How To Fix A Stuck CD Tray




What do you think about this video?

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

Johnny Samara: This is a great insight into the world of cd drives and rubber bands. People would be helpless without them. Even the most expensive record player would be useless to see what's on a cd rom. And there's nothing like small rubber bands to help prevent premature ejaculation. I thank you so f'n much for this video, Techie G! 

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.

iLovePickIes: CUT YOUR NAILS YOU NASTY freak

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.
