CD ROM tray not locking

Is it software issue or is it time to replace ? It is a Goldstar cd rom in a 1996 PC with windows 95. Have tried reinstall program but tray refuses to stay locked.

Any thoughts ?

Thanks

Looks like a hardware issue open the case and unplug the ribbon cable only and see if the tray
will close if it dosn't then the cd rom drive is at fault there cheap enough these days.

Ribbon unplugged and still does not shut. Many thanks for suggesting this test.
