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.

Cant open my cd player on my acer pc


On most cd/dvd players there is a small hole below the tray on desktop players and on the tray on laptops. Take a paper clip and carefully push thru the hole. This should release the cd tray.

Replace cd player


There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

Player will not play a loaded CD and No CD message comes up Also CD drawer opens and shuts on it`s own !!!


the tray opening by itself could be a faulty limit switch on the tray mechanism

the switch tells the system if the tray has reached the open or closed position.

if it closes then opens itself then this is the most likely

check that first

could be closing then opening without actually loading due to the switch

you will need to open it up to find the switches

usually at the bottom front were the tray goes in

HOW DO i GET CD TO EJECT? WHAT DO I HIT?


There is an eject button on the drive tray, when the notebook is powered up then press this button to open the tray.
If it still does not open then straighten a paper clip and insert it into the pin hole in the tray and push it in gently until the tray pop out, you can then pull the tray fully out to get at the CD.

I have a CDX-602 CD Player. I was on a gig the other night I placed a cd in the tray. I pressed the button to close the tray and a cord was wedged so that the tray would not close. Naturally the tray...


The gears have probably come out of sync, meaning the tray is riding on the limit switch. You need to remove the deck, dismantle and re-sync the drawer mech. Check the limit switch isnt bent, it's quite flimsy

Cd tray will not open


This might not be the solution you're looking for, but aside from the obvious, "Then get a new CD player," :) if you have something in there that you need to get out, every computer CD player has a very tiny hole somewhere on the front. If you straighten out a paper clip you should be able to manually open the CD tray by sticking the paper clip in that tiny hole and giving it a little "push" until the tray pops out enough to where you can just pull it the rest of the way out with your hand and salvage the CD.

Either way, good luck!

Nakamichi MB-2 CD Player tray sticks


It sounds like the belt that opens the try is getting bad and beginning to slip, a common problem on CD players like this. You should be able to find a replacement belt online.

CD tray got knocked off track


You can try to fix mechanics by takin apart cd, remove tray and try open/close operation WITHOUT tray. Leave it as OPEN, then try to place tray back in fully open position, but be careful, you have to pres OPEN and then unplug it from outlet to avoid electric shock risk. BE CAREFUL!!!
