Don't worry I put my elite youtube step by step copying skills to good use and now it' s fixed, but I could do with your help with what to do with the twelve screws and 3 plastic cogs left over .
Snooze I lose I guess. Ya just a new tray was highly unlikely to fix anything. If the tray isn't opening then there's something jammed in there that shouldn't be, or loose/broken gears. I'd assume the easiest route would be to replace the entire disc drive instead of replacing any broken parts. Would be higher cost but also a much quicker and easier swap out.
Not sure whether to congratulate you or not. Dunno how it's working with so much out of place yet. Screws are one thing but leaving gears out is another. Unless they're the broken ones you replaced. Though if it ain't broke anymore, don't fix it, lol.Last edited by EricHiggin - on 29 July 2021
