Hi, Since the warranty period has expired I will assume that the CD/RW has been in use for some time. Normally a small belt powered by a motor drives a gear that slides the tray out. Sometimes this belt is loose, warped or plain cut. Replacing the belt should solve the problem. You have to open the CD and it is near the front just below the tray. In other instances, the grease on the toothed railing at the sides and/or underneath the tray gets gummed up, cleaning and repacking with new light grease should take care of that. Rarely (but still does happen), the motor itself burns up and replacement (if you can get the part) is in order. An interim fix is to push a small straightened metal paperclip at a small hole below the tray cover/lip and slightly push till the tray partially opens. You can then manually pull it out. Hope this be of some help/idea to you. Good luck and kind regards.

    Based on your recent post/description "Yes yaar , I too tried that also , I opened and refixed everything but still problem is there".

    Which of the above did you try?

    Since you tried "?":
    1. was there a B+ supply to the eject motor when you press the eject button?
    2. were you able to determine if there is continuity to the motor windings?
    3. on belt replacement, was the motor (driving) pulley and the driven pulley rotating with ease and can it support the load of the tray?
    4. did you check the eject button for momentary on when pressed?
    5. is the CD getting +5 and +12 VDC supply?
    6. on motor replacement, is it an exact replacement, same torque, same rpm?
    7. are there any ICs on the PCB that heats up when power is applied?
    8. pushing through the pin hole, was the tray moving out with relative ease or do you have to push a little harder?

    With all of the above considerations, perhaps it will be to your advantage to simply replace the drive. Not only is it time consuming, you have to be very familiar with digital electronics to fully diagnose where the problem lies as well as the availability of a schematic diagram, knowledge on the use of a soldering iron, VOM.

    As posted earlier, since the warranty has expired one can only assume that quite some time have lapsed since purchase. Price wise, I believe that the cost of a new CD/RW far outweighs the trouble, time and expense repairing an old unit.

    ahh, we're at least getting somewhere; it works without the cover.

    Then sir, I believe it is a simple case of the cover obstructing something. You have to check the flatness of the casing/cover. Lay it on a glass table and closely observed it the cover is warped, bended, or the sides not true 90degrees. Sometimes this cover has a plastic spindle that matches/mates with the center motor. Normally it is spring loaded to push down on the disc when sandwiched by a lever that moves up and brings the laser/eye bed. At other times, it is magnetic. If they extend to much down then they will obstruct the CD from ejecting, Same as a warped casing, it will not be aligned to the chassis of the tray/assy and also obstruct eject.

    Since you have pointed that the eject electronics work (when no cover), it is a matter of going back inside again and focusing on the cover and where it touches the CD tray assy.

    Anxiously awaiting your next post.

Sony CD-RW CRX320EE is not ejecting...what to do..I think its jammed..

Take a paperclip, find a small hole in the front of the drive, and push the paperclip into the hole. The CD drive should eject. If it does not, it is time first of all for a new one anyway, but you may have to disassemble the drive to grab the CD.

DVD/CD-RW-Device does not read any CD'Rs.

The drive must have "died".

If the computer is still under warranty, contact Toshiba, and get it repaired.

If the warranty has expired, take the computer to a qualified technician, who will remove the dead unit, install a new drive, and reassemble the computer.
Cost will be about $60 for "one-hour-labour", plus the cost of the new drive.

My sony cd-rw crx320ee does not eject but it can read cds

When you say "not eject", I'm assuming you have tried ejecting from a physical button on the drive as well as selecting eject in Windows Explorer. If not, give it a try. If still a problem, note a small hole in the drive. Open a paper clip and gently place one end in the drive. The drive should open. Hope that helps.

Dvd/cd-rw combo does not record

You may have what is called a combo can play and burn cds but can only play dvds, not burn them. Look at the face plate on the drive and see what is written on it. If it has the following:
Recordable Drive = CD Burner
DVD = DVD Player
RW & DVD = DVD Burner

If recordable drive and DVD is on the drive but no RW, chances are its a combo drive. Keep us posted.

Cd-rw/dvd drive broke a computer game disk. got all the pieces out but now computer does not recognize drive and drive wont close. green light doesnt come on. Its a cd-rw/dvd drive ts-h493. what do i do?

This is due to the cracked disc is damage the sensor inside your cd-rw/dvd drive. If still under waranty, you can send it to warranty claim. If it's over warranty, then you have to replace with a new one.


Try rebooting your computer. I have a similar desktop and sometimes after a period of use the drive seems to power down - if I shut down and start up again it seems to work again.

If this doesn't solve the problem, check the connections inside the computer to make sure the drive has the data cable and power cable connected securely.

If you bought the Inspiron 3 days ago, contact Dell for warranty service and a replacement. If you just bought the drive itself 3 days ago, take it back or return it to the retailer you bought it from for a replacement.

Dvd drive

Sounds like you purchased a SATA drive when you need a IDE drive...or vise versa. Check the box. If that's the case, just exchange the drive for the proper one.

I have a Toshiba CD-RW drive that keeps ejecting everytime a put a disc in, why
