Re: CD DVD player keeps ejecting tray

Don't know for sure but if the common reasons are that it opens when you move the laptop and when you get on the internet the power to the device may be changing when these actions occur. Moving it may cause an intermittant connection and getting on the internet usually draws more power from the power supply. If the batteries are ok the power supply voltage may be at the threshold at which these events make them fall to some value where the dvd burner thinks it's getting a message from the operating system to eject. Try it on a different computer and perform the same actions. If the problem stays with the burner it's the one with the problem, otherwise something in the laptop itself may be causing it.

Re: CD DVD player keeps ejecting tray

Solution #1 surely is the correct.

I've had the same problem and definitely is not a virus. Tho others are missing the fact that it occurs when the laptop is moved. What Falling Down says fits perfectly. Could be a moving connection, or so. Taking off the drive and cleaning the terminals could help.

Ooooops. Now I see this question is from a long time ago. However, it could help somebody.

My 1977098v-d6 will not eject

Possiblky the disc has moved even though on a spindle. When you say it will not eject is this using the software asking it to eject if so it will send the instruction to eject but when it finds a problem with the disc the tray will not open. So, get a pin or needle, in the front ogfthe drive will be a tiny hole behind which is the manual release. Stick the needle in the hole and push the manual release the tray should then unclick and you should be able to remove the disc.

use a unfolded paperclip and insert it into a small hole below the disc tray. This is the manual eject port. Stick it straight in and push, a little bit of pressure will be needed.

Phillips DVD+RW burner on Dell computer won't eject

You will find a small hole on the face of the drive. This is the manual eject mechanism. Insert any wire-like object (a properly sized size paper clip works real well) and push until the disk ejects.

Note: Many times the mechanism is recessed quite far behind the face plate, so make sure the object you use is long enough (again, paper clip).

Sony DVD RW DRU-820A

did you try to do the emergency eject ?
jewellers driver in drive pinhole.
use the eject method again, Computer powered Off. Open the drawer and push it back in firmly.
This is an eject button, make/break switch problem.
Also try ejecting the drive from my computer/Right click with mouse ( CD Drive ) Eject.
And ensure the 4 Pin Molex ( Red-Black-Black-Yellow ) is the right way round. Yellow usually faces to the outside of the casing.

Is this covered by a front console cover type or is the dvd, as it is with it's own eject button, as it may be touching the front eject button.
