Hi, You need to open the machine or at least the top cover and manually extract the CD. Under the cover and on top of the loading tray is a retaining bar held by 2-4 screws. Removing these would allow you to lift the bar and remove the CD easily. In some models/version, there might be an electronic board partially covering the tray assembly. This type of problem happens when the CD is defective, was not loaded properly, or more than 1 is inside. In some cases, it is the loading mechanism that is at fault. Still in some other models/version there is an access/pin hole below the try at the faceplate where you need to insert a straightened metal paper clip to manually push out the tray. Of course the standard precautions apply, power down, remove from the mains. If you are not comfortable on do-it-yourself, maybe you should seek the services of a qualified professional. good luck and kind regards.

Dvd stuck in tv/dvd combo


There is sometimes a pin hole in the front of the device near the tray, you push something very slender into it and it opens the disc tray. If This doesnt have that feature, you may need to manually dissasemble to retrieve your disc.

DVD stuck in my Panasonic DMR-E30


Hi Rock.

I had the same problem like this on my machine. The best way to fix it is to turn the machine off completely and hold on the eject button then turn the power on. You want the first thing the player does is to eject the disk without trying to read it first.

I hope it works let me know if it doesn't and i'll try and recreate the problem on my player and see what i can do to get the disk out.

The last resort is to manually take the disk out but lets cross that bridge if my suggestion above doesn't work.

Thanks

smeags.

How to eject a disk from a slot drive, when you've tried everything else


This is about trying to eject a CD or DVD stuck in a slot drive.
Most computers have a drawer-based cd drive which rarely suffers from disk jams.

Some high end PCs (and nearly all Macs) have slot drives where you feed the disk into a slot, the disk is then pulled into the machine. This gives better structural strength to the case, looks neater etc etc...

The problem is that occasionally a disk will get stuck. and there’s no little release hole on the front to push a paperclip in. There is lots of advice on the internet for the Macs, the Wii, and Pioneer drives of varying types, and most of these advise OS tricks, or firmware commands, however this trick is for when all those methods have been tried, and the disk is still trapped in the machine.

The idea is to stop the disk spinning and fool the drive into thinking the CD is bad, and it will eject it. I was taught this trick by a retired engineer, and it works a treat.

Fold a piece of cardboard (I used the side of a Frosties box) lengthways twice, until it’s quite stiff... Carefully push it into the slot until it bumps up against the edge of the CD/DVD.

Start the machine, and push the cardboard firmly against the disk to prevent it spinning. Wait for the regurgitating noises, and remove the cardboard to allow the disk to be ejected.

Easy.

DVD stuck inside sony dav-sc5. Pressed the eject button and nothing happened. Did the usual turn it off and on again and it started to read the disk but then nothing happened. Tried to eject it and nothing...


Have you tried to unplug the unit for 1 or 2 minutes to see if it can reset the computer chip inside of the DVD player?
I have had great sucess with this trick.

I hope that this helps you out of this situation.

My cd is stuck in macbook and is not being read by my computer it only makes a funny sound when i reload it


A CD or DVD disc can become stuck in your Macintosh. It may not be appearing on your desktop or could be causing the computer to lock up if the computer cannot recognize it properly.
[edit] Solutions
  • First try the normal methods to remove the disc. Drag its icon to the Trash can in the Dock or select 'Eject' from the File menu.
  • If you are running a virtual machine, e.g. VMFusion, ensure that the CD is disconnected from the virtual machine. This will sometimes allow the CD to now show up in Mac OS X.
  • Shut down the computer and start up whilst holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared.
  • If you have Toast Titanium installed on your computer, choose EJECT DISC from the menubar.
  • Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder
  • Open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button.
  • Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism.
  • Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray.
  • Restart the computer while holding down Command-Option-O-F, to enter the Open Firmware prompt. Type "eject cd" without the quotes, and press return. The disk ought to eject. To start into OS X, type "mac-boot" without the quotes. Press return, and the computer will continue with the startup. (This will not work on an Intel Mac. There is no Open Firmware on Intel Macs. )
  • If your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button.

Smacking the machine is a good way to destroy the DVD lens. Get a CD/DVD lens cleaner and make sure there aren't any marks on the disk. Dirt & smudges cause about 75% of all CD/DVD player problems.

Curtis DVD player - Stuck in Load Mode so won't open - dvd inside - correctly seated - but may not be compatible. I just burned it & was testing it.) Have tried the paper clip in the tray release...


Do the following

Unplug power cord.
Wait two minutes and plug it back.
Keep repeatedly pressing the eject button while you start the unit, before it starts reading cd inside. Do this a couple of times.
If you cannot eject the disk in this way you will need to take unit apart.
Unit won't start until the disk is inside, as it tries to read the disk , disk is faulty and unit get stuck.

Cd stuck for good in bose 3-2-1 (first edition)


This is an Update to my above problem:
I've managed at last to pry open - with a huge scredriver - the very sturdy black metal clasp that holds down the cd-dvd driver onto the shaft. Now I could lift it up, see the small frontal hole that manually frees the disk tray. I stuck in a pin and at last it opened!!
But... Allas....
I could see that the "captivated" disk had very deep "skid" mark on its playable side, as if sometihng was carving into it. The same carving happened to a new disk I inserted, although it played and ejected normally - only with strange machnical noises. I think that some of the plastic cogwheels that turn or eject the disk got loose. I stuck them in and now it works fine, but I lost confidence in the machine - fearing it may stuck again or ruin my disks.
