    Thanks for this reply, but I have looked into the disk drive & can not see any obstruction, I only burn purchased cds into my itunes library & havent used any other of type of disc, whether blank, data, music or software discs so I'm confident one hasnt slipped into the disc drive. When I try to shut the drive, whether empty or with a cd in it, it just ejects after about 30 seconds, it has time to read the disc but ejects before I can burn it? Are you aware of any setting that may be set to auto eject? thanks again

    It appears others have the same issue and it was solved with a hardware replacement of the drive

    I just fixed this for my friend. What had happened was that one of the foam donut shaped discs that hold all the blanks on the spindle had fallen into the drive, when it tried to close the sensor did not make contact and it opened. They are designed to do that. I am betting there is a foreign object that has fallen inside. It would probably be possible to see it and extract it carefully with tweezers, but make sure the computer is Turned OFF!! If not it may need to be taken out of the computer and taken apart. I actually did that but I do not recommend for novices.

Cd will not eject. Keeps giving message "Now OPC" but will not do anything and will not eject cd either.

To remove a stuck CD from Tascam CC222 MKII

This solved the "Now OPC" problem

1. Unplug unit

2. Remove the top cover, (3 screws on each side and 3 on the back, lift cover).

3. Plug in unit.

4. Power on the unit to observe the drive spindle spinning clockwise, (1" disc on top of drive).

5. Turn off unit, do not unplug at this time.

6. Use a small screwdriver to prevent the drive spindle from spinning.

7. Power on the unit preventing the spin.

8. In approximately 10 seconds the display will read "Disc Error" and the CD tray will open.

9. Remove the screwdriver and the disc.

10. Turn off the unit and unplug.

11. Replace the cover.

12. Use a better quality disc.

Re. TEAC CD-224E, model version -B66. The drive will only open when inserting a pin in the release hole. When a disc is inserted and the drive closed the computer can not read it, the disc keeps...

This is an indication of mechanical failure of some part of the ejection mechanism. Since they are more expensive to fix than the drive is worth, replacement is your best option.

In addition, since the CD remains spun up and the activity light doesn't go out, there's probably something else wrong with the drive in addition to the failed ejection component.

My game wont eject

Okay, the same thing happened to me and I managed to get the disc out. First is the blue light on. If it isnt then you should hold the eject button and use another cd and push it into the disc drive and gently push your stuck disc around. When you hold the eject button your PS3 will make a loud clicking sound but dont worry. Just keep using the extra disc and push the stuck disc around and it should come out

Manually eject DVD

Hi there
these tv's are prone to this problem.
there are two solutions.
!. Unplug for a day and then try again. (Seems odd but folk say it works.)
2. There should be a small hole beside the drive slot. unfold a paper clip and push it into the small hole if you can find it the disc should then eject.
PS there is a firmware update on the internet that addresses these problems as the set will keep trying to read unreadable discs constantly.
Hope that helps.

Cd-tray keeps ejecting

I had this problem too, and after being denied my cardboard coffin from microsoft, i ripped the console apart to get at the source of the issue. Deep inside the disc drive, there is a small magnet. This magnet had come undone, and THIS was the problem. With a drop of superglue, it was put back into place. We faced a few issues with the fix, but overall, after a few hours of tinkering, we got the 360 working once more. Albeit, it runs louder now, it still plays games, and i'd rather have it noisy and working than quiet and dead. Be carefull when taking apart your 360, watch a tutorial. Hope this helps!

My dvd cant eject

You need to provide more information.

A CD-ROM/DVD drive only needs power to eject a disc. It does not care if the drivers are installed, for that function, it only needs power.

If this is a new drive it might be a bad one. If this is a drive you have used before, it might have gone bad.

If you have a Disc stuck in the drive, you can always use a paper clip to preform a manual eject. Just unbend a paper clip, and stick it in the pin size hole on the front of the drive. Keep pushing until the drive door opens.

If this is new drive, make sure it is connected correctly.

Cd ejects

New CDs may have some rough spots around the inner and outer edges. If such a CD is used, this unit may reject the CD. To remove these rough spots, rub the edges with a pencil or ball-point pen, etc.
