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.

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.

    Cd/dvd tray will not open on compaq desktop


    Hello there, I am the computer technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

    Welcome to Fixya, Paul Stanford.

    Here is what needs to be done if the DVD drive is a normal 5.25" (inch) desktop drive.

    On the front of the drive, below the tray front cover is a little hole.
    This hole is the key to opening your DVD drive.

    Bend a paper clip, so that you get a long length, about 2" (inches) long. Now push the paper clip into the hole and your DVD drive tray will open.

    Caution: Do this when your computer is off and be sure NOT to use the LED hole!

    Take care!

    Stuck dvd tray


    There are many ways to eject a DVD. Try this.

    Shut down the computer (complete power off, not restart)
    Hold down the left button (Apple mouse?)
    Push the power button
    Keep holding the mouse button down until it either ejects or the grey pinwheel appears. (It's not an instant process)

    Usually, eject/F12 will open the drive up. If that does not work try.
    Open terminal and use the command "drutil tray eject"

    You can also try command-option O + F and type"eject cd"
    If none of this works your drive may be bad or the power cord is loose. You will need to open it up or seek professional service.

    Stuck DVD tray


    Turn off the computer and then use the paper clip to open the DVD tray.
    If this doesn't work, then something is jaming and stopping the tray from opening. In this case, remove the DVD drive and dismantle the drive (ie. remove the metal cover to reveal the internal components and remove the CD ot DVD disc.
    If nothing works the the DVD drive is faulty and needs to be replaced, these drives are not expensive.

    The DVD tray doesnt eject


    either it is the ribbon wire, the motor that ejects the tray or the belt that connect the tray and motor is the problem. In case the above three are fine, replace the drive as the sparking might kill your moterboard.
