Dvdrom Spindle - Over-magnetized?
Posted 01 December 2005 - 11:29 PM
If I pull up on the lid of the dvdrom drive just slightly, the tray will open. It seems as though either the spindle itself or the plastic piece on the lid may have become over-magnetized and it seems it's more difficult to separate the two now. Just a guess - as it's kind of hard to prove, but I can't seem to think what else may be causing this (maybe a loose drive belt?).
Any ideas or suggestions?

themikesssta - I'll give that a whirl and see if it helps.
henno - I've cleaned & lubed the rails and such (pretty much anything that moves), but it didn't help. Maybe I'll try swapping the belt with another one (if I've got one in a spare drive). I could tell if the belt was slipping or not - as the tray is in the way. I don't think there's an easy way to remove the tray on the Samsung drives is there?
