Question about HP PAVILION SLIMLINE S7520N AMD Turion 64, 1.86 GHz, 1024MB, 200GB, DVD-RW/CDRW Combo Drive, Slimlin... (EX259AA#ABA) PC Desktop

OK, here's the problem..

The lightscribe enabled DVD/CD drive seems to have a mind if it's own.

The door opens and closes at random..This happens whether there is a disk in it or not.. It will even suddenly open when it is playing either a commercial DVD movie or C/D music disk thereby interrupting the program that is running....

What to do??

Unplug your unit from power chord for 30 minutes and plug back the power chord to the unit . This will reset your unit .
This problem can be due to bad motor which causes the door to open at random times .

    Sorry for First post dont consider that solution I misunderstood the problem .

    You go to control panel and check whether the DVD drive status is working or it is hardware fault .

    If the status is ok .

    Then you try to open the dvd drive and check for any loose connection .

Go to Control Panel>System>hardware>device manager.
Click on + sign next to cd/dvd drives.
Right clik on the DVD drive and select uninstall.
then restart the unit and see if it is corrected.

Let me know,
Joe

Lightscribe dvd drive won't work. the eject command does not make it open either. seems to be jammed. if i break it down can it be "unjammed" without ruining it?


Actually it's probaly just got some dust or something in it. What you do to manually open it is take a needle, thumb tack, or safety pin and simply insert it into the tiny hole above the eject button on the dvd drive itself. You'll feel the tip of the button when you push the pin into the hole then it will pop the door and the drive will open properly. This has gone on for cd/dvd drives for years. Usually just the cause of dust or what have you being stuck in the mechanism.

Can i add lightscribe to a new laptop? just ordered it and realized it does not come with lightscribe.


The LightScribe-enabled CD/DVD disc drive contains a special laser that pumps light into this label to create whatever designs you have created. The light from the laser causes a chemical change in the dye coating that shows up as a visible point on the disc.
The best way to add this to your new computer is to buy a Lightscribe external drive that connects via a USB port.

Lightscribe dvd/cd super multi drive electing all by itself.


It may be a hardware problem. If it starts ejecting as soon as you switch on the system i.e. before booting into the operating system then it is definitely a hardware problem. Take the drive to the service centre and get it fixed. Or if it happens when you are using windows then it might be a prank program or a virus. Check your running processes and make sure all are right. (You can google the process name and check the results)

Lightscribe enabled drive opens


Sounds like there might be debris that is keeping the door from closing all the way properly so when that happens it can make the door open up from time to time.

IF you don't have debris, could also be that the mainboard inside of the drive is going bad and causing the door to open and close on its own.

Change out the drive with a new one cause not only will that take care of the door problem but you'll have a new laser in the new drive and will last much longer.
