When turning it on it won't open up


If your device will not open, then what you have to do is to reset the device. To reset the device, what you need to do is to hold the power on/off button for about 15 seconds, the device will restart, and then it will go back to the way it was before it started turning on without opening up. If that does not do the job, then it means, you have to connect your device to a computer, then you will back up your files and format the device and restore your files back onto the device. That should do the job for you.

Hope this information helped.

The Disk Tray will not open (TDK DED 440 DVD driver)


The lubrication inside your device may be insufficient or some mechanical problem has occurred inside preventing the device to open. Now, look at a very "small hole" near the Tray's front cover. If you see it, get a very small pin or even a needle to fit to that small hole. Now, press the "open" button in your device and then push that pin or needle in the hole at the same time to help the device to open.
