My Disc tray won't open. I can hear it clicking to open the tray when I press the button, but the tray won't slide out by itself. Is there an override button or a release ''hole'' for a paperclip, like my laptop.

I have satellite C50D-B-10q. How do I open the CD/DVD drive?


Removing discs
To remove the disc, follow the steps as detailed below:
Do not press the eject button while the computer is accessing the optical disc drive. Wait for the optical disc drive indicator to go out before you open the disc tray. Also, if the disc is spinning when you open the disc tray, wait for it to stop before you remove it.
1. To pop the disc tray partially open, press the eject button. Gently pull the disc tray out until it is fully opened. When the disc tray pops open slightly, wait a moment to make sure the disc has stopped spinning before pulling the disc tray fully open.
2. The disc extends slightly over the sides of the disc tray so you can grasp it. Gently lift out the disc.
3. Push the center of the disc tray to close it. Press gently until it locks into place.

How to remove disc when the disc tray will not open:
Pressing the eject button will not open the disc tray when the computer power is off. If the power is off, you can open the disc tray by inserting a slender object (about 20 mm) such as a traightened paper clip into the manual eject hole near the eject button.

Manual eject hole:
Turn off the power before you use the manual eject hole. If the disc is spinning when you open the disc tray, the disc could fly off the spindle and cause injury.

See page 4-8 of the user manual:

How do I insert a DVD in to my Evesham novatech computer, serial no. WO00966604?


CD s and DVD s have a tray that slides out of the computer. When you get the tray open place the disk (writing if any usually on the top) in the tray, and gently press it down so that it is held by the deice in the middle. Either the tray will withdraw itself into the machine after about 10s or gently pushing it towards the machine from the front will cause the tray to enter the machine.
Press the windows button and with your mouse click on My Computer click on the CD or DVD item and the file might open ...

To open the CD/DVD tray or drawer either press gently on the front or press the little button on the front, or else go to My Computer (above) righ click on either the CD r DVD icon and then left click on open or eject on the drop down menu that should appear

Sony rdr-hx720 tray won't open and says traylocked?


The disc tray does not open and you cannot remove the disc after you press Z (open/close). ,Turn off the recorder. Once the clock appears in the front panel display, disconnect the mains lead. (If the recorder does not turn off or if the clock does not appear in the front panel display, disconnect the mains lead anyway.) Connect the mains lead again while pressing down A on the recorder, and release the button when the disc tray opens. Then, keep [/1 on the recorder pressed for about ten seconds until "WELCOME" appears in the front panel display

Go Video DV 2150 - DVD door won't open at all. You can hear a mechanism working behind the closed door, but nothing happens and the door remains shut. Any advice??


There is a small belt under the loading tray which would have gone slack ( loose ) and the sound you hear is it slipping on the motor pulley. If you are confident you can remove the mechanism and turn it upside down and access this belt. Dismantle only if you can get the spare belt or your efforts will be in vain.

How does dvd,cd seat in optical drive drawer?


Label side up, press the disc onto the hub in the center of the open tray. it will snap into place. (Be sure to support the tray, as some discs press harder than others, and you don't want to break the tray.) Slide tray into laptop.

Removing the disc is done by pressing the eject button, sliding the tray out, then grasping the outer edges of the disc, and pulling up, while simultaneously pressing down on the hub with your index finger.

Draw won,t open cant get my game out xbox360


If the tray does not open when you press the eject button, try to manually open it. To do this:
  1. Unplug your Xbox console from the power source.
  2. Locate the manual release button on your Xbox console.

    For most Xbox consoles, the manual release button is located in a small pinhole to the left of the eject button under the disc tray.

    For some Xbox consoles, the manual release button is located under the disc tray. It can be under the "O" or the "B" in the word "XBOX" that appears on the tray.
  3. Insert a straightened paper clip or other small tool in the hole at an angle to the left. Gently push the paper clip to try to press the manual release button and partially open the disc tray. This may take several tries. Typically, a thin paper clip works better than a thick paper clip.

    If you insert the paperclip in the hole and find an obstacle, this indicates that your Xbox console's manual release button is located in a different area of the console. Look under the "O" or the "B" in the word "XBOX" that appears on the tray. If this is the case, insert the paperclip under the "O" as outlined in step C. If you find an obstacle, insert the paperclip under the letter "B”. The manual release button is located in one of these three locations.
  4. After the disc tray partially opens, pull the tray with your fingers to fully open the tray.
Hope this will help u.

DVD tray will not open.


Hello,

The disc is dislodged and jamming the drawer. You have to remove the cover, about three, maybe four screws, and then take the disc out to resolve the problem.

Disc tray


My console does the same thing just take the faceplate off and when you press the open button grab the disc tray and gently assist your console in pushing out the tray. Taking the faceplate off does not terminate your warranty.
