    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 do not know the particulars of the eMac, but most CD drives have a little hole in which to insert a needle, in order to open the door manually, and extract the stuck CD. Look for it in the area surrounding the retracting door. Some units dont have doors, and inserting a pin will also force the disk right out.

Put CD in the open slot on front, not the CD tray

First try to open the door manually by inserting an open safety pin or something very small in a small opening in front of the CD driver you may be able to get it out if not you need to open your computer and get it out but need more info about your system
....let me know if that work for you and please do not forget to rate my service so I am able to continue providing same...god bless

The cd-rom door not open

You have encountered a problem often seeen in LG models. It could have spontaneously generated or as a sideeffect of recent servicing. It is difficult to correct. so an alternative way is use a pin to force open the door.
On the front panel there will be a small mm hole through which insert a straightened paper slip to force eject the door. once door is out a little. pull it or use button to fully take out the tray.

For future, always keep a cd rom inside. that will probably let you eject the tray automatically. Problem occurs usually only withthe empty tray. good luck

Emachines w3507 DVD Rom Broken

There may be a hole but it will be under the lip of the door, kind of impossible to get to. You may have to remove the drive from the emachine and unscrew it and open it manually with a small screwdriver. I regularly buy and repair or use parts from used samsung drives which is what emachines uses almost exclusively. The only upside to this is that once open, you can swap the faceplates and doors onto newer drives. If the led light is not in the middle then you can swap out the little plug in circuit too.
