I am not sure if I'm understanding your question correctly but if you can remove the front panel of your tower you will have better chances of finding solution like how to use your disk drive with out the door.

I have an acer aspire x1200-b1601a with a cd/dvd drive that will not open without putting the tip of a knife along the edge and prying it open. the "magic" pinhole is behind the case's cover and cann



CD-ROM, DVD, or other disc tray not opening Locking device or software installed First, verify no locking software installed that prevents the tray from opening. If you are unsure, reboot the computer and as it is booting up, eject the tray. If the tray can eject as it is booting, but stops working after loading your operating system, something is being loaded that is preventing the drive tray from opening. Programs used to burn CDs are a common culprit.
Bad eject button If you are running Microsoft Windows, open My computer, right-click the disc drive icon and choose the option to eject. If this ejects your CD-ROM drive tray, the button on the disc drive is defective, and it is recommended that the drive be replaced.
No power to computer or disc drive If you have recently installed a new optical drive or you have moved the computer, the power cable to the CD-ROM may have become loose or disconnected. Reseat the power cable to make sure this is not the problem.
CD stuck within drive If you suspect that a CD may be stuck within the drive, the tray needs to be ejected manually. Look for the small manual eject hole that ( not the head phone jack) located on the front of the drive. Unwind a paper clip and place one end of the paper clip into the hole to eject the CD-ROM tray.

If CD-ROM tray opens part of the way, pull it gently to see if you can get it to open fully. If it cannot be opened any further, it is likely that the gears within the CD-ROM drive have become damaged or dislodged. But usually, a stuck CD is blocking the way.

Caution: If you are able to open the CD-ROM drive using a paper clip, we do not recommend continuing to do so. This is meant to be used as a temporary solution; the drive should be replaced.

What to do if CD or DVD stuck in drive? Note: This document is for disc drives with a disc in the drive that prevents the tray from opening. See our CD-ROM, DVD, or other disc tray not opening document, if the tray is not opening at all or doesn't seem to be getting power.
If the CD or DVD is not set into the disc tray correctly, it could be sticking up above the surface of the tray, causing it to get stuck with then tray tries to open. In this case, it may be possible gently shake the computer and move the CD or DVD into the correct place in the tray, allowing the drive to open. However, use caution when doing this, as you do not want to shake the computer too much, or you could damage other components.
If this is a desktop computer, you can prevent damage to the computer by opening the computer and removing the disc drive in order to shake or rotate the drive. When the drive is out of the computer, you can manually release the tray by inserting a paperclip into the manual eject hole.

In the case of a laptop computer or a slot load disc drive, since the CD or DVD does not sit in a tray, it cannot be shaken in order to adjust the disc. If the disc is visible you may be able to move the disc a bit by hand, enough to allow the drive to eject the disc. Again, be careful in doing so, as you could damage the disc or drive in the process.
If you're still unable to get the disc out of the drive after following the above steps, it may be a damaged drive and should be replaced. If the disc in the drive is an important disc and you believe the drive is bad, the drive can be disassembled in order to remove the disc. In the case of a laptop or computer with a slot load disc drive, the computer needs to be serviced in order for the drive the be replaced and the disc to be removed.

How to open driver door


Do you mean the disc drive tray won't open? Or do you mean you have a front panel cover on your computer that won't open? If the disc drive tray won't open it could just be stuck, if you look closely at your disc drives front panel you'll see a small hole, take a paper clip our some thing about 3 inches long that will fit in the hole insert it into the hole you'll feel it bottom out if you push on the paper clip firmly your disc drive door will open, ( I would do this with the computer turned off) If there's a disc in there take it out if not just push the try back closed don't force it completely closed it will do that itself, now turn on your computer let it completely finish booting and see if it the drive works. If it does not it's probably time for a new disc drive. I hope this helps

Emachine disk door want open


I'm assuming the CD drive door is stuck and won't open. You will see a small hole in front of the drive. Take a pin and insert it in the hole and push it. The drive should open up.

We have a computer model T3092. The compact disc section wont pen and it has a cd stuck in there. How to open?


Hello,

Look closely at the front of the drive. There is a small hole, usually right under the slot door. Get a paper clip and unroll it. Push the paper clip straight through the hole. You should be able to feel it when it releases the catch on the drive door.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I was trying to create the Recovery Management disk but everytime I try to burn the CD it keeps ejecting. I would really like it if you could provide some help. I recently bought this E-Machine computer...


Welcome to Fixya

Please see procedure below on how to create recovery disk. Let me know if smae thing will happen.

    Click "Create Factory Default Disc." The program will tell you how many discs you will need. Make sure the correct optical drive is selected, then insert a blank disc into that drive. Click "Start" to begin the burning process.

  • 3

    Remove the disc when it is finished burning and label it "Recovery CD 1." Insert the next the next blank disc if one is required. Click "OK" to begin burning the next disc. Repeat this step until all of the discs have been created and labeled. Close the eMachines Recovery Management program, insert the system CD that came with the laptop and restart the laptop.

    Press "F12" repeatedly when the eMachines logo is displayed on the screen to be redirected to the Boot menu. Select the optical drive, then press "Enter."

    Click the "Restore" tab in the list on the left side of the eMachines Recovery Management program window, then select "Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults." The computer automatically restarts and the recovery process begins. Insert any additional recovery discs as requested.

    Emachine-new-disc door used 3 times, now it will not open. Help.


    Open "My Computer".
    Point at the icon for the CD-drive.
    Click with the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse-button on that icon.
    Choose "eject", to open the door.

    If that does not work, then exercise the WARRANTY on your NEW computer to get the problem fixed, at no cost to you.

    CD/DVD drive stuck CLOSED and NO pin hole


    Use my computer and select the drive (eg drive E:). From pull down menu "File" select "eject". While the disk door attempts to open (hear slight movement of tray) massage the door with your fingers. This is done by smoothing out the across front door panel with your finger tips and pushing in and releasing pressure from door. Door should slide open partially and close again. Repeat. The eject button nearside the disc tray doesn't seem to work as well as selecting "File" and "Eject" from the menu. Something to do with the door cycle is less with the direct eject button.

    My cd-rom


    Hi, You should be able to get a paper clip, preferably one of the bigger ones and open it out so you have a straight section of wire, then at the fron of the CD drive you will find a very small hole. Carefully slip the wire into the hole as far as it will go then you will need to push against the manual release with reasonable pressure and the door will come open. Remove your disk and close the door and restart the machine. It may be that the disc became stuck for some reason and froze the drive. Once the offending disc is removed it will hopefully come back online.
    If it doesn't come back then the CD drive may have failed, fortunately they are not too expensive to replace anymore.
