    I am having the same problem. I can rap the top of the case with a hard object (gently) and the tray will extend. It may work for several times then hang again. It appears to be a mechanical binding problem with the door itself binding Any suggestions? I did go into the unit and loosen the mounting screws and that seemed to help for a while.

(After return from holidays) the clamp/magnet that hold the disk stick to it.
Remove the top cover of the unit (you loose your warranty). From behind the dvd driver introduce gently a flat tool above the disk and loose the clamp from the disk.

Open the unit and remove the DVD manually. The magnet that holds the DVD in place is stuck to the top cover.

CD-ROM, DVD, or other disc tray not opening Locking device or software installed First, verify no locking software installed that prevents the tray from opening. If you are unsure, reboot the computer and as it is booting up, eject the tray. If the tray can eject as it is booting, but stops working after loading your operating system, something is being loaded that is preventing the drive tray from opening. Programs used to burn CDs are a common culprit.
Bad eject button If you are running Microsoft Windows, open My computer, right-click the disc drive icon and choose the option to eject. If this ejects your CD-ROM drive tray, the button on the disc drive is defective, and it is recommended that the drive be replaced.
No power to computer or disc drive If you have recently installed a new optical drive or you have moved the computer, the power cable to the CD-ROM may have become loose or disconnected. Reseat the power cable to make sure this is not the problem.
CD stuck within drive If you suspect that a CD may be stuck within the drive, the tray needs to be ejected manually. Look for the small manual eject hole that ( not the head phone jack) located on the front of the drive. Unwind a paper clip and place one end of the paper clip into the hole to eject the CD-ROM tray.

If CD-ROM tray opens part of the way, pull it gently to see if you can get it to open fully. If it cannot be opened any further, it is likely that the gears within the CD-ROM drive have become damaged or dislodged. But usually, a stuck CD is blocking the way.

Caution: If you are able to open the CD-ROM drive using a paper clip, we do not recommend continuing to do so. This is meant to be used as a temporary solution; the drive should be replaced.

What to do if CD or DVD stuck in drive? Note: This document is for disc drives with a disc in the drive that prevents the tray from opening. See our CD-ROM, DVD, or other disc tray not opening document, if the tray is not opening at all or doesn't seem to be getting power.
If the CD or DVD is not set into the disc tray correctly, it could be sticking up above the surface of the tray, causing it to get stuck with then tray tries to open. In this case, it may be possible gently shake the computer and move the CD or DVD into the correct place in the tray, allowing the drive to open. However, use caution when doing this, as you do not want to shake the computer too much, or you could damage other components.
If this is a desktop computer, you can prevent damage to the computer by opening the computer and removing the disc drive in order to shake or rotate the drive. When the drive is out of the computer, you can manually release the tray by inserting a paperclip into the manual eject hole.

cdrom.jpg
In the case of a laptop computer or a slot load disc drive, since the CD or DVD does not sit in a tray, it cannot be shaken in order to adjust the disc. If the disc is visible you may be able to move the disc a bit by hand, enough to allow the drive to eject the disc. Again, be careful in doing so, as you could damage the disc or drive in the process.
If you're still unable to get the disc out of the drive after following the above steps, it may be a damaged drive and should be replaced. If the disc in the drive is an important disc and you believe the drive is bad, the drive can be disassembled in order to remove the disc. In the case of a laptop or computer with a slot load disc drive, the computer needs to be serviced in order for the drive the be replaced and the disc to be removed.

How to eject disc from hp envy 14

There are two ways to open the CD 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 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 disc.
If you continue having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

Disc is stuck in console

There's a trick I've seen which doesn't require opening up the console but perhaps does not work on all consoles:

Perform a 'ps3 fan test'
-Turn off your system with the off/on button and then on the back.
-Hold the eject button and turn on the back switch.
-The fan test will start now gently keep tapping the eject button while the fan test continues.

Hopefully your disk will slide out.

The other option is to send your console to sony or open up the console yourself which will void your warranty by removing the side sticker, but it does not take long to complete and only requires 3 different screwdrivers. There are many tutorials you can follow giving detailed instructions on how to do it. Good luck!

Disc will not eject

When you press the eject button do you hear the loading motor ? if yes! the loading belt is stretched or come apart preventing the tray from opening. To get the disc out is not an easy task, but one trick you can try is get a flat plastic tool "the wider the better" put it in the crevice on the top side of the door and as you pull "gently" press the eject repeatedly, If you are lucky it may pop open, if not a technician would be the next step.

I have a jeep liberty that just had a new battery put in and now the cd changer won't work. any suggestions

Alternately, try opening the CD changer door, ejecting the CD carrier and look for a small reset button below the opening. Press this with the tip of a pen and hold it for 10 seconds, then turn the radio/CD on again.

CD/DVD drive stuck CLOSED and NO pin hole

Use my computer and select the drive (eg drive E:). From pull down menu "File" select "eject". While the disk door attempts to open (hear slight movement of tray) massage the door with your fingers. This is done by smoothing out the across front door panel with your finger tips and pushing in and releasing pressure from door. Door should slide open partially and close again. Repeat. The eject button nearside the disc tray doesn't seem to work as well as selecting "File" and "Eject" from the menu. Something to do with the door cycle is less with the direct eject button.
