I CAN NOT OPEN MY DELL INSPIRON 15 CD TRAY


Almost all cd and dvd or bluray drives have a manual way of opening. Usually it is a small opening to the right of the button to open the drive. Make sure the system is OFF to try this. Just straighten a paper clip and insert it in the opening and give it a small push. The door should manually slide open.

Hp pavillion wont eject dvd


Turn system off and use a paper clip to manually open the drive door. Straighten a paper clip, then insert it in the small opening to the right of the eject button. This should manually open the door and you can remove any disks in the drive. Then reboot and see if it will open and close normally.

CD BROKE IN DRIVE - NOW DOOR WILL NOT OPEN


Seems like some of the particles from the broken CD have remained inside. For manually opening up the drive there is a small hole in which you can insert a straightened paper clip. The drive bay will budge a little and you can pull it out manually. Secondly maybe the belt driving the open/close system has gone weak. Try tapping ******* top of the drive right after pushing the eject button. After you have got it opened i suggest you remove the drive from the PC and do a detailed cleanup by completely dismantling the drive.

Disc rom wont open at all and the manual button isnt visible to open it


Most disk drives have a small hole that you can shove a bent paper clip into in order to manually open the drive, which could at least help you recover whatever disk you have in the drive, and may even fix the problem if the drive got jammed. Some computer cases cover up the front of your drive however, so you may need to open up the case to get at the drive.

I have a DVD in my SD 3990SU - it won't play and the door won't open using the remote or the button on the front of the unit. is there an alternate way to manually open the cd loader.


You will need to open the set and manually move the motor drive to manually shift the drive to release the Cd.
Now check the voltage to the drive and also check the power, the main board drive circuit, the motor .Check the control signals to the motor drive , if absent the processsor control is faulty.If present the drive IC is faulty

Cd drive opening and closing on its own


You never should have pried it open. Only use the manual eject pin-hole with a paperclip. Noe it seems the drive tray is damaged and will not close properly so it is constantly opening and closing trying to find home. The drive will need replaced.
