Question about Computers & Internet
MY LG COMBO STOPPED READING DVDs. BUT CDs R R/W VERY WELL
If you are good at opening then open the combo drive and clean the lens once by using some lens cleaner solution and then refit it it should work ...
if you still persist the problem then think that the life of the combo drive is getting down and the time to purchase new one is getting nearer ..
after some days your combo drive will fail to read the cds but it will read occasionally for some days after that it will not read anything that s because the lens is becoming weaker ...
at the cost of replacing the lens you can purchase the new dvd writer ...
but also try cleaning the lens with some lens cleaner solution after that it may work for some days ..
the only problem with the combo drive is the lens will be weaker than the normal dvd writer or cd writer so after some days of usage it fails to detect dvds followed by it fails in detecting of cds too ...
rate my solution

First you shutdown your computer, then disconnect all power cords. I don't know if you have a tower or a deskpro, with the tower just slide the panel out pulling from the back, you may have to remove a piece from the front with a tower. Pay attension to how your cd rom is hooked up, I don't know if this is a combo (cd/dvd/RW) if it's a combo, if it is a combo you would have to take out the old drive and replace with the new, just pay attenion to how the old drive is hooked there should be two cords to connect to . If there separate drives there should be an empty bay. Let me know how your doing, and if I can assist you more.........Thanks, Heidi
