Hello,

wow,
what made it stuck?

Is some control light blinking? By this you will check if there is power in it.

All "reliable" trays should have little hole to poke with some wire. It's emergency button which doesn't require power to throw tray out.

Last option: Shame to damage such beautiful tray, try to pull it out with knife. From photos which I saw there must be a bit space to do it.

Cheers,
Mike
Leave rate if I helped you, thanks!

    Sure, then just throw it out of the window. If this **** doesn't have hole to poke it then you have to use force.

Dvd is stuck in drive of gateway all in one


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.

Disc stuck in dvd drive


If you cannot eject a DVD or CD from the drive, you will find a small hole in the drive cover - Take a paper clip and straighten it, then poke the clip through the hole, then gently but firmly push, and the tray will open.

A disk appears to be stuck in the disc drive. It will not eject.


You should see a small hole next to the eject button on your drive. Take a paperclip and push it into that hole. It will force the drive to eject.

DVD disc stuck?Press Eject, door won't open. disc spins up loads, then flashes fail


Find a paper clip. Unbend the outside piece of wire so you have a 1 inch or so pice sticking out.

On the front of the DVD, look for a hole about the size of the paper clip. Stick the long piece you bent out into the hole and push slowly but firmly until the tray just barely pops out. Slowly pull the tray the rest of the way out and remove the disc.

I've seen this caused by putting a second dvd/cd on top of one already in the tray, actually fairly common when you cant see the dvd drive tray from the top.

Cd is stuck in my dell studio 1555 laptop?can you help? ram


Look closely at the bezel of the disk drive, you should see a small hole.

Straighten out a paper clip and push it, quite firmly into the hole. This is the failsafe release.

How do i get a stuck cd out of my dell laptop


There should be a tiny hole next to the eject button:
  • Straighten out a paper clip and push it into the little hole until you feel it "make contact"
  • Then, give it some "encouragement" (push it in farther) -- once you've pushed the paper clip in far enough, the CD drive should then manually eject itself
Hope that helps!

How do i eject a stuck cd from gateway one 710 series I have tried the eject button on the keyboard but will not give it up...


Have you tried the eject button from the tray? If all that you need is a tool to eject the tray without touching the tower, I suggest you to go to this link and download the Eject-CD freeware runtime file EjectCD.exe - approx 30kB. Alternative if your tray is locked and can not open with the above methods, you have to locate a small hole in the front panel of the tray and put into that hole something like a connector (for papers) or a strong wire in order to push the internal system to open.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Thanks and regards

Can't open the second cd rom drawer


Does the light flash when you press the button? If so, was there a disk in the drive previously? There is a small hole on the front of the unit. With power off, get a paper clip and open it up halfway. Push the open end into this hole and the drawer should pop open by about half an inch. This will be enough for you to gently pull the drive open and remove anything stuck inside. Ian.

I got a cd stuck in the cd/dvd drive for my gateway laptop- i dont know the model. tried to hit eject button and ejecting through computor and it will not open. what do i do?


All CDs & DVDs have a tiny hole on the drive tray.
Get a paper clip, straighten the paper clip and insert it into this hole and push the paper clip in gently, the tray will release and pop out, then you can remove your disc.
You can do this without the laptop being powered up or powered down.

My cd rom is stuck, when i click eject button it won't open.


There should be a small hole in the front, use a paper clip and push into the hole to eject tray mannualy. The cause of the tray not ejecting is that the belt from the motor that ejects the tray is worn, need to change it.cheers.
