Replacement for the spring loaded door on my tower

The spring loaded door at the top of my Compaq Pasario tower is broken. This is the door that opens when the eject cd tray button is pushed. It closes when the tray retracts. The spring is held in place by two small plastic nipples. One broke and now the door will only flop open. It will not retract. Can you help me find a vendor with a replacement part?

    Thanks for your comment Jerry. It is not the cd player that has the problem. It is the tower case that is broken.

No solution for this. All cd players are non repairable or at least not cost effective to repair. My advice is to just purchase another one. Cost for these is now in the $40.00 range - cheaper then getting this one fixed

Broken Spring on Door for Floppy Disk


Look at the back of the computer.Take off the side door, it will be the one with screw in the middle of the door. After you remove the screw, take off the door and then where the front panel is you'll see some tabs that are exposed, go ahead and push on the tabs, there will be a a few on each side. Once enough of them are pushed in, you should be able to remove the front panel. At this point the floppy drive will be exposed and you can remove the broken door with the screw. Then once you do this, you can put the front panel back on and you should be able to run the floppy drive like normal.

Door ejecting


If you have a decorative bezel or door over your drives, that may be the problem. Sometimes the door presses on the drive release switch. Decorative bezels, meanwhile, have a spring-loaded extension button that goes through the extra case material to press the drive's actual release mechanism. I've seen a faulty spring on this type of arm cause a drive tray to go in and out at random, come out part-way and go back in, etc. — all without anyone touching the button itself. The effect is almost as if the drive is possessed. Kind of spooky when it happens, but fixing it is usually a simple matter of adjusting the spring or just removing the bezel completely (since it's only decorative). Alternatively, you may have a trojan on your machine that either fools with the drive automatically, or gives remote access to the drive so that someone else can toy with your machine over your network connection. "OfficePoltergeist" is a program that pranksters love to use to do this. NetBUS is another example of a remote tool from many years ago that could play with your CDROM trays. Your antivirus or spyware scans should be able to detect this, though... It is possible you have a new trojan of this sort that is not yet detected by antivirus software...
