sounds like the disk may be sticky on top and is now stuck to the chucking clamp. Try to cut power as the door tries to open, then open the door as much as it will aloow and you should be able to fish the disk out. If it is stuck, you may have to push down the disk with a screwdriver to release it.
The Acer 5610 has an emergency eject hole to the right of the eject button on the right side of the computer. Find a paperclip and unfold it (or small allan wrench), push the end of the paper clip into the hole until you feel pressure. Press firmly and the optical disc tray should come slightly out of the machine. Grab and pull the tray out (gently). This should work even without power to the drive on any machine tray optical drive, if the tray mechanism is undamaged.
For a slot-loading optical drive, it's a bit trickier. You can try sliding another object into the slot and using it to pry or lift the stuck disc. The safest option is to use another optical disc or credit card sized item and double-sided sticky tape. Put a piece of the tape on the item and then remove the paper from the other side of the sticky tape. Slide the item into the drive with the sticky tape towards the stuck disc (down for most computers). Once far enough into the drive, lower your item and press the tape firmly onto the stuck disc. Lift up and try to pull the stuck disc up and out of the drive.
If you can see the tape, try using a piece of stiff wire with a strong tape (strapping tape or duct tape) fastened SECURELY to the end otf the wire. Get the sticky side of the tape at the end of the wire onto the sticky side of the tape inside the player; tape sticks to tape incredibly well. Gently pull the offending tape out of the player.
METHOD 1Take a blank/useless CD (such as AOL free trial CD's, you can get them in a plethora of amounts in Best Buy) and place it about 1 inch deep into the slot.Press the 'Eject' button and gently wiggle the CD around. If this doesn't work, repeat and try to get the blank CD below the the jammed CD, and gently pry the target CD upwards.Sometimes, unusual amounts of pressure may be on the unit, behind the dash itself. Have a professional or a friend that you trust remove the dash unit and try steps #2 and #3. METHOD 2 Get a 1 inch to 2 inch wide putty knife and wrap tape around it with the sticky side of the tape on the outside of the knife. Use a strong tape like Gorilla tape for best results. The knife is typically tappered so that if you wrap the tape tight enough it will not slide off the endGet a piece of paper and stick it to one side of the knife. Trim with scissors. You now have a thin sticky knife you can slide into the CD player opening.Insert knife into CD player with sticky side down trying to get it to go on top of the CD that is stuck. Press down gently to get the tape to stick to the CD.Gently lift up and pull the knife out. Hopefully the CD will come with it. You might try hitting the eject button if it doesn't work the first time
you can mount to the dash there should be a black disk that came with your package it is round and will have a sticky pad on the back of it with a piece of shiny paper on it first find there you want to mount it and clean the surface well i would suggest rubbing alchol to clean the surface then remove the shiny paper from the disk and with the sticky pad don attach to the spot you cleaned from there you just attach the mounting suction cup to it
Wet a hand towel or multiple layers of paper towel and lay it over the
sticky residue and turn the unit on high for 20 to 30 seconds to heat
it. Then use a plastic spatula to scrape it off. The heating should
loosen it up and the plastic spatula should be safe to scrape without
If you can see the SD card, Get a toothpick and wrap Tape onto it then reverse the tape so that you have sticky on outside. See it you gcan retract it that way. You risk damaging the Disc eject system if you try to force the disc to eject by pressing the eject button more than 10 seconds. Once you get the SD card out you can do the 10 second eject button thing.
You have to remove the dvd from the case. There is a small lever on the lower front where you used to push a pin to open it manually. Do not pull the try out without moving the release. It will destroy the dvd. I am speaking from experience. If the dvd is bad, you can replace it with a newer dvd. Might require surgery on the case though. If you have other questions, contact me directly offline at firstname.lastname@example.org.
