How To Fix A Stuck CD Tray




What do you think about this video?

aditya narayan: Handy, and really gud video. But won't it work only on those big individual-unit drives? What to do if my laptop's drive is not ejecting? Dismantle the whole laptop, then fix the drive and then find out that the laptop is dead now and basically incur a bill that runs into tens of thousands?

Lord Creepypasta: Pin won't open my tray :( Help please?

PercivalGull1: I had the same problem with my Audiosonic DVD player and replaced the small belt. However the problem remained. I tracked it down to the small black pressure switch that that is supposed to cut off the power to the drawer motor. It was not working so I applied some WD40 to the switch and the drawer now works perfectly.

filletboy: That WORKED like a charm. I was lucky to find a rubber band in my junk drawer and it works great. I managed to put it on just by opening the drive and getting in. THANKS Guy

Slecter: i have this probelm but with my xbox. any chance you could do one for the xbox 360?

frvo: Please man!! Cut your fingernails!!!

iAmmyyx3: what should i do if the rom doesnt slide out? cant open the front

Rohan Rao: awesome work dude , saved me around 200-300.Rs to repair it by some other hardware shops

alkoreah: thank you that was very helpfull

HeCTiiC Aurora: can you help me fix my laptop CD tray it wont go in i can still move it but it doesent go fully in

Oni64: worked, does the drive also have make more noise now?

King Prada: u did not teach me crap!!!!!!!!

Guy Techie: Sorry. I'll fire my camera crew.

Anshul Ahuja: i had a small pin and i tried with it..now the situation is that the tray opened but the pin got stuck inside due to which the tray doesnt close now. it opens automatically when i push it back.. pleaseeee plaeseee pleaseee help me with what to do next

Dohn Joe: Unless the old rubber belt is ruptured, you can reuse it as follows: - clean it with alcohol - clean both plastic wheel grooves with alcohol - spray some WD40 on belt and rub it for a minute between fingers - dry belt with a paper towel then clean it again with alcohol You got now a better than new belt that will never dry again.

Guy Techie: Most DVD players have the same mechanism to eject the tray, but you'll never know until you open them up. Some use a cork screw to open and close the drawer.

sigbunch: hello guy. I have a bose321 and the tray will not come out. It has a cd in it and there is no button to push to release the tray. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Susan Crites: Thanks for this great suggestion! I never would have thought of this!

Gordon Freeman: i have the same drive.

Wendy St. Christopher: I love that it sounds like you recorded this while at work! :-)

roycoolguy: Get to the freaking point !

J'khari Wilson: htf do i even pull it out?

j0s3phPS3: thank you sooo much .appreciate it

ffuentese: Thank you. I've got two CD drives with similar issues, one of them opens just a little bit outside and I have to pull the tray out to make it work. When a disk has to be inserted the tray gets stuck in the same point and I have to pull so it can read the disk.

nidumite: Cheers a great help , thanks

Mike Harman: This was very helpful. I was able to reach the rubber belt just by opening the drawer and using needle-nose pliers to lift it off the plastic wheel and drive pulley. Then I used a Q-tip with grain alcohol to clean the pulley, wheel and belt. With everything cleaned up, I put the old belt back in and it worked like new. Then I did the second DVD drive and got the same results.

Guy Techie: @Oni64 It shouldn't make any more noise than it used to

GoophyOne: Thank you SO much for this! You are pretty awesome to share this with us!

CtlAltShift: Just spent hours first getting spare PC PSU to work as bench PSU (google it) and greasing the CD drive innards to try and make it open properly - which it didn't - then googled for this Tip - thanks - now it works using tiny home jam-cover band almost exactly right size! Haven't tested in PC yet...

FalconXYGTHO: @enzo1st You would be suprised how handy long nails can be while tinkering with things

HardcoreMeez69: soo how to i get the paperclip to fit in the pickle try!? i cant take my router apart and i cant find any way to pribe it open :( i really need help on this

ionescu: i prefer to use a magnet or a tweezer

badtmaru: No need to find a new rubber band. You can shrink the old rubber band by using a hair dryer to blow hot air on it. 100% working guaranteed

Niki de Brun: Great! now if only I can find the right rubber band, I'm looking at my computer cable stuff :)

0zfer: Sometimes the issue with pc drives is the actual track breaks in the closed position so there is no track for it to engage on.

ClubGuiatarHero: I dont have the emergency hole >.> i have an acer aspire X1200

caboose torres: Screw ppl with the Xbox fix Seriously Now I have to waste about 150$ Cuz of this damn videos Thanks ladys

Guy Techie: @Lilylibra Haha, thanks for that. :)

SURFER7X: @badtmaru I tried this out on my DVD drive and it worked. 100%

2sexxyfaya: thanks,is that for regular dvd players that u hook up to tvs too?

ThePunisherish: lol

Jaime Estevez: These players use a computer driver and bose design does not allow you to see it, you have to open and disassemble so you can see, is exactly like the computer, with a tiny hole

emnoptcrusier: cut your nails

Stamp: what do you do if it is not reading the disc? for a pc?

rachidzenda: my dvd drive is a freaking fail i trayed it dont want to open i'll throw and get a freaking new one

barrad0s: tx man, i fix computers on the side, and this worked perfectly for me.

James Miller: Thanks for tip.
