I have a Sony Vaio desktop RA810G. When I press the dvd drive’s eject button on the front panel of the cpu, it makes a clicking sound as if it is trying to eject, but the drive door never opens.
After trying various troubleshooting ideas, I reverted to the tried and true method of banging on top of the cpu after pressing the eject button and it works, the drive ejects.
However, I got tired of using this method and bought a new dvd drive thinking the problem was with my old drive. Now I have the same problem with the new drive as well, it won’t eject if I press the button or if I right click the dvd icon and press eject that way. It simply keeps making the clicking sound as if it is trying to eject, but won’t.
