It sounds like a mechanical failure of the drive tray.
Use a un-bent paper clip and stick it in the tiny hole near the tray of the drive to attempt to prod the tray out of the drive.

Most likely there is something (a CD probably) stuck in the drive.

It may take a good deal of jiggling and bumping of the drive to get whatever is blocking it to come free. Be patient but firm.

My Lite-On combo sohc-5236v does not read CD but it reads DVD.


The reason for this is most likely Copyright protection. If this is the case, it will read DVDs as it is only a DVD-ROM, but what happens in the case of CDs, is that they recognise the drive as a Burner, and the Copyright that is embedded into the CD wont let the drive read it. This also happens with DVDs in some DVD burners.

The way to test this, is by getting a CD-RW disc that has music or files on it, put it in the drive, and see if it reads it. If it doesn't, then you may have a fault with the drive, but if it does read the CD-RW, then the only way round it that I know of, is to buy a CD-ROM drive and use both drives.

Urgent!!! Cannot open CD/DVD drive


Do you have a paperclip handy?

Only do this if your trying to eject. On the left side of the drive below the CD tray is small hole. Unravel the paper clip and stick it in the hole. This will eject the tray.

Otherwise restart you computer and see if that frees up your drive.

Have you tried the pin-hole yet ?
There should be a tiny hole on the front of the unit. Insert a pin and that should open it.

My liteon combo sohc-5235k won't open its door


Straighten-out a thick paperclip and push it into the small hole just below the tray, usually towards the center-left. It must be pushed in straight, and when you meet resistance, use a little force. This is the drive's "emergency open" system.
Get the disk out and then replace the drive with a different brand like Samsung, HP, Plextor, etc.

LITEON DVD/CD-RW CAN READ DVD BUT NOT AUDIO/DATA CD.


I would suggest cleaning the drive with a cleaning dvd, $19.99 at most retailers. Or you can open up your computer and verify all connections to the drive are good, disconnect and re-connect to be sure. Hope this helps.
