Blu ray player won't play or eject disc


If you want to eject the CD you need to look on the front of the Blu-Ray drive for a small hole, about the size of a pencil-lead. If you open a paper clip and insert it, it should pop the drive open for you.

Dell cd drive door won't open


CD/DVD Drive Tray problems
There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

LG v181 won't eject - it tries to load even when there is no disc and won't slide out the tray at all.


It's likely a belt that drives the tray has snapped or come off! If you take the top off you might well see it!

I have a disc in the system and it won't eject from my system, how can I get it to do that


I assume you are talking about your CD/DVD drive. Get a paper clip or similar and push into the small hole on the front of your drive. This will manually eject the disc.

Dvd door won't open for Sanyo DVW 6000


If you are trying to eject a disc, look closely at the front bezel of the drive, there is a small hole near the eject button, push a paper clip into the hole (straightened paperclip) and the tray will be ejected.

If the DVD door is stuck and will not open through ejecting via the icon in My computer, or the eject button on the bezel will not work, you likely have a faulty drive that will need to be replaced

Hi,

Try to check if you have a small hole on the optical drive (cd / dvd drive). If you see a small hole, use a paper clip to manually eject the disc. Reloading the BIOS default settings of your computer can also help.

Hope this can solve your concern.

My disc won't eject and there's no hole for paperclip.


If your DVD Drive came with the computer originally your DVD Drive should have an emergency eject hole.

Kindly check the emergency eject hole just on top of the eject button you will see there a hole where you can poke using a paper clip.
