Opening CD-ROM Drive

  penholder 12:53 17 Apr 2006

I have an AOpen CD-R/RW Model 5232/ARR. It will not open at the first attempt, it takes three pushes of the button before it will do do so. It will close with one press of the button.
Once it gets past this stage, it opens and closes on each push of the button. Any ideas?

How old is the drive? maybe it's just wearing out.

Have you checked the power lead for firm contact?
