Dell :: Studio 1535 Won't Eject Disc

Mar 12, 2009

I've had a Dell Studio 1535 for a couple months now and have had no problems with it at all. In the past couple weeks I've been backing up my dvd's and have done them all so far succesfully until now.

I put a blank dvd disc into the slot loading drive and it sucked it in just like it does every time. When I click start to begin burning I get a message from the program that there is no disc in the drive.

I go into my computer and right click on the e: drive and select "explore" and it says "please insert a disc into the drive". So for some reason the blank dvd disc isn't being read and the computer doesn't acknowledge that there is a disc in the drive. I've tried many methods to eject the disc but all have failed........................................

Dell :: Studio 1535 Eject Button

Apr 15, 2009

Recently (as in, the past couple of months), my touch-sensitive media panel has been having some issues above and beyond the common complaints of the sticking eject button. Don't get me wrong, it still does that, but it adds something new to the mix:

More often than not, the eject button does not function at all, even after it unsticks itself.

Once I boot up, it sticks like normal until I boot into Windows, then attempts to eject about 10 times, and then stops. However, most of the time, it will no longer eject when pressed after this. Touching the button will cause it to illuminate like usual, but the DVD drive does not respond, regardless of whether there's a disk in the drive or not.

Sometimes, it works just fine for hours on end, ejecting every time I press the button. Sometimes it starts out working, but I'll come back to it half an hour later and it will no longer function.

Also worth noting is that when the capacitive eject button does not function, neither does the Fn+F10 keyboard shortcut.

I don't believe it's an issue with the DVD drive itself, as I can still eject via software while this happens, by going to My Computer, right clicking the drive and selecting "Eject" (although this occasionally causes an instant Blue Screen of Death).

However, I don't believe it's a touch panel issue either, because I've had the entire panel and ribbon cable replaced by Dell, and there was no difference. Also, all the other buttons (volume, playback controls) work perfectly when the eject is not sticking.

I also doubt it's a keyboard issue, because this started happening with my old keyboard, which I later replaced with my current backlit keyboard, but the Fn+F10 shortcut still does not work when the eject button does not work.

With all this, it left me to believe that the only thing it could be is software, so I completely reformatted the hard drive, left no partitions intact, not even the Dell Recovery partition, and re-installed Windows Vista 64-bit from scratch, but as luck would have it, it was doing exactly the same thing within 30 minutes of loading Windows for the first time.

I am really out of ideas here. I just can't think of anything else that could possibly be causing this, unless it's an issue with the DVD drive itself, which as I said earlier, is unlikely because ejecting via software works. Also, Dell refuses to replace the DVD drive anyway after I sent them basically this exact same message, because they "do not believe that there is a problem with the DVD drive".

Any ideas on why this might be happening? If it were just the regular sticky eject button, I would not be bothered as long as it worked as normal once it stopped sticking, but this is not the case.

Dell Studio 1737 :: Eject Soft Touch Button Don't Eject CD Whilst In Vista

Jan 12, 2009

I received my Dell Studio 1737 only a few hours ago and the immediate problem I've found is that Fn+F10 and the eject soft touch button don't eject a CD whilst in Vista.  They work fine in the BIOS or Diagnostics Utility but don't work when the machine boots up into Vista. 

BIOS is showing as A04 and the latest available on the Dell Drivers website is A02

Dell :: Studio 1745 Eject Button Not Working

Jan 1, 2010

1. Eject Button - I can't get either the eject button (near F12 key), or the touch eject button (that lights up) to eject any CD's. I have to go into My Computer, and right click ...and then eject it that way. Anyone know of a way to get the eject buttons to work? Should be able to use one of the eject buttons.

Note: I did try the holding the power button if for 30 seconds, and then rebooted. This didn't work for me.

2. Brightness - what FN + ? key adjusts the brightness of the screen? When the AC cord is plugged in, it's bright. When I disconnect it, it dims. I'd like to adjust the brightness to where the screen is the same brightness when it's on either AC or Battery.

I recently updated my OS to Windows 8 but the Eject key on the keyboard doesn't work. I thought the problem would be solved by installing QuickSet but still the same. All other media keys (change display, wifi, battery, brightness, mute, volume etc) are working perfectly except the eject button.

Dell :: Studio 1555 Eject Button No Longer Working?

Dec 10, 2009

I've had my Studio 1555 for awhile now, and all is has been pretty fine. However, I just noticed that my eject button for the disc drive has stopped working. I rarely use it, but I have used it before.

I upgraded my bios today from A06 to A08 and went to install my new bluetooth mouse, and the eject button just does not respond at all. I can eject the disc from my computer > right clicking the drive and selecting "eject" so it's definitely the button.

I'm not sure if this is related to the bios upgrade or something else.. Computer spec's are in my signature and I'm running Windows 7 Professional, clean install.

Dell Studio 15 :: Jammed Touch Sensitive Eject Button?

Aug 3, 2008

The touch sensitive eject button on my new Studio 15 laptop appears to be stuck on. When I reboot the laptop, the media control lights flash back and forth as normal. However, the CD drive immediately ejects and the eject button light stays permanently on. This all happens the second the laptop comes on - long before it boots into Vista. This makes me suspect a hardware rather than software issue.
 
None of the other touch sensitive media controls work.
 
I've tried cleaning the button, checking for dirt under and on the button and rebooting the laptop. I also rested it overnight.
 
I only got the laptop on Friday.

Dell :: Hot Temperatures Studio 1535

May 13, 2009

Well people in my country is summer, and from some days (4-5 days) my Studio 1535 has annoying for me HDD and GPU temperatures.

I will attach old picture and current picture and you can compare the temperatures.
Plus the fan stays on higher speed and it just don't want to turn itself back to normal light speed mode, I guess because high HDD and GPU temperatures.

GF 8600M GT- GPU:475 MHz

Both DDR2.

Dell :: Studio 1535 LCD Swap

Dec 11, 2008

I recently received my Dell Studio 1535 after my motherboard on my inspiron 9100 fried. The lcd screen on the 9100 is much better (1680x1050) than the 1535 (1280x800), also i hate glossy screens. After reading this thread

[apparently i cannot post links yet, just search "LCD Swap m1530" in this site and you'll get it right away.]

I was hopeful that i would be able to swap out the 1535 screen and put in the screen from the 9100. I got both successfully removed, but kinda got stuck with the inverters and all that stuff, and got scared because i don't want to break anything. The thing that confused me the most was that the 1535 lcd plugged TWO things (power i think?) directly into the inverter, whereas the 9100 has only 1 thing that plugs directly into its inverter. It seems pretty clear that the original inverter has to be the one the computer uses based on all my googling of this subject, but how can i do that if it doesn't plug into the inverter the same way? can someone please offer me some help in this? i would have like to have contacted the original poster of the thread i linked, but of course, no contact information was available in his profile I may post pictures if i decide to take it all apart again. At the very least, can someone confirm or deny that it would be possible to make this swap? i will be very disappointed if i'm stuck with this low res screen forever...

Dell :: Dismay With Studio 1535

May 18, 2009

I am just not satisified with this laptop. I paid 1200 euro at the time, and in return got a somewhat unstable system. Windows had this bad habit of crashing often, and not shutting down correctly, until I upgraded to Vista 64-Bit.

I am although, happy with the 4GB of RAM, and graphics, you get what you pay for with them, although the Graphics card is the main reason I am going to purchase a new laptop as my gaming is going to have to go mobile in boarding school soon.

Anyway, the silver casing I bought my laptop with is just unsatifactory. I had it sent back twice for cracked lid hinges, both sides. Now this is the third lid casing I have had, seems to be okay, hinges haven't buckled yet, but the plastic is still flimsy, cheap and very very badly painted. I have had this new lid on for 2 weeks now and the paint is already starting to scratch and peel off above the LCD, and is damaged and quite scratched on the palm rest, although that is to be expected.

I have had a problem with the sound twice. It randomly decides not to play through the speakers, unless I apple pressure to the bottom left of the laptop with my left palm. Got the motherboard replaced twice yet this has only been improved but not prevented.

Sounds like a loose connection or bad fitting issue to me.

Lastly, the media keys above the keyboard, ALWAYS freeze. The keys have been replaced twice to, but still it has not been fixed. Every time I turn on the laptop, whether booting into Vista 64-Bit or XP Professional, it happens. Eventually it resolves itself, but is a major annoyance, especially when it decides it doesn't want to eject my disc, and freezes up as a result when I try to eject it by right clicking "My Computer".

Oh, and to top it all off, the keys on the keyboard tend to flick upwards and appear to almost break off, I had a problem with my "K" key coming half loose once.. Not re-assuring.

Sorry to be a pessimist. Just expressing my opinions, not forcing them upon you. Similar stories or opinions are welcome to be posted in this forum. Also, I do not know, but have these problems been resolved in the 1555?

Dell :: Studio 1535 Warranty

Mar 28, 2009

I am having MAJOR issues with my Studio 1535 and I could use some input!

About two months ago, the fan kicked on at HIGH speed as soon as I pressed the power button to boot up. It continued to run on HIGH indefinitely, unless I lifted one of the rear corners a bit off the desk. Then the fan would stop instantly until I lowered the edge back down to the desk surface.

I've spoken with a few other 1535 owners who've had the same issue. Motherboard flex seems to be the culprit and it (the system/mother board) needs to be replaced.

I sent it in for warranty repair the first time with a detailed explanation of the problem. I also detailed a problem I was having with the keyboard that needed to be fixed. They replaced the keyboard and didn't address the fan issue. Immediately out of the box, I powered it up and the fan instantly kicked on HIGH, too.

I sent it back a second time with a detailed explanation again (after a long chat with tech support). They replaced the fan itself. I got it back yesterday and as soon as I hit power, the fan kicked in at HIGH speed. Making matters WORSE, the system gave me an error during the boot sequence that it didn't recognize and couldn't charge the battery! It allowed me to ESC out of the error and booted to my desktop. That's when I realized the Touchpad wouldn't work at all! I had to connect a wireless mouse via USB to do ANYTHING!

To add insult to injury, there's an inch-long scratch on the Midnight Blue lid that wasn't there the last time I sent it back!

So now, I've got the FAN/motherboard issue, some sort of Battery problem AND the Touchpad doesn't work! The scratch is the least of my worries...

Dell :: Studio 1535 Won't Start

Mar 15, 2009

Right now I'm posting this from a friend's netbook, for the record.

So, this is something of an emergency. My Studio 1535, as the title says, is not starting. When I first plug in the power cord, the small white light turns on for just a second and then turns off again.

Normally it stays on while plugged in.

When I press the power button, the white ring of light around the button turns on like normal, and the media buttons flash in sequence, just like a normal boot.

Unfortunately, this is where it stops going as usual.
