Have EMachine tower door will not open to install DVD

You can use a paperclip to open it.
On the front of the DVD you'll see a little pinhole; unrwist a paperclip and push the leg of the paperclip into that hole; it will manually push open the DVD tray

Where is the bypass hole on my CD drive?


Small hole just under the tray itself. On an Emachine you may hold/pull the flap down and insert a strong paper clip to manually eject the tray.

My Lite-ON Combo SOHC-4836V DVD/CD-RW Drive will not open, is there any way to fix this? Expected Action: CD Tray opens What Happens: The sound of it trying to open, then the sound of it closing....

It sounds like a mechanical failure of the drive tray.
Use a un-bent paper clip and stick it in the tiny hole near the tray of the drive to attempt to prod the tray out of the drive.

Most likely there is something (a CD probably) stuck in the drive.

It may take a good deal of jiggling and bumping of the drive to get whatever is blocking it to come free. Be patient but firm.

Cd dvd door wont open.i push the button to put in cd and nothing happens.i do see a little cd on screen ,then it goes away.

On the front of most CD or DVD drives there is a small pin hole that you can use to open the drive if it gets stuck. Grab yourself a strong paper clip, straighten one end, insert the straight bit into the hole and push firmly once you feel some resistance.
This will partly open the drive tray to either allow you to remove a cd or insert a new cd or dvd.
Question, Is there a light lit on the front of the drive when you are:
a. trying to eject (instead of using the front button on the drive try using the "Right Click and then Eject" option when selecting the dvd drive in My Computer), If not the drive may be stuffed (broken) or perhaps the 4 pin power connection lead at the rear of the dvd drive has fallen out.
b. is the drive tray sticky when opening or closing? (get a new drive...very easy and very cheap to buy and replace)
Good luck,

Cant load cd into cd drive

Sounds like the tray is not comming out completly. Before you eject the tray you should notice a very small hole. take a paper clip and straighten it out and push in this hole. The tray will/should start to come out push the paperclip in as far as you can and check to see if this will allow the cd to stay on the tray.

/cd/DVD eject hole

Most CD/DVD drives have a tiny hole just below the tray. Straighten a paper clip in gently insert it into this hole and push it in. The tray will slide out slightly, just grab the tray and pull it out to the open position.

I have a Emachines t3522 W/ 4gb of ram, a 256mb ati X1300 pro but my disk drive won't open. It kills to get games in. Morse code is what it's like to press the button to get the drive to open. HELP!

Unfold a large paper clip and look for a small pinhole under the tray(the part that opens to put your cd in). Put the paper clip into the hole and push firmly. CD/DVD tray will open.

Also you can try going to my computer then right click on your cd/dvd rom icon. Then left click on eject.
