Does pushing in the CD tray fatigue the hardware?
by Msorensen - 1/4/07 7:38 AM
My brother is convinced that whether it is on a DVD player or a computer, you should never manually push the tray in, because this causes the hardware to break down faster. He insists that I use the button to retract the tray. I never seem to remember to do this, since gently pushing the tray retracts it just fine. I have been doing this for years and none of my hardware has ever had a broken CD or DVD tray. Can you please give me some ammunition in my argument with my brother to let him know that pushing the tray in is harmless? Thanks! I did search around the forums and the web and didn't find anything on this topic.
