Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop Computer ?

Dvd tray on Dell Inspiron 530 hard drive not opening. The dvd in the tray is not loose because the program runs so it's not the dvd preventing the opening process. The "door" tries to open and when I manually open it the tray comes "out" about an 1/8" but will not come out. Please help.

There might be somthing inside? If not there somthing jamming the geers. Just buy a new one, it's really the best way to go and there cheep. You'll need to know one thing befor you order the unit. Take the side coveer off and look and see if the unit hase ribbon cable or a Sata cable hook up.

From what it sounds like.... its a gear problem. see, inside your dvd drive, there are a set of gears, and a little "rubber band" that opens and closes the dvd drive. either A). a gear has stripped itself(or broken) or b.) that "rubber band" has broke, and has gotten itself stuck(probably in the gears). Good luck, and i hope that it wasn't an important disk.
