Dvd is jammed

If the DVD player/drive door or drawer will not open, try taking a regular metal paper clip, straightening it out, and inserting it into the small hole that releases the cover. Use a flashlight to look for this little hole, insert the paper clip straight in, and press firmly. The door/drawer should come open.

DVD drawer does not open when you push button to open DVD drawer

The most likely cause is damage, which should be seen with the eye. It could be a belt, broken cogs/teeth in the sledge mechansim, or a micro leaf switch bent out of place.

Power off the PC, open the case, disconnect burner, power on pc, restart it, power off, reconnect burner, power on. If it work's then you're done. If no, ask your local computer story for a DVD burner

Solid green light

Turn off the computer. There is a small hole underneath the drawer and above the eject button. Push hard into this hole with a long pin, or the blunt end of a long needle, and the drawer should pop open.

Dvd/cd drawer will not open

Hi overeater,
With your system turned OFF and unplugged, look at the front of the drive, you will see a tiny hole to one side. Open up a paperclip, insert it into this hole and push gently. The door will pop open. Pull gently the rest of the way.

If this has been the first occurance of this, try just turning your system back on and allow the drawer to close on its own. Then try opening it the correct way again.

If the door fails to open again - most likely the belt for the drive is bad. DVD/CD drives are fairly inexpensive these days and would probably be best to replace it.
