Recently I got the "Three Red Lights" error and performed the RBJtech method of replacing the X clamps.
The repair worked woderfully and I played it for about 2 weeks.
During that two weeks I left the case open while waiting for the Talismoon replacement fan that I ordered (yeah it took forever). I just got the fans today and popped them in. I put the case back together and turned it on. It appeared fine for a while, then LEDs #1 and #3 came on indicating overheating. I shut it off and investigated. I found that the fan cooling the CPU had been obstructed and was not spinning. I fixed it and turned it back on.
It did not overheat again, but now the problem is the DVD tray will not open at all. I can open it manually, but it will not open or close on its own power or read a disc.
Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated
