How can I manually open the DVD drive on SONY Vaio PCV 7762 desktop? The drive does not open. There is no DVD in the drive & to my knowledge it was not attempted to be open while in sleep mode, nor can I find a manual eject button of any kind. I have tried numerous ways to open with suggestions I read in forums, to no avail. HELP!!!

You can manually open the DVD drive by inserting a strsighten paper clip into a tiny hole just beleow the drive tray. Push the paper clip into this hole gently and the tray will pop out slightly, then grab the tray and pull it out until the tray is in the fully opened position.

Some computers have a cover over the drive tray. It flips out of the way during normal operation. If you have this type of cover pull it away from the drive and see if you can access the emergency eject hole with a paperclip. If that fails, try removing the entire front panel of the desktop. (The hole is in line with the eject button below the tray on most drives.)

I hope this helps.

Sony PCV-7762 Service manual


First of all, the Sony Vaio desktop case is like trying to open Fort Knox. It is quite well built, but hardly gives any clues about how to open it to work on it inside. Here's a link that specifically addresses this situation:

Vaio PCV-W30- The computer stops at the blue Windows XP screen and will not load Windows. The DVD drive will not open. Cant do a restore. Any suggestions?


Should be a small hole in DVD drive lid.
Turn off computer and carefully insert a straightened paper clip.
Gently push & the lid should pop out.
Then you can open the drive & use the windows cd to repair/restore

Problem with Sony Vaio pcv-rx860 (screen goes black at startup)


I would suggest first to try to take one stick of memory out and try to boot up the pc. Sometimes, one or both of the memory sticks can go bad or the memory slot on the motherboard itself can go bad. If that is not the case I would then remove all of the usb connected to the computer and last i would test the power supply.

Sony pcv-rx860 dvd drive will not open to remove cd-


Hi, if you look at the front of your cd drive you will see a little hole. This is an eject mechanism. If you insert a paperclip in this whole you should be able to manually push the drive open. Once it is open it may release what ever is causing the drive to jam.

I hope this helps.

Hi there. I've worked for Sony VAIO and can assure you that the only solution is to get a Sony Branded Spare parts. The parts of Sony VAIO are very specific. As of now I see that the only solution for you is to either contact Sony Service Center or go for an external DVD Drive.
