Faced with a stuck dvd drive button I need to find out how to remove the whole dvd drive unit from the HP Pavillion dc6500 laptop.
I scoured the net and found this wonderful and helpful website filled with laptop tips!
the instructions stated to remove the single screw holding the dvd drive and all you have to do is pull it out gently.
So after I removed the dvd drive pushed the plastic tabs (CAREFULLY!) that holds the front cover of the dvd drive and it released the stucked button.
Then just put everything back together and you are done!
