Dvd eject not working



[qanda]This thread is about the Sony DRU-840A. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hello,

I have a Sony Vaio desktop RA810G. When I press the dvd drive’s eject button on the front panel of the cpu, it makes a clicking sound as if it is trying to eject, but the drive door never opens.

After trying various troubleshooting ideas, I reverted to the tried and true method of banging on top of the cpu after pressing the eject button and it works, the drive ejects.

However, I got tired of using this method and bought a new dvd drive thinking the problem was with my old drive. Now I have the same problem with the new drive as well, it won’t eject if I press the button or if I right click the dvd icon and press eject that way. It simply keeps making the clicking sound as if it is trying to eject, but won’t.

Any suggestions?


Hi and Welcome,

since the new drive does the same, I guess, it is the drive cover of your computer case that blocks the tray from ejecting.
