You must take the "lid" of the main unit itself, and remove any boards and/or circuitry that are blocking your access to the tray. usually there's not a lot in there coveing the tray.

Disonnect the unit from the mains before removing the lid, of course.

Panasonic BTT268 tray wont open


Dear Scott,

If there is a CD stuck inside a CD/DVD reader, you could try using a medium sized paper clip straightened up. Insert it in the small hole in the front of the DVD player bezel and push it till it opens the mechanism. Please, have a look at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fa_4CsS7MKw

The problem can also be caused if one of the rubber band that moves the DVD drive "door" has dried out, or even if the power supply in not properly connected to the drive.

Hope you may find this info hopeful!

Best regards,

Miguel Luiz Martins

How to get a dvd tray unstuck


There are two ways to open the CD/DVD 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/DVD 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/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

My dvd will not eject from my e drive


You can manually eject the disc by straightening a paper clip and insert it into a small hole just below the disc tray. Gently push the paper clip into this hole and the disc tray will unlock and pop out. You can now pull the disc tray until the tray is fully opened and this will allow you to remove the DVD disc.

Hello, my otiplex Gx620 cd/dvd drive will not eject the cd it in. Is there any way of releasing it ? many thanks hannah x


Hi and welcome to fixya!

Just follow these few steps and it should fix the problem (but if the problem keeps on happening, it maybe time to change the ODD).
    • 1 Locate the optical drive that contains your stuck disk. You'll see a small hole on or immediately below the disk tray.
    • 2 Straighten the paper clip.
    • 3 Insert the straight end of the paper clip in the hole and push. You should feel it catch inside the latch mechanism.
    • 4 Pull the paper clip out gently. The disk tray will come with it.
    • 5 Remove the CD or DVD and close the tray.

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/CD tray will not load


With the R800, you must slightly open the paper feed panel door, lift it vertically about an inch and then lay it open horizontally away from the printer. Without doing this, there is no way to insert the disc tray.

CD drine issue


To manually open the CD Drive, straighten a paper clip and insert it into a tiny hole in the front of your CD drive and push the paper clip gently into the drive and the tray should then pop open.
Open and close this several times, then insert a disc into the drive and see if it will read the disc.
If not the drive is dead and needs to be replaced.
