eMachine T3025 DVD Drive won't open

Hi Anybody,

The computer is about 4-5 years old. Still works great except the DVD drive no longer opens.

When I push the button I get a soft sound of movement (I can see the exterior bay cover moving slightly) followed by another or the same soft sound at which point the movement stops. About 6-7 seconds later I hear another very similar or identical sound and then a green light flashes for a couple seconds in a translucent strip of black plastic located just under the DVD bay.

As near as I can tell all connections are in place and properly seated.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Probably a dying servo or worn gears? Do you have a disc stuck in the drive? There should be a very small hole that you can insert a paper clip into to manually open the drive. Sounds like it's time to buy a new drive.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
