Default Use It or Lose It

When my old NEC 3550 bit the dust finally I put my new Benq 1650 in with my old LG, the LG did all the burning and the Benq 1650 was just used for scans.

When the LG 4163b finally died I pulled an old Benq 1620 out of storage.
The benq 1650's eject button started acting up, to the point I had to keep an emergency tool(little thin rod) to open tray.

Durn

Then I went out and got some newer ritek mid's and the old benq was taking 15 minutes to burn even set at 8X, nice burns but too slow, so I tried the benq 1650, it was fine, 8 minute burns, I just kept a blank disk in the drive at all times so I didn't have to use the tool.

Now the punch line, after about 40 burns the eject button started working??

I wrote this little doodad for opening and closing my burner trays. Still, every now and then I use the hardware button:

Sounds like the button switch was dirty. So after being used it cleared the dirt from the contancts of the reject button switch.

Also copper oxidizes easily. A little friction way wear through the oxide layer.

Had one of my three 1620s act the same way, tried everything, nothing worked. R.I.P. 1620.

You need to give it a 21 gun salute and bury it with military honors.
