You don't mention which model this is..so this is a generic solution
Best solution. If you can't get the CD tro eject by the paperclip method, or by trying to eject using the DVD drive icon in my computer try this:

Under the laptop, locate the screw that holds the DVD drive in place and gently ease the dvd drive out of the laptop body. (If you are unlucky, it may be locate under the keyboard, in which case,you will need to remove the keyboard).

Once out, at the sides of the DVD drive, there are 2 small plastic clips that need to be gently pushed inwards, this will release the front cover plate. Once this is removed, you should be able to get access to the drive and ease out the CD by pressing the contact that releases the tray

Check the operartion of the tray, if it is rough or notchy and does not go back smoothly,. you may need to replace the drive

DVD stuck in my Yamaha DVD-c6761 DVD/CD player. How do I get it out so my player will open and work properly again.


Unbend a paper clip.Look very closely at the area around the CD/DVD drive door until you find a really small hole - it almost looks like an accident (probably just below the door). Insert the paper clip in the hole (don't be afraid). Push the paper clip gently to press the spring-loaded latch.Your CD/DVD tray should open right up. That's it. Deals Prices

How do I remove the back of my Gateway ZX6971-UR30P. I have a cd stuck in the disc drive and the door won't open.


Have you tried to use a straightened out paper clip to eject the disc. You should see a small hole next to the eject button on the disc drive, just push the paper clip in that and the drive door should open.

Cd door is stuck


If you cannot open it with the button on the door, start the computer and click on the start button, select COMPUTER, it should show the drives that are on the computer, Right click on the cd drive and a menu comes up that has the option to EJECT. See if that works. If it does not, there is a small pin hole in the door slot that you can stick a paper clip in that you bent to fit in the hole. Press the paper clip into the slot till the drive door opens. If you have to do that then you should replace the drive.

How do you eject a stuck disk


Hi there,

Well you may start by turning the computer off. Get a paper clip and straighten the long leg. Look closely at the front of the CD drive, you should find a hole that's about the right size for the paper clip.
Carefully push the paper clip straight into the hole to release the catch. The drive door should open without too much pressure. If this doesn't work, the drive may be physically jammed shut. In that condition you need a hardware technician to fix it.
Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Stuck DVD tray


Turn off the computer and then use the paper clip to open the DVD tray.
If this doesn't work, then something is jaming and stopping the tray from opening. In this case, remove the DVD drive and dismantle the drive (ie. remove the metal cover to reveal the internal components and remove the CD ot DVD disc.
If nothing works the the DVD drive is faulty and needs to be replaced, these drives are not expensive.
