My dvd tray is not ejecting,i cannot insert a cd


CD Drive Tray problems
There are two ways to open the CD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

Check the front panel of the drive usually close to the eject button.
There shold be a small little hole.

Unwind a paper clip and stick it in the hole to open the tray.

Can't you just push an opened out paper clip in to the eject hole on the front of the tray cover. It should be just above the eject button.

My computer door wont open on my laptop


Look on the front of the tray where the eject button is There should be a small round hole, this is for ejecting a stuck disk. Just open out a paper clip and insert in to the hole and press until the tray opens.

My pc drive wont open Help!!!


Is the cd/dvd? Look carefully on the front, you'll see a tiny hole just below the Tray (usually beside or above the eject button), take a straightened paper clip or a long needle and push inside the hole while you press the eject button, push it inside until it ejects out.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

DVD disc stuck?Press Eject, door won't open. disc spins up loads, then flashes fail


Find a paper clip. Unbend the outside piece of wire so you have a 1 inch or so pice sticking out.

On the front of the DVD, look for a hole about the size of the paper clip. Stick the long piece you bent out into the hole and push slowly but firmly until the tray just barely pops out. Slowly pull the tray the rest of the way out and remove the disc.

I've seen this caused by putting a second dvd/cd on top of one already in the tray, actually fairly common when you cant see the dvd drive tray from the top.

DVD will not eject via front button. Is there


Hi mplyler

If you look at the front of the drive, near the open button, you should spot a hole about the size of pin. This is a manual release button. Now you need either a pin a paper clip to firmly push in to this hole and hopefully release the CD tray.

Hope this helps and good luck!

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.
