Question about HP Pavilion 533w (P9859AR#ABA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

The cd writer/dvd tray on my hp pavilion 533w will not open. When I press the button to open the green light comes on and I can hear a whirring sound but then the light goes out and tray doesn't open. There is NO small hole on the front of this tower to put in a paper clip (as suggested by others). Any help is greatly appreciated. I have a CD of my grandkids that I cannot install!!

I understand you can't find that pin hole that's supposed to be there. but just to clarify it's supposed to be on the face of the cd/dvd, not the case. also, just trying to help, did you try opening it WHILE your pc was booting up? maybe try from windows explorer and right click on the drive from that window and try eject or open option.

Lightscribe dvd drive won't work. the eject command does not make it open either. seems to be jammed. if i break it down can it be "unjammed" without ruining it?


Actually it's probaly just got some dust or something in it. What you do to manually open it is take a needle, thumb tack, or safety pin and simply insert it into the tiny hole above the eject button on the dvd drive itself. You'll feel the tip of the button when you push the pin into the hole then it will pop the door and the drive will open properly. This has gone on for cd/dvd drives for years. Usually just the cause of dust or what have you being stuck in the mechanism.

Hp pavillion 533w wont boot up green light on front comes on but thats it no fans coming on either


Hi ,

If the green light comes on on the front panel then it means the fan is spinning so what u can do is a self test for the monitor.Disconnect the vga cable from the back panel of the computer tower and then check if there is a message displayed on the monitor that should say check video signal or no inoput signal ,if there is no such message displayed then it means the monitor is a fault .If not then reset the memory card and then check .U can also run a test for the motherboard to do this u will have to remove the memory card and then turn the computer on if u hear long beeping noise it means the motherboard is fine .If u dont hear any sound then the mother board needs to be repaired or replaced...

all the best

Pavilion 533w cannot read dvd from DVD ROM drive but CAN read CDs. A restore of Windows XP was performed using HP's non-destructive recovery option.


The combo uses two lasers - one for the dvd and the other for the cd. If the unit works perfectly on cd and at all on dvd then the dvd laser has died and the entire unit with it, it can't be fixed. Buy a new dvd writer and junk the old one.

Can't get the hp cd writer/dvd drawer to open. Pressing on arrow gets no results


You will have small hole on the drive. You may need a neddle to put it in. This will help to eject the disk out. But if this is a regular process then probably the gear mechanism is at fault which needs to be taken to a service center for repair.

Problem of tray opening on hp dvd burner. I got the door open as suggested above with paperclip. Then took some CRC 2-26 plastic safe electrical grade lubricant and swabbed the pivoting door mechanism. Opened with the paperclip about 5-6 more times until it finally opens normally.
