Cannot eject the CD/DVD that is currently in the drive. It does not appear on the desktop, and when I restart the PowerBook pressing C it doesn't boot from it. The Media eject button doesn't display the eject hologram when I press it, and restarting pressing the trackpad hasn't work. Opening up the DVD player displays the message 'A Valid DVD Drive could not be found (-70012). My PowerBook doesn't have the manual eject button to press with a paperclip.
So that's everything I've tried, as well as searching on these forums but the questions aren't as specific. If anyone can suggest something I'd be grateful.

Hi,
Apple Knowledge base lists the follwoing:
The drive doesn't eject discs
If the drive ejects discs slowly or appears to be struggling, insert and eject a disc several times.
If the drive does not eject discs, press the F12 key or, on original PowerBook G4 computers, the manual eject button located on the side of the slot. Holding down the trackpad button during startup should also eject a disc.
If the disc still does not eject, update the optical drive's firmware. This step may not be needed for all computers.
Reset the parameter RAM (PRAM) and/or the Power Manager (PMU.)
If the disc still does not eject, contact Apple to arrange for service.
