It cannot open or eject the drive

If there is something stuck in the drive and you need to get it out, there is a tiny little hole on the right side (beside the eject button). Just take a paper clip and stick it in there. You will hear a click and the drive will unlock and eject.

For operational use, does you computer see the drive in My Computer? I would open the case and take a look to ensure that the cables are all tightly plugged in.

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.

The door on my cd rom cant not open when i eject, i dont hear the motor but the light shine just at start up

Look on the front of your cd-rom, there should be a small hole somewhere just under the tray portion. Turn off your machine (to avoid possible short-circuit issues) and use a thin piece of wire (ie: a straightened paper clip) and insert it into this hole. Push it gently, you will be able to feel the unit unlocking itself and the tray will open slightly. Now you can use your fingers to pull the tray open. Be gentle when opening, you don't want to mess up the gearing.

CD Rom tray stuck

does the case a a faceplate infront of the cd rom drive(i.e. if there is a door that flops down when it opens)? if so you probably need to take off the computers faceplate and then you can get to the little hole.

If the drive door sticks after you have used the paper clip to open it, look under the tray at the drive teeth (if any). Apply a liberalm coating of general purpose grease to the rwo inches of teeth at the end of the drive tray nearest you and close the drive door again. Open and close a few times to see if the door is now free. This worked for me on my Dell Inspiron 3100. Try it.

The cd-rom door not open

You have encountered a problem often seeen in LG models. It could have spontaneously generated or as a sideeffect of recent servicing. It is difficult to correct. so an alternative way is use a pin to force open the door.
On the front panel there will be a small mm hole through which insert a straightened paper slip to force eject the door. once door is out a little. pull it or use button to fully take out the tray.

For future, always keep a cd rom inside. that will probably let you eject the tray automatically. Problem occurs usually only withthe empty tray. good luck
