Re: Looking for a new Install/Eject replacement part.
Contact the Apple folks to get a return authorization code and deal with the factory on this. Although higher priced than your local repair center, the job will be done by the folks that built the thing in the first place...accordianman

The best option to fix this problem is to take it to a service center unfortunately, but here are a few question you need to know the answers for to be able to get the best service:
1. Was the Wii on when they tried to force the disc in? If not then the noise could be that the motor mechanism has been jammed and the worm gear for the motor has been stripped. You will need the disc ejector mechanism replaced.
2. Was there another disc in the machine at the time? If there was, it is possible that the first disc has become lodged in the machine and could have been broken into pieces, so when the disc is entered or ejected, sometimes it will go in and sometimes not. When there is vibration the disc pieces or even the whole disc could move in and out of the way of the tray. You would also need to have this removed by a service technician.
Wii consoles are notoriously fiddly to deal with when it comes to repairs, needing special screwdrivers and a keenly trained eye to be able to spot a problem in an extremely confined space.
I'm sorry I could not be of more help but I hope this helps you even a little.
It sounds like the machine needs a thoro cleaning especially around the guide pins and tape head. Also make sure that the tape is not being excessively tensioned in the cassette housing. If it happens on more than 1 tape then thoro cleaning of the transport mechanism in the machine is required. You may need to run a cleaning cycle more than once or get it to a repair shop to do it for you. If it happens on all tapes then it is possible that one of the guides has become worn or bent, or the drive mechanism is at fault or the drive belt has become stretched and will need replacing.
What is your unit? If your unit is a laptop ou need to follow this.
You replaced the broken LCD screen in your laptop with a new screen. Does this sound like your problem? Let’s find out what could be wrong and how you can fix it. First of all, I assume that your new LCD screen is compatible with the
old one. Different screens require different video cables. Make sure
you new screen is compatible with your laptop. OK, let’s say you accidentally damaged the LCD screen in your laptop. A
part of the screen still works fine but you cannot use it like that so
you decided to replace the screen yourself.
Her is some instructions to follow.
Before you start to panic, check all cable connections again. Check
connection between the video cable, LCD screen and inverter board.
Reconnect cables just in case.
Take a closer look at the connection between the video cable and LCD
screen. It’s possible you accidentally pulled the video cable from the
connector during the screen installation.
The video cable has to be seated properly, all the way down.
Also, on some older LCD screens there are very thin pins inside the
connector. Take a look inside the connector, make sure there are no
damaged (bent) pins.
You can straighten bent pins with a very small screwdriver but this procedure requires a lot of patience and concentration.
Fortunately, most newer LCD's have a different type of connector, without fragile pins inside.
OK, you have reseated all connectors and cannot see anything wrong but the new screen still is not working. What’s next?
Remove the new screen and connect the old one. If the old one works
properly (except the damaged area) but the new one is dead, apparently
the new screen is defective and has to be replaced. Hopefully it has warranty.
Here’s another scenario. The new screen kinda works. You can see a very faint image but there is no back light.
If that’s the case, disconnect the new screen from the inverter
board and plug in the old screen instead, as it shown on the picture
below. If the back light inside the old screen lights up, apparently the
new screen has defective back light lamp and has to be replaced.
After removing the cover on the player, I rotated the gears manually watching as the locking arms retracted. Once I heard a click ,the drawer unlocked and I opened it and removed the dvd. I replaced the cover and it's good as new!
Looking at the front, flip the unit over. Near the top middle you will see a narrow ****.You will see a white piece of plastic under the ****. If you have a dvd tray pinhole tool, use the bent end and insert it into the **** and use it to push the plastic piece to the left and if you push it far enough, the tray should open. I also used a very small screwdriver at an angle to open the tray.
Marvin, I am not registered here as an expert, so there should not be any charges. I do not have the option of chatting I am guessing only the registered experts have that. Here goes: 1. Take a phillips screw driver and remove all the screws that are holding the case on, there will be some big ones on the sides and a few maybe smaller ones on the back. 2. Lift the the case off 3. You should see the tape on the inside the vcr 4. You may or may not have to remove some of the metalic shielding which should be only anywhere from 4-6 screws if you have a piece of metal directly over the vcr tape some have them some do not. 5 Gently pull the magnetic tape up from around the feeder posts and the drum. 6. Try and work the vcr tape up and out, If you are having extreme difficulties with this try plugging the vcr back up and pushing the eject button while still holding the magnetic tape. The tape should eject now and you and carefully pull it out. 7. When you get the tape out, use your thumb to push up and turn one side of the white reals on the tape to slowly wind the magnetic tape back inside the tape. 8. Unplug the vcr again and replace everything that you had to remove and replace the cover. I hope this helps and let me know if you need further assistance. And since I am not a registered expert here there should be no charge for this help unless you chatted or got help from one of the registered experts.
I had a similar problem, and I took the player apart to find that there was a motor that has a snap-in connection to a circuit board and it was just disconnected. I reconnected it and it worked fine.
There are quite a few philips head screws to remove to get into the case. It slides off the back. Once inside, it's very simple looking, it is really un-intimidating. You may have 4 more very small screws to remove directly on top of the DVD tray. If you need to take it off to see under the tray that is.
I'd like to guess the problem is that the motor that ejects the tray is disconnected.
