inspiron-15-3521 Optical Drive

This question is not answered

The first time that I used my optical drive, the bezel was loose on one end. I carefully snapped it into place. Now it will not stay closed when it is empty. It will always pop open several minutes after it is closed. Still works fine and stays closed when there is a disk in it. Any ideas?

  • HI JBEACHLER,

    I have ran into this problem myself and fixed it by using a tiny bit of super glue on the plactic pins that the door clips on the optical drive housing. 

    Look:

    Apply tiny amounts of superglue here and avoid the eject button and action LED if at all possible, make sure you hold in place for a few seconds then let dry before closing so no transfer.*Eject drive out before please!
