I had five of my favorite CD's in and could not get them back. I freaked! My son and I just removed the trays entirely to get back the CD's, which we did. Now my questions is can I put the trays back into the player and will they work again? The radio is working fine, but I miss playing my CD's.

No matter what type of laptop you own or how you use it, the CD-ROM or DVD drive is an important part of the unit. With the CD or DVD drive in place, you can play your favorite music or watch your favorite movies, so when that CD or DVD player stops working it is important to get it back in service as soon as possible.
1.Locate the bypass hole on the CD-ROM drive. There is a very small hole, generally located underneath the eject button, on every CD-ROM drive. Unbend a paper clip and insert it into the hole until the CD tray pops out. 2.Remove any CD that is in the tray and replace it with a CD laser lens cleaner. These laser lens cleaners are available at computer shops and electronics retailers. 3.Run the laser lens cleaning program, then try to play a CD again. If that CD fails to play, replace it with another CD and try again. 4.Shut the computer down and remove the AC power cord if cleaning the laser lens does not resolve the issue. Turn the laptop upside down and slide the battery release lever to the unlocked position. 5.Remove the battery and set it aside. Then locate the screws that hold the CD-ROM drive in place and remove those screws. Slide the CD-ROM drive out of the bay, then slide it back into the bay until it snaps securely into place. Replace the screws that hold the drive in place, turn the laptop back on and try to read the CD again. 6.Log on to your computer and right click on the "My Computer" icon. Select "Properties" from the menu and click on the "Hardware" tab. Click the "Device Manager" button and expand the CD-ROM section. Right click on the CD-ROM and choose "Update Driver" from the menu to download and install the latest device driver from the CD-ROM manufacturer.
I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya
I just had the same problem with the same model. Disc five was saying no disc and would not play any other discs. I opened the radio and found the the CD tray was missing a piece for disc five. You have to put the disc tray back into the holder to fix it. Make sure it locks in place and you should be able to get the rest to work.
1, the disc may be dirty 2. the mian reason for this your xbox drive
cannot read the disc , because the power of the lens is gone(not
1. keep your disc inside the drive
and switch off the console, again swith on try this 2 to 3 time 2.
keep the console in vertical position or little slanding position(180
dg) make sure it does not fall
3. its better to buy hatddisc and
load the game inside it , so that u lens life increased
I just fixed mine and the problem was one of the cartridge trays that holds cd's had come out and was sitting outside the cartridge and over the top of the assembly that "collects" the disc to play.
If you can easily remove the entire unit from it's mounting brackets, then I have a solution. It might sound tricky, but it's actually pretty easy.
Once you've removed the entire unit, place it on a table to work on. Remove the front plate (this is the part that has the hinged door on it to protect the cartridge and inside mechanisms) by carefully sliding a thin flat screw driver along the plastic edge where it connects to the metal box. There are several tabs that just have a friction fit holding it in place. Be gentle as to not break the top plate.
Once the front plate is removed, you'll find two very small black screws on each side of the metal box/case containing the cd player. (The top half of the case.) Once you've removed the four small screws, you can lift off the top of the metal case and expose the cartride and cd player. At this point, you'll probably see that 1 or 2 of the cartride trays has come out of the cartride and are sitting over the top of the cd player. Gently push the trays back inside the cartridge.
Once the trays are back inside, you can take the entire back over to the power card, plug it in and see if when you hit the eject button if the cartridge pops out. If it does, you're almost done.
Go ahead and slide the top half of the metal box/case onto the unit. Replace the 4 small black screws on the sides. Replace the front plate carefully. Remount the unit in it's original location. Plug it in and you're done.
