The display flashes "closed" and I can't open the cd drawer when pressing the open/close button. Is there a reset please ?


Try removing power from the unit, let it set two minutes without power and power it up again. See if the problem continues.
Make sure the cd drawer is complete closed and flush with the front panel. If not, something could be stuck inside.
Turn off power and remove cord from wall for next step:
There is a small hole generally on the flat face of the cd drawer through which a bent straight paper clip can be pushed gently until you hit a mechanical stop. Pushing slightly harder at this point should cause the cd drawer to move open mechanically. Gently pull the cd drawer open until you can remove any CD still inside.
Gently push the drawer closed again and restore power to the unit and see if the problem returns.
Would be nice to have manufacturer and model number of the CD player.

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.

Why does my cd tray keep opening in my laptop. its apresario cq62-421nr


The sensor inside the cd writer does not recognize the closing of the tray. Hence it keeps opening all the time. To stop it from opening hold the tray pressed when it closes for some time. The tray may stop opening. Sometimes it works. Else you have to repair or replace the CD writer.

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


Hello,

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.

Either you have a computer-virus that is sending "commands" to the optical drive to open/close, or you need to spend about $30 to buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer.

My CD drawer will not open or close


I had a mini system with the same problem, out of guarantee so was either fix it myself or bin it.
I opened the unit and removed the whole cd drawer assembly from it's housing. I then, not really recommended, plugged it back in and by pressing the open/close a few times the drawer finally opened. Put it all back together and it now works fine. I think what had happened is that I use the cd player once every couple of months and combined with the lack of use is the fact that there are several smokers in the living room and basically it got jammed by a build up of nictotine or whatever.

Internal CD ROM will Not Open


Unless you can do electronic repair yourself and have the schematics for the drive it will be far cheaper and easier for you to simply replace it. Any DVD drive for computers will fit in there. I would buy a new one rather than used so you make sure and get the software with it. Replacing the drive is a 30 minute job at most.
