T420s Optical Drive - No power to dvd drive, but same dvd drive works in other 4T20s

2013-03-21, 13:46 PM

Hi guys, i wonder if you can offer any ideas here. I have a brand new T420s which came with an optical slot place holder piece of plastic. I removed this and popped in a 'Lenovo DVD Multi IV DVD Multi Recorder CD-RW' P/N 45N7453. It clicked into place fine, but the power light on it does not come on and the eject button does not work.

This same drive works fine in 2 other T420s laptops my colleagues have, so the drive is ok. 

I tried disabling the optical drive in the bios, rebooting, re-enabling, rebooting but nothing. Is there anything else i can try or would you say its a board issue and i'm stuck with it ?
