The common problem is the bad tray open/close push-button switch. The switch behind the front panel button is very vulnerable and prone to problems. The "springiness" to the action is provided by the same piece that closes the circuit. A partial collapse of the contact will cause the switch to intermittently short out, making it act like the button has been pressed. How does the button feel when you press it? There should be a slight-but-noticeable "snap" or "click" to the feel of it. These switches are cheap and easy to replace. Sometimes, the plastic button binds in the panel never fully pops back out when pressed -- try wiggling it by probing its edge with a round toothpick to check this.

Emachine cd tray stuck closed

Hi beverlylu328,

It seems like your cd tray has already a defective mechanism.
If a cd was stuck in your cdrom, use the safety eject pin included in the cdrom package.
You can use this even your PC is turned off.
I strongly suggest to replace your cdrom with new one.

Hope this helps you a lot.

Thank you for using FixYa!

I have a Dell tower & my son knocked out the cd tray. How do I get it back in?

first you have to open the cabinet then remove the screw in both sides which is connecting the cd rom and remove the Molex connector that is bringing power to cd drive from smps and the Ide/ sata connector from the back of the cd rom and take it our carefully from your IBALL tower through the front ........ Assuming plastic/electronics didn't physically break, it would be a simple fix. CDROMS can be tricky to take apart but I think you can do it boss
1)First you have to unscrew all the thin star screws from the bottom and then slide the steel panel to approach the chip panel (IC)
2)Then there will be a slider like thing in the black panel you can use the screw driver to slide it to the right ... By doing that you can either open the cd tray or close it if its stuck or some thing ...
3) you can remove the clip in the both sides of the cdrom and remove the front panel which containing brand name by removing that you can remove steel panel in the top like we did in the bottom now you can have a clear view
4) Analyze if the two white colored plastic which is helping to open and close is working /broken or the rubber around the motor is working/ broken ,you can replace the rubber part if that is casing problems or you can carefully glu broken parts
please rate me if this helped you brother!

CD-ROM drawer deos not open

There could be a hardware issue or something stuck in there.

In front of the CD drive you will see a pin hole as shown in the image below.

Insert a pin in the hole and and press it. The tray will come a little ahead, you can pull it out. See if there is something getting stuck or any cd inside it. Close it and try to open it with the button. If it wont work it is a hardware issue and need a replacement or repair.

Note: You can take out the tray with the help of the pin, even if the PC is turned off.

or it might be a registry problem
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders







This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

How to open the cd player to put a cd in.

You have two options:
1.Push the button near the tray indicated as "open"
2.Open my computer - right click on the cdrom - choose "eject"

In order to close the tray either push the same button or push (softly) the tray or the disk.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

My computer is not letting me eject discs

Make sure you are not accessing the disc when trying to eject. You should receive an error message that the disc is busy, but sometimes it is behind another open window and you may overlook it. Close whatever files are being accessed by applications and try again.
