pot tweaking is a waste of time
you killed the laser by pot tweaking it
if both drives had open tray why in gods name did you try and swap lasers? pointless much?
the motors are unaffected by all of this - what you see is the classic symptom of when a laser is dead, the motor only spins for a second.
if the drive doesnt detect a disc, it does not spin the motor after the first pulse.
also a waste to buy a whole new drive when a new laser would have completely fixed the issues.
open tray = laser is dead.
Sorry that i wasnt clearer when I said
"However when i tried to swap the lasers something strange started happening.
First off the new lasers didnt fix the open tray although you could hear the drive was spinning much better than before."
I should have just typed, I fitted a brand spanking new laser and it did not work so i adjusted the pots slightly as some new lasers need their pots adjusting.
And the drive motor was not giving a pulse it was trying to spin but slow came to a stop at which point the drive started hissing.
