Teac DW-224E CD-rw/ DVD rom in Toshiba Satellite Pro M15-405


Hello konagold, Yes there may be some ways to test it. Let's try the following. When you open your laptop, open the cd rom's tray and check to see where the lens mechanism is positioned. Normally it should be near the main central motor. Try to turn off the laptop, but leave the tray opened. When the laptop is turned off, use one one hand to move the lens assembly away from the main motor. Move it to the middle of the distance from the center to the edge. Carefull not to touch the lens when you do this. Now place a bootable cd (like the ones that come with your operating system or anything else you can find) and start the laptop back again and instruct it to boot from the cd-rom. It should make it try to boot from there. If this fails, the cd-rom is indeed damaged and most likely will need to be replaced. You may try to clean the lens assembly but I can't be sure this will help, based on your problem. Please run these instructions first, then reply to me in order to see what's next to do. Bogdan

It does not read cd's or dvd's when inserted in the tray?


Hi..

this may caused by
  • Dirty Lens

  • Faulty Internal Mechanisms

  • Corrupted Data transfer

  • Dirty Lens- Your Drive's Lens may have become dirty and you need to clean the lens.It is usual that the lens become dirty time to time. You can clean the lens by the cleaning Disc which can be purchased separately from a nearby computer shop.

  • Faulty Internal Mechanisms - all internal movements are powered by a small electrical motors and belts. If any of these are not working as it would, then Drive may not work as expected. You may need a expert hands to clear this problem.

  • Corrupted Data Transfer - If all the internal parts are working properly but data cable is not connected properly, then too drive may not read any discs. you can reconnect the cables.

Will not play or burn cd or dvd


Manually cleaning the lens
To locate the laser lens, look around the door or drawer of the DVD player and you will see a small circular disc, which is often called the turntable or disc platter. Right off the edge of the platter you should see a small clear lens. There are some manufacturers that have had problems with the lens, depending on the age of the unit. In these problem players, moving the unit to a different location, turning the unit upside down, or sometimes even without moving the unit, the lens can become detached from the laser assembly and floats around inside the unit. You can re-glue it back with a little crazy glue, BUT it must be perfectly centered, and without getting any glue on it. So, if you don’t see the plastic lens, but instead see the laser pick-up assembly, look around for the lens inside the unit and glue it back on.
To clean the lens you must use very little pressure. Take a cotton swab and barely moisten it with plain, non-scented, or oily type alcohol. In a swirling motion, very gently rub the lens until you’ve covered it entirely. Then repeat using the dry end.
If the cleaning didn’t help, don’t despair just yet. You can see if there’s a problem elsewhere in the unit by using a few simple tricks and tips.
First thing you want to see if the unit’s laser is in good working order. This method isn’t foolproof, but most of the time works admirably. When you insert a disc, see if you can look up underneath where the disc sits on the turntable. Observe the laser lens going up and down. If the lens is trying to focus, that’s good! After a few seconds of the lens trying to focus, the platter should start to spin. On almost every CD/DVD unit I've encountered, the unit won't spin unless the laser has properly focused on the surface of the disc. If the unit spins up and and then shuts down, you should check and make sure the laser pick-up assembly slider mechanism is working without any obstructions and that the small chrome rail that it slides on is slightly greased. Don’t go overboard with the grease though, as too much can cause all sorts of problems.
The slider mechanism, depending on the age of the unit and the manufacturer, consists of the small chrome rail, a drive motor, a small gear assembly, and (in some units) a small belt that drives the slider unit via the motor. This small belt causes all sorts of problems. If the belt is broken or slipping, it can cause skipping, dropouts, or simply no start up at all. Also, if the belt breaks in the middle of the disc, the drive mechanism gets hair or dirt wrapped up into the gears, or the pick-up assembly doesn’t return to the start position (called home), the unit will (99% of the time) refuse to release the disc, causing it to become stuck inside the unit. There’s a little micro or leaf type switch located at home position that sometimes gets dirty or breaks and, causing this problem also.
If the disc starts to spin slowly and doesn’t come up to speed, the spindle motor that’s attached to the turntable platter is a common problem. There could also be a problem with the spindle motor driver controller IC or the power supply regulator that supplies voltage to the driver IC. If the disc starts to spin and then spins really fast, or stops and starts to spin backwards, your problem is the laser pick-up assembly or the servo control circuit. If you continue to have problems after cleaning and checking the other things listed above, you may have a problem with the player's alignment. Of course, one of the problems you'll face checking alignments on a DVD/CD player is that you’re going to need to use an oscilloscope on most of them. If you have the proper tools and equipment, the first thing to look at is the RF pattern of the unit while its playing. It should be a sharp and clear pattern. If it's dull and smeared, then the laser could be weak.
Also, in these units are very critical alignments called the focus/tracking gains and offsets. When these alignments are off, it can often cause intermittent troubles. As the unit ages and parts change value, so do these alignments, and will need to be checked. In my time as service technician repairing DVD/CD players, 65% of the laser pick-up assembles I have tested were good and only needed a small adjustment. Today's technology makes it unfeasible for a shop to hook up a DVD/CD player, and even some recorders, to their equipment and make these adjustments because of the cost involved.

hope this may help;

Cd not reading


When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD RW drive unit.

JVC Everio Share Station DVD burner


There is a cd / dvd lens cleaner avilable that you can purchase and it does the work for you.. its just like a cd inquire in your local shops..

If you want to do it manually ,, take the burner apart, and using a qtip and strong liquor or rubbing alcohol gently clean the lens and let dry.. The lens is a small thing attached between a bar.. it fits in a slot and can move along the length of the cd.. it has a small glass like thing on it so you should be able to recgnise it easily.. I am not sure if i described it ok enough but if you need i can upload a piuc for you.

Harry, two possibilities that are immediately apparent. One, the lens on the drive is dirty. Stop by a department store and buy a CD/DVD laser lens cleaner CD and put it in the drive several times, making sure that it tries to read it each time. This can brush away the debris on the lens and it may work again. Two, the drive motor or lens assembly (that moves) has failed. My experience is that these drives have a 2-3 year life span. Luckily, they are now bargain-priced and you can pick them up at your local discount store and replace them yourself.

My CD/Dvd drive is not working


You can try this, Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers. Try using it again, hopefully fault free.
