Which product u use? Each product has that option in order to solve such issues. Is it an old one? There are several places where the hole is. One is near the eject button (upper left, right, bottom right). Near the tray (below or above). Bottom left. Near the volume control. If there is a sticker or something it must have behind that. You can get it in a different way also. Remove the bolts using a screw driver. There are 2 plastic blocks (located left and right near to the front plastic panel.). Push in those small pieces in and pull the plastic fron shield slightly. Then use a flat screw driver to remove the two upper locks (where the plastic panel or shield connected to the metal cover - on the upper edge). Slightly push front and then bottom until you see the disk. Then use a soft hook or something to pull the dvd out. Then Push up until the upper locks fit together with the metal shield. Push the plastic cover in until the side locks are fit together with the metal cover.

DVD stuck in my Yamaha DVD-c6761 DVD/CD player. How do I get it out so my player will open and work properly again.


Unbend a paper clip.Look very closely at the area around the CD/DVD drive door until you find a really small hole - it almost looks like an accident (probably just below the door). Insert the paper clip in the hole (don't be afraid). Push the paper clip gently to press the spring-loaded latch.Your CD/DVD tray should open right up. That's it. Deals Prices

Acer aspire dvd wont open with eject button


Whether you use your DVD drive to install software, make backups of your personal files or watch movies, having that drive onboard makes your computer more useful and more versatile.


While DVD drives function normally most of the time, sometimes a DVD will become stuck in the drive, and the tray will refuse to open.


Knowing what steps to take to resolve the situation allows you to start enjoying the advantages of the DVD drive again.


Log on to your computer and click the "Start" button. Choose "Shut down" from the menu and then choose "Restart." Wait for the computer to restart, then press the eject button repeatedly.


Remove the DVD if the drive pops out.

Since there is no hole skip this and go to cleaning the lens.
Shine a flashlight on the DVD tray and locate the small hole near the eject button.


This is the bypass hole and it allows you to eject a DVD when it becomes stuck.

Insert an unbent paper clip into the hole and push it in until you hear the DVD begin to spin. Push the paper clip in until the drive pops out.


Remove the DVD and insert another one.

Use the bypass hole again if the new DVD becomes stuck.


If the new DVD sticks as well, you need to clean the laser lens on the DVD drive.

Insert a laser lens cleaning DVD and close the tray.


Run the laser lens cleaning program at least three or four times to make sure the lens receives a thorough cleaning.


Restart your computer and insert a DVD to test the unit.

Look on the front of the tray where the eject button is There should be a small round hole, this is for ejecting a stuck disk. Just open out a paper clip and insert in to the hole and press until the tray opens.

There is a small hole in the front of the drive next to the button, this hole is the manual release. Use a paper clip, push it into the hole and the slide will release. If the disc is jammed, you may need to pull slightly on the slide when pushing with the paper clip.
