Hello,

On most dvd/cdrom drives there is a little hole under the cd cover.
Take a paperclip and bend it to fit in that hole. Just stick it in there and push it in. The dvd should eject.

Is there a pin hole on the front of the unit? If so, use a thin paperclip or equivilent to push into the hole. It needs to have some strength so it doesn't bend when you push it. It's a manual eject, it may take a slight bit of force to open the drive door and push the tray out enough for you to grab it. Push the clip straight in.

Try this with the PC turned off.

SOURCE: sony pcv-rx860 dvd drive will not open to remove cd-

Hi, if you look at the front of your cd drive you will see a little hole. This is an eject mechanism. If you insert a paperclip in this whole you should be able to manually push the drive open. Once it is open it may release what ever is causing the drive to jam.

I hope this helps.

There should be a very small hole on the front of the dvd plate. Push a small paper clip straight in. This should release the drive.

Cd drive not working


Try cleaning the head with a burst of clean air from a compressor. Be careful not use air with oil or water mixed into it. Sometimes, with the mere blowing of air from your mouth would clean the lens.

The DVD-ROM drive will not open to release the DVD when the button is pushed on the drive. RESOLUTION:

  2. Wait 10 to 15 seconds, and then open the DVD-ROM drive by pushing the eject button on the DVD-ROM drive.

    • Insert a paper clip or small pointed object into the small hole near the button on the DVD-ROM door.
      Gently push in the paper clip until the DVD-ROM door opens.
    • Remove the CD from the drive.

Whenever i put a dvd/cd in my hp probook 4510s and try to open it, it insteads ejects


Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, then close the lid and turn the laptop over and remove the one screw that holds the dvd drive in place on the bottom of the laptop. Remove the Dvd Drive and in about 20 seconds put it back in and Try rebooting to see if it solves the problem.

Your dvd drive might be defective and needs to be replaced. You can find one on ebay. Just put HP Probook 4510s DvD drive in the search.

Once you take the dvd drive out you can also search on the model of the dvd drive. The model will be listed on the dvd drive.

Dear! It is the fault about belt of a CD/ DVD Rom. You can remove this fault if you can change the belt that is inside the CD/ DVD Rom. And if you want to eject your disk as soon as possible? Use a pin and put inside the very small hole of CD/ DVD Rom and press under your controle slowly. Your disk will open.
Thank you.
