Try a DVD lens Cleaner. If the drive doesn't work at all it might need to be replaced, if your on warranty its best not to take it apart and instead contact your dealer for warranty repair.

There are 2 assemblies inside it.
One works to read/write CD media.

Sharp dvd player does not come on even on standby although the power supply is on.


Pleasant day!

The problem could be the power supply or the main board.all you have to do is to follow this simple and easy way of troubleshooting.

  1. Remove the cover.
  2. Plug-in your DVD player and power it ON to perform a voltage data/check.
  3. Check the input power of the DVD.Use multimeter tester to test the AC voltage (AC range).It should have 120v or 240vac depends on the requirement of your DVD or the main supply that comes on the outlet.If no voltage reading,your power cord have a continuity problem.Replace it with the same type and A.W.G number standard.
  4. If the power cord got voltage reading.Next is test the output voltage of power supply such as 5vdc for the main board and logic supply using multimeter (DC range).If no voltage reading,the problem could be the power supply board.
Check the following parts which commonly breaks on power supply board.
  • The power transistors (regulators)-It is commonly binds on heat sink and found on the primary of the chopper.use a multimeter (range diode test) to check if it is shorted.
  • The fuse-able resistors-it is the resistor that have low resistance such as 1ohm 2.2 ohms etc.It is usually found near the power regulators/transistors.Use multimeter (range resistance) to check if it is open or change value.
  • The capacitors-it is the one who can store voltage.If you have capacitance meter you can test that,if none just look at the appearance of the capacitor if it is bulge on top or leak.
NOTE: If you found the defective parts that mention above,replace it with the same type and ratings.
When the problem is still there,The problem of the power supply is major and not for D.I.Y.I suggest to send it to the qualified technician or just buy a new one.

5. If the power supply have output voltage.The problem could be the main board and unfortunately the main board is not for D.I.Y because composition of the board is very sensitive.The only way to fix it is to buy a new main board unit.

I hope this solution could fix your problem.Please response if you have any comment and question.Thank you and good luck.

Dell Latitude D800-Win XP- My Dvd/rw wont write


Because you lost two devices, the DVD and the wireless mini card, I believe your problem is a drivers issue.
You should make sure you do not have any Malware that is removing these drivers.
If you have access to the Internet download and install Malwarebytes. It has a quick scan that will ID any infections.
Then get the newest drivers for those two devices from Dell's support site.
Before you install the drivers, remove those devices in Control Panel.

your drive is listed as GSA-H55N
The Latest firmware is version 1.06

If this does not fix the situation the drive could be bad.

Ouch - This generally one of two things.

1 - Run up speed is not sufficient due to motor wear.
2 - The laser head sits within a 'plastic' runner, which wear down slowly, causing the laser to be misaligned - therefore not reading adequately.

Depending how adventurous you are feeling - you could dismantle the unit - and 'space off' the laser unit (Single piece of paper) this will lift up the laser.
Or you may be able to adjust the calibration power of the laser using a variable pot (unlikely to be available as these are generally hard coded nowadays - and not physical pots)

Panasonic DVD-RP56 Error H02


I read about removing the cover and spinning the motor by hand. It was suggested without power. I found that I had to have the unit powered up when I hand-spun the motor, then everything worked perfectly... we'll see for how long.
