Samsung Dvd Drive - Opens Then Closes Quickly
Posted 01 June 2006 - 02:46 AM
My sammy drive started closing as soon as it reaches the full open position as of late. Reads and seems to spin up discs fine.
Has anyone run across this or heard of a resolution?

Check to see if anything is obstructing its path from opening all the way. If it it senses its not opening all the way it will close, almost like your pushing the tray in gently.
Yea, I thought that might be it. It comes open and stays there for about 1 second and then closes. I checked the rails and did not find anything. I did notice, however, the case was full of bits of trash and junk. I am cleaning it all out now. We will see what happends. Thanks.

Heck, it might even be the P/E board, a trace to the eject pushbutton switch might be messed up. Does it do this on a different box?
Yea... like Creg said, I tried another box to test that potential problem.

There I go opening my mouth again. Mus be tired.
Creg, me too. I am hoping for the best. Those Sammys are about as good as they come. I will report back. I guess it is a good thing nobody has came back with. "Ohh, yea, that happends all the time... blah blah"

yeah go at it with the air, just do it in an open space unless you like seeing little sparkly things and ringing in your ears... that stuff makes you weird. so yeah, get some fresh air
