There is a tiny pinhole on the CD/DVD drive, use a straighten paper clip and insert it into this pinhole and the tray will pop out.

Testimonial: "I've tried that it still doesn't open up. It seems to be caught somehow. It tries to open but it doesn't. So I have hit the tray button to make it stop from making the reading sound and then it stops. "

SOURCE: cd tray not ejectig

Take a Paper Clip (Gem Clip) and straighten it out. Look on the side of the CD Drawer and you will see a tiny hole. Insert the Paper Clip into the hole to force the drawer open. That's why the hole is there.

GoVideo DVD/VCR combo has a disc in it, and it plays, but I cannot ejecti it. I tried turn off machine and restart it but it still doesn't eject. It keeps reading the disc and plays the program.


there is a belt which is driven by a motor to open or close the tray. u place the disc on the try and the try loads the dvd/cd into the mechanism. the belt is loose & needs replacement. you have to open the cover & find the belt on the mechanism & replace with slightly shorter length of belt.

Player seems to have eaten the DVD. Will not release it so can be ejected


If it's a desktop, you can manually eject the disk. Turn off your computer and press a paper clip or other small object into the little hole on the front of the DVD drive. You need to apply a little force, but the tray should slide out far enough for you to remove the disk.

I have a Sony DVD/CD Rewritable drive that tries to eject but doesn't. It is model # DW-D22A. Is this a problem I might be able to fix or would I be better off getting a new drive?


It may have a jam, there is a small pin hole under the tray usually on the right side.. straighten out a paper click and press it in there with some force. This is the manual eject. See if it resumes normal operation after that.

Well we have a acer computer and the cd drive is stuck


If pressing the eject button does not eject the tray, look for the small pin hole on the cd drive and insert a paper clip to press that hole. It would manually eject your CD tray. Hope this helps.
