it seems the front that you press to pop it open is jammed in somehow. i didn't pour syrup on it or anything, so im kind of worried. is there a way i can open 'er up and fix it? or should i just use some thin wire-type things to pull it forward? has anyone else had this problem?

ive had mine for just over a year, and i didnt buy apple care, so im not worried about ruining any warranty.

any help would be appreciated, its been a great computer so far, no other complaints, other than the wierd sound it makes when ejecting dvds and waking up

if youve got an answer for me, thanks a lot for your patience!

I just had a look at the mechanism and I cant really see how it works...2 pins somehow dop into the slot. When you push the release button on front it pushes a relase bar back, letting go of the pins.
If I had to guess they move centre to outer sides approx half inch left and right of push relase button
Sorry I cant help.

If there is a MAC store near you, I would bring it by there and see what they have to say. They may fix it in moments for free.

thanks guys, i think thats all the info i'd need. im going to just take it in. i think im just afraid they'd charge $40,000 for the repair or something. its not really a fix-at-home kind of thing really. cheers!

The guys and gals at the store in my area are great, I would feel comfortable saying they would do it for free if its a simple fix. Also, if it is a common issue they will know exactly what it is and be able to do it fast.

I am glad to hear. Maybe when you find out what the problem was you could post it so that next time we can give the correct advice.
