The eject mechanism will not move the disk. See the picture of the drive with partial tear down. The yellow disk just won’t move.


Ok problem solved. After a few more shots of penetrating PB the slide mechanism finally broke loose after 30 years of inactivity.

This model does not have a tray that ejects (slides out). It just sucks the disk in. To eject an inserted disk, press the eject button to the right of the slot. You can also try holding down the mouse button during start up of the Mac it’s attached to.
