Question about Apple 15" PowerBook G4 Aluminum 1.67 GHz LCD Display (p/n 1002587) (661-3749 1002587) Mac Notebook
My PowerBook G4 won't eject the CD. None of the ejecting CD solutions I have seen on the Apple Support web site seem to work. When I use any of the ejecting options, the laptop goes through the motions of ejecting the desktop icons, and the mechanism kicks in trying to eject the CD. But you can hear that it does not eject, then it takes it back and sets it all back on the desktop. Is there another way to get this out?
If you can hear that it's trying, it might be getting pinched while trying to eject, especially if something pressed down on the case at that spot. Try gently widening the opening with a flat head screwdriver while you are ejecting the CD. just put the driver in and twist a bit to widen the slot. Also, check to make sure that the fuzzy stuff that brushes off the disk when you insert it - and keeps out dust - hasn't been damaged. If it is partially missing, the missing part may be inside, keeping the CD from ejecting.
