There is a tiny hole in the front of the drive precisely to overcome this problem. Carefully straighten out a paper clip to give you about 1-half inches. Carefully introduce it into the hole and gently push until you feel resistance. This means the paper clip has touched the special release mechanism inside.
Pushing in a little further, you will find a little further resistance and then the drive will start to open a little. Keep pushing until about half an inch of the drive is exposed which will allow you to very carefully open the drive manually. It is perfectly safe to do this and is an accepted method with all 'stand-alone' CD/DVD ROM drives sold for installing in computers. Most CD/DVD ROM Drive manufacturers actually include a special, 3 inch long tool about the same dimension as a paper clip when you but a new drive.
Be careful and don't rush it.
Follow this procedure with the equipment completely switched OFF.
When you switch ON again, the drive will automatically close itself and you will be 'back in business'.
Good Luck

I have a 99 Ford Superduty 7.3 Diesel. It is making a really bad grinding/screeching sound just after it starts and is warming up. It wouldn't ******* off all the way even after the key was turned


indicates that the starter motor is stuck in the ring gear
possibly faulty starter relay or starter solenoid
pull the starter as the pinion over ride clutch is probably damaged ( noise ) and have the start circuit and relay checked
have the starter bench tested for serviceability by an accredited auto electrician

My 2005 saturn vue makes a loud noise,shakes,wont go very fast and shuts off


The only thing that can make a loud noise shakes and go very fast, Is a open TAC (Throttle actuator motor) being stuck open. This applies to a 4 cylinder and 6 cylinder.A disconnected MAF (mass air flow) if this duct came out same situation, Just inspect the duct make sure its on.

My wii makes loud noises and when i turn the game on it says to eject disc turn off wii and look at the manuel. Sometimes the game will load but will shut off during and says disc can not be read. How can...


Sounds like something is stuck inside of your Wii's DVD Drive... someone may have stuck something in the slot? Coins? credit card? paper? Etc... sounds like this is preventing the disc from being read properly. Either this, or something inside of the drive has become broken.

The following website sells the DVD drive mechanisms and does repairs on the Wii as well:

Why Samsung CLP-300 Printer making annoying/loud clicking noises?


So try to get the black toner cartridge out of the Machine. On zhe backside of the Cardridge is a gear. Try to turn the gear, maybe the Toner inside is clump together. When you can turn it very easy in both directions it's fine.

Xbox 360 tray wont stay shut


I just solved this problem, very simple actually. Possibly can happen when the drive WILL close, but then loud noise as it tries to spin the disc up. Open the drive up (4 little screws on the bottom) and lift the lid up. If you look on the top white magnet spinner, the bottom side of the magnet system broke off of the disc motor. It will look like a little metal ring stuck to the white spinner thing whatever it's called. I popped that off and examined it, then used some krazy glue to stick it back on the motor spindle and it's away and going now. The reason the drive will not close, is because when the little magnet first breaks off it can get misaligned then when it tries to shut it gets in the way. The MAY be the cause to the problem. I fixed this issue today with mine, hitachi drive.
