Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
There are three potential problems that I can see if you have dropped your optical device:
1. Most often, the device is damaged or worn out so that the disc 'brake' will not disengage or the door isn't recognized as closed. The 'brake' is an eraser-like device under the CD door that stops the disc when the console is turned off.
2. The other problem could be the console is not detecting that the CD door is closed and thus will not spin up the disc to start.
3. The laser is worn out or shattered.
At any rate, the best thing to do is take the device in to a local technician for servicing. The techs can replace any of the parts for the cost plus labor. A great place in the Vegas area, for example, is at http://www.vegasgamerepair.com/
Good luck to you!
