    I put a cd in to restore some files, now it won't open so that I can take it out. I found the manual hole but it did not work either.

I have a crosley machine that records from tapes to cds .I can't get the door open to put my cd in . It clicks but won't open. Help, Please

Loading mechanism fault. Check the loading belt. If it is broken, CD won't eject, or load well inside the mechanism. If loading motor is damaged, this kind of fault can occur. Anyway, you have to take out the mechanism out of it to get it repaired. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

Open disc drive door

There's a button in the center of the CD tray you must push to get it open with the notebook powered on. If you need to open the door without power on then push a paper clip in the tiny hole on the CD door to release it.

Door will not open

Uhhhh. ummmmm... uhh. i'm assuming (from the broken english sentence with no info) that you mean the CD/DVD drive door. There is a little hole on that drive ((on the front part)) that a paperclip fits prefect. Put that in there and push hard. It will force the CD door open enuff for you to pull it open so you can take out or put in another CD/DVD. If that continues, buy a new CD palyer from Amazon or Ebay. they are very inexpensive, and those Cd/DVD drives do go out as one of the first things so its no big deal. Hope this helped you.

CD player is always reading and never acknowledges the cd

Try cleaning the cd first before putting it in the player. If that doesnt work, then the cd may be bad disc. if it has alot of scratches on it, then it will not work. if its not turning like it used to when the door opens, i dont think its a problem. its not going to move much if the door is opened.

Dell Dimension 5150 CD door closes quickly.

If an application is attempting to access the CD drive, the door will close. Put the CD in first and then launch the application.

Also possible a problem with the eject/load mechnism in the CD drive.

Disc door keeps opening.

The drawer belt may also lift the laser up to meet the CD . If the belt is bad , the CD player will kick out the CD.
Change the belt.

see care fully on the cd/dvd door, there must be a very narrow hole. This is an emergency hole to open the door.
  1. Make shutdown your Lap.
  2. Take a long niddle or hard wire.
  3. Push it gently inside the hole.
  4. It will strick inside, then push with slightly more force and you will notice that door is openning. Just push more till you can pull out CD/DVD tray by hand.

RCA 2656 bookshelf music system cd door

I have a similar stereo system and accidentally put two CD's in one tray and it got stuck and could not open. What I did was unplug everything from the unit and took off the side panel. After some careful fiddling I got it to open. You could try something like that.
