I have completed the first playthrough of Borderlands 2 and have opted to do the second playthrough. The problem is that at a certain point where Claptrap gets his eye back, and you have to take a weapon to open the door, it seems my level is one level shy of being able to pick up this door opening weapon.

I am not sure I can go back and keep my place. Is there a fix for this? Do I have to start over or something?

You can pick it up, you just can't use it. – Frank Dec 27 '13 at 14:34
@Frank - I cannot pick it up. Tried that, unless I am doing something really stupid and missing something. – Carl B Dec 27 '13 at 14:37
is your inventory full? – l I Dec 27 '13 at 15:34
@Spartacus - now I feel stupid....That was the issue. I actually had 14 items in a 12 item backpack. Once I dumped some, I could pick up the "trigger" and Claptrap opened a portal. If you post, I will accept. – Carl B Dec 27 '13 at 15:43

Check to make sure that your inventory isn't full.

What really gets me is that I could have had some very powerful weapons that I could have "Grown into" during game play instead of struggling with level 22 and 23 guns. I think I have more hours logged in a respawning record with this game:). Oh, and I lost about one pound of hair that I pulled out in frustration. – Carl B Dec 27 '13 at 17:01
