The tray of my dw1640 randomly opens and closes multiple times partially to fully whether a disc is inserted or not. I can’t read any discs when it’s doing this because it won’t stay closed long enough. It starts up anywhere from a few minutes to more than 8 hours after booting. It only responds to a push of the button randomly as well. I did have to mechanically open it recently with a paper clip which became stuck, but the repeated tray opening didn’t start up immediately after that. Any one have ideas what the problem could be.
I’ve just gone back to a week old restore point for the second time and just like the first time it hung without rebooting, so I shut down with the on/off button. This time I opened and closed the drive while it was powered down a couple of times using a paper clip in the eject hole. I’ve rebooted and the 1640’s working properly - for now. But I’d still like to hear some ideas about what happened in case it starts acting up again.
