How do I fix my computer CD writer Drawer to make it open.I banged it with my knee when it was open,I pushed it closed and does not open any longer.Its the HP 583 Pavillian model,not new but works wel

Many times you will see a small hole next to drawer, try something thin lika a paperclip & give a gentle poke inside. Feel for a button type spring response.

A cd broke inside my dvd writer while using it, and now it wont eject

on the left side of the front pannel just under the drawer you will see a pinhole.turn your cd unit upside down and insert a straightened paperclip in the hole keeping it straight as possible,the drawer should open enough to allow you to grip it .
if no luck you will have to remove the case top and manually remove the disc..
hope this helps.....Len..

6mmy cd-rom /dvd burner while burning a cd the cd got stuck and i had to jopen the computer to get it out, but when i put it back there is a cord came loose with p4 on it and i don't know where it goes,...

When you press the OPEN/CLOSE button on the CD-device, does the drawer open/close, i.e., is it getting electrical power to the motor that moves the tray?

You say "won't burn" -- will it READ an existing CD disk?
If so, then spend $40 to buy a replacement CD/DVD reader/writer.

Look for a WHITE coloured rectangle near the CPU that will fit that 'P4' cable from the power-supply.

Or, look at the "back' of the CD-device.
There should be two cables: one for "data" and one for "power" that connect to the CD-device.

My CD writer will not open to insert the CD. What


Look for the small hole on the faceplate of the CD or DVD drive. This is the manual release. Straighten the paperclip and insert it into the manual release hole until resistance is felt.

Once the resistance is felt, keep pushing the paper clip until the drawer opens a little.

Remove the paper clip and gently pull out the drawer until the disc is accessible.

    Burner is detected but ...

    Hello preto,

    What you probably have is bad lens. This is the main reason why DVD/Cd drives stop reading discs. You will have to replace the lens and it will be all right.

    Hi abdu

    The problem is that at some stage you or someone else forced the cd open or closed, but not to worry, it's not broken. What happened is that the gear that pulls the tray in, mite have slipped a tooth or two. You'll have to open it up. Take the top cover off. It has four small screws holding it. When you take the cover off, the gear system should reveal itself. Now the gear that pulls the cd tray in and out must me ajusted. Before you open the dvd writer, make sure it is in it's utmost closed position. Very Important!. There should be a screw in the centre of this gear. Carefully unscrew completely. Now it depends on which direction the gear turns when it close the tray. Seeing that it doesn close completely, the gear turns anti clockwise to close. Lift the gear in a up sliding position and turn it one teeth clockwise, press the gear back, fasten the screw and test. If it still needs more adjustment, repeat the process with another teeth clockwise. Note if it worsen that it doesn't close, then you need to reverse the process and move the gear anticlockwise, but make sure to mark the teeth that it was originally on when you opened it.

    Hope this helps
