Optical drive You tried to help me a few weeks ago and I wanted you to know that I solved my own problem. The problem was the cabling - I replaced it and it is working perfectly. This might help you in the future. Also just so you know the SL jumper is in the center. Thank you for your input on my problem.

Dear Mitodelvalle,
Here are few things that you might want to check:
  1. Open the chassis of the computer and make sure that the cables that go to the drive are properly connected .. there should be 2 connectors.. One for Power supply with 4 wires and one is a ribbon cable for data. Make sure that the power supply cable is properly connected. you might want to remove and plug it back just to be sure.
  2. If that doesn't work then most of the computers come with a spare power connector hanging loose, you might want to try the spare connector.
  3. Try ejecting the optical drive by inserting pin in to the small hole in the front of the optical drive, just below the tray... Straighten a paper clip and insert it straight into the pin hole below the optical drive's tray and the drive should eject, then pull the trey out gently with your hand and make sure that nothing is broken inside...
Try the above steps and that should help. If you still need assistance, please let me know and I would be glad to assist you further.

Check your cooling system for antifreeze. Also check for any leeks from the radiator, hoses and water pump. If they all check out to be alright check or replace the water tempreture sensor. Hope this helps to solve the problem.

Hey joseph, actually replacing the optical Block is not necessary at all, all you need to do is get into the "Service Mode" of the Tv and change a few setting around, did it a few weeks ago and now my TV looks perfect, no reason to waster $1200 as sony is trying to get over on all us consumers.

If you have verified the hard drive ribbon-cable is plugged in solid at both ends, then you may need a new ribbon-cable.. They only cost a few buckss. Otherwise your motherboard may have problems.

Audio cut off Samsung 32

Try using different audio connections and see if you have the same trouble... try using RCA cables, optical, and HDMI... see if it happens in either scenario... I would bet dollars that you are using optical audio and the cable is crimped, etc.... you probably just need a new digital optical cable...
