    I have this same product (HP Pavillion dv9000) and cd/dvd tray only closes and stays closed if the computer is off or in sleep mode. When it turns on the tray just pops back open and when it's on, in won't stay closed.

    mine will only stay shut while off. It clicks shut then makes some 2 little noises and the rectangular light flashes as if its going to spin the disk. But, it pops back out anyway. No matter how i shut it, it will not stay closed.

    I push on the tray so it will close, and it does but only for a few seconds. then the small rectangular light flashes and it makes this noise like it's going to play the disc but it just opens again. what should i do?

I have the dv9000z. If I do NOT push the DVD drive tray all the way in until it CLICKS shut, then it OPENS again after 1-2 seconds. This is normal. I have found that most times when I close the DVD tray drive, I am not pushing it in far enough, because the top of the DVD tray is rubbing against the laptop's case. If I just press down VERY SLIGHTLY and push the DVD tray in, the tray will fully close and CLICK shut. This works for me. Good luck.

Whenever i put a dvd/cd in my hp probook 4510s and try to open it, it insteads ejects


Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, then close the lid and turn the laptop over and remove the one screw that holds the dvd drive in place on the bottom of the laptop. Remove the Dvd Drive and in about 20 seconds put it back in and Try rebooting to see if it solves the problem.

Your dvd drive might be defective and needs to be replaced. You can find one on ebay. Just put HP Probook 4510s DvD drive in the search.

Once you take the dvd drive out you can also search on the model of the dvd drive. The model will be listed on the dvd drive.

My Dell Inspiron CD Drive Won't Stay Shut


Wow. Power off the laptop then turn it over. Look for the one screw that holds the cd drive. It will have a circular icon on it. Remove the screw and then pull the cd drive out. Then put it back in and replace the screw. Hopefully all it needed was to be reseated.

Cd rom drive door will not stay closed. i close it and then seconds later its back open again.


There's a little piece of plastic or metal that's connected to a sprin which clicks into place when you close the dvd drive and keeps it closed. Either the spring or the plastics is stuck or broken. They're very easy to replace and used ones don't cost much

Dvd door keeps opening. Won't load dvd. Won't stay closed.Compaq laptop. Bought at Wal Mart this summer. Problem started a few weeks ago. Aaaaargh.


Check and make sure a disk is not stuck in the disk drive. If a disk is not stuck try closing the door and hold the door close, shut down the computer. Start the computer and hold the the door while the computer reboots. Hope this fixes it. djmax1966@yahoo.com..

My toshiba computer optical disk drive wont open but it keeps flashing i dont know what to do! help me please


Hi there.
There are a couple of ways to open the CD/DVD tray.
Firstly you can right click on the CD/DVD icon in my computer/computer and select eject from the sub menu, or if you look very close at the CD/DVD drive near the eject button for a very small hole, if you see one get a paperclip, straighten it out and push one end in the hole until the tray ejects.


Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Toshiba A135-S2276 with a Hitachi GSA-T10N DVD/CD Drive.


The laser went to it´s maker. Problably you will have to replace the drive, but before you do that, try cleaning VERY GENTLY the laser lens with a 80/20 solution of water and alcohol. Close the drive and let it dry for a few minutes before inserting a disc. Sometimes it works.

DVD/RW Recognition Issue


+/- media matters =)

make sure you're using compatible media... some cd/dvd drive will do this spinning and spit out the media they don't recognize. if you're inserting blank cd/dvd, check the lable on the disk if you're using the plus "+" then replace it with a minus "-" then vise versa...
