Two steps. 1) Look down into the center of the carousel. There should be a round, flat silver knob with an elongated notch in it. Take a coin (US 5-cent piece or similar) and use it to turn the knob. This releases the catch on the metal plate under the projector. You should then be able to lift the carousel off. Be careful: some slides will fall out as the slot is not aligned with the carousel body properly once you do this. 2) Make sure the locking ring on top of the carousel is in place (or else take out all your slides. Turn the carousel over and gently rotate the metal plate covering the bottom of the carousel into position. You will hear/feel a "click" when it's in place.
The projector may have jammed because there are two slides stuck in the viewing slot--check for this before you put the carousel back on the projector. If it jams a lot the metal plate under the carousel may be bent.
Remove the screw that holds the DVD drive in(bottom about five inches in from DVD door). The tray is in, take a paper clip and put the end in the hole of the drive door to release it. Gently pull on the tray and the whole drive should come out. Hope that helps..
Do you mean it will not stay closed?
if that's the case the (closed leaf switch) in the
drive is shorted together . gotta open it up
to fix it . that normallyhappens when someone
trys to open it up with a thin screwdriver.
If the laser was good (reading games) before the tray problem
its still good.
That's an old unit!!!! Reboot is what happens when you shut the computer down and then turn it back on. This is not exactly a computer but it does have a processor and it does require the same treatment. You'll probably have to pull the plug too, for a minute or so.
If this doesn't help, you probably have a broken tray mechanism, either mechanical or electronic failure and repair is iffy and probably not worth the money.
You need to remove the trys affected, most likely there is a sensor issue.
Remove the trays and check behind them as paper sometimes falls behind blocking the sensors. If so, remove the paper.
Also, check the paper slides in the tray themselves, remove the paper and slide them in and out all the way, put the trays back in the machine and put the paper back in the tray moving the slides right up against the paper and close the door. It should work normally from now on, if not try a reboot one more time.
In many cases, the drive motor that moves the disc tray in or out becomes inoperable. It may get a signal to activate, but it is stuck in position and will not function. Yes, you can manually force the tray to open, but noting you can do will help make the tray go in/out using a button or remote.
The entire unit needs to replaced, unfortunately.
Replace the drivebay of the Bose AV3-2-1
If the drive sticks, or does not open, or If you receive an error of NO DISK, or any indicator that the disk is not properly recognized clean the lens and if still doesn?t work then the DVD drive is bad.
You can actually use one for a desktop PC with a few part swappings.
Check that the drive is a Toshiba SD-M1612 it is printed at the bottom of the drive bay.
To use this SD-M1612 as a replacement you will simply have to swap three external parts.
Remove the 3 parts from the bad Bose drive bay:
Remove the 4 bottom bolts, lift cover, if the DVD bay door is locked then insert a paperclip into small hole in the front. Slide DVD tray out and remove the PC style DVD ROM tray facing. 2 clips hold it on pry them out and slide the facing up and off.
Now remove the face of the drive bay. It has several clips.
Save these three components (top cover, face, and tray facing) to add to the new Toshiba SD-M1612 DVD bay. Remove the old and installation is the reversed procedure above. also remove the small clear LED bezel from the new drive before adding the face.
It works fantastic.
