Hello,

When this happens it is usually one thing, but could be two.

The most common reason is that the button you use to open and close is stuck in the IN position. Turn the PC off with the drive door held open. Using a paperclip try to get behind the push button and press it outwards.

Second most common problem, the switch the button activates is worn and has failed in the depressed position.

Fortunately, replacement CDROM/DVDROM are rather inexpensive, but you would need a technically savy friend or relative to help you or you can ask your friendly neighborhood computer guru to help. Or, lastly, you can take this into a shop for a replacement as the newer drive will be better and faster than what you have now.

As always, if you have any need for clarification or further questions please do not hesitate to comment back to me.


Regards,
Worldvet

HOW DO I OPEN THE CD DRIVE


Hello. The stuck cd drive door. Bin there before. Use a paper clip, bend out one of the arms of the paper clip. Look for a tinny sized pin hole on the cd drive door. Use the paper clip as a push key. Put the paper clip leg in to the hole, lightly push in and pull the cd drive door lightly toward you. Then you can take out the cd and push to closed the door. Then you can use the computer as before. But remember to keep the paper clip as your emergency key. Good Luck.

Sony dav-dz555k home theatre system-dvd tray keeps opening and closing, wont read disc at all. have to manually push tray closed and change setting from dvd to something else to stop it.


You seem to be having a door sensor problem. When the CD tray closes a small switch under the loading tray shorts telling the microprocessor the door is closed and to stop the motor (either way when it opens or when it closes). A malfunction in this switch causes this symptom.

The ignition bell wont stop ringing


You need to unplug the door harness one at a time to locate which door is causing the problem. Once the door is located, you can replace the switch which is located on the lock mechanism.

Bell wont stop ringing


Thankyou,

Bonjour, dearest Sir/Madamme, it would be an honor to help you out, the bell is a door open and close alert system in the Elite. They are usually activated with time. On the hinges on the doors, there are sometimes tilt switches, the tell the circuit system when to alert, as soon as the door is open some count time, if the time is prolonged, and the switches are open, (that would mean the door is open as well). They activate. I would check the door hing, a swith could be open/closed depending on the format of operation.
Thankyou, :)

Warning bell won't stop sounding


Sounds like your door sensors are going bad and are not relaying to the computer that the doors are fully closed, with that being said you will need to replace them and also at the same time it will stop the door locks from going crazy

Cant get vista off my pakardbell i media x2414 i would like to put xp on it


Dear Sir.

In order to get xp on your computer.

You need to install windows xp by formating your computer by using the windows xp operating system cd.

If your computer comes vista installed on that you need to get xp cd from your packerd bell support.

Hello,

We need a few clarification questions answered before we can proceed. Okay?

What is the model of your Packerd Bell computer? In you desktop you can press simultaneously the Windows key and the Pause key and the information should be on this pop up window.

Also send us the version and SP number of the version of Windows you are using.

You've come to the right place as many of us here have previous experience with older computers such as yours.
