Hello, my otiplex Gx620 cd/dvd drive will not eject the cd it in. Is there any way of releasing it ? many thanks hannah x

Hi and welcome to fixya!

Just follow these few steps and it should fix the problem (but if the problem keeps on happening, it maybe time to change the ODD).
    • 1 Locate the optical drive that contains your stuck disk. You'll see a small hole on or immediately below the disk tray.
    • 2 Straighten the paper clip.
    • 3 Insert the straight end of the paper clip in the hole and push. You should feel it catch inside the latch mechanism.
    • 4 Pull the paper clip out gently. The disk tray will come with it.
    • 5 Remove the CD or DVD and close the tray.

Hi. Usually if this is the issue you can try this steps. 1. Make sure that you put the cable back on the way it was before. 2.When you turn the computer Go to Bios Set up F2 and check on the boot sequence if the DVD drive is detected . 3. Try to press the Eject button on the DVD while your still on the F2 option or BIOS. 4. If the DVD is not detected and won't eject on the BIOS and even if you re-seat again the cable it means that the DVD drive is already dead...

The ejection button does not work.

Take a paper clip unfold it and you can manually eject what you have in there by inserting it into the tiny hole by the eject button...I won't solve the problem but if your favorite cd/dvd is stuck...that will get it out.
