Having problems with your HP Pavilion DV5234US Notebook Laptop ?

Stuck DVD tray

\015 The DVD tray is stuck shut on my HP laptop. When I press the manual eject button, a light goes on, the drive makes noises, but the DVD tray does not open. I have tried sticking a paper clip into the hole in the door, but that has not helped. This tray is really stuck fast. I have also tried banging the tray, and even prying the tray gently, but with no luck. Since these method do not work, are there any other methods I can try?\015

Answers :

Turn off the computer and then use the paper clip to open the DVD tray.
\015\012If 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.
\015\012If nothing works the the DVD drive is faulty and needs to be replaced, these drives are not expensive.
