    What won't eject? A CD-ROM or the laptop from a port replicator? Please let me know and I'll try to help you. ~ Spoem

    Won't eject what, exactly? The DVD disk? It normally requires power to get the drive to open, but a screwdriver or small knife might be used to force the door open. The drive might be rendered unusable though, so think twice about doing this.

I assume you are talking about the cd/dvd drive. Almost all of these drives have a tiny little hole in the cover. This hold is just big enough for a straightend out paper clip.

Turn off and unplug the pc. For laptops remove the battery. Then push the paper clip gently into the little hole and the drive should open a little. Don't force it open. If it doesn't open easily, you probably have a cd/dvd inside that is hung up. Gently turn and/or shake the pc/laptop to see if you can free up the cd/dvd.

Try to push the emergency hole of the optical drive and check if the rubber is able to respond for push and eject. If not then have to call Dell technical support for such replacement of the device. Thank you.

LG v181 won't eject - it tries to load even when there is no disc and won't slide out the tray at all.


It's likely a belt that drives the tray has snapped or come off! If you take the top off you might well see it!

Power off the notebook, remove power cable and battery. Then try inserting a paper clip into the small hold in the CD drive to force eject the tray. Make sure you have powered off device and removed battery before you attempt.

I inserted a cd in to the Studio One 1909 and now it won't come out. When I shut down the computer and re start, the eject light comes on the front of the screen and you can hear the disc turning but...


Hi,

Try to check if you have a small hole on the optical drive (cd / dvd drive). If you see a small hole, use a paper clip to manually eject the disc. Reloading the BIOS default settings of your computer can also help.

Hope this can solve your concern.

My daughter put the blue ray DVD into the Toshiba 14DLV75 instead of the regular DVD and now it won't eject it. It just keeps spinning like it wants to eject, but won't. How can I get it out?


Hello
Just switch OFF the set by its front panel power control switch, and then switch it On and press the eject button without any delay. Sometimes the tray will eject, and try to close. If so switch OFF the front panel power switch, while it is out, and take away the blu-ray disc. the switch it On. All will be ok then.

Jvc kd lx111 deck wont eject cd


I just had this problem today and when I attempted to eject the CD it would give me an error message that stated (ERR 32). Apparently this means that there is something blocking the movement of the screen, a little manipulation should help the issue. Another variable could be the Eject lock feature, essentially a "child lock" for your disc. When this lock is activated it prevents the CD in the deck to be ejected. You can change this by holding down the blue source button and the eject button simultaneously for about 2 or 3 seconds. A message should appear saying "No Eject" and one that repeatedly flashes "Eject on" These two things seemed to help me alot when I had this issue. If those things don't work I would recommend calling JVC, much to my suprise they were actually really helpful. Their number is 1-800-252-5722.
