Everything was fine till about a week ago.
Hit "power", HDD LEDs lit up, CD light went on, then off, DVD light went on and stayed on and nothing else happened.
Usually, the DVD light goes on, then off, then beep, then away we go with the normal process.
Thought I might have a disk jammed in the tray, so I shut down the power & used the release to get the tray open, but no disk, so I shut the tray & turned on the power & then it worked as usual. Thought it was weird, figured maybe the tray wasn't shut all the way the first time?
Next few times, it booted without issues. Then it does the hang thing again; but opening and closing the DVD tray seemed to work.
Today same thing but opening & closing the tray didn't work, just sits there with the DVD light on and goes no further. All the fans, etc. power up and run fine, it just hangs up before the post beep.
I checked the connections & they appear fine. DVD is set as master and CD as slave on the same line. I have been using both drives and they seemed OK till now.
Any advice as to the appropriate order to start checking things out? Should I try swapping out the cables or connectors? Any suggestions are appreciated! Thanks.
The DVD is AOpen, (model 1616L, not 100% sure of the number, looking for the documentation) and the CD is a Sony. (looking for the model on that one.
