Question about Toshiba SD M1712 Internal DVD Drive
This DVD-ROM is used in my KiSS DVD player. The problem is opening the tray. Sometimes it opens; other times it doesn't. Sometimes it opens a bit then suddenly the tray is withdrawn into the drive. It may be difficult to find another DVD ROM that fits properly into the player which I reslly like because it has an Ethernet port and plays DivX and XviD. Any ideas?
Yes... we do get attached to our toys.
Sounds like your tray slides (left and right) have some kind of contamination?
Best if you can remove the drive so you can CAREFULLY clean the tray rails and slides. Don't be tempted to lubricate with anything because the oils (etc) may serve to capture even more junk... a common Q-Tip should do the job.
Most drives have a tiny hole in front to extend the tray manually? If not, open the drive door and HOLD IT OPEN as you power-down for easier service.
INSPECT the tray 'gears' inside. IF they have a paste-type lubrication on the gears just break off one of the ends of the used Q-Tip and reapply the paste (usually) to the SAME GEARS it came from... DO NOT put the lubrication anywhere else!
Finally use common rubbing alcohol on a Q-Tip to clean the drive tiny belt.

SOURCE: Toshiba SD-M1202 Schematic
You may be out of luck As most toshiba drives are made by a differant division of toshiba then what the computers are and most of these drives come as a whole part and the computer divsion at Tosiba dosent even have the schematics for them as like I say they dont fix them they simply replace them as a part in whole. All differant drives will have the same pinout as the drives are interchangable. But before I spent alot of time experimenting I would make sure the drive works in a puter. Good Luck

Try first turning off the player and turn it back on and eject it using the eject button on the unit and also try to eject it using the remote.. IF still wont eject this can be a mechanical function on the ejecting part of the unit that you may need to open the unit and check for that..
Hope that helps.........
