How do you get a stuck dvd out of the cd drive in a acer laptop?


Have you tried the tiny little hole very near the slot of your CD drive? A small straightened paperclip stuck into the hole and pressed in might push the drive open for you. Many people don't know that little hole is for that purpose.

My xbox just stop loading my games and it dont have any red light what should i do


if you have got an open tray error then you will need to get a new dvd drive. Alas you cannot just get another xbox 360 dvd drive and change it, as the dvd drive has a unique key that is only for your xbox, to replace the drive it will need to be flashed with your key from your old drive.


Have you tried a cd lense cleaner on it as it might just be dirt inside that is stopping it reading discs.

No red rings or flashing lights..does not play disc..says open tray..close tray.


You will need to clean the lense on the cd drive.
Either purchase a cd/dvd lens cleaner from walmart or similar store..

Or dismantle the 360, open up the drive, and clean the lens your self with a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol.

Flashing red power light Only


This means it is broken down. You need to call playstation, to find the number go to www.playstation.com. My friend had the same problem, that means there's something wrong with it.

Hey Jay- There is a plastic disc that sits on the centre of the drive inside the box, this disc has a magnet in it that is supposed to hold the game cd in place. What's happened is the plastic has become dislodged from the computer drive and is not the magnet portion is stuck to the drive housing (also metal).

You need to open up the game console, remove the drive and the drive cover and get that plastic disc out of it's holding plate. Once out, you just reinsert the drive (without the cover) and set the disc on top of the game cd-give the game a spin or two with your fingers and it should start up....problem fixed

If you search on Youtube you can see a repair video for this. It takes time, and you have to tear apart the game to get at this puppy. I've since fixed mine and left the plastic game housing off as well, so as to get rid of the overheating problem.

Screw microsoft and their crappy manufacturers.

Xbox 360 samsung m25 game fault


It's Not The dvd drive key otherwise you'd get the three red light lights. It's most probably a bad firmware flash try and reflash it to the original firmware with the same dvd drive key and see if that works.

DVD-videos won't play, games do


If your PS2 is chipped for playing PS2 fake games then try the following steps: 1)Insert the DVD movie in your PS2 and hold the power button of PS2 until it light goes red. 2)Now again hold the power button until the light turns in green. and after that your DVD movie should work. ________________________________________________ If above solution does not works replace the lens with a new one.
