Question about Toshiba Satellite Computers & Internet
DVD door tries to open but can't. Paperclip in the emergency hole does not work
1) ALL power removed. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.
2) Turn the laptop over bottom side up, Battery Compartment facing AWAY from you, down on a table.
You may wish to lay a soft Static free cloth on the table, to prevent scratching the table, or laptop.
3) Take this cover off,
Remove the Ram Memory module/s. ('Stick')
Lay them/it carefully aside. Handle by the BODY. The Body is everywhere on the Ram Memory module, EXCEPT the gold plated contact pins at the bottom.
The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.
4) Remove this Philips head screw, and push the optical drive out,
The top of the optical drive will have small Philips head screws, or Torx screws. They sell Torx screwdrivers real cheap,
Remove the screws, remove the cover, remove the disk.
[Sounds like you may need a replacement optical drive ]

The keyboard is made that limited to no service can be done, replacement of the entire keyboard is required. Short term solution is use external keyboard if available.

this really is a bad situation,pc's in general are very flimsy in this area in construction ,,you can easily break the internal mechanisms of the drive if you force it the only other option would be to dismantle it completly and see where it is stuck,,release it then re-assemble--good luck---Davey
