On the drive, should be a little hole. Take a paper clip, straighten it out, and insert it into the hole. This should open the drive so you can remove your DVD.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya. Thank you.

There is a small hole in the front of the drive next to the button, this hole is the manual release. Use a paper clip, push it into the hole and the slide will release. If the disc is jammed, you may need to pull slightly on the slide when pushing with the paper clip.

My problem is the dvd tray wont open and i know that we need to use a pin in a pinhole to open it manually..but i want to know how can i overcome this problem totally..i mean, why the tray wont open and...


It's possible that a motor has died, or the tray has come off it's runners. Because of the replacement price of these parts, it's often cheaper to just put a new drive in, than it is to get the old one repaired.

If your confident at taking it apart, then you can look to see if there is a physical problem, but because it's a class 1 laser device, then I really wouldn't recommend you opening it up.

I put a installation Cd in to install a new printer but it was not all the way in and now I can't open the drive back up.


Desktop CD/DVD drives have an emergency eject feature, which requires a straightened paper-clip.

Shut the machine down.

Look carefully at the front of the drive, you'll see a small hole. Straighten your paper clip so you have a piece of wire with a handle. Insert this directly into the hole, and push slowly and firmly. As you do this, the drive tray should open at the same time. Once it's open far enough, grab the tray and pull it all the way out, and remove the disk. The disk may have been damaged by being jammed into the drive, but maybe not.

Xbox 360 wont play games


If your Xbox 360 will not read your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive taking too much heat.

You need to send it in to get it fixed or you can fix it yourself using a good guide

Dvd drive has jammed, and is open about half a centimetre, when it is pushed in it makes a grinding noise like its trying to read a disk but wont click shut or open


Here's the thing...most people and pc makers don't realise you should never push the trays shut. Only use the button to open and close them. The reason being, as I see you have the issue of it, is that the gears can very easily jump. The only way to fix this is to remove the drive, take it apart, {gently} and separate the 2 gears. The one on the tray and the one on the motor. move the tray all the way out, then turn the motor gear all the way around so it matches with the door gears at full out position. close tray. reassemble, put back in and try it out. If all goes well, you just saved yourself a few good bucks. good luck.

Dvd jam


Using a small needle their should be a hole in the front. This is the safety eject hole that will open the drive 99% of the time. Replacing the drive is just as easy. remove the few screws on the bottom of the laptop nearest the drive and grasp ahold of the bay and slide it away from the computer....hope this helped some....

Wont Take Cd's


Assuming you've looked inside to see if anything is jammed in it, you'd probably have to take the case off to see if the drive links are broken.

Wont eject


Hi, If there is a disc in the drive it's possible that it has become jammed and therefore will not allow the door to open. If you get a large paperclip and bend out one side you will find there is a little hole in the front of the drive. Insert the straightened end of the paperclip carefully into the hole until you feel resistance. Gently but firmly you will need to apply an amount of force and the door will pop open. Remove the disc and restart the computer, hopefully the drive will now respond as required.

If not then possibly the door mechanism band/spring has become too loose or broken. At least these days CD/DVD drive are not too expensive to replace.

Let me know how you go,

Open up the unit. Find the DVD carriage you might be able to extract the DVD this way, but if you are not find the DVD carriage load and umload motor and manually turn it. This will eject the DVD.
