Question about Sony DRX-820U Burner

1 Answer

Sony DRX 820U won't eject.

Unit used to work well, but not used in several months. Unit shows power, but will not open up either by using the button on top or by selecting "eject" from my computer. Removed and added the unit back with little success. Just sits there with the green light slowly blinking. there should not be a disk in the unit. Any help appreciated.

Stick a paperclip in the small hole in the tray...sounds like the disk that's in it is causing disk in it...uh oh...I smell in toast.

Do I need a DC plug to operate the Sony DRX-820U burner? I don't seem to find it.

At the back side of your dvd recorder, near the USB port, is the connector for connecting the external power supply (12Volts, 3.0Amp) that is included in the box.

I have an hp using windlows vista and when I try to insert a cd the door on the dvd/cd writer won't open, either manually or when i try to burn a cd

This is the issue with your CD/DVD Drive. Better you change the hardware. Other wise take one pin and push in the hole which you can see in CD/DVD drive. That time the tray will open.

I an sorry to say but it appears ya drive has gone faulty :( I have seen this a number of times at the shop.. If ya have a stuck disk it can be gotten out by using a straightened paper clip and inserting it into the hole in the front of the drive, and by pushing it in the drive door will be opened.
