The rubber belt probably slipped off of the pulley inside of the machine on the open/close motor causing it to not open. You will have to open it up to put it back on.

Dv9815nr cd rom eject button

Yes there is. Open My computer and right click the CD ROM Drive icon and click Eject. This way you can eject your Optical Drive Tray.

Can you please advise me how to discharge a cd from my dell computer

I'm assuming that the CD won't eject using either the button or a software eject.

You should see a small pinhole on the front of the CD drive. With the machine powered off, insert something small enough to fit in this hole -- a straightened paper clip will usually work -- and the drive should release. You can manually slide it out and then remove the CD.

I inadvertently left a copyright CD in E drive. Now cannot open the CD tray to take out the CD. Dell computer. What to do?

In case the eject button on the tray don't help try to open "my computer", right click on the proper cd/dvd tray and choose eject. In case that didn't help you have to locate a small hole on the tray near the eject button. Use a paper clip and through this hole push the internal cogwheel to rotate and open the tray. Take care that it's not always due to the disk that the tray can't open; maybe it's a cd rom's mechanical problem and will lock again a cd or dvd disk.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

How do i eject a stuck cd from gateway one 710 series I have tried the eject button on the keyboard but will not give it up...

Have you tried the eject button from the tray? If all that you need is a tool to eject the tray without touching the tower, I suggest you to go to this link and download the Eject-CD freeware runtime file EjectCD.exe - approx 30kB. Alternative if your tray is locked and can not open with the above methods, you have to locate a small hole in the front panel of the tray and put into that hole something like a connector (for papers) or a strong wire in order to push the internal system to open.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Cant load cd into cd drive

Sounds like the tray is not comming out completly. Before you eject the tray you should notice a very small hole. take a paper clip and straighten it out and push in this hole. The tray will/should start to come out push the paperclip in as far as you can and check to see if this will allow the cd to stay on the tray.

Cd holder opening all the time

I don't know your specific model, but this problem is a common one. There is a loading belt that not only pulls the tray into the machine but also engages the cd onto the CD table with a clamping assembly. If the belt is starting to slip, it won't have enough grip to engage the clamper. This means that the load is unsuccessful and the unit will "eject" the CD. Have the loading belt replaced and all should be well.

Disk wont eject

tough luck buddy, this system is sh!t. i'm on my second and have now got a similar problem with the second system. I eventually took a pen knife to the first unit to get the dvd out and then managed to get a rented dvd stuck in the machine a week later.

Bose CD for Surround Sound System

First suggestion by Bose was to unplug the power cord for about 30 minutes and then plug it back and hit the Eject button...didn't work. Second suggestion was to unplug the power, tilt the unit up onto its left side and then "whack" the bottom of the left side a couple of good whacks. Worked fine and cassette would then eject.
