Question about Teac (DW-224E) DVD Drive

1 Answer

Does not recognize cd/dvd, light blinks continually

Does not recognize cd/dvd light blinks continually. The light blinks about .5 sec on and off continuously whether there is a disc in or not. In 'my computer' it shows the drive as being there and in device manager it says it is working properly. Yet it does not work. I saw a post somewhere that said the problem may lay with the lens and all it needed was to be cleaned, I tried to, but did not want to touch that stuff too much. any ideas???

    So I cleaned it, I think. It is the little blue dot on the slider bit, right? Where might I find a new lens? I guess I can google it, but any suggestions??

    Sorry it took so long to get back with you. It seems this drive is done. It actually started making clicking noises when a disk was residing in it. But still no dice. So I have given up and am currently waiting on my new one to arrive. Just out of curiosity...Is it possible to modify an internal DVD drive from a PC to fit a laptop??

It could be a problem with the lens, you should try cleaning the lens, it's already gone bad there is no harm in trying

if that doesn't work you can either repalce the lens or purchase a new DVD/CD drive

    the other way round is more feasible, the pc DVD drive consumers more power than the lap top version.

  2. Using the original Philips TV remote press the following keys. Press each key for 1 sec then press the next.
  3. From the remote press 0 6 2 5 9 6 MENU
  4. Wait a few seconds. The red power light should begin to blink.

Then, follow this path: local machine, system, current control set, control, class, 4D36E965- E325 - 11CE - BFC1- 08002BE10318. then on the window under Name, look for upper and/or lower filters. right click on it and delete. restart pc. then you're good to go.

Run a good cd/dvd cleaner in it. The type that looks like a disc with brushes on it. It probably has dirt on the lens and can't recognize the disk.

toshiba terca m1 can the teac dw-224e-36 drive be replaced with a dvd burner drive? thanks, brent hindsbwh@yahoo.com 732-754-3371 The problem with replacing the original CD drive in these notebook computers appears to be a serious "large-scale" problem. When you replace the CD drive with another Manufacturer and/or Model the Recovery CD and associated software can't find the exact drive ID its looking for. It then refuses to proceed with the software reload to bring itself online and function properly. This is called "forcing the customer to come to the original manufacturer only" policy and paying whatever they demand to get a replacement that will work properly with all the original system CD's. I'm sure the Boot EPROM has the DW-224E-36 ID burnt into it to ensure it doesn't load alternate drivers. We all hate to pay $150 - $190 for a drive we know cost approximately $20 - $30 to make. When you make 5,000 to 15,000 of anything every week, the actual manufacturing cost gets incredibly low. I've been chasing an answer to this problem for a Toshiba Satellite A25-S207 system needing a functional DW-224E-36 DVD ROM CD R/W drive because it won't read the Recovery DVD to load the software onto a new HardDrive. The Notebook is literally "like new" but the HardDrive and CDROM drive are disfunctional due to overheating. The cooling airway pathway was totally blocked with "lint" and the owner never thought to have a professional look at the system. I wish us all "good luck" finding a seller that is satisfied making a "reasonable profit". All I've thus far been able to find are sellers wanting to triple, quadruple or 6X their money on anyone that relies solely on a notebook computer. Toshiba wants $188 for a replacement. Then add state tax and shipping to pay over $200. This is outrageous for this product and the PC owner will probably have to throw the unit away as she can't afford it. $100 for a new hard drive, $200 for a new CD drive, $100 for a new battery and $100 for 1GB of new RAM (remove 2ea-256MB small DIMM's and replace with 2ea 512MB small DIMM's). This doesn't have any labor included with the costs. I'm doing the repair as a friend to the owner's family. $400 is minimum to cover the "need", the extra RAM is a "want". The real loser's are the PC owner and the world we live in because we have another 10-14 lbs of "electronic & plastic scrap" to bury in a hole somehere and she has to figure out how to fulfill her computer needs affordably. Goood Luck to all. JRCjr 12-28-08 (I would appreciate whomever owns this website to not make my email address viewable by the general public). Should someone have a better answer I am open to suggestions. astute.solutions@net-star.net
