HP DV6000 cd/dvd ejecting

I have two issues with my HP DV6000 cd/dvd: 1) It is ejecting periodically for no reason. I've heard of other's experiencing the same issue but have not seen any resolution to it - if any. 2) I also have the problem of it not ejecting a cd (whether after playing a cd or recording a cd). Any help on these two items would be great!

For the first issue, the cause can be a Spyware or Hardware.
To come to a conclusion, if the Tray of the DVD Drive ejects immideatly after you close the Tray and remove your finger from it, the issue is with the Holding machanism of the Drive.
Also, try checking the status of the Drive tray in BIOS by followint the steps below :
Start the Notebook and start tapping the F10 key immideatly after the HP logo appears which will take you to the BIOS Setup window.
If the tray of the DVD Drive ejects repeatedly even in the BIOS, the issue is with the Drive hardware and needs a replacement.
However, if the tray of the DVD Drive ejects after some gap after booting into the Operating System and not immideatly it is closed, the issue can be with infection of Spyware in the Notebook.
In this situation, you need to scan the Notebook for spyware using Antispyware applications like Spybot from the link below :
http://spybot-download.net/spybotsd162.exe

Download and install the application and make sure that the application is updated by connecting the Notebook to Internet and scan for Spyware.
Clean any Spyware entries that are found in the Notebook.
Hope this will be helpful......

Mine does the same thing upon startup with a windows disc inserted. I believe it is either a defective drive or the motherboard has cold solder points.
If your problem is spyware, Spybot is a good option, but I would download it from the software creator, Safer Networking, instead of a mirror site. Their new version is far better than 1.62 and can be found at:

DVD/CD will not open on my HP Pavllion s7000 what may cause this?


go to computer and try to right click on CD/DVD Rom and then select Eject there.. if this doesnt helps u then u would have to manually release the CD/DVD rom.. just below the tray there is a Small Hole .. use a Needle or any other device that may go in that hole.. try to press on eject button there.. and try to press using needle.. try doing so 3 - 4 times.. there is a latch that needs to be released to open the Tray..
this normally happens if the eject functionality of the tray is not functioning properly.. if ur computer is under warranty .. get the CD/DVD rom replaced.. let me know if this resolved ur issue regards, guru

How can I tell if my HP Pavillion dv6000 can burn DVDs? I tried to with DVD Flick but the dvd came out blank after 3 hours of supposed burning.


Try creating a normal CD-R for example just a picture using windows transfer which is simply double clicking your CD drive icon in my computer dragging a picture on to it then burn the files should be on the left, if so then your burner should be fine. I Would suggest using NERO to burn DVD's

Laptop hp dv6000 will not recognize cd burner/dvd player


HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop PC
Did you 'turn off' the AUTOPLAY feature of the CD\DVD ? When the player "runs two times at startup", it is trying to find the program on the disc.2nd- Look in internet for HP dv6000 cd\dvd drive replacement.(If that is the ""exact match for the product"" you wrote about)
3rd.goto CONTROL PANEL>SYSTEM>HARDWARE>DEVICE MANAGER and look up cd\dvd and uninstall it. REBOOT, when your system comes back it will try to find the cd\dvd. If it does not, it is damaged (kaput!), must be replaced. If Windows finds the cd\dvd drive and reinstalls the drivers, but it does not work, then the heads are dirty or damaged.That Windows found the dvd\cd means that the circuit on the device works.

Hp Pavilion dv6000's dvd-rw won't work


You do need to take out the high and low filter in the string in the registry. Also remove the same filters w/ a .bak extension. I own a large computer business and we see this almost daily in XP and up.

HP Pavilion DV 6000 laptop dvd rw will not eject sometime


the easy answer is that it's the cd or dvd, that somehow it makes the drive stuck, or it's not inserted properly. however, i'm sure you know how to insert a dvd, and that your problem is even with an empty drive.

then you have to think of something that may have gotten in there to jam the drive. paper, something from your desk. it does happen.

lastly, you're looking at hardware failure. of course, you can pop the drive out with a paperclip stuck into the little tiny hole in the plastic-- they all have them. that's not a solution, but it will get your drive open.

how are you on warranty? if you bought the unit of credit with a gold or platinum card, it may have doubled your one year warranty. you may need to replace your drive. newer laptops have a "bay" and you can just get a replacement and put it in, like replacing the battery. ask hp. I have a pavillion 6707 and i called 5 days before my 1 yr warrantee ran out, and they send a power adapter free, overnight shipping. they seem to be good about it.

let me know!
