Question about PC Desktops
On most CD players and writers a small hole only big enough for a very small pointed object is located usually on the right side and slightly below the tray. Straighten out a paper clip and put that into the hole and press until you find some small resistence. Do not overpress but do press until you feel a small click. Generally the tray will open at that stage. Suggest you remove whatever object or media is located in the tray at the point and reboot the computer. Hopefully the tray will then operate on its own as it should but it is possibly that the drive mechanism for the tray is dead. Test before replacing the drive. The above procedure should only be done with power ' not applied ' to the unit since it may be possible to cause an electrical short on the drive using a metal paper clip.
