Hi,

Try restarting the computer, and insert the paperclip while the LED light flashes in your CD drive when the computer restarts..

A CD got stuck in my Cambridge Soundworks 765i. How do I get it out?


There should be a small hole in the front of your CD player. Straighten out a paper clip, and poke it in that hole. That should eject the CD drawer.

HOW DO I OPEN THE CD DRIVE


Hello. The stuck cd drive door. Bin there before. Use a paper clip, bend out one of the arms of the paper clip. Look for a tinny sized pin hole on the cd drive door. Use the paper clip as a push key. Put the paper clip leg in to the hole, lightly push in and pull the cd drive door lightly toward you. Then you can take out the cd and push to closed the door. Then you can use the computer as before. But remember to keep the paper clip as your emergency key. Good Luck.

Dvd drive door stuck


In case you're not able to eject the disc using the eject button, you can try right clicking on the CD/DVD drive under 'My Computer' and clicking on eject. If that fails as well, you can try to eject the disc manually by pushing a straightened paper clip or a pin into the tiny hole on front of the CD/DVD drive. You should be able to eject it using the last method.

Cannot get disc to eject


There's a small hole on the front of the drive. This is to insert something like a straightend paper clip into. This is the way in which you can manually open the drive.

Try it, but do not force it open. When the drive is slightly open, you can pull it fully open by hand to remove the disk.

Regards,

Bob

How do i eject a stuck cd from gateway one 710 series I have tried the eject button on the keyboard but will not give it up...


Have you tried the eject button from the tray? If all that you need is a tool to eject the tray without touching the tower, I suggest you to go to this link and download the Eject-CD freeware runtime file EjectCD.exe - approx 30kB. Alternative if your tray is locked and can not open with the above methods, you have to locate a small hole in the front panel of the tray and put into that hole something like a connector (for papers) or a strong wire in order to push the internal system to open.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Thanks and regards

Stuck DVD tray


Turn off the computer and then use the paper clip to open the DVD tray.
If this doesn't work, then something is jaming and stopping the tray from opening. In this case, remove the DVD drive and dismantle the drive (ie. remove the metal cover to reveal the internal components and remove the CD ot DVD disc.
If nothing works the the DVD drive is faulty and needs to be replaced, these drives are not expensive.

Disc stuck


The problem seems to be with your Drive. Just try and remove it out from your machine and then open it up.

If it is still under warranty i suggest you take it to them for a new one, or you can aswell try the paper clip trick but now instead get a longer thin metal pin type of object that will get in more.

Then try and remove the CD out with a supporting Screwdriver incase you need to pull it out.

Phillips DVD+RW burner on Dell computer won't eject


You will find a small hole on the face of the drive. This is the manual eject mechanism. Insert any wire-like object (a properly sized size paper clip works real well) and push until the disk ejects.

Note: Many times the mechanism is recessed quite far behind the face plate, so make sure the object you use is long enough (again, paper clip).
