I would try cleaning the connectors on the face plate with an pencil eraser and on the unit itself with a very fine sand paper. And make sure you get rid of any dust after cleaning before putting the face plate back on. Please leave me a good feedback. Thanks
Try this; if the button on the front of the CD drive won't work, and Windows won't eject the CD, look for a tiny hole on the front of the CD drive. It should be somewhere near the eject button. Take a paper clip and unfold it; the end of the paperclip should just fit into the hole in the CD drive's faceplate. Press in gently and this should eject the CD. You may need to do this during a reboot of the computer (you could also try holding the eject button as the computer is rebooting).
I know it sound crazy, but turn the system on, press eject while using a PLASTIC knife to lift the CD in the player. If the system is stock also try disconnecting the radio fuse for about 10 minutes or so with the car off. Reconnect it to see if the radio resets. You'll know the power completely went out because you'll have to reset your stations. By Resetting, hopefully the issue will solve itself. In a few of the system issues I've seen, when the motor won't open the faceplate, or the CD player won't give the CD back. I usually remove the faceplate or disconnect the negative side of the battery for about ten minutes. Try this if the fuse removal doesn't work. Good look. Let me know how it goes. there are other things to try.
If the eject button on the faceplate doesn't work there are two other ways to open it.
1. Open My Computer, Right-Click the drive, then select Eject from the grey menu.
2. get a paperclip, straighten it, then insert it slowly and gently into the small hole in the DVD faceplate. when you feel the switch, press in with gentle preasure then back out. This should release the drive lock and it should pop open.
If neither of these two solutions works there may be a bent lock or a disk jammed in the drive. You will have to identify the set screw on the bottom of the laptop that holds the dvd then remove the screw and slide it out, then retry step two while giving the faceplate a bit of preasure.
After you hit the button...and it beeps....tap on the screen...where the color display
is....not too soft but not so hard that you crack it....then it should
open after a few times of tapping it and hitting the button. I found this at another forum, and it worked for me.
Look for a tiny, recessed Reset button on the front of the unit with the face removed. Press this button with a pen tip; it should spit out the CD and work correctly afterwards. This will also erase your station presets and audio settings.
