More than likely, there is something wrong with the internal latching mechanism, either it has been broken, or is " clogged " with debris. Also make sure there is nothing else inside of the drive that may be interfering with the drive tray, or tray track.

Dvd won't eject. It lights up flashing like wants to open. I tried to eject dvd every way possible ie., computer link, etc


All CD / DVD drives have a Eject Pin Hole. The only thing we need is a paper clip to use it


krishtam1_dh_8.jpg
All we have to do is bend it at the first curve 180 degrees (straitening it out). Then take the second curve and bend it 90 degrees. Now we need to locate the Eject Pin Hole.


krishtam1_dh_9.jpg
Laptop - Notebook CD / DVD drives:
The trays on laptops/notebooks are spring loaded, so all that is needed is to release the locking mechanism. You do not have to insert the paper clip as far as with a desktop CD / DVD drive, as you are not connecting to the gearing under the tray. Gently insert the paper clip into the Eject Pin Hole. Once you feel it make contact, gently push in and the tray will eject immediately. Once done, gently push the tray back inward until it locks back into place.

Desktop CD / DVD drives:
Gently insert the modified paper clip into the Eject Pin Hole until you feel it make contact with the gear underneath the tray. Firmly pressing inward, you will notice the tray to start to move out. Press inward until you have enough room to get your finger under the tray and then pull it out the rest of the way. If you can only get a small portion of the tray out, you can use the other end of the paper clip to gently pry open the tray enough to get your finger under it. Once done, gently push back the tray to the closed position. It will close firmly when the system is powered up.

JVC Model DR-MV99 tray door keeps opening and closing when trying to insert a DVD disk


This problem was driving me crazy, until I found a solution.
This is what you need to do.
When the tray is open grab the flap door that goes up when the dvd goes in. Hold it down as you the DVD tray goes in. (Its spring loaded) This allows you to have direct access to the front of the tray even when the DVD goes all the way in. Hold the tray in with your finger by pushing in firmly on the far right corner of the DVD tray. The DVD tray will try and come out, continue to hold it in while pressing the eject button on the remote. If you are firmly pressing in on the right corner of the tray it should only take a few times of pressing eject when you see the Disk symbol on the screen and you will here the DVD start loading. When you know that it is starting to load release the front door flap. You can then use the DVD player as normal.
Unfortuntely you will need to do this each time a DVD is loaded.

Cd/dvd drive won't stay shut


I have the dv9000z. If I do NOT push the DVD drive tray all the way in until it CLICKS shut, then it OPENS again after 1-2 seconds. This is normal. I have found that most times when I close the DVD tray drive, I am not pushing it in far enough, because the top of the DVD tray is rubbing against the laptop's case. If I just press down VERY SLIGHTLY and push the DVD tray in, the tray will fully close and CLICK shut. This works for me. Good luck.

X box tray


There may be something jamming the gear inside the drive causing the motor to spring the tray back out.
Hope this helps

Combo drive opens and closes automatically


Arav you will have to open this unit up, sounds as thought the units slider has passed the spring sensor. with the unit open manually open the tray, there should be a spring lock release on the right with it upside down facing you. slide the tray all the way back in until you hear it click and lock. You may want to do this several times to make sure no plastic pieces have broken off. If you see or find a piece come out then achances are the spring lock mechanism has snapped, not uncommon on this drive. The screws are easily located on the bottom.
