Power down the laptop and restart it. As soon as it restarts press the open button on the dvd drive and it will open. You may have to try a few times but it will work.

There should be a small hole beside your eject button on the dvd writer. Put a pin in that hole and push. The dvd will be ejected.

You can manually eject the DVD disc by inserting a paper clip (straighten it first) into a tiny hole just below the drive tray. Push the paper clip gently in the hole and the tray will pop out slightly, then grab the tray and pull it out so you can retreive the DVD disc.

Use a pin and insert it on the small hole u see on one end of the DVD drive. Once you insert the pin you will see the tray coming out a bit. Applying little preesure pull the tray out and you are good to go.

Thanks

Acer aspire dvd wont open with eject button


Whether you use your DVD drive to install software, make backups of your personal files or watch movies, having that drive onboard makes your computer more useful and more versatile.


While DVD drives function normally most of the time, sometimes a DVD will become stuck in the drive, and the tray will refuse to open.


Knowing what steps to take to resolve the situation allows you to start enjoying the advantages of the DVD drive again.


Log on to your computer and click the "Start" button. Choose "Shut down" from the menu and then choose "Restart." Wait for the computer to restart, then press the eject button repeatedly.


Remove the DVD if the drive pops out.

Since there is no hole skip this and go to cleaning the lens.
Shine a flashlight on the DVD tray and locate the small hole near the eject button.


This is the bypass hole and it allows you to eject a DVD when it becomes stuck.

Insert an unbent paper clip into the hole and push it in until you hear the DVD begin to spin. Push the paper clip in until the drive pops out.


Remove the DVD and insert another one.

Use the bypass hole again if the new DVD becomes stuck.


If the new DVD sticks as well, you need to clean the laser lens on the DVD drive.

Insert a laser lens cleaning DVD and close the tray.


Run the laser lens cleaning program at least three or four times to make sure the lens receives a thorough cleaning.


Restart your computer and insert a DVD to test the unit.

Dvd door won't open for Sanyo DVW 6000


If you are trying to eject a disc, look closely at the front bezel of the drive, there is a small hole near the eject button, push a paper clip into the hole (straightened paperclip) and the tray will be ejected.

If the DVD door is stuck and will not open through ejecting via the icon in My computer, or the eject button on the bezel will not work, you likely have a faulty drive that will need to be replaced

Dell xps m1330 dvd drive will not eject cd inside


Im a dell tech, and i hate those cdrom styles, but, that is what the consumer wants, so we make them. Try starting the machine, then press F2 to enter the BIOS. once in the bios, press the eject button. listen for any noises, (an attempt to eject). if you hear a sound, it means the drive should be capable of ejecting the disc, and perhaps the disc has not seated correctly. If the disc will not eject, you must contact Dell. This is from the DELL dcse site: " Optical Drive The XPS M1330 has a slot-loading optical drive instead of a conventional tray-loading module. There is no mechanical eject mechanism for the drive to eject stuck discs. This means you must replace the drive if a disc gets stuck in the drive. After replacing the drive, disassemble the old drive to remove the disc for the customer."

Stuck DVD tray


Turn off the computer and then use the paper clip to open the DVD tray.
If this doesn't work, then something is jaming and stopping the tray from opening. In this case, remove the DVD drive and dismantle the drive (ie. remove the metal cover to reveal the internal components and remove the CD ot DVD disc.
If nothing works the the DVD drive is faulty and needs to be replaced, these drives are not expensive.

Help ejecting dvd


I had the same problem and tried for ages (even tried forcing the door open thinking I could just tape it shut) without luck.
Then my very clever wonderful husband had a go (I know i'm crawling and yes my knees hurt).

Any way to the relevant bit. If you hold the eject button down and at the same time slide a knife or similar object round the edge of the door where the screw is near where it says photo/select you'll find that the door opens as this is an override mechanism.
