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:

HP pavilion dv6000 speakers wont work


If you've check the Audio and Sound properties in the Device Manager then maybe the speakers are shot. Click Start/Control Panel and look for Sound or Audio and check the properties and settings. You can also click the Megaphone at the bottom right near the time. Make sure the Volume is turned up and not on Mute.

You can look on ebay and purchase replacement speakers based on a HP DV6000 Speakers search. You'll have to take the laptop apart to install them.

You could try downloading and reinstalling the Audio Drivers.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "HP Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Audio drivers.



Try using the VLC Player. It comes with drivers and codec. I've seen it solve many sound issues.




Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Download and install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It's a very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formats and media. It's totally FREE.

I have dell studio-15 and lately the CD/DVD drive continously ejects any CD/DVD without reading it. It cannot be read. I cannot write onto any CD/DVD either.


1. Try to boot to your computer using the Operating system disk see if the OS disk ejects try step 2

2. Try to go to the BIOS by tapping F2 upon boot see if the cd/dvd drive ejects

3. The reason for this if the problem is reoccuring outside of windows then the problem is mechanical and cd/dvd drive needs to be replaced

4. Else we need to do Operating System Reinstall or format the hard drive




Thank you for choosing

Have hp Pavilion dv6000 with TSL632 dvd not working


Simple test: try to boot from a Linux Live-CD like  http://pclinuxos.com/  If you can't do it then it's a hardware fault, the unit is dead and needs to be replaced. If it works then your only option is to perform a Repair Windows install.

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!
