CD tray doesn't open

My MSI DRE8 (ms-8408e) cd tray does'nt open at all. I tried the emergency eject but still it doesn't open. What will I do? I tried to remove the side cover (grey colored plastic) but I can't remove it. Can you give me an instruction how to disassemble my unit because I want to check inside if something blocking the tray. Thanks.

Ok there is a small hole below the tray, use a small paper clip
wire to push in that whole, push and the tray should come out.

if that doesnt work take cd player out, push plastic clips on side
and top at front , front plate should come off .

where small whole was in front look behind plate you will see a small little metal arm push on that

should be able to clear cd player then .

My MSI GT660 Dvd will not open or eject


There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

How can I fix a CD Writer or a DVD rom when It's


Make sure that the CD/DVD has the power light on. Try and use the ermergency hole a few times to open and close the unit. This will sometimes get the unit back in sync with the gear mechanism. If that does not work, take the unit out of the tower and remove the case. Usually the ribbon and power cables are long enough to hook up the unit on the desk next to the tower. Inspect the mechanisn to see that the parts appear to be synced and then use emergency hole a couple of times. This has worked for me several times. I just did it last month on a friends computer. If this doesn't fix the problem, it's possible that the button you push is bad. Hope this will help you. UAW 974

The drawer that holds the cd's will not open. Where the cd screen is it changes to def.


Most DVD players come with an emergency eject option. First turn the player of for a while and then try ejecting again. If it still doesn't eject press and hold the eject button for 5-10 seconds. This will force the eject motor for about 5 seconds. If everything fails your Player's CD tray assembly (could be a faulty motor or the plastic support on which the tray slides is worn out). You will need to get the tray assembly replaced.

Let me know if you need more help.

Cd error message


Try to disconnect battery contacts and connect it back. Check also if there is an emergency opening device. In some model you have a pin hole underneath the cd tray. push a staple tip inside the hole, and this will release the cd.
If the tray still does not open, you may need to have a repairman opening your stereo at your local service point.
