My playstation one worked fine when I used it from the last 10 years that I didn't use it and I started having problems with the System because when I put a game on it. It turns on fine but then it ta


seems to be the newer version of the the psONE so i will say to get a CD cleaner first to try to fix the problem. if that fails, consider replacing the laser unit. ti make sure the laser is even working, stick a pen or something into the lid switch and look to see if you cna see a red laser beaming out. dont look straight into it though.(obviously) if you see nothing, or the motor doesnt spin, you have a problem with the whole CD/Motor unit.

Sony cmt-ne5 cd reads no disc


Then it is time to replace this player the Laser reader is defective or the disk doesn't spin due to a defective drive motor, in most cases they don't even sell parts for these players and they are not repaired unless under warranty.

Hi, I have a colleagues laptop here which seems to power up for a few seconds but then doesn't go any further. There is definitely power getting through the motherboard, and the HDD spins up, but...


I believe that is a No Post issue.
Its not the hard drive because you said " and the HDD spins up, but it seems as though it doesn't reach POST" or else you 'll be getting errors associated with the hard drive
There are some laptops even though it has a RAM NO POST issue will not beep
" no display and no beeping at all "
For us to determine if this a Motherboard Issue we have to disconnect all parts that can be disconnected. Disconnect the hard drive, Memory (RAM), battery, if you have a Modem daugther card, Express card, PCMCIA Card.
Try Turning the computer on using the Power Adapter hooked up on the computer. If you are still getting issues Definetly that is a Motherboard have gone bad but we really need to check up other parts that are disconnected

If Motherboard is good you will be getting video but it will stop on the POST screen and you might be hearing beep sounds as well. That means that the Motherboard is fine. Put the parts that are disconnected and clean the metal contacts as well one at a time and try to isolate at what part that is bad

My cd disk tray won't go back in


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;

Regards,
VOTIT

if the laser is moved to the middle of the area and when you first turn it on it doesn't go back to starting possession's then some thing is wrong with the motor drive more than not it's likely you have a crack in the board.

PC boots up, but no display and hard drive does not seem to spin


Actually you do want to hear one beep.
This is POST. Power On Self Test.
No display is a video problem. Swap the card for a known good video card. You should be able to get into the BIOS with that. Presario’s are quit.
While in the BIOS see if the HDD is shown. It doesn’t hurt to check the connection inside. Please keep yourself grounded when inside the PC. For the Compaq Presario S4020WM site go here:
