Hi, I want to install a BluRay player. I have removed the current DVD drive but I cannot get the plastic fascia off the front. Having seen other fascia removed on YouTube I cannot see the locking pins they refer to. I have tried to gently prise it off / slide it off but it just seem to put a strain on the DVD player's leading edge. I do not want to exert too much force in case I break it. I am beginning to think it is a permanently assembled part specially for the Omen. I have contacted HP & their parts department who have, quite frankly, been useless (and not for the first time, I am still struggling to replace a battery for an Omen laptop I have).
Does anyone know if the fascia can be removed & fitted to another optical drive and, if yes, how? If it cannot be removed, do HP supply a BluRay drive for the Omen and how can I get HP to sell me one (they don't even recognise the part number - 849055-6C1- on the current drive!!)? Thanks in advance.
