Gateway AR-230 DVD recorder

The disc drawer refuses to open. The problem was intermittent at first but now I can't get the machine to open unless I try to pry the drawer open. It's always been clean and in controlled climate and works well once I manage to get a disc inside. I think the drawer is off a bit cuz sometimes I have to push it shut further in in order for the machine to acknowledge the disc. Is it possible for me to open the machine and see if the drawer is off kilter? Thank you!

I read about some magnetic thing failing as the unit gets older. Mine does this sometimes and I gently tap top of unit as I hit the eject button. Works on mine so far.

After recording a program I go to disc tools and click on finalize and the screen says to change disc and the recorder never finalize the disc.

It will eventually finish. Finalizing can some time take a few hours depending on the speed of the writer and machine itself.

Disc Tray will not open

My Gateway model #AR-230 tray would not open after several years of use. Removed the black sheet metal cover from the player to access the tray mounting screws in the black plastic tray frame. By tightening or loosening the little screws on both sides of the front of the tray mechanism, I got the tray to slide out (open) reliably again. The problem is the very close tolerance of the internal tray mechanism with the front case opening causes a mechanical hangup or interference. chemicalladdie

Disconnect the "audio-out" cables from the unit.
