Disc tray for gateway 5404 will not open

1 Answer

Do you see a small little pin hole in the front of the tray? IF so, then take a paper clip, and open it up and get it as straight as you can. Push the paper clip straight into the hole and it should open the disc tray for you.
If there isn't a small pin hole in your unit, then this trick will not work.
Good luck.

Help LITE-ON DVDRWSHW-1635S door wont open on Gateway computer


There are two ways toopen the CD 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 drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drivetray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive traypops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CDdisc.
If you continue having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD driveis faulty and needs replacing.

MY id58 GATEWAY DVD PLAYER, i cant insert a disc because blocked by the mechanism eventhough there is no disc inside.


There is a small hole on the front of the drive. Use a paperclip or a safety pin in the hole to push open the disc try enough to pull it open the rest of the way with your hand. Insert the disc, press the button on the drive to close the bay. If the tray doesn't close gently push the tray back in. If no lights blink on the front of the drive, the drive may be unplugged or has gone bad.

Make sure your computer boots from the disc drive by going into the bios and assigning it as the first boot device. Then let it load and do a startup repair.

Shw-160p6s disc drive will not open


You can open manually using small metal stick (metal paper clip).
Turn off PC, poke small hole (under the tray) gently. Check the rubber ring (like fan belt that goes to electrical motor), it might too loose.

Disc Tray will not open


My Gateway model #AR-230 tray would not open after several years of use. Removed the black sheet metal cover from the player to access the tray mounting screws in the black plastic tray frame. By tightening or loosening the little screws on both sides of the front of the tray mechanism, I got the tray to slide out (open) reliably again. The problem is the very close tolerance of the internal tray mechanism with the front case opening causes a mechanical hangup or interference. chemicalladdie
