Re: wont eject

Hi, If there is a disc in the drive it's possible that it has become jammed and therefore will not allow the door to open. If you get a large paperclip and bend out one side you will find there is a little hole in the front of the drive. Insert the straightened end of the paperclip carefully into the hole until you feel resistance. Gently but firmly you will need to apply an amount of force and the door will pop open. Remove the disc and restart the computer, hopefully the drive will now respond as required.

If not then possibly the door mechanism band/spring has become too loose or broken. At least these days CD/DVD drive are not too expensive to replace.

Let me know how you go,

Wont eject unless I push the button many times

It sounds like the sliding tray is broken or off the track.

You could attempt to open it an replace the part or you could return it depending if its under warranty.

My cd rom tray will not eject and the light is

have you manually tried to eject the disc tray? There's a little hole on there somewhere, stick an unbent paperclip or safety pin in it and push until the tray starts to come out, then pull the tray out with your fingers.

Once you've done that, push the button to allow the tray to automatically retract.

DVD/CD will not open on my HP Pavllion s7000 what may cause this?

go to computer and try to right click on CD/DVD Rom and then select Eject there.. if this doesnt helps u then u would have to manually release the CD/DVD rom.. just below the tray there is a Small Hole .. use a Needle or any other device that may go in that hole.. try to press on eject button there.. and try to press using needle.. try doing so 3 - 4 times.. there is a latch that needs to be released to open the Tray..
this normally happens if the eject functionality of the tray is not functioning properly.. if ur computer is under warranty .. get the CD/DVD rom replaced.. let me know if this resolved ur issue regards, guru
