Tray's will not open - Digital Cameras
Let's assume you have power to it. Often the gears inside are misaligned when you push the drawer instead of pressing the button to allow it to close itself. Many have a belt inside that stretches and slips when they are old. I buy my belts from an area electronics supply. Use a pin or needle through a pinhole in the front to open the drawer. It will open with power or not. Then you have to determine if the belt is OK;that it had power. Then if no other thing is wrong then look for indicators printed on the gears to see if if they line up.
