If the mechanism that holds the tray is damaged, you have to replace the whole drive.

Toshiba satellite CD door will not open


http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/laptop-disassembly-1.htm

1) ALL power removed. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

2) Turn the laptop over bottom side up, Battery Compartment facing AWAY from you, down on a table.
You may wish to lay a soft Static free cloth on the table, to prevent scratching the table, or laptop.

3) Take this cover off,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/big/toshiba-satellite-a200-a205-02.jpg

Remove the Ram Memory module/s. ('Stick')
Lay them/it carefully aside. Handle by the BODY. The Body is everywhere on the Ram Memory module, EXCEPT the gold plated contact pins at the bottom.

The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

4) Remove this Philips head screw, and push the optical drive out,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/big/toshiba-satellite-a200-a205-03.jpg

The top of the optical drive will have small Philips head screws, or Torx screws. They sell Torx screwdrivers real cheap,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torx

Remove the screws, remove the cover, remove the disk.

How do i remove the cd dvd drive


Turn off the Toshiba laptop, remove the AC adapter and any other peripheral devices, and close the lid.

Turn the laptop over.


Touch an unpainted metal surface to discharge any static electricity. Release the battery lock-usually located near the back of the laptop-and remove the battery from its bay.


Remove the screw holding the DVD drive in place.


Where the screw is located depends on your Toshiba's model, but in newer laptops-particularly the Satellite-the screw is located next to the Toshiba sticker.


Unlike the other screws, which are embedded into the laptop, the DVD screw is even with the rest of the laptop's surface.


Gently pull the DVD drive from its bay to remove it from the laptop

hope this helps

I need a replacement optical drive for the Toshiba A45-s151. I've googled for an hour and can't find a simple list of possible replacements. Any ideas where to look? Thanks in advance.


The "good" news is that laptop CD/DVD devices are "generic", i.e., just buy a new one, and it will fit, once you remove the face-plate from the old drive-tray, and connect it to the new drive-tray.

However, replacing a CD/DVD device in a laptop is not a "beginner-level" do-it-yourself project.
Take the computer to a computer-store, and pay them to disassemble your laptop,
remove the old drive, connect the replacement drive, reassemble your laptop, and test it.

If the disk is still stuck in the drive, look closely at the draw face, you should see a small hole.

Straighten out a paper clip, or piece of wire that's fairly rigid, and push it into the hole. It should open the drive for you.

Try your disk again, if the drive fails then there's either a connection fault or the drive has had it.

HOW DO I CHANGE CD/DVD DRIVE IN A TOSHIBA SATELLITE P105-S6114?


You can use the Toshiba Satellite guide for removing and replacing the DVD/CD-ROM drive or the keyboard. On this model you have to remove the keyboard in order to remove and replace the DVD/CD-ROM drive because the optical drive securing screw is located under the keyboard. Always start laptop disassembly with removing the battery or you can damage the system board if you accidentally touch it with a screwdriver and shorten traces. Removing the keyboard strip is not very difficult, use your fingers to release the plastic latches. If you want to replace the keyboard, do not forget to unlock the connector on the system boar before you pull the cable.

Replace DVD/CD drive on Satellite A105 notebook.


Ther is probably a single swcrew that releases the entire DVD/CD drive and it pulls out. Check your owner's manual or go to Toshiba's website and download the repair/trouble shoooting/owner's manuals and they will tell you exctly what to do.

DELLS usually have a screw insode of the memory access plate or under the battery after it is removed, but I odmn't know where they are on Toshibas.
