DVD-ROM wont open/stay shut


I got a dvd drive that wont open.
So i took it apart off course!

After cleaning and reseating still the same.
Then i took it apart and hooked it up.
Took off outer metal shell.

This time it wont stay shut.
It just opens and closes 3 times before staying open!

Anyone has a good tip?
I read some stuff about maybe the magnet wont let laser drop or something.
How to fix that? Real cheap and fastxD

Ty for helping!
