Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have this since 2000 and it used to work great. Used to use it a lot too! Around 2003, I wasn't using it as much, and was moving. So I had it professionally cleaned before warranty was over. After that, I noticed CD would sometimes skip when playing. Didn't notice problems when recording though. But almost stopped using it completely.
Last time I used it was around 2005 and last recording was before that. Still, it worked!
Now I tried to use it and whatever I put in it (Audio CD-R or commercial music CD), the system scans it for a long time, and front panel switches between "CD", "CD-R", "Data" and "CD-RW" before finally displaying "CHECK DISK" and not doing anything!
So it won't play, won't record, won't do anything!
Nothing major happened to the unit to explain why it suddenly stopped working.
I wish I could make it work without bringing it to a repair shop because I don't have the money. If I absolutely need to, I'd like to know how much it would cost (approx. of course, a small part would cost less than the whole electronic board).
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

the dvd writer needs to be replaced,the laser is faulty or miisaligned, the cost of a repair is no longer viable because a new one would cost about $60 (£32.00)
