Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

1 Answer

The DVD tray only opens after I push the button 3 or four times. When I press the button, the tray attempts to open but seems to be blocked. Finally, after several attempts, the tray will function normally, but I have to go through this procedure each time I use the DVD tray.

The optical unit - it's tray mechanism to be more precise - has aged and it's starting to seize. Unfixable, you will have to replace it. Luckily a new dvd unit costs less than $30 and can be bought even at Walmart. Installing it is a 10 minute job that you can do yourself easily.

Good evening. I have a Thomson DTH 5000 I am unable to retrieve a dvd from it as the drawer appears to be stuck!! any ideas as to how to sort out this problem. Many thanksja


Take the cover off the device, and look for anything blocking the DVD tray. If nothing can be seen, remove DVD by hand, and try manually pushing open the tray after pressing the open button.

CAUTION: Once the tray moves, get your fingers out of there FAST! The tray might not be able to cut you, but it will hurt like no other if your fingers get stuck in there!

Once the tray is open, push the open button a few times to open and close the tray. This will loosen any debris that may have blocked it. If it still won't move, then the motor has gone out or been disconnected. Have someone with experience working with electronic circuit boards take a look at it to determine the problem.


Hope that helps!

I was attempting to install program and now, the drawer will not open. I did the paperclip trick to no avail. It makes an attempt to open but the rod (?) seems to not be able to push the drawer open. ...


The "paperclip trick" should work - try doing it with the power to the PC off next time. You may have to angle the clip a little left, right up or down to find the point that needs to be pushed. Each time you pull out and push in the tray will move outward. - repeat as needed to remove the disk from the tray.

Power up the computer and gently push the tray in manually. It make not eject w/ the button or software command until the next power down / power up cycle, and then it should return to working as expected.

The tray on my Phillips DVDR 3380 won't open. It says blocked or no disc. I have pressed open /close many times but to no avail.I have turned the power off, makes no difference. I have press stop when it...


I have the same problem. What I do is push my hand down firmly on top of the DVD Recorder above the tray and while doing this press the open button. If this doesn't work get a screwdriver and poke it into the sides of the tray and pull it away. I find that the first method works best! XD

Hope This Helps!

Disc tray


My console does the same thing just take the faceplate off and when you press the open button grab the disc tray and gently assist your console in pushing out the tray. Taking the faceplate off does not terminate your warranty.
