You have to open up your printer covers to extract that jammed paper. However, if you haven't tried tinkering with anything electronic before you will have to seek technical assistance from a qualified expert, but if you're willing and determined to extract that piece of paper, i suggest first you unplug any power connection from your printer, then unscrew the visible screws of the cover which is nearest the jammed piece of paper. never turn any cylinder if it resists your effort, however, try to manually turn cylinders where that small piece of paper is wedged until it comes off. Try to pull down on that piece of paper using a hair puller or forcep.

I can not get the cd to eject. When hitting eject it acts as a pause or play button. This Valor cd player is installed in my SUV. Thank You


If you can power on the unit, and press the eject button still, then this how-to should work for most standard in-dash units. (There is also a tiny black button behind most face-plates on aftermarket stereos that you can press with the end of an opened-out paper clip, should your eject button not work.)

Steps
Method 1

  1. Take a blank/useless CD (such as AOL free trial CD's, you can get them in a plethora of amounts in Best Buy) and place it about 1 inch deep into the slot.
  2. Press the 'Eject' button and gently wiggle the CD around. If this doesn't work, repeat and try to get the blank CD below the the jammed CD, and gently pry the target CD upwards.
  3. Sometimes, unusual amounts of pressure may be on the unit, behind the dash itself. Have a professional or a friend that you trust remove the dash unit and try steps #2 and #3.

Method 2
  1. Get a 1 inch to 2 inch wide putty knife and wrap tape around it with the sticky side of the tape on the outside of the knife. Use a strong tape like Gorilla tape for best results. The knife is typically tappered so that if you wrap the tape tight enough it will not slide off the end
  2. Get a piece of paper and stick it to one side of the knife. Trim with scissors. You now have a thin sticky knife you can slide into the CD player opening.
  3. Insert knife into CD player with sticky side down trying to get it to go on top of the CD that is stuck. Press down gently to get the tape to stick to the CD.
  4. Gently lift up and pull the knife out. Hopefully the CD will come with it. You might try hitting the eject button if it doesn't work the first time...

Method 3
  1. With the heel of your hand, slam it into the front of the CD player.

Method 4
  1. This method worked only after I pressed the eject button which resulted in the CD not ejecting at all or only becoming visible a very little bit - too little to grab with fingers or pliers.
  2. Get a stiff plastic "card" - like a drivers license but a bit thinner. Put double-sided scotch tape on one side of the card, near the edge of one of the two narrow ends of the card.
  3. Get a thin-stemmed flat head screwdriver (short is better).
  4. With the sticky side of the card facing down, stick it into the **** ABOVE the stuck CD. You may have to use the screwdriver to ensure the card goes in above the CD and does not stick to the CD until after you get 1/2 to 3/4 inch of the card in above the CD.
  5. With the card still in there, insert the thin flat screwdriver ON TOP of the card and gently press down on the card. This causes the tape on the bottom side of the card to stick to the top side of the stuck CD.
  6. Remove the screwdriver and then slowly pull the card out. The CD should come with the card.

How do I eject a disc from a dell sdudio one


Removing a disc with the computer off

To remove a disc with the computer turned off:

1 Insert a slender object, such as a straightened paper clip, into

the manual eject hole.

The disc tray slides partially out of the drive (about 1 inch).

Never use a pencil to press the manual eject button. Pencil lead can

break off inside the computer and damage it.

2 Pull the tray out until it is fully open, remove the disc, and

place it in its protective cover.

3 Gently press the tray in to close it.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

My son just put 2 dvds in ps3 and now they are stuck?


Try to press the Eject Button for 20 seconds and i think that will do a force eject
the other way is the paper-clip! Straightend a large paper clip, then with some needle-nose pliers created a tiny L-shaped hooked (about 3/16 or 1/8 of an inch). Inserted the hook side of the clip into the disc slot along the edge. Carefully moved the clip around until I located the hole in the disc, then gently pulled the disc out. Piece of cake, took about 2 minutes!

Hi there,

Place the original on the glass.
1) Open the document cover and place your original face-down on the glass, in the upper left corner. Move your original about 1/10 inch away from the top and left edges so all of it will be copied. 2) Close the cover gently so you don't move the original . Caution : Never open the document beyond where it stops and do not place heavy objects on top of the CX4600. If you need to copy or scan a thick or large document, you can remove the document cover. Just open it and pull it straight up. If you need to press the document flat while you copy or scan it, do not press too hard and be careful not to move it. Caution : Do not use excessive force on the document cover, and do not twist it diagonally. You may damage the document cover. When you are done, replace the document cover by inserting the tabs back into the slots. Copying a document. 1) Load paper. 2) Press copy button until you see the desired number of copiesin the Copy window You can select up to 9 copies at a time. 3) Press the paper type button to select PLain Paper. The light indicates which type is selected. 4) Press the paper size button to select Letter. 5) If you want your copies automatically reduced or enlarged to fit the loaded paper size, press the Fit to Page button. 6) To make color copy, press the Start Color button To make black and white copy, press Start B&W button. The ON light flashes and after a moment the CX4600 starts printing. If you need to stop copying at any time, just press the Stop button. Do no pull out paper that is printing, it will eject automatically to the output tray. Hope this helps. Please rate my response. Thanks Have a good day.

The printer is feeding a blank sheet of paper between printed sheets. How do I rectify this?


This causes the printable area on the page to be that much less (10 3/4 or 10 1/2 on an 11 inch page). The software thinks the paper is 11 inches long and keeps track, down to the micro inch, where it is on the paper. When it reaches the 10 1/2 inches, your printer calls the page done and ejects it. However, the software thinks there is still another 1/2 inch to print (usually the footer area). Now when you insert a new sheet of paper, the software finishes printing the rest of the page (normally a blank footer) and form feeds to the next sheet. To correct what the software thinks the paper size is, you need to run the Preferences application and change the default settings. Select the Printer button. In the next window, select the 'Change Defaults....' button. Change both the Document size and the Paper size to a height of 10.875 and click OK. Try a new document to see if the paper size is correct. You may need to go back and change the height a few times until it is correct (the height changes in .125 increments). Usually either 10.875 (for 1/4 inch forced top margin printers) or 10.75 ( for 1/2 inch forced top margin printers) will work.

If the paper tears and a piece remains inside the machine, turn the machine off, open the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover) and remove it.
