Check the dvd drive and see if there is any damaged on its plastics that may cause the issue. make sure the drive tray is not being stuck and nothing is preventing it from opening or closing. next, try to remove and reconnect its power and data cables. Using different cables if available may also help. if using the eject button works, but not through the OS, a possible reinstall of the driver, the firmware and even of the OS may be necessary. if all else fails, there is a chance that you may need to get a drive replacement.

Open & close disc doesn't work. It is open not but I can't close it. Looks like both open and close don't work.


Hello
There are three possibilities for this trouble with this DVD player. The first one is imprper loading function due to loading motor or loading belt trouble. If loading motor is weak [that is its pulling power has gone low] the tray will not close properly into the mechanism, and will not touch the load sensor switch fitted inside the mechanism. If this happens, the main system control IC will detect improper loading and will turn the tray out again to load it properly. Just try to close it without a disc inside the tray, and check whether it closes well. If it does so, or the trouble repeats, change the loading belt first. In most cases, this will retify this type of trouble.
The second one is, bad 'Sled' motor. sled motor is one, which spins the disc inside the mechanism. After proper loading, if the disc do not spin inside it, again the system control IC will sense it, and will eject the tray. The sled motor also is a replacable part.
The third one is, damaged gear wheel in the loading gear section. to detect and repair any of above trouble, you have to open your DVD player, and take the DVD mechanism out of it, and is somewhat semi-skilled work indeed. Check these first. If you want anymore assistance from me, feel free to get be by fixya. If you are somewhat skilled, and have confidence and can follow the diagrams, send your email address to me by FixYa. I'll send the service manual of your DVD player by return mail. All details and disassemblng procedure are in it. OK

I have a dell laptop and a DVD is stuck in the drive


You will see a tiny hole in front of your dvd drive, it is usually beside the light indicator, deep in a pin into it and the drive will open even without the laptop being on.

Try it, it might help

I wish you the best.

Cd tray opening and closing all the time


Dear friend, my sony dvd drive tray opens and closes itself, it is mostly a problem related to hardware. in my case I removed the IDE Data cable connected to the dvd drive and reconnected it again. now my dvd drive works well, I think the problem was the IDE data cable, may be a loose contact.due to this loose cantact,a jung signal goes to the dvd drive, which opens and closes the tray frequently without our knowledge.

My DVD drive does not open


Yes, there is a manual way to open it. On most DVD players there is a small hole underneath the door. Push a paperclip in there until the door pops open a little. Then, pull open the door and remove your disk.

DVD tray automatically opens and closes


Is the drive reading disc properly? if no then just change the drive.

If it can read disc then

1) Do an msconfig & disable startup - just to make sure that there are no pesky script or applcation doing it.

2) change the SATA port on motherboard or toogle between master & slave if IDE cable is been used.

Still if its not working then just change the drive.

My DVD drive does not open


I suggest you may have accidently put another disk in your DVD drive on top of the one used previously without removing it first: I know, I did just that, and the teeth may now be sheared on the drive wheels which means it will probably need replacing with a new one.
To open manually, look for the tiny hole beside the Open/close button just under the drawer and insert a long slim steel probe which will activate a switch to open the drawer. (Have a look among your kitchen utensils, there might be something there).
Hope it works, but you may find you need a new DVD/RW unit, so have a look around in the New Year Sales and use the opportunity to buy the best you can find at a bargain price.

My cd/dvd opens then closes


> I've already replaced it once

Well, I've seen CD-drives that would re-open, when you try to close them -- it is _falsely_ detecting a "jam" as the tray is closing, and then just re-opens the tray, rather than "forcing" itself to close.

Replacing the CD-drive is the only way to fix that type of "false-positive" jam-detection conditions.

But, since you've done that, either you were unlucky-enough that the replacement drive was also "defective", or, you have a computer-virus on your computer that is maliciously issuing commands to the CD to "open-the-tray".
