It is possible that a CD may have become stuck within the CD-ROM drive. If the CD-ROM drive has a small hole (that is not the head phone jack), using a paper clip, place the paper clip within the hole and attempt to manually eject the CD-ROM tray.

How to manually open eject Crosley CR248 CD drawer

Look at the front of the tray for a small pin hole. Open up a paperclip with pliers so that it is nice and straight. Insert it into the pin hole and push firmly. The tray will pop open enough to be able to pull the drawer manually.

Make sure the computer is turned on then Take a Paper Clip (Gem Clip) and straighten it out then kneel in front of the desktop facing the cd drawer. Look closely at the drawer and you will see tiny hole where you will insert the paper clip (Gem Clip) and at the same time Press the Button on the cd drawer while applying pressure by pushing the paper clip (Gem Clip). The drawer will pop open. Don't worry about breaking something, that's why that tiny hole is there.

The cd broken stay inside the cd room i dont know how to put it out please help

Hi, If you are talking about a computer cd rom then it is just just a matter of looking for the " PIN HOLE " located somewhere on the cd drawers front. Take a needle or straightened out paper clip and insert it into the pinhole, you should feel a little click and the drawer should pop out a little. Then you just pull out the drawer. If the broken cd is blocking the drawers movement severely it may be necessary to try and shake it into a position where it will open. Good luck, I hope this was of some help and thanks for choosing FixYa, Prodzilla

I put a disc from my printer into CD area and I can't get the drawer to pop open. I also attempted to eject it through the computer. HELP!

Look at the front of the CD somewhere on the front, there is a small hole. Straighten out a paper clip and insert into that small hole and push in gently. This should release the CD tray mechanically. Almost all of the computer installed CDs have this feature.

Kenwood RXD-A75 CD Drawer Stuck shut and ERROR message appears on display.

Look for a miniature little hole somewhere on the face of your unit,. Get a paperclip (smallish) straighten out one end and insert into holr. It might say reset, might not. You want to do a sort of heimlich manuever thrust (miniature style), insert the paperclip, thrust about a quarter of an inch, and the drawer should pop open. At least enough where you can "help it gently", don't yank its slide mechanism out, but verbally threatening sometimes helps............ Sometimes...............

My CD writer will not open to insert the CD. What


Look for the small hole on the faceplate of the CD or DVD drive. This is the manual release. Straighten the paperclip and insert it into the manual release hole until resistance is felt.

Once the resistance is felt, keep pushing the paper clip until the drawer opens a little.

Remove the paper clip and gently pull out the drawer until the disc is accessible.

Can't open CD insert

You don't say anything about what type you have, but many have a small hole somewhere around the drawer. If you straighten a paper clip, you can insert it in the hole and it will release the drawer and push it out. I hope this helps you.

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.
