This has to do with a malfunction in the ejection system in the drive. Sometimes this can be caused by a little dirt or corrosion on the mechanism, however, a majority of the time the problem cannot be fixed and the drive has to be replaced. Start by removing the drive from the machine, taking it apart, and cleaning the inside where the ejection mechanism is. If cleaning doesn't work, then I'm afraid you'll have to replace it.

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.

My dell studio 1737 keeps making clicking sound and wont eject tried my computer, tried funtion key not doing anything please help


It sounds like your CD/DVD rom is stuck or damaged. If the drive is empty, this means that something is wrong with the drive itself.

Often, you can use a paperclip that has been bent straight to open this. insert the paper clip into the tiny hole on the door pannel of your CD/DVD drive and most of the time it should pop right open.

if it does not pop open right away, I have seen situations where the disc becomes lodged inside the case and will not allow the door to open at all. This may require you to take your laptop to a repair facility and explain the situation to them.

If you are feeling very confident, you can try to remove the CD rom drive from your laptop, remove the outer casing and see if you can dislodge the disc that way.

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!!

I have a Sony AR230GSeries and all of a sudden the cd tray will not stay shut, it keeps popping open. Thanks


A gear has jumped track or the insert sensor is malfunctioning. These are cheap, and you can do it yourself. Go to the Sony support site to order the part.

Cd/dvd drive won't stay shut


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.
