    Issue: Optical drive bay does not work. I’ve tried two known working Toughbook optical drives and neither show any sign of receiving power nor are they detected in BIOS.

    I couldnt find a schematic or advanced manual for the 31 series. Is the optical drive connector part of the motherboard or is it a replaceable component?

    Thank you! Is this a part obtainable on the open market or would this be something I need to get from a service center?
