    Unhappy Slim LITEON Disc tray problems after installing unlocked PCB

    So I got my TX unlocked PCB & installed it onto my LITEON-0401 drive. I flashed it & everything looked good with all positive messages at the end of all tasks in jungle flasher. I thought I had done it & looked easy as that...
    HOWEVER, after having hooked up the wires & cords onto the drive everything went downhill.
    I tried to eject the drive using the CK3 but it won't eject properly & when it does it only comes out partly. I also tried closing it & the same thing happens.
    I had a look at all the wires they are connected & everything but the drive's dray doesn't seem to work properly at all.
    After having hooked it upto the xbox as soon as I'd turn the power on, the drive would automatically eject partly & when I try to close it on the menu it says "opening" & when I try to open it on the menu it says "closing" so the eject function is not only messed up but also doing opposite to it's actual commands.
    I am confused and lost & I have no idea where to look to start even trouble shooting this drive. It's only a disc tray problem however putting any game into the drive doesn't help seeing closing the drive still leaves the tray open in the perspective of the xbox system.
    I've also googled and looked every where in the team xecuter forums but can't find a proper solution to my problem.
    Please please please help!!!

    Thankyou!

    UPDATE: I tinkered with the drive for a bit, took it apart completely & tried to find out the cause but no help.
    I realized that the tray only opens 1/3 of the way & closes 1/3 of the way too. So it won't open completely and close completely either which is probably what the main concern out of all this is.
    I still can't find a solution. All this problem occurred after installing the unlocked pcb board, so could it be that the board is what's causing the problem?
    I've redone the wiring so I know that's not the issue.

    Do you still have your original PCB? Switching round and trying that would help rule out whether it's a mechanical failure or hardware failure.

    Nonetheless, you see where the white, green and yellow wire go into near the motor? Check on the other side of that, as that is where a tiny lever is which tells the drive whether it's open or closed - if this has somehow become jammed then it will explain your problem. I had a drive which would never close and it turned out that lever had become damaged somehow and would never flick over properly, it's worth an inspection.

    Hey mate thanks for the reply. I've opened up the drive again & I can't seem to find the small tiny lever that you're talking about. Is it on the front face of the drive?

    I can try installing the old pcb back but that will be a bit difficult since I don't have a soldering kit.

    It's on the side that you place the disc, it's literally the part where those 3 wires connect to on the underside. You will probably need to manually slide the dvd tray back and forth until you can see it, each time the bottom of the tray moves over it, it switches position, for this reason it can be easy to miss - this is really hard to explain through words, if I have time tonight I'll post a picture of what I mean but perservere and you'll find it.

    Yes it will be more awkward reinstalling the old pcb without a soldering iron, however if you have enough length you can get away with twisting the ends together and taping round them, or use additional wire to act as a jumper of sorts, it ain't pretty, but it will help narrow down the source of the problem. It's not impossible for the pcb to be at fault, I sent one back recently which spazzed out when a disc was loading spinning at 90,000rpm, how long have you had it and from where did you buy it?

    I can see a tiny lever which can be moved back & forth but that seems to be working fine. Mechanically I can't find anything wrong with the drive at all. I've had a play around with the belts & gears & everything & they seem to be all working fine ...I think.
    However if I am wrong, pics will help if you do provide later, thanks.

    I bought the board from modsuppliers in Sydney, Australia a few months ago but I couldn't use it then since I didn't actually have a slime xbox with a 16d4s drive. Nonetheless the pcb is completely brand new & I just opened it today.

    One thing I can note that seemed unusual was, when I tried to flash it. The board won't detect but upon going into intro through the MTK flash tab in JF, the properties seem to come out properly. I also ended up flashing it properly as it said in the end the flash was successful & the drive read as a liteon 16D4S [slim]

    i have no idea ,but check a few things.

    first check your tools.
    1.is jungleflasher the latest version?
    2.was portio installed correctly, and loading correctly. did you see a message in Jungleflasher that portio was loaded.?
    3.is the firmware ok, did you get it from official places ?
    maybe wrong bin, or corrupted bin.
    try download new firmware package.
    4.check the SATA or USB drivers. reinstall them.
    5.check the wires on the PCB again ,maybe some are mixed up.
    6.check the ribbons for breaks , and see if they are pushed in far enough.
    7.use a multimeter and see if there's a break in one of the wires.

    8. send the PCB back. probably faulty then.

    It could be a bad board maybe?. You could try just re-flashing the board again to see if that kicks it back to function properly.

    Edit:

    My 0401 that I have here has the black wire soldered to were your red wire is located on your picture on the unlocked PCB?.

    You could try switching the black over to the red and via versa.

    sounds like that could be it.
    because his drive is doing opposite to it's actual commands he said.

    wires mixed up, that explains a lot

    Yeah I only just realized and those are the 2 wires linked up to the drive motor so that's my guess?. Hope this works for you @OP
