What do I need to open a stuck DVD ?
If your DVD tray is stuck, it is very easy to open it with the following materials that you can find at home:
- A clip.
- Safety pin.
- A sewing needle.
- A SIM card extractor.
Of all of them, the most advisable is the clip , if possible avoid pointed objects such as sewing needles or safety pins. However if your DVD player tray is stuck and you don’t have a paperclip handy you can carefully use one of the aforementioned items.
