SOURCE: cd tray will not stay closed

It could be something as simple as dust stuck in the drive mechanism. Try blowing out all the dust with compressd air first.
If this Doesnt work the drive has to be replaced!!!!!

Cd stuck in laptop and its open a little bit


Hi

Push the tray back to fully closed. Then straighten a paper clip and insert obe end of it into the small hole you will find on the tray cover of the CD/DVD drive. You will feel the paper clip hit a plate which, if you push it, will release the tray.

The drive tray has a mechanical press plate that releases a clip holding the tray in. As long as the CD is flat in the tray. The tray should open.

I hope this helps.

CD will not eject on my Dell Dimension 4600


Removing a disc with the computer off

To remove a disc with the computer turned off:

1 Insert a slender object, such as a straightened paper clip, into

the manual eject hole.

The disc tray slides partially out of the drive (about 1 inch).

Never use a pencil to press the manual eject button. Pencil lead can

break off inside the computer and damage it.

2 Pull the tray out until it is fully open, remove the disc, and

place it in its protective cover.

3 Gently press the tray in to close it.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

My Lite-ON Combo SOHC-4836V DVD/CD-RW Drive will not open, is there any way to fix this? Expected Action: CD Tray opens What Happens: The sound of it trying to open, then the sound of it closing....


It sounds like a mechanical failure of the drive tray.
Use a un-bent paper clip and stick it in the tiny hole near the tray of the drive to attempt to prod the tray out of the drive.

Most likely there is something (a CD probably) stuck in the drive.

It may take a good deal of jiggling and bumping of the drive to get whatever is blocking it to come free. Be patient but firm.

Ilo DVDR05 Vibration and loud humming noise


i experienced that problem before.one cause is the cd itself.there cd's that are too thick so the motor has hard time rotating that makes vibrating sound.the other ,don't put something over your unit.the cover is touching the holder of the cd and makes a sound.just do the necessary things to be done like don't put something on top your unit.if not, then a manual analysis of the tech is the last option.

Cd tray stays open


There could be damage to the tray contact switches
(these tell to the control unit the position of the tray - open/closed), so that the control unit can start/stop and reverse the direction of the tray ejector motor.

These contacts are located somewhere underneath the tray (usually near the front unit cover), and since you mentioned that the tray was bumped while it was open, it is possible they were damaged. Also, the behaviour of the tray suggests that the control unit can no longer tell whether the tray is open or closed so it operates the tray motor in a wrong manner, which, again, points to these same contacts as the possible cause.

Repairing the contacts may be a somewhat delicate procedure, first you need to locate them (it may require partial disassemby of the tray mechanism), if they are bent a pair of tweezers might do the job, if there's hard damage, it's probably better to replace them (scrapped CD ROM units or a dead CD unit might be a good source, they just need to be of the same dimensions).

There may also be other causes for this malfunction, i just mentioned the first thing that i would check.

Hope this helps somehow.

It sounds that there is a possible hardware failure concerning CD/DVD guide cover. We can try this to resolved that issue:

1. Turn off the printer.
2. Close & open the CD/DVD guide cover for three times and make sure that the CD/DVD tray is not inserted.
3. Close CD/DVD guide, Turn the printer on. If printer is ready, press the maintenance button.
4. Try printing again.

If the above step wont resolved that issue your printer may need to send to a nearest Epson Authorized Service Center.

Cd tray error Canon Pixma MP810


Sorry a little late only just read your problem.
The location is not the bottom tray feeder but the disk tray. In settings change your media type to "Printable Disk" the paper scource should automatically change to "Disk Tray" and hopefully every thing will work OK.

Denon CD door jammed


If you are comfortable taking the cover off, you can try removing the cover and then try to help the tray out the same time you are hitting OPEN/Close.
IF you are not comfortable removing the cover then, you can try to take a credit card (Actually, if you have any of those JUNK credit cards that the CC companies send out as trial offers, those work the best, and who cares if you bend those, they get tossed anyway) and bend an edge at a 90 degree.. (about 1/8" of the edge) so it makes like a small ledge. try to fit it inbetween the top of the door, and then see if you can open it up. Some players have a seperate door, and some trays are attached to the door. You might be able to help it out or unjam the tray this way.
And in the Future, with any other CD/DVD Players, use your remote control or the open and close button to open and close the tray, and NEVER Push on the tray itself. If I had a dollar for every dvd player tray that Ive fixed because of this, I would be buying bill gates dinner. (not really, but you get my point)
Good luck.
