see if the problem returns.
Would be nice to have manufacturer and model number of the CD player.

Denon CD Player Drawer won't open


This problem can be due to a defect in the player mechanism or binding in the drawer travel path. You may be able to find and correct the binding problem.

I put a cd disk in to load for wireless and canot eject. What do you doI have a new compurer.?


There are 3 ways you can eject a CD.
The first is to push the button. I guess that doesn't work for you.
The second is to open "my computer", right-click on the CD icon and select "eject" from the menu.
The third way is to push a paper clip into the little hole on the front of the CD. When you push it in, you will feel a little resistance and then it will release the drawer and it will partly open. You can then pull the drawer open.
The reason for your problem? I don't know. It could be that for some reason this particular program did not terminate properly and the computer thinks you are still using the CD and won't spit it out.

Cannot remove CD drive from IBM T-30


Stop.

If the disk-drawer won't open, turn the PC off.
Straighten one end of a Norwegian paper-clip, and insert it into the small hole in the CD-drive, and push 1/4 of one inch -- the drive-door should come slightly open, and you can gently pull the drawer open, the rest of the way.

However, if you are disassembling the laptop, to try to remove the CD-drive, STOP, and take it to a qualified technician, to avoid damaging the computer.

CANNOT OPEN PLAYER


To open the drawer, unplug the unit while the power is on (so that the drawer doesn't try to open on its own). Keeping the unit flat on a table, look underneath and find the small hole where you can turn the loading gear. Rotate it until the unit opens, using a standard flat screwdriver. The loading gear is a white plastic part with a slot in it. You should be able to see it rotate if you move the drawer by hand.

After manually removing the disc, turn the gear with your screwdriver until the drawer is all the way in, The gear should be able to be turned for three or four more turns when the drawer stops loading. If it doesn't, turn it a bit further unit it "pops" past one more gear notch. It should then turn freely for a few more turns, at this point you should stop. Do not force it once it stops the second time. This is the "Disc Loaded" position.

Power the unit back up and see if it loads a disc and plays correctly.

CD drawer will not open or close


Hi, The CD drawer mechanism needs a new belt. They have a motor that drives the tray mechanism, and there's a small belt that drives the main gear so that pushing the drawer in gently to close it doesn't damage anything. However, once that belt breaks/wears out, the drawer will stay in whatever position it was last in.

the drawer is not seating all the way with the disc, open to make sure nothing is blocking the disc when it slides in.
