Power Calibration Errors are usually caused by a couple of things:

1: The laser eye is dirty and should be cleaned with cotton swab and rubbing alcohol
2: Cheaper CD's also sometimes have a tendency of causing a problem as well.
3: The burner is just wearing out and needs to be replaced.

Power Calibration Error just means that the burner is not reading the CD

Had a drive that did the exact same thing myself. You'll need to replace the CD drive. It's cheaper than having it repaired.

I have a Power Acoustik PTID-7000NR and the cd is stuck and will not come out. It plays fien and everything else works. But the CD will not come out. Any suggestions? Thanks!


you may have two cd`s inside take the radio out and take it apart. inside the radio there is a realese for the cd tray but you have to have power to the unit for it to work. eject the cd from the front then hit the release on the inside its a little tricky but you should be able to find it

Power calibration error


In the past some burns did not like some makes of cdr's. Ask a friend for a blank cd from a differant manufactor. And be sure that your burn software is set to use the right drive.

Power calibration area full


There are many facts cause "Power calibration area Full" error. First of all clean up your TEMP files. Make sure DVD media you are using is supported by you DVD Writer. CDs are rather easy to write. DVD requires more precise laser beam to channel as its more dense than CD. So physical facts like dust on the lens might be a factor too. Also firmware update for your DVD Writer will be a great step. These are the main factors.

Good Luck

Problem copying a movie onto a lightscribe hp dvd +r media disc, using my hp dvd940e dvd writer


The semaphore timeout period has expired refers to the fact that the driver is no longer communicating with the device and failed. Each time a CD Burner is setup for a CD Burning session the burner hardware will perform a 15 step power test to determine the OPC for a Blank Media Disc, OPC meaning Optimum Power Calibration. This test also takes place during the CD Burning process so the CD Burner can determine the best burn speed and method for the disc; this test is called 'Running Optimum Power Calibration'. Although the test is performed by the hardware of the CD Burner, the device initializes the CD Burning Software for the test to take place. This is one reason why your software may report the "Power Calibration Error" or ?Calibration Error Full?. With Power Calibration errors they can be caused by different factors and sometimes difficult to locate, especially if the errors are at random. Below are the known factors that will cause the Power Calibration Errors and how to check each factor, it is important that each point is considered if wanting to get to the bottom of the error. Power Calibration Errors can occur when OPC or ROPC tests for the media disc so the condition of the disc, brand of disc and even the firmware for the CD Burner can be the cause for the errors occurring. A device such as a CD Burners can have different problems if there is a power consumption issue with the system and the Power Calibration Error is just one of those problems. If using either an internal or external CD Burner make sure to disconnect all other devices, except the hard drive and Burner, before attempting to burn a disc. Double check all cables for any faults and if possible test with a 2nd Data Cable. It is also advisable to disconnect the power connection for the CD Burner and test with a spare connector. If you have no trouble with other discs, use them and put to one side the lightscribe, other than that try the burner in another pc or with other burning software, as you can see it's quite ridiculous what problems burners can create.
