One thing I've noticed with my LC16M is that the optical drive door
mechanism is quite stiff - sometimes stiff enough to stop the drive
door opening. What can happen is the eject mechanism starts, meets the
resistance of the door, then stops and closes the drive door again.

I believe I saw a patch for this some time ago on Venky's site
(http://venky.ws/projects/imon/) or linked from it in a forum post. I
think the patch read the signals passed over the USB connection and
gave user control over then. Note I haven't done anything with mine
because everything is control via a separate AV receiver and this case
lives under the TV behind a glass door.
