TiBook Combo Drive Repaired - Not

Post by 1tibookuse » Mon, 03 Nov 2003 04:48:25

In anticipation of receiving Panther
on its day of release I backed-up
my data and ran Disk Utility to repair
the disc and permissions (nothing
major wrong). When I inserted the
first Panther disc the drive spit it out.
I tried twice more and on the third effort
the disc wouldn't go in beyond half way.
Talk about bad timing!

I have AppleCare Protection Plan.
After contacting Apple sent TiBook to
Texas and had it returned within 48
hours (I'm in *** ia). The "Proof of
Repair" letter enclosed lists the following:
678-0384 COMBO DRIVE

After booting I immediately discovered
discs would not go in the slot the last
1/2". I'm also am hearing odd electronic
noises upon inserting and removing a disc.
Apple has given the go ahead to return the
PB and assured me they will get it fixed
this time.

Does anyone have a clue as to what's going
on and why the first repair efforts failed?

2. CD-RW/DVD-R drive on Tibook won't read : is there any hope?

Hi folks.

My powerbook g4 ti-book (667 model, about 4 years old) has stopped reading
any CD I put in. Response is as if CD is completely unrecognisable
(identical to when CD is upside down - a brief whizz, a few seconds
silence, another brief whizz, repeat 3 or 4 times then spit-out).

Any chance this is something fixable?

Would appreciate advise or commiserations,
