Where is the bypass hole on my CD drive?


Hi.

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.

I am being told to stick a paper clip in the hole in front of the tray but there is no hole. I can't find the hole. Where else can I stick soomething in?


Generally there is a small hole under the tray. (The tray is where the disk sits in)

You may have a eMachines desktop computer, where there is an outer door which flips down, and the tray slides out.
Ease the outer door down, and see if the optical drive unit (CD/DVD drive) has a small hole under the tray.

If not then unplug the computer from power, observe Anti-Static Precautions, and open the computer case. Remove the Front Panel. (Plastic front of computer. Now remove the optical drive, and open it up.

I need the Model Number of your eMachines to be more detailed.

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.


Hi,
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 get my cd drawer to open i push the button and it wont open try pushing button and pry at the same time and nothing happens have emachine T3508


with your computer power turned off, use a straight mini-kabob pin (or sturdy paper clip) to manually let out the DVD drive tray. There is a little hole under the drive tray door that accepts this kind of tool device. Another option is to massage the door while trying to eject the DVD drive tray. This method requires your computer to be turned on and by selecting the proper drive (E:) from the My Computer in Start Menu, you then "Eject" and can push in on the door and on the corners, enabling the DVD drive tray to open.

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!


Hi,
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.
