Question about Dell (0F027) CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo) Burner
After opening DVD drive with a pin, now cannot close it
Try pushing it in with gentle but firm pressure. After some distance, it should automatically go in, but at times you may have to push it all the way in.
As Benimur suggested, this could be a problem with the belt-gear assembly/motor, It shouldn't affect the working of the player itself, except for the inconvenience of opening/closing the tray.
If you find this inconvenience unbearable, then you will have to get the device repaired by a competent technician, or replace the player (whichever works out cheaper for you)..

Most DVD/CD drive are belt engaged driven by a small motor. If the tray is not sliding in and out by itself, it is highly probable that the belt is cut and therefore of course would require replacement. In some instances, it could be the small motor itself or the servo electronics that control it. There are also known instances when the tray is misaligned or the plastic rail/gear underneath have been worn out.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
