Hello Dear,

You can always eject the Drive bay, forcefully, if it is not eject by pressing eject button.
To do so, find the small hole just benethe the CD tray, get a needle like thing and insert it into the whole, you cd tray will come out, now you can get it out by holding it by hand.

Thanks

Can I open a jammedDUW1616/ARR DVD


Look on the front of the tray where the eject button is There should be a small round hole, this is for ejecting a stuck disk. Just open out a paper clip and insert in to the hole and press until the tray opens.

My dvd player is stuck on one dvd and wont let me eject, change disc, or even stop the current dvd. display reads "locked" whenever i press any buttons. can only turn on and off the device.


Hi, For some reason the disk will not play. You push the eject button over and over again, but the disk slot will not open. Here's one solution...
* 1 Turn off the DVD player. Wait a few minutes, turn the DVD player back on, and
then press the "eject" button. If this does not work, turn it off and unplug
the DVD player...while you keep pushing EJECT button plug the DVD and turn it on (your hand still on the eject..) is should come out..
* 2 ..if it does not eject , unplug the DVD player again, Remove the screws off DVD on the sides and take off the DVD casing.
* 3 Look for the DVD holder inside the DVD player. This device holds the DVD in
place while the DVD player reads the disk.
* 4 Push the stuck DVD disk toward the front of the DVD player until the DVD
ejects. Remember the DVD player is not on and some force ( gentle ! ) must be applied.
* 5 While it is open,plug it on and place a DVD disc just to see if mechanism works properly..
* 6 Replace the casing and the screws. Plug the player in and turn it on. Put
another DVD in to test whether the player is finally working ..
Hope this helps!..
Take care and please

E Machines T3302. DVD will not eject. In hitting the eject button, or right clicking on e-drive for DVD, and clicking on "eject", it sounds like it is trying to eject, but it won't eject....


On the dvd rom drive sound slike it catching on something on the inside stoppin git from ejecting you will have to use a flat head screw driver poke it from the top and very gently pry it open while pushing the eject button as soon as it ejects you can then remove any cds inside it and you can remove the dvd rom drive bezel and close it if it opens and closes freely while this dvd rom bezel is off then the piece of plastic you took off it is slightly made wrong you can get these bezels cheap or by finding an old rom drive and removing that one to replace with yours. any additional questions please use the comment box below Kronoguy

Cd drive wont eject


Try ejecting it through "My Computer". Right click on the drive and select "eject". If you can't locate the drive, then it's probably missing the driver.

Cd stuck no way to eject


Hoping it's running XP or later.

1) Start the computer in safe mode - Pressing F8 after the boot but before it tries to start windows.

2) Select "Start in safe mode"

3) when active (fingers crossed) Choose Start - All Programmes - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore and restore to a date prior to all your problems.

4) Win Vista is similar but the System restore is in a slightly different place, but not sure where exactly

DVD & CD use different wavelengths for the read head. I suspect that the blue laser is out of alignment or otherwise in need of repair.

PhotoCD is a format.

Sony DVD RW DRU-820A


Hi,
did you try to do the emergency eject ?
jewellers driver in drive pinhole.
use the eject method again, Computer powered Off. Open the drawer and push it back in firmly.
This is an eject button, make/break switch problem.
Also try ejecting the drive from my computer/Right click with mouse ( CD Drive ) Eject.
And ensure the 4 Pin Molex ( Red-Black-Black-Yellow ) is the right way round. Yellow usually faces to the outside of the casing.
