Have recently got a japanese model 1 to go with the japanese megadrive and because I think the original looks
however I bought it knowing it had a fault. It powers up however I believe pressing reset on megadrive should eject the tray however it does not only way it does that is If I press start on the bios screen then press open on the menu it does open....discs don't play though laser sounds like it might be trying to read then tray just ejects.
Thinking about replacing the laser as that will hopefully fix it but just wondering if anyone has any experience with that particular issue and if anyone can shed light on fact that currently mine does not eject the tray via reset. I have found the laser so if that will at least get it to run games I could live with the tray issue I guess. Also, can anyone confirm if the tray opening and closing should be making a fairly solid and loud clunking sound? In you tube videos etc I've seen the drawer seems to be a lot more "3do" like. Mine is pretty loud. Have silpheed sonic cd and final fight cd so would be good if could resurrect it for Christmas and if anyone can offer any advice at all would be much appreciated.
