Near the eject button (on the same face as the eject button) there should be a pin hole. Use a straigtened paper clip to force the ejection of a stuck disk. It may also work even without a disk stuck. ( I just tried it on the drive of the laptop.)

SOURCE: Couldn't eject DVD from the slot-in drive

From memory its a bugger of a mission ,
Easier to take to a Service Technican unless you are able to do this type of repair,
It will require a lot of paiteince and skill to strip down and reassemble this just to get to the disk.

Give it to the PROS only if you want it to work again,

Sorry but thats the truth,

Hope this helps ,Please rate me thanks

How do I insert CD in computer? It doesn"t seem to have an open slot.


If there is no "Open" button for the drive then normally they are opened by pushing on the DVD/CD tray itself momentarily. It only needs a short positive push and the drive tray should slide out.

Cant open cdrom


I'm pretty sure that model of laptop doesn't have a CD-ROM, or any optical media drive, could be your problem.

If you have an external one connected, there should be a button on the external device, alternatively open "My Computer" and right click on the optical drive and select "Eject" to eject the tray.

Hope this helps.

CD stuck in Asus desktop optical drive


On the CDrom drive, there is a small hole near the button to open the drive. Insert the tip of a straightened paper clip into the hole and press gently. The drive should open to allow you to remove the disk that is stuck.

Disc Drive


If the eject button is not working, assuming this is a Windows based computer, click on start icon, your start menu will display, on right side under your user icon you should see Computer or My Computer, click on it.
You will now see all drives in your computer. Right click on your dvd(optical) drive. You should see an eject option.

If this dosen't work, close to the eject button on the drive is a tiny hole that will accept a paper clip, carefully push clip into hole until drive ejects.

My CD is stuck in my Toshiba Satellite A505D laptop slot, with no hole near the Eject button.


Look on the cover on the tray near the eject button. Should be a tiny hole.
Get something like a straightened out paperclip and insert it in to the hole and push firmly but carefuly. It's an emergency eject for a stuck tray.

Dvd is stuck in my ACER laptop how can I get it out


The Acer 5610 has an emergency eject hole to the right of the eject button on the right side of the computer. Find a paperclip and unfold it (or small allan wrench), push the end of the paper clip into the hole until you feel pressure. Press firmly and the optical disc tray should come slightly out of the machine. Grab and pull the tray out (gently). This should work even without power to the drive on any machine tray optical drive, if the tray mechanism is undamaged.

For a slot-loading optical drive, it's a bit trickier. You can try sliding another object into the slot and using it to pry or lift the stuck disc. The safest option is to use another optical disc or credit card sized item and double-sided sticky tape. Put a piece of the tape on the item and then remove the paper from the other side of the sticky tape. Slide the item into the drive with the sticky tape towards the stuck disc (down for most computers). Once far enough into the drive, lower your item and press the tape firmly onto the stuck disc. Lift up and try to pull the stuck disc up and out of the drive.

I hope this helps.

Loaded a cd to upgrade firmware, firmware would not load. eject button would not eject. read manual, says to push eject at the same time you plug in the electric cord,still would not eject. Any...


Please try in this way.

Disconnect power.
Connect power back, and keep REPEATEDLY pressing the eject button while you connect. If still no ject press power on button while you keep hitting the ehect button. You need to press eject on the unit, do not use the remote.

If that does not work, then the unit must be taken apart.

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).
