My DVD drive no longer works!

I have an amilo d1840, it is about 1.5 years old. It has a DVD burner in it.

A while ago, I inserted a DVD into the drive, closed the tray, and realized my Amilo wasn't booting from it. So I thought, oh well, bad disc. I pressed the eject button but the tray wouldn't open.

I rebooted, restarted, unplugged everything, but pressing the eject button on the drive would NOT open the tray... what now, I need my DVD!

I unscrewed the DVD drive, removed the cover and took out my DVD. Everything looked fine. The DVD works fine in another computer. I closed the DVD drive, screwed the cover back on. Inserted it, still, no lights and the tray won't open. Seems like a power problem? Any ideas?
