    There is a disc in the DVD player in my 05 Odyssey. That disc has been playing fine for weeks. Today the battery was dead (left headlights on) and all is well except DVD won't play. Light is on to indicate there is a disc in the DVD player, but disc won't play and won't eject. Tried resetting radio with codes but no change. Help!

My battery went dead on my '07 Odyssey and the same thing happened to my DVD player.
I read this solution on another site and it worked for me. Pull the fuse for the radio and [important] leave it out for about 20-30 minutes or more before returning it to the slot. This should reset the player. I tried pulling it and left the fuse out for only about 10 minutes and it wasn't long enough. Tried again and left the fuse out for about 30 minutes and it worked fine.
I think I read a lot of other notes on this same problem with dealers telling people to bring the car in and the dealers telling them that they have to replace the players. Such a scam.
Side note: You'll probably need to input the security codes for the radio into the system first. Find the codes in the Service History book on page one under the pre-inspection notes --probably in the glove compartment along with the car manual.

Benq DE350/De325 dvd player has a cd stuck and no matter what we have tried can not release it to open up and retrieve the stuck cd

I think I can help you. Before you do anything turn your computer all the way off. All you need is a small paper clip. Open the paper clip up so its a straight peice of wire. Now look at the face of your DVD Rom you should see a pin hole opening about the size that paper clip will fit in to. Push the paper clip in to that hole. Push firmly and your tray should pop open enough for you to pull it out the rest of the way.Now take out the stuck CD and start your computer back up the drawer should pull back in if it doesnt give it a slight shove and it will. After that you should be able to use your player again.

I hope this helps you out if it does please give me a YES on the page you recieved this response on. Thank you.

Hi i have samsung SH-S203B dvd writer, some time when i click eject button, it will not open. its stucked. How to repair my samsung SH-S203B dvd writer

I have no clue for a solution at all, as to how to resolve this issue, yet I know that mine gets stuck sometimes as well. Yet.. if I restart the computer and try to open it immediately after it restarts, it will usually open then. I notice this happens [gets stuck/won't open] mostly when I have been online for a lengthy amount of time. If I open it right when the computer is started, I usually won't have an issue. I have had to restart it twice in a row, to get it to work sometimes. I am looking to resolve this issue as well. This is the only thing that has worked for me at all thus far..

D V D disc stuck in my computer

So you've pressed the eject button on the DVD Drive and tried it by clicking eject from the windows.
Ok here are the most common problems:
1. The CD was improperly placed and it got stuck in the tray. To solve this you can either open up your DVD rom or you can try this: There should be a very small hole on the tray from where you insert the disk, take a pin or something that goes in and try to shake it so that it settles and then try ejecting.
2. The motor which controls the movement is faulty, you need to change the motor very carefully not damaging any other item on the DVD rom.
Hope this helps.
Please feel free to ask me any further.

Disk storage medium stuck in DVD-Rom.

If there is a disc stuck in the drive, removing the drive from the case is not necessary. Just take a paperclip and stick it in the manual release hole in the front of the drive.

Acer Laptop DVD drive stuck in 'open' position

The solution turned out to be just pushing the DVD drawer in and popping it out a few dozen times. Probably not the best solution, but the DVD player works and it slides smoothly now.

No sound/audio , dvd rom driv stuck.

1. Downloading the latest drivers pretty much is always the first advice that will be given for computer problems. If device manage is reporting device drivers are not installed then there is your answer. I did have a quick search and can't find your particular computer.

2. Have you tried going into 'My Computer' right clicking the drive and selecting eject? Does the drive work at all, is there a disk in there?
