Retrieve disc from Sony Vaio VGC-JS1E

  twitcher 21:21 01 Sep 09

A friend of mine has a Sony Vaio VGC-JS1E all-in one computer with a vertical side slot DVD/RW drive. Unfortunately, when inserting a DVD it didn’t click properly into the drive and fell into the inner computer frame. Does anybody know how to retrieve the disc?

There is normally a small pin-hole in the front of CD drives, intentionally for the use of inserting a straightened paper-clip to open the drives in an emergency. Perhaps your friend could use the same tactic after placing the Unit on its side?

I once did something similar for a friend, at the same time I also needed to give the Unit a bit of a shake, to successfully dislodge the disc.

Hmm, having had a look at the machine via Google, it is not quite what I expected, but my suggestion could still work - though as I understand it, not a computer frame as such, more of a Monitor frame, so extra care would need to be taken.

Many thanks, I'll pass your advice on to my friend when I see him later this week. If it succeeds I'll let you know.
