There is only one cause of action here, either take it to a repair shop or try to fix it yourself. The fault is not anything that anyone on here could point to, due to the nature of the accident. You need to look inside and see what damage the impact did. It will be fairly obvious. If you decide to look inside rather than send it to be repaired, once you have seen the damaged parts, I am certain people on Fixya might be able to tell you where new ones can be got.

Lenovo Z570 Disc tray is stuck -outside of laptop


Open the try slightly, shut down the machine, tilt the machine to the side of the DVD/CD drive a gently shake to loosen the tray or whatever is causing the problem, Is the disk off the spindle? Is the dvd/cd broken? Can you insert something to clear whatever is obstructing it? Have you tried to eject using the software, Go to computer, right click DVD/CD rom drive, click on eject? Has there been any damage to that area, bent..etc? You may have to force it open or remove the drive and try to open it.

My Lite-ON Combo SOHC-4836V DVD/CD-RW Drive will not open, is there any way to fix this? Expected Action: CD Tray opens What Happens: The sound of it trying to open, then the sound of it closing....


It sounds like a mechanical failure of the drive tray.
Use a un-bent paper clip and stick it in the tiny hole near the tray of the drive to attempt to prod the tray out of the drive.

Most likely there is something (a CD probably) stuck in the drive.

It may take a good deal of jiggling and bumping of the drive to get whatever is blocking it to come free. Be patient but firm.

The gears have probably come out of sync, meaning the tray is riding on the limit switch. You need to remove the deck, dismantle and re-sync the drawer mech. Check the limit switch isnt bent, it's quite flimsy

My xbox 360 tray wont stay close how do i fix it


Do you mean the CD tray won't stay closed? If so check the simple things first. The button that you push to open and close the tray is actually a lever that pushes a much smaller button below it. Make sure that your eject button is not stuck down for some reason. Check your cd tray and the bay to make sure nothing got inside that is preventing the cd tray from closing all the way. I believe if something gets in the way the tray will automatically re-open. You can also take some compressed air and blow out the cd tray to remove any debris that may be blocking the tray from closing.
If none of the above simple steps work I believe it boils down to 2 things. 1. An object inside the case or tray that is preventing it from closing all the way or... 2. The eject button is stuck down.
If your comfortable with it you can take apart your xbox case and remove your CD/DVD player and ensure the button works properly. You can do a search on this site or youtube for instructions on how to take the case apart if needed. Once the case is apart the CD/DVD player is easily removed. You will then notice that the switch you press on the outside of the Xbox to open and close the CD/DVD tray is actually a lever that presses a much smaller switch directly on the front of the CD/DVD unit. You can then test your eject switch directly by pressing the button directly with a ball point pen or a pin. If the bay does not open and close properly at this point it may be necessary to replace the CD/DVD player and I do not know if it can be replaced or not. Hope this helps.

My right side does not play


Hi I have the CD-Mix 1 unit and my left hand disk tray is doing exactly as you describe, i have dismantled the whole thing and tested out and looked at as much as i can and everything seems okay. It's almost like something isn't quite lining up properly when the disk tray is closed because I have found that pulling down the tray door and using my thump to hit the right hand side of the tray itself eventually gets the disk spinning. The main issue is that when you hit the unit so hard the cd playing in the other tray skips as you would probably expect...But at least this information might at least let you spin up one and then fade/mix with the other afterwards.
If you do find out the exact issue, please email me at littleguydan@googlemail.com
Thanks!

Cd tray stays open


There could be damage to the tray contact switches
(these tell to the control unit the position of the tray - open/closed), so that the control unit can start/stop and reverse the direction of the tray ejector motor.

These contacts are located somewhere underneath the tray (usually near the front unit cover), and since you mentioned that the tray was bumped while it was open, it is possible they were damaged. Also, the behaviour of the tray suggests that the control unit can no longer tell whether the tray is open or closed so it operates the tray motor in a wrong manner, which, again, points to these same contacts as the possible cause.

Repairing the contacts may be a somewhat delicate procedure, first you need to locate them (it may require partial disassemby of the tray mechanism), if they are bent a pair of tweezers might do the job, if there's hard damage, it's probably better to replace them (scrapped CD ROM units or a dead CD unit might be a good source, they just need to be of the same dimensions).

There may also be other causes for this malfunction, i just mentioned the first thing that i would check.

Hope this helps somehow.

Tray won't open


What your husband is doing appears to be the right approach. Looks like the CD was not inserted properly and must've gone out of its seating and preveting the door from opening. Just pusing the CD back to position should take care of it.

CD tray opens and won't stay closed for burning


Sounds like an issue with the contact behind the button on the drive. How old is the drive? Replacements are cheap these days.
