Question about Computers & Internet

Open Question

I can't eject my dvd drive, and when i pressed the eject button at the side of my laptop, it doesnt eject as well. I tried everything to eject, but doesn't work. The only thing that worked is only when i use a pin to poke the small tiny hole beside the eject button at the side of my laptop. Even after I put a disc in there, my laptop can't read the disc. I've used basically every programs but doesn't work. I've tried going to the regedit and delete the upper and lower filter, but the thing is, none of the filter exist. My laptop is inspiron 1520. My dvd drive is basically DEAD and I was just wondering if theres any other way to make it alive again other than buying a new one.

SOURCE: Acer aspire 4720z DVD drive not working

Hey,

it could be a dirty lens. here's a video on the cleaning, its annoyingly loud but shows how to clean the lens with rubbing alcohol.

might want to turn the volume down in advance:

its for a ps2 but the drive is basically the same, and you would clean the lens in the same way.

if this doesn't solve the problem, you would probably have to disassemble the drive completely and get it working properly and put it back together, might want to get the help of a pro for that.

Last option is to replace the dvd drive completely, it will definitely solve the problem, You can buy such a drive from few places, few come to mind, for example, www.ebay.com, www.pchub.com and www.acerparts.com

Let me know how that goes,
Thanks,
Ekse

I would always go with an extended warrenty dell pc's usually don't use the best hardware and tend to die in the 2-3 year range. The only reason I would say don't get it is if you are just going to go out and get a new if that one dies anyways.

Look carefully at the front of the drive, near the eject button. There maybe a small hole. If there is insert a straightened paper clip and the drive will open.

Door will not open


make sure the drive is not reading a disk, because if its spinning it can break when you do this process.

look for a hole in the front of the drive, get a paper clip and stick it in there all the way, the tray will now eject or if its a slot loading drive the cd will eject

The DVD tray doesnt eject


either it is the ribbon wire, the motor that ejects the tray or the belt that connect the tray and motor is the problem. In case the above three are fine, replace the drive as the sparking might kill your moterboard.

Cd/dvd drive


You can see a hole located on the tray of the cd rom drive. Commonly seen beside the button to eject the cd out. Grab a small pin and push the hole and this should eject the tray. Close the tray again by pressing the button. Eject it using the button. If everything still failed, call up Dell to have the CD Rom Drive replaced.
