    Thanks for the reply
    yes, thats it, but it seems to have released itself somehow...
    it's actually my son's machine and he says that he just gave it a light tap,..(oh yeh!)........... so, lets hope it's just a one-off problem.
    I'll bear your solution in mind if it happens again, as I'm sure it probably will, I don't have great faith in the product, knowing how often my sons friends have needed to return theirs to the manufacturer for repair (one eight times!) 
    thanks again for your kind assistance though

Is it making the noise like it will open then getting stuck? If so, this can be tricky! It happens with me sometimes. Press the open button and as it goes to try and open push the disc tray in slightly and up and it should pop open, it does with me anyway.

I have satellite C50D-B-10q. How do I open the CD/DVD drive?


Removing discs
To remove the disc, follow the steps as detailed below:
Do not press the eject button while the computer is accessing the optical disc drive. Wait for the optical disc drive indicator to go out before you open the disc tray. Also, if the disc is spinning when you open the disc tray, wait for it to stop before you remove it.
1. To pop the disc tray partially open, press the eject button. Gently pull the disc tray out until it is fully opened. When the disc tray pops open slightly, wait a moment to make sure the disc has stopped spinning before pulling the disc tray fully open.
2. The disc extends slightly over the sides of the disc tray so you can grasp it. Gently lift out the disc.
3. Push the center of the disc tray to close it. Press gently until it locks into place.

How to remove disc when the disc tray will not open:
Pressing the eject button will not open the disc tray when the computer power is off. If the power is off, you can open the disc tray by inserting a slender object (about 20 mm) such as a traightened paper clip into the manual eject hole near the eject button.

Manual eject hole:
Turn off the power before you use the manual eject hole. If the disc is spinning when you open the disc tray, the disc could fly off the spindle and cause injury.

See page 4-8 of the user manual:

Use your knuckles to knock on top of cabinet just above disc tray door while at the same time pressing open button,99% of the time disc tray will open.The problem you have is caused by a worn out belt drive or the tray is out of alignment.The disc tray belts only cost $2,when tray is open you can see the minature belt that controls door to the right.Use twizzers to remove and replace.Belt size 1.9

RE: Disc Tray won't open ~ help needed


The disk drive is broken, and will need to be repaired, if you have a game stuck in there, take off the faceplate and straiten out a paper clip. Poke it into the small hone under the cd drive until it manually opens.

Tray won't open


It could be electrical or mechanical. Without checking there is no way to be sure. You can get the service manual for your model for 10.00 at the following link. That should get the problem taken care off.

Ejecting the disc


I had the same problem. In fact, the board connector inside the printer was not really fixed. I just pushed it and it works perfectly now. But you have to open it... It's easy to do
