You can manually open the tray by using a paper clip. Straighten the paper clip and insert it into a tiny hole located below the tray. Gently push the paper clip in and the tray will pop out slightly, you can then grab the tray and pull the tray out to get access to your DVD disk.

Can't push button to open CD/DVD player - won't open. Help?


What to do if you get a CD or DVD stuck in your computers optical drive, and it won't eject. You can take several steps to troubleshoot stuck DVDs or CDs.

Computers are what they are, complex. Meaning, a stuck DVD could be one of several possible things. Sometimes it may be easy to fix. Sometimes, not so easy. The best thing to do is troubleshoot the problem.
Here is what you should not do:
- Stick a screwdriver, pocket knife, credit card, or any other object into the DVD drive and try to pry it open or pull the disc out. When stuff doesn't work right, I feel like tossing my computer across the room just as much as the next guy. But just don't do it. Troubleshoot first.

Method 1 - Try Ejecting from Within Windows Navigate on over to Start > Computer. Right-click on your CD/DVD drive choose eject from the drop down menu. Sometimes you can eject the stuck disc using Windows commands.

Method 2 - Software and Drivers The CD/DVD drive was working a week ago right? But all of a sudden it just stops. Chances are good, that you may have installed a program, application, update, driver, etc., that messed with the CD/DVD drive driver.
To troubleshoot this, try doing a system restore. A system restore will uninstall several files and changes to your computer that were made within a certain time frame. If you have just recently upgraded your operating system, this often times cause some device drivers incompatibilities.
Another thing that you can try, is uninstalling the driver for your CD/DVD drive, and reinstalling it. To do this, you will need to make sure that you have a backup of your driver. You should be able to download it from your CD/DVD drive manufacturer's website.

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.
