DC drawer won't open

I also have the problem of the CD tray/drawer not opening. It does not even make sound when you hit the eject button. It is stuck in the closed position even though the display changes to OPEN or CLOSE when I hit the button.

I tried prying it gently with a butter knife as previously suggested but that doesn't work either. It stays put and won't open.

SOURCE: cd drawer will not open. Crosley CR248 unit

Yes, there is i've done it before. You have to either open the back or the bottom it depends what cd player you have. then you will see the cartridge with the CD on it, take a thin long objects or something sticky and pull gently on the CD. It may take sometime but if you do it right the CD will com out with no scratch.

SOURCE: cd drawer wont open cr248

I have the Crosley CR247 which is the same except for style. I had same problem.
The CD drawer stuck and would not open. It made sounds like it was trying. I could not find any information on a solution, but from what I had been reading on other CD Drawer problems, it sounded to me like there had to be a manual emergency release somewhere. Could not see one anywhere on the unit, so I took a butter knife and inserted in the crack just below the tray. I slide the knife from left to right and just very gently ppressed around with it. When I had it over to the far left hand side moving it over just about an inch and a half to two inches, I just slid the knife from side to side and it opened. Sorry, I am not a mechanic or do not know how to fix things, so this is the best that I can do to explain where the emergency release is located. My little rubber belt drive looked good, so that wasnt the problem. I just opened and closed my drawere about five or six times before I felt that it was safe to stick CD in. I don't use it much, maybe that was the problem. The trick is getting the darn door open first so that you can see if it is the belt drive or not. Good Luck to anyone with the same problem.

How to open cd drawer


Oh my God, the answers I\'ve found on the net on how to get the CD drawer on a Crosley CR247 open are all nuts. Mine wouldn\'t open yesterday and I dismantled the whole damn thing to get the tray open, but that isn\'t necessary.

First of all my unit was making noise when I hit the eject button but the drawer wouldn\'t open. I knew there was no CD in the tray. Powering down and all the other foolish answers I found didn\'t work. There is no small round hole in the front to do a manual eject. Trying to pry the door open won\'t work and you\'ll just damage the unit. Here\'s what you need to do. And do it all GENTLY. There is no need to force anything!

Take a small, pointed steak knife out of your kitchen silverware drawer. This is all you\'ll need to get the drawer open. First let\'s identify where we\'re going to put that knife blade. The CD drawer says "CD RECORDER" and there are 3 lines on each side of that label. Where you\'re going to put that knife is below the 3 lines on the left, to the left area of those lines (see picture). This is the location of the drawer lock.

If you still hear noise when you push the eject simply push in the knife gently as you push the eject button. The drawer will open if you got the right spot.

If you hear no noise, or your unit is dead and you want the CD out, or if you\'re just afraid to stick the knife in the unit, unplug the unit. Gently push in on that spot until the drawer pops out a little bit. Now you can gently open the drawer by hand.

You can see the drive belt and pulleys (see pic). Mine was still intact but needs replaced. Here is also the info I got off of the back of the CD (see pic). Might not be able to find a replacement belt but at least you can get the thing open. Good luck.

I have a burned CD in the CD drawer and I can't retreive it, I can't find the button to open the door. Somewhere there is a button" OPEN DOOR" but I can't locate it.


There are two ways to open the CD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD disc.
If you continue having problem openning with the Eject button, then the CD drive may be faulty and needs replacing.

Drawer on cd drive won't open model is gateway digital media center gm5260


There are a couple of possibilities here, first it could just be stuck. If you hit the eject button and light flashes, there may be a stuck factor here. Look for the very small hole on the door by the eject button and push an opened paperclip in the hole, this will trigger the manual eject mechanism. With the tray opened feel the way the tray moves along its geared slide. If it seems too tight or it sticks there maybe something mechanical that has happened to it. Try to close it again and try the eject button and see if it will cycle. Also try to right click on the drive itself (Open "My Computer" to view the drives) and click on "Eject" and see if it triggers the command.

Can't open the second cd rom drawer


Does the light flash when you press the button? If so, was there a disk in the drive previously? There is a small hole on the front of the unit. With power off, get a paper clip and open it up halfway. Push the open end into this hole and the drawer should pop open by about half an inch. This will be enough for you to gently pull the drive open and remove anything stuck inside. Ian.

Ps2 cd tray does not open and the eject button light flashes


This is the tray getting stuck on the PS2 shell/casing. I can fix mine as it does the same thing but I tap it one quick time after I hit the eject button and it will usually open. Don't try to pry the tray open or this will make the problem worse.

DVD/CD door stuck on Bose 3 2 1


On the 321 systems turn off the power and unplug the power cord from the bass module. Wait 5 minutes and plug it back in. Then, simply hit the "stop/eject" button on the media center itself (do not turn it on first)..this should release the tray unless there is a mechanical failure inside the tray mechanism itself.

Thanks to Matthew O;Neil for the the tip,...Italo

On a Lifestyle system with a tray that won't open, try this: Turn off the power to the system and unplug the power cord to the back of the media center itself. Wait 5 minutes and plug it back in. Then, simply hit the "open/close" button on the media center itself (do not turn it on first)..this should release the tray unless there is a mechanical failure inside the tray mechanism itself.

If this does not work, then call Bose when you are home with the system at 800-367-4008.

DVD Eject tray stuck


I took a stake knife from the kitchen and pried open the tray door as I hit the eject button this got it to open, I then cycled eject and close, eject close a few times and this did the trick, I even played a DVD and that worked fine also. I had the problem with the tray not opening, and the display would read OPEN when I hit eject and I could hear it trying to open. So I wanted to make sure the tray wasn't just stuck or wedged before I took the system apart and looked for sripped out plastic gears or the belt being broken. GoodLuck rayruiz10@yahoo.com

Cd stuck


wow...that's a little tense..only way I know is with long needle nose(but be careful with mechanism) or talking apart the laptop(takes around 35 min and loads of patience) so you can slide it out from inside.
