2x Ms25's Semi Bricked
Posted 12 November 2008 - 10:26 PM
I have some how managed to semi brick 2 ms25 drives. They won't eject, although everything else seems ok, they play originals and backups fine when I force the tray open with a paperclip. The drives also seems to open ok if they have a disc inserted but won't open if there is no disc in the drive.
I've never seen anything like this before and I've flashed most types of drives before with no ploblems including ms25's.
I've tried reflashing and restoring them with mtkflash and dosflash automode but still the same problem.
Is there anyway I can fix these drives?

one Way is to take out the rubber band that opens the tray and wash it With soap water and put it back in and if that helps.

about an inch in and keep flicking it to the right it usualy opens
what i do is drop the drive belt in boiling water for about a minute
then clean the wheels it fits round with alchohol and a cotton bud
this usualy does the trick
also i have noticed that if you keep a game in the drive it opens no problems

It just seemed such a coincidence that it started happenning after I flashed them but tbh the sugestion about the rubber belt makes more sense.

I took the rubber belt out cleaned it and the spindles with some alcohol, then put the rubber belt back in and the tray opens every time now with or without a disc inserted.
And here I was thinking it had something to do with me flashing the drives, lol. Did give me quite a scare though.
