CD driver stuck - dot.gif CD-ROM Tray not opening. Issue: CD-ROM Tray not opening.
Causes:
Locking device / software installed.
No power to computer or CD-ROM drive.
Bad eject button.
CD stuck within drive.
Incompatibility with IDE / ATAPI interface.
Solution: Locking device / software installed First, verify no locking software is being loaded which would allow the CD-ROM tray not to open. If you are unable to determine this, reboot the computer and as it is booting up, attempt to eject the tray.
No power to computer or CD-ROM drive If you have recently installed a new CD-ROM drive or you have moved the computer, it is possible that the power to the CD-ROM may have become loose or disconnected. Check the cable connections.
Bad eject button If you are running Microsoft Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows ME, or Windows XP, open My computer, right click on the CD-ROM drive and choose the option to eject. If this ejects your CD-ROM drive tray, it is likely that the button on the CD-ROM drive has become defective and it is recommended that the drive be replaced.
CD stuck within drive It is possible that a CD may have become stuck within the CD-ROM drive. If the CD-ROM drive has a small hole (that is not the head phone jack), using a paper clip, place the paper clip within the hole and attempt to manually eject the CD-ROM tray. If the CD-ROM drive is only partially able to be opened, attempt to pull the tray gently to see if it can be manually ejected. If it cannot be opened any further, it is likely that the gears within the CD-ROM drive have become bad, dislodged, or that a CD is positioned in the drive which does not allow it to open.
Incompatibility with IDE / ATAPI interface If you have an IBM compatible computer and recently installed the CD-ROM drive and are unable to open the drive, attempt to temporarily disconnect the IDE cable to verify that you not experiencing an issue with an incompatibility between the CD-ROM and motherboard. Once the IDE cable has been disconnected, power on the computer and see if the CD-ROM drive tray is now able to be opened. If the drive is able to be opened with the IDE / ATAPI cable disconnected, it is recommended you use the interface card supplied with the CD-ROM drive or the ATAPI interface on the sound card / motherboard.
Bad drive Unfortunately, if after following the above recommendations you are still unable to properly open the CD-ROM drive using the button on the front of the CD-ROM drive, it is likely defective and should be replaced.

Can't push button to open CD/DVD player - won't open. Help?


What to do if you get a CD or DVD stuck in your computers optical drive, and it won't eject. You can take several steps to troubleshoot stuck DVDs or CDs.

Computers are what they are, complex. Meaning, a stuck DVD could be one of several possible things. Sometimes it may be easy to fix. Sometimes, not so easy. The best thing to do is troubleshoot the problem.
Here is what you should not do:
- Stick a screwdriver, pocket knife, credit card, or any other object into the DVD drive and try to pry it open or pull the disc out. When stuff doesn't work right, I feel like tossing my computer across the room just as much as the next guy. But just don't do it. Troubleshoot first.

Method 1 - Try Ejecting from Within Windows Navigate on over to Start > Computer. Right-click on your CD/DVD drive choose eject from the drop down menu. Sometimes you can eject the stuck disc using Windows commands.

Method 2 - Software and Drivers The CD/DVD drive was working a week ago right? But all of a sudden it just stops. Chances are good, that you may have installed a program, application, update, driver, etc., that messed with the CD/DVD drive driver.
To troubleshoot this, try doing a system restore. A system restore will uninstall several files and changes to your computer that were made within a certain time frame. If you have just recently upgraded your operating system, this often times cause some device drivers incompatibilities.
Another thing that you can try, is uninstalling the driver for your CD/DVD drive, and reinstalling it. To do this, you will need to make sure that you have a backup of your driver. You should be able to download it from your CD/DVD drive manufacturer's website.

CD-ROM, DVD, or other disc tray not opening Locking device or software installed First, verify no locking software installed that prevents the tray from opening. If you are unsure, reboot the computer and as it is booting up, eject the tray. If the tray can eject as it is booting, but stops working after loading your operating system, something is being loaded that is preventing the drive tray from opening. Programs used to burn CDs are a common culprit.
Bad eject button If you are running Microsoft Windows, open My computer, right-click the disc drive icon and choose the option to eject. If this ejects your CD-ROM drive tray, the button on the disc drive is defective, and it is recommended that the drive be replaced.
No power to computer or disc drive If you have recently installed a new optical drive or you have moved the computer, the power cable to the CD-ROM may have become loose or disconnected. Reseat the power cable to make sure this is not the problem.
CD stuck within drive If you suspect that a CD may be stuck within the drive, the tray needs to be ejected manually. Look for the small manual eject hole that ( not the head phone jack) located on the front of the drive. Unwind a paper clip and place one end of the paper clip into the hole to eject the CD-ROM tray.

If CD-ROM tray opens part of the way, pull it gently to see if you can get it to open fully. If it cannot be opened any further, it is likely that the gears within the CD-ROM drive have become damaged or dislodged. But usually, a stuck CD is blocking the way.

Caution: If you are able to open the CD-ROM drive using a paper clip, we do not recommend continuing to do so. This is meant to be used as a temporary solution; the drive should be replaced.

What to do if CD or DVD stuck in drive? Note: This document is for disc drives with a disc in the drive that prevents the tray from opening. See our CD-ROM, DVD, or other disc tray not opening document, if the tray is not opening at all or doesn't seem to be getting power.
If the CD or DVD is not set into the disc tray correctly, it could be sticking up above the surface of the tray, causing it to get stuck with then tray tries to open. In this case, it may be possible gently shake the computer and move the CD or DVD into the correct place in the tray, allowing the drive to open. However, use caution when doing this, as you do not want to shake the computer too much, or you could damage other components.
If this is a desktop computer, you can prevent damage to the computer by opening the computer and removing the disc drive in order to shake or rotate the drive. When the drive is out of the computer, you can manually release the tray by inserting a paperclip into the manual eject hole.

cdrom.jpg
In the case of a laptop computer or a slot load disc drive, since the CD or DVD does not sit in a tray, it cannot be shaken in order to adjust the disc. If the disc is visible you may be able to move the disc a bit by hand, enough to allow the drive to eject the disc. Again, be careful in doing so, as you could damage the disc or drive in the process.
If you're still unable to get the disc out of the drive after following the above steps, it may be a damaged drive and should be replaced. If the disc in the drive is an important disc and you believe the drive is bad, the drive can be disassembled in order to remove the disc. In the case of a laptop or computer with a slot load disc drive, the computer needs to be serviced in order for the drive the be replaced and the disc to be removed.

3. plug the unit and turn on, if the disc tray do not move, use your finger to move the tray and see which gear is broken.

belts are available from this site. just have to measure the correct diameter of the belt in your unit

How do i get my stuck cd out of a factory nissan 6 disc changer


There is a tiny black button behind most face-plates on after-market stereos that you can press with the end of an opened-out paper clip, if the eject button not work and it will spit out the disc.

If this didn't do it but you see the CD edge, get a stiff plastic card - like a drivers license but a bit thinner. Put double-sided scotch tape on one side of the card, near the edge of one of the two narrow ends of the card. With the sticky side of the card facing down, stick it into the tray above the stuck CD. Press firmly onto CD and then pull out. If you can't pull it out, take a pair of long nose pliers and pull it out with it. Please note that this way you most likely will damage the disc but at least you will get it out.

Open the top cover of your CD using a screw driver, (usually a star screw driver),. Then, manually turn the driving gear of the CD tray to free the stucked tray and until to the point where you can take the disc from the tray. Be careful so the setting of the tray and the laser eye is not change. Then, close the close the cover and play. You can send your e-mail thru fix ya to let me know.
