Hi,

Try draining the flea power first:

1. Remove the battery and ac adapter
2. Press and hold the power button for at least 10sec.
3. Put back the battery and ac adapter
4. Turn on the computer

Check if it will eject properly, after doing the steps. If not, there could be a mechanical problem on your dvd rom. Replacing your dvd rom will fix the problem.

Cheers.

Probably it is something mechanical with it if it not rejecting it but from that pin hole ...get it out by removing the screw in the back on its level...one or 2 depend on the model ..after this just open the tray and jiggle i gently and it come out from the plug ..and look to see if it has all stuff in place ..and if it can not be repaired just replace it ..
Also you can try a bootable disk to see if it is not a driver issue from a bug ..and try to boot from it into windows or so

Acer aspire 4720z DVD drive not working


Hey,

it could be a dirty lens. here's a video on the cleaning, its annoyingly loud but shows how to clean the lens with rubbing alcohol.

might want to turn the volume down in advance:

its for a ps2 but the drive is basically the same, and you would clean the lens in the same way.

if this doesn't solve the problem, you would probably have to disassemble the drive completely and get it working properly and put it back together, might want to get the help of a pro for that.

Last option is to replace the dvd drive completely, it will definitely solve the problem, You can buy such a drive from few places, few come to mind, for example, www.ebay.com, www.pchub.com and www.acerparts.com

Let me know how that goes,
Thanks,
Ekse

ashu, not familiar with the 4720z model and I couldnt find it on the manual downloads section of the website.

Have you tryed pressing F11 as this brings up the boot menu on my Aspire and allows you to select the device you wish to boot from.

Failing that i have found this site on google which will sell you a replacement manual.
