Probably a failed DVD Drive :(

You can use a paperclip or something similiar to push the "Emergency" slot on the drive which will let you get it open to get your disc out but i think the only solution here is to replace the drive. If its too awkward or expensive (which it might be , seeing as its a laptop , you can just buy an external usb DVD drive :)

If you found this solution helpful , please rate my solution below

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.

Cd drawer won`t eject


You don't give much information, but most CD drawers have a small hole into which you can push an unfolded paperclip to force a tray open. Hope this helps.

HP Z1 WORKSTATION WON'T EJECT CD


Make sure the computer is turned on then Take a Paper Clip (Gem Clip) and straighten it out then kneel in front of the desktop facing the cd drawer. Look closely at the drawer and you will see tiny hole where you will insert the paper clip (Gem Clip) and at the same time Press the Button on the cd drawer while applying pressure by pushing the paper clip (Gem Clip). The drawer will pop open. Don't worry about breaking something, that's why that tiny hole is there.

Eject dell e6420


Eject what a Cd or DvD? If you can't get it to eject by pressing the eject on the drawer, try opening My Computer, then right click on the CD/DvD drive and select Eject. If it still does not eject you will need to straighten out a paper clip, get on your knees and look for a tiny hole on the cd drawer. Stick the paper clip into that tiny hole and push the drawer open.

Cd rom drawer on dell laptop won't open


hello, have you tried going into "My Computer" then right clicking on cd drive and click "Eject"? if not, try that.
if you have then take a thin paper clip open up one side of it so its straight.
After you have paper clip straighten up look carefully around the cd rom's eject button and you will notice a tiny hole.
Take the paper clip and keeping it straight slowly and gently insert in the hole and soon you will feel little resistance push it a little bit more and that should eject your CD rom.
if it opens up leave the cd rom open and reboot your laptop once and see if your drive now work normally and ejects the way it should?

hope this helps, post back if you have issues.

Kind regards,

Cd stuck in drive.will not eject.


Hi ,
There might be a teeny hole beside or very near the cd tray (where the cd ejects from) You may have to open the little flap that hides the sliding drawer part.
Straighten out an ordinary paper clip, and push it firmly into the little hole.
The cd drawer should eject manually. You may have to pull it out carefully when it starts to eject.
Take out cd, and then close the drawer, and then try to eject it the normal way. Sometimes, all it needs it a little help.
I have a HP Pavilion a320n, and this happens to me about every 6 months or so.
Good luck,
Fred

HI,
Double check the Ribbon Cable Connector is installed Correctly ( 40-80 Strand IDE ) sometimes if these are not fitted squarely Or pushed in hard enough. Can cause a Problem.
Also try the emergency eject procedure on The Drive. Small jewellers screwdriver Or Needle, insert into the drives faceplate ( pinhole in drives faceplate drawer ) push to open dvd drawer. pull out drawer Gently. And push back in. This ocassionally works for a stcking Drawer/eject mechanism.
Finally try the drive without a disk in ( open/eject Or Close )
