My repair shop fixes this issue for $49.99. So your options are to find one or to take it apart yourself, take apart the drive and try to realign it. Good luck.


Wow, what a rip off

Is there a guide to fix them yourself?

This is what happens when you push the disc tray back in instead of hitting the eject button again to close the drive.

The more times you push the tray yourself, the more you damage the ejecting mechanism.

Always use the button.

That can be a cause. However more often it is the rubber washer they use around the pulleys. Rubber loses it's elasticity after a time. Dryer climates increase this. Once it's no longer stretchy it can't grip the pulley and turn it.

If you can do it yourself, more power to you but I'm in the business to make money doing repairs people cannot do or are too scared to do. You can take your negativity and shove it. To the TC, you can try ifixit.com or YouTube, just be careful not to damage anything.

No problem man. If you have some experience taking apart things, it's not very difficult but if not you just want to be careful.

Would you be able to walk me through the repair?

I unfortunately don't have the time for that. I own the repair shop I work for so my time is pretty limited. YouTube is your best shot for walk-throughs. I'll see if I can find you a link.
