If you have see your CD/DVD player a bit carefully you will see a very tiny hole below your CD/DVD disc tray either on right side or left side depending upon your CD/DVD manufacturer.

Here are the steps to safely eject CD/DVD manually:

1. Turn the Power to OFF.

2. Poke a fine-tipped object (such as a straightened heavy duty paper clip) into the small hole (as mentioned above, see image also). The front door will pop open and the disk tray will come partway out.

3. Pull the front door to open it all the way, the grip the disk tray between thumb and forefinger ( if you cannot get a good grip on the disc tray with your fingers, use a steel binder clip or spring clamp to pull it out) and gently pull it straight out.
