    I push the button to open it and it remains closed, but makes the click sound like it is trying to open. Help. We have dusted out the unit with an air compressor, but have not actually touched the DVD.

This is a computer drive right?

Is it still covered by warranty - if it is let the repair guys deal with contact the maker or your dealer for warranty service, should be free.

if the drive is out of warranty you can safely remove the drive from your computer, unscrew the generally 4 screws in the bottom, take the drive apart, remove the cd / dvd and see what is blocking the tray from opening. By the way does the tray try to open at all?

How do i unfreez my ipod other than putting it in rice and the sun


Some versions of ipods have a tiny hole in them that you can push the end of a straightened out paper clip into. If yours has a tiny hole you could try this method. Push the paper clip end into the hole and gently push it for about 10 seconds.

Cd tray eject button doesn t work - paper clip trick doesn't help


the "paper clip trick" isn't a trick. It is a MANUAL way to open the door far enough to pull it open and remove the contents. Straighten out the clip. Place it through the tiny hole just above the eject button. Be sure to push it straight in. When you feel resistance, push HARD. the door should open about a halt inch and allow you pull it all the open. It will not open automatically from a paper clip.

Cd drive in my acer aspire x1700 doesn't open


You are going to need a paper clip. Look fo a small hole next to the switch. straighten the paper clip and put it in the hole in the center. carefully push to activate the mechansium to open the door. Then you can troubleshoot the door. Turn off the computer then pull the power cord from it. Open the computer case find the power cable to the cdrom/dvdcdrw and push it in to make sure you have good connection. If it still doesn't work after this then you can get a new drive for less than $30.00 (usd)

Hope this helps,
Terry

How much do you charge?


IF you are trying to remove a CD from a player that doesn't open naturally, there is usually a small hole into which a straightened paper clip can be inserted to manually open the "drawer". Don't get carried away with the paper clip, and just a little, single poke should do it into the small hole about the size of the diameter of the wire - not somewhere else.

Cd stuck on cd drive in Dell


If the Cd drive is not ejecting, try going into My Computer, and right clicking the Drive and selecting "Eject". If that doesn't work, then take a paper clip (or any other piece of wire that small, which does not have a sharp end) and examine your CD/DVD drive. There should be a little paperclip sized hole, this is usually next to the Eject button. Slowly push the paperclip into the hole, until you feel that you have pressed something, and then remove it. The drive should eject. This should work regardless of whether the computer is on or off.

The screen says "Docked, please wait". It says


When this happened to me with my Zez I was able to reset it by pushing the reset button (located in a little hole next to the dock on the bottom of the unit) with a straightened paper clip or other small object capable of fitting in the hole for a few seconds until the unit fully resets.
If that doesn't work you can try putting the unit in to recovery mode to reset it by doing this:
  1. Detach the Zen Sleek player from your computer, and ensure that the unit off.
  2. Connect the power supply to the player (Optional, unless the battery is very low).
  3. Hold down the Play/Pause button, and then insert a paper clip into the Reset hole underneath your player, beside the data/power connector. reset_sleek.jpg
  4. Remove the paper clip from the Reset hole. The Rescue Mode screen will then appear.
  5. After the recovery mode has started, release the Play/Pause button

DVD disc stuck?Press Eject, door won't open. disc spins up loads, then flashes fail


Find a paper clip. Unbend the outside piece of wire so you have a 1 inch or so pice sticking out.

On the front of the DVD, look for a hole about the size of the paper clip. Stick the long piece you bent out into the hole and push slowly but firmly until the tray just barely pops out. Slowly pull the tray the rest of the way out and remove the disc.

I've seen this caused by putting a second dvd/cd on top of one already in the tray, actually fairly common when you cant see the dvd drive tray from the top.
