Dear guys,
Just found this forum. I have had a LiteOn 32x12x40x for quite some time now, its a fine burner. Then one day I forgot I had the tray out and my leg hit it from the side as I got up. The disc tray came out and I couldn't put it back together again. I don't think my warranty covers clumsiness. Anywhere I can send this to be fixed or any advice/faqs/howtos on how to fix this?

Thanks
-Eddy

Probably its not fixable since something must have broken inside (probably where the tray was based). Maybe someone else have another opinion, lets wait and see

I could pull out the tray on my Plextor readers with out damaging them. Sometimes it took a bit of fidling to get it back in right so it cycled but I always got it working again.
Best bet is to pull it and pop it open. you'll know right away if you broke something or it just came all the way out and might be able to be carefully lined up and put back in.
I haven't had to do a Liteon yet and I see a lot of gears in there but so did the Plex drives. If you didn't outright break a gear you have a chance. If a gear just popped off you might be able to reassemble it and go from there. I have torn all the gears out of the Plex, cleaned them up and like that and reassembled them before.
I believe they had some little clip things on top to hold them together so if you did that look to see if a clip is needed and laying in there some where.
At least if it is toast they aren't $350 to replace anymore :)

Dear dude,
I took out the drive and took it apart, then shoved the tray back in. The drive works!

Sweet.

Good to know you can fix some of this hightech stuff the same way you fix the low tech (sticking popsicle sticks or forks into them, using duct tape, washing them, etc).

Thanks for the help guys.
