You have encountered a problem often seeen in LG models. It could have spontaneously generated or as a sideeffect of recent servicing. It is difficult to correct. so an alternative way is use a pin to force open the door.
On the front panel there will be a small mm hole through which insert a straightened paper slip to force eject the door. once door is out a little. pull it or use button to fully take out the tray.

For future, always keep a cd rom inside. that will probably let you eject the tray automatically. Problem occurs usually only withthe empty tray. good luck

How am i going to eject the disc manually?

Hello there:
This sounds like to me that your cd rom device is going out on you when the disk gets stuck and refuses to come out what you can do is to get a paper clip and sraightren it out now look on the cd rom door and you will see a verry small hole if you press in on the door button and insert the paper clip in the hole when you see the light for the cd rom door turn on press in on the paper clip failrl hard and it will release the locking mechanism and the door will open for you.
you can try to clean the entire tray and the slides tht the tray runs on get some canned air and spray the area really well on both sides and see if this helps
If not that you may want to consider havaing the cd rom drive replaced ok
Hope this is very help ful for you
Best regards Michael

When I press the bottin on the dvd burner to open the door, the green light comes on and i would hear the door try to open but no open.

yes frn this is happen due to the jam in the DVD rom. when you press the eject button put one pin in the hole that is just below the eject button. so that you can eject your DVD. or just hit the cd ROM slowly.

Cd/dvd drive

You can see a hole located on the tray of the cd rom drive. Commonly seen beside the button to eject the cd out. Grab a small pin and push the hole and this should eject the tray. Close the tray again by pressing the button. Eject it using the button. If everything still failed, call up Dell to have the CD Rom Drive replaced.

Hi!This is not a big problem...All you have do is take a pin, needle or something and just insert it into the small hole near your cd-rom drive..try this repeatedly while pressing the eject button..If it doesn't work you will have to unscrew the two screws on the right of your keyboard..doing this will give you the access to the cd tray and you can remove the cd and put it back together..

If this happens with all your CDs and everytime, I would suggest you should replace your CD Rom Drive with a new one. After use of some years CD Rom Drives have such problems. Otherwise a software might locking your drive. you should find a tool which unlocks the drive and then press the eject button.
