    well that's the issue i guess. i don't see any button and when pushing lightly on the tray it still won't budge

  • pscully529 Sep 02, 2010

    Well I wonder if there is something that I am not seeing. This tray, by the way even stays out when i shut the computer down but when i boot it up again it suddenly closes with no prompting so it is not really jammed.

  • pscully529 Sep 02, 2010

    Thanks Lee, but that was the point. I did not open the drive with the button. i opened it from ''çomputer' on the desktop. When i went to close it, I tried to use the button, an inocuous flat thing on the side. If you hold this button for more than a sixteenth of a second it does not work so i figured, well that's not the button and when Nina mentioned that some computers do not have buttons then I figured i would have to push the tray in manually.

You have 2 options: either you push the button on the tray (the same one that you pushed for opening the tray) or you push the tray itself (gently) at the center towards the computer. Just like this:

    Sorry but just now I noticed that you can't locate/access the open - close button. Try this tip: open my computer - right click on the dc/dvd rom. Sometimes a "close tray" command is available there.

You hit the same button that you used to open up the cd drive. You can also push the cd drive inward, though this isn't the best method after you push it in a little bit it will go in on its own, otherwise just push the same button you use to eject it. If you need further information let me know.
Thank you,
Lee

Hello.

After placing the disc in the CD drive, close the drive by selecting the button on the CD drive. That button will open and close the drive. Some drives don't have a small button, so would need to be closed manually by lightly pushing on the CD tray.

I hope I've answered your question.

Thanks for using FixYa.

    Unfortunately, if your drive won't close with light pressure to close the drive, it's probably mechanically faulty and would need to be replaced. More often, drives don't open rather than have problems closing.

  • NinaE Sep 02, 2010

    As I mentioned, the drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.

My best guess is the loading belt (famcy rubber band) to pull the tray out in yours is worn out.

Note you need to replace Sony belts with the exact belt or it will not work. You probably can find your belt on eBay, if not available in North America click international search as the Germans have several places which carry exact replacement belts.

DVD/CD ROM is not working


When you place a disc in the drive can you hear the disc spin up, if not then the DVD drive maybe faulty.
Try re-seating the DVD drive and if it still does not work then it is faulty and needs replacing.

Wont read disc


Hello

Insert the disc into the console properly. If the Wii is positioned vertically you should face the label to the right. If you lay the Wii flat, make sure the label is facing up when you insert it.

Check the disc for residue. If you spot something on the disc that could interfere with its operation or potentially get inside the console, you need to clean it. Use a dry cloth and wipe the bottom of the disc from the inside out. Do not rub it in a circular motion. This could scratch the disc.

Read the label. Wii consoles in North America will play game discs made for use in North America only. On the bottom of the label you should see a note that the disc is manufactured for Wii consoles in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Latin America.

Turn the power of the Wii off. Disconnect the AC adapter from the wall outlet and wait a couple of minutes. Plug the adapter back in and turn the console back on. Insert the disc again and see if it works.

Hard drive not Reading CD-R Discs


First off. Your hard drive cannot read CD's. Your CD-ROM is not reading CD's. Well a few things can be wrong there. 1. The CD-ROM is dead 2. The drivers for the CD-ROM needs updating 3. The CD that you are trying to read is curropt or damaged.
Start checking to eliminate and let me know.
