    After taking the top off I was able to remove the disk and was able to fidget with it to open and close--no luck--will only open and close with the help of the human hand and the sad thing I still can't switch to TV for surround

  • jshelto Nov 25, 2007

    This is work in progress-messed with it some more and now I can switch over to TV for surround-but the disk drawer still will only open with my help. Inside there are white plastic parts that seem to work the gears to open/close

Sounds like it's jammed it self up, if you got finger nails try pulling the front on the dvd drive as you push the open button, otherwise look for a little tool of some sort to wedge in the front of the dvd drive to give it alittle movement as you press the open button, it may need a bit, just be careful not to break it lol , if still no luck unscrew the sides and back if it has screws at the back , lift the top off , and push the dvd drive from in there , that will atleast get the disk out, and lets hope solve future problems ,

    yes thats right , the thing is now , it could be a belt motor slipping , or one of the teeth on the gears could be done in, how old is the system? is it still under warranty ? without having the device infront of me i cant tell u anymore to do , accept maybe work out by eye the problem, from the sound of it , it needs a new part, but stress less this problem is not exspensive to get fixed, atleast we got the disk out and your sound working :)

Acer aspire dvd wont open with eject button


Whether you use your DVD drive to install software, make backups of your personal files or watch movies, having that drive onboard makes your computer more useful and more versatile.


While DVD drives function normally most of the time, sometimes a DVD will become stuck in the drive, and the tray will refuse to open.


Knowing what steps to take to resolve the situation allows you to start enjoying the advantages of the DVD drive again.


Log on to your computer and click the "Start" button. Choose "Shut down" from the menu and then choose "Restart." Wait for the computer to restart, then press the eject button repeatedly.


Remove the DVD if the drive pops out.

Since there is no hole skip this and go to cleaning the lens.
Shine a flashlight on the DVD tray and locate the small hole near the eject button.


This is the bypass hole and it allows you to eject a DVD when it becomes stuck.

Insert an unbent paper clip into the hole and push it in until you hear the DVD begin to spin. Push the paper clip in until the drive pops out.


Remove the DVD and insert another one.

Use the bypass hole again if the new DVD becomes stuck.


If the new DVD sticks as well, you need to clean the laser lens on the DVD drive.

Insert a laser lens cleaning DVD and close the tray.


Run the laser lens cleaning program at least three or four times to make sure the lens receives a thorough cleaning.


Restart your computer and insert a DVD to test the unit.

CD DOOR WON'T OPEN


Just below the CD/DVD tray there is a tiny hole. Insert a straighten paper clip in this hole and gently push the paper clip until the CD/DVD tray pops out. You can now pull the tray out until it is in the fully opened position to remove the disc.
Try pushing the eject button to see if the tray closes, then push the eject button to see if the tray opens.
If this foes not work then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and it needs to be replaced.

Cd stuck in laptop and its open a little bit


Hi

Push the tray back to fully closed. Then straighten a paper clip and insert obe end of it into the small hole you will find on the tray cover of the CD/DVD drive. You will feel the paper clip hit a plate which, if you push it, will release the tray.

The drive tray has a mechanical press plate that releases a clip holding the tray in. As long as the CD is flat in the tray. The tray should open.

I hope this helps.

My sony dvp-sr200p, disc tray is not opening?


Hello

Try the mechanical release;

Look for a very tiny hole in front of the drive; use a paper clip poke through that hole, apply a little pressure and push. The tray should pop open.

there might be a panel that covers the tray, and you won't see the tiny hole. If that's the case, just use your fingernail to pry open the panel, which most likely will pull out (not off), and you'll then see the hole. Once you push the straightened out paper clip into the hole, the tray should come out enough for you to pull it out the rest of the way.

Sometimes the CD drive doesn't open because the case is misaligned. Try pressing on the center portion of the drive when it is attempting to open!

Dvd won't eject. It lights up flashing like wants to open. I tried to eject dvd every way possible ie., computer link, etc


All CD / DVD drives have a Eject Pin Hole. The only thing we need is a paper clip to use it


krishtam1_dh_8.jpg
All we have to do is bend it at the first curve 180 degrees (straitening it out). Then take the second curve and bend it 90 degrees. Now we need to locate the Eject Pin Hole.


krishtam1_dh_9.jpg
Laptop - Notebook CD / DVD drives:
The trays on laptops/notebooks are spring loaded, so all that is needed is to release the locking mechanism. You do not have to insert the paper clip as far as with a desktop CD / DVD drive, as you are not connecting to the gearing under the tray. Gently insert the paper clip into the Eject Pin Hole. Once you feel it make contact, gently push in and the tray will eject immediately. Once done, gently push the tray back inward until it locks back into place.



krishtam1_dh_10.jpg

Desktop CD / DVD drives:
Gently insert the modified paper clip into the Eject Pin Hole until you feel it make contact with the gear underneath the tray. Firmly pressing inward, you will notice the tray to start to move out. Press inward until you have enough room to get your finger under the tray and then pull it out the rest of the way. If you can only get a small portion of the tray out, you can use the other end of the paper clip to gently pry open the tray enough to get your finger under it. Once done, gently push back the tray to the closed position. It will close firmly when the system is powered up.

DVD stuck in tray of Panasonic RA60.


many dvd players have a small hole near the tray. if yours has this little hole just straighten out a small paper clip to form a straight piece of wire and insert the wire in the hole. That will open it up for you.

Open/close button for DVD does not work on my Sylvania DVD/CD/VCR player model DV220SL8


On most dvd players there is a little hole that is about he size of the end of a paper clip. A wheel is behind that hole, try using a paper clip or something similar in size and rotate the wheel, try both directions. If there is no hole under the tray just look under the tray.
