Help please! W7 DVD Player Won't open

This problem happened twice. First is that, this happened to be like this, it does not open but a yellow light does shows up. I click a small circle on it and it does opened.

But now, it's light does not shows up, and again it WON'T OPEN up. I tried the same thing, I click the small circle on it but still it diddn't solve the problem. What should I do?

sounds like is is trying to physically open it and its motor is shot or stuck you need to stick a paperclip into the hole like shown in the pic below. turn the computer off first.

That is a good tip form RCV but mate they are so cheap why don't you just replace it because I can assure you if you open it up unless you are some sort of genius you will not be able to repair it.

PS On second thoughts you do mean the hardware and not the program!! If you want anymore help mate those system specs please!

Are you trying to open the device using Windows 7 or are you trying to open the device by using the button on the device?

Hmm Layback mate it would be nice to know if it is the hardware or the program as the query is a little ambiguous really. Some systems specs would be the thing I would like to see.
I am just wondering that because the OP says W7 DVD player and that could mean either??

sounds to me like hardware since the way the lights he/she are talking about are responding.
