Re: cd door not closing
Either the switch that detects it closing is failed in some
way, the gears or belt mechanism that closes it is slipping,
or the position of the tray relative to the gears has
changed (meaning the drive *expects* the switch to sense
that the tray has closed completely when the gear rotates to
a certain point but since the gear and tray aren't aligned
right to each other anymore, that isn.t happening.
If it is a gear-tray mismatch as written above, you'll need
to take the case off, manually eject the tray and press in
the retention tab(s) that keep it from coming completely
out, so you can then take it completely out. Next examine
the range of travel of the mating gear and realign the gear
as it should be at the end of the tray extension, before
putting the tray back in. It's easier to do it than explain
A dust problem isn't likely.
