Question about Sony DRX-810UL DVD RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

Lid fails to open!

I'm using Sony DRX-810 UL from 3 years and it's being working fine...but recently from past few months it has problem with it's lid......when i press the button to open up the drive nothing happens, just a sound of a jerk and nothing happens, so keep pressing it again and again may be 20 times it this pressing continously happens everytime i used it. This is so annoying!
I opened the drive with screwdriver to diagnos the problem and wat i found that when i pushed the button the drive is not capable enough to push back up to the extent where the tray pops out so with the slight pull of my finger it comes out with a single push on button, now could u plz tell me what should i to repair drive is still opened on my desk...and dont know how to give that force to the drive for the proper push so that the tray comes out in one click.

Waiting for your respone.

Drx-830u not responding

I an sorry to say but it appears ya drive has gone faulty :( I have seen this a number of times at the shop.. If ya have a stuck disk it can be gotten out by using a straightened paper clip and inserting it into the hole in the front of the drive, and by pushing it in the drive door will be opened.
