Is possible theres damage in the mechanism of the drive or perhaps a belt has snapped. try another drive to confirm if the same problem occurs, change the drive. it may not be worth repairing

My cd door no longer opens on my dell dimension 2400. The light is off too.


Hi minic2,


Your CD-ROM must be defective.
Try to check the connection of the cables from and to your CD-ROM and motherboard as well as the power cable.
If it is still not working, I suggest you replace it with new.

Hope this helps you a lot.

Thank you for using FixYa!

CD-ROM not opening


The eject mechanism is driven by a seperate belt. You'r's is worn or broken, however, there is a small pinhole in the face of the player that you may stick a paperclip into and the tray will open.

DVD drive bay


yes you should be able to play CD on the DVD reader.
Dimension 2400 have drive slide mounted on the side of the hard drive, cd drive and floppy. they are different for each device. you need the 2 side mount for the dvd. in order to mount them in the Dell.
the drive is inserted from the inside of the box toward the front. The front panel will prevent the device from pop out.
yes, 3 party DVD, CD drive will be shorter and fater that what Dell porvide, but it will work, al long as the opening is accessable.
get the HP DVD driver.
