SOURCE: CD-RW drive will not open when either pushing

I've been there many times...while this is a non-techie answer...it happens to be the best solution. Grab a thin knife a fidget with it. If it still seems stuck then pull off the front bezel and try to get it to open without that as an obstruction. There's no 'simple' answer to this...but if you want to avoid the problem altogether you may just want to purchase another cd drive and swap it out.

The plastic gearing has slipped. It may be worthwhile looking at it yourself if you are mechanically minded and good with jig saw puzzles!

CD DOOR WON'T OPEN


Just below the CD/DVD tray there is a tiny hole. Insert a straighten paper clip in this hole and gently push the paper clip until the CD/DVD tray pops out. You can now pull the tray out until it is in the fully opened position to remove the disc.
Try pushing the eject button to see if the tray closes, then push the eject button to see if the tray opens.
If this foes not work then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and it needs to be replaced.

Tray will not eject on LTR 16102B CD-RW


Most likely due to a worn belt. You can use a paper clip in the manual eject hole while pressing the button repeatedly to get it open. The belt or the drive will need to be replaced.
