This means that the track of the drive door became dried...you'll have to lean the drive and put some track gel on it with the help of a service engineer...

HOW DO I OPEN THE CD DRIVE


Hello. The stuck cd drive door. Bin there before. Use a paper clip, bend out one of the arms of the paper clip. Look for a tinny sized pin hole on the cd drive door. Use the paper clip as a push key. Put the paper clip leg in to the hole, lightly push in and pull the cd drive door lightly toward you. Then you can take out the cd and push to closed the door. Then you can use the computer as before. But remember to keep the paper clip as your emergency key. Good Luck.

Hp pavillion wont eject dvd


Turn system off and use a paper clip to manually open the drive door. Straighten a paper clip, then insert it in the small opening to the right of the eject button. This should manually open the door and you can remove any disks in the drive. Then reboot and see if it will open and close normally.

DVD stuck in my Yamaha DVD-c6761 DVD/CD player. How do I get it out so my player will open and work properly again.


Unbend a paper clip.Look very closely at the area around the CD/DVD drive door until you find a really small hole - it almost looks like an accident (probably just below the door). Insert the paper clip in the hole (don't be afraid). Push the paper clip gently to press the spring-loaded latch.Your CD/DVD tray should open right up. That's it. Deals Prices

We have a computer model T3092. The compact disc section wont pen and it has a cd stuck in there. How to open?


Hello,

Look closely at the front of the drive. There is a small hole, usually right under the slot door. Get a paper clip and unroll it. Push the paper clip straight through the hole. You should be able to feel it when it releases the catch on the drive door.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Cd Stuck


Look at the "door" or "flap" of the cd rom drive. You should see a small round hole. If you straighten out a paper clip and insert it in the hole, push in gently, that will open the door and eject the disk. Please rate this if it helped you.

The cd door is stuck - i cant open the door or close it, help? Tray does not open when switch is depressed. Green light burns steady.

First, you'll need a paperclip. Unfold it so there is 1 to 2 inches that is straight.

Now, look closely at your drive door. There should be a very small pinhole either above or below it.

Insert the paperclip. There is a very small gear that when rotated, will manually open the drive door.

Retract and reinsert the paper clip as many times as it takes to eject the drive enough so you can hold onto it.
Pull Out the CD or DVD Drive.

Now slowly pull the drive out until it is fully retracted. Remove your stuck CD or DVD, and slowly push the drive bay back until the door is closed.
