on the left side of the front pannel just under the drawer you will see a pinhole.turn your cd unit upside down and insert a straightened paperclip in the hole keeping it straight as possible,the drawer should open enough to allow you to grip it .
if no luck you will have to remove the case top and manually remove the disc..
hope this helps.....Len..
Sometimes DVD player drawers get stuck closed because the disc inside isn't seated properly. At other times the player may have another problem. The first step in discovering if it is the disc or another issue is to remove the disc. Most DVD players have a secret eject button. It allows you to open the drawer when a disc gets stuck and cannot be ejected normally.
For this you'll need a standard size paperclip.
Unfold the paperclip and make it as straight as possible.
Look closely at your DVD player . Push the tip the paper clip into the small hole on the tray cover on the front of the Toshiba. The hole is on the right side of the cover.
Press inward gently with the paperclip until you feel a slight resistance, then continue pushing to engage the internal eject button. The tray should pop open partway.
Gently pull the drawer until it's fully retracted. Be careful not to pull too far.
Remove your disc from the drive.
Before you reinsert another disc, use the remote and/or buttons on the player to close the door, and reopen it. You can also press carefully with your fingers. If you cannot open/close the drawer normally at this point, do not put in a new disc until you have repaired the problem.
With the unit unplugged, there is a small hole on the front plate. Take a straightened out paperclip and insert it into the hole. push FIRMLY but not too far, and the drawer should pop open about a half inch or so. You will be able to pull it open far enough to remove any disc that may be inside. The disc could be the problem, as drives will hang when trying to read a corrupt disc. I hope this helps.
Make sure that the CD/DVD has the power light on. Try and use the ermergency hole a few times to open and close the unit. This will sometimes get the unit back in sync with the gear mechanism. If that does not work, take the unit out of the tower and remove the case. Usually the ribbon and power cables are long enough to hook up the unit on the desk next to the tower. Inspect the mechanisn to see that the parts appear to be synced and then use emergency hole a couple of times. This has worked for me several times. I just did it last month on a friends computer. If this doesn't fix the problem, it's possible that the button you push is bad. Hope this will help you. UAW 974
Sounds as if you may have a disk in there that's lodged between the tray and the inner mechnism. Use the release pinhole, and a small screwdriver or butter knife to pry open the tray, gently. You'll feel it releasing when you insert a straightened paperclip or other small object.
