Hi there.
There are 2 ways you can eject the DVD tray,
1st, double click on computer, right click on the DVD icon and select "eject" from the sub menu.
2nd, find a paperclip and straighten it, have a close look at the DVD near the eject button, you will find a small hole, poke the paperclip in and manually eject the tray.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Sometimes the hook that retains the tray will not release unless the tray is pushed inward slightly while trying to eject - poor design.

My cd is stuck and the eject button won't eject it. Is there any way I can get it out?


There are two ways to open the CD drive door ifthe 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 drivetray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive traypops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CDdisc.
If you continue having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD drivemay be faulty and needs replacing.

I put pictures in the cd but now it won't eject. It dot stuck inside. I could not eject even if I clicl computer then click eject, it won't eject


Power off the notebook, remove power cable and battery. Then try inserting a paper clip into the small hold in the CD drive to force eject the tray. Make sure you have powered off device and removed battery before you attempt.

I inserted a cd in to the Studio One 1909 and now it won't come out. When I shut down the computer and re start, the eject light comes on the front of the screen and you can hear the disc turning but...


Hi,

Try to check if you have a small hole on the optical drive (cd / dvd drive). If you see a small hole, use a paper clip to manually eject the disc. Reloading the BIOS default settings of your computer can also help.

Hope this can solve your concern.
