It seams it looses connection with Motherboard. Check manual there you may find how it's connected. Try to reconnect power and data cables or just pop it out and push it back again.
Hope it will solve your issue!

HP Z1 WORKSTATION WON'T EJECT CD


Make sure the computer is turned on then Take a Paper Clip (Gem Clip) and straighten it out then kneel in front of the desktop facing the cd drawer. Look closely at the drawer and you will see tiny hole where you will insert the paper clip (Gem Clip) and at the same time Press the Button on the cd drawer while applying pressure by pushing the paper clip (Gem Clip). The drawer will pop open. Don't worry about breaking something, that's why that tiny hole is there.

CD DOOR WON'T OPEN


Just below the CD/DVD tray there is a tiny hole. Insert a straighten paper clip in this hole and gently push the paper clip until the CD/DVD tray pops out. You can now pull the tray out until it is in the fully opened position to remove the disc.
Try pushing the eject button to see if the tray closes, then push the eject button to see if the tray opens.
If this foes not work then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and it needs to be replaced.

My sony dvp-sr200p, disc tray is not opening?


Hello

Try the mechanical release;

Look for a very tiny hole in front of the drive; use a paper clip poke through that hole, apply a little pressure and push. The tray should pop open.

there might be a panel that covers the tray, and you won't see the tiny hole. If that's the case, just use your fingernail to pry open the panel, which most likely will pull out (not off), and you'll then see the hole. Once you push the straightened out paper clip into the hole, the tray should come out enough for you to pull it out the rest of the way.

Sometimes the CD drive doesn't open because the case is misaligned. Try pressing on the center portion of the drive when it is attempting to open!

Inserted a DVD wrong way around (silver side facing towards us) now we can not ejecetd or play it.


Here are some options from best to worst and I recommend that you turn off the computer beforehand

Use a straightened paperclip and insert an end into the auto eject hole. (A little pinhole on the front of most disk drives)
Use a knife or flathead to pry the disk tray open.
If it doesn't have a tray you could use tweezers to pinch it out of there

I have pryed open disk trays before without issue

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.

Cd tray will not open


This might not be the solution you're looking for, but aside from the obvious, "Then get a new CD player," :) if you have something in there that you need to get out, every computer CD player has a very tiny hole somewhere on the front. If you straighten out a paper clip you should be able to manually open the CD tray by sticking the paper clip in that tiny hole and giving it a little "push" until the tray pops out enough to where you can just pull it the rest of the way out with your hand and salvage the CD.

Either way, good luck!

:)

My little sister was playing with the burner and then it just stuck! it wont come out and wont go in! i was wondering if u can send me a picture of the inside where the cd in put in! thank u soooo much!!!


Observe under the tray. (The tray comes out for the disk)
There is a SMALL hole. Just big enough for a paper clip to fit into it.

Take a paper clip, straighten it out, leave the last U-shape for a handle to hang onto.

Gently push the paper clip into the hole. Your tray will open. This is a manual override.
