Insert a CD that has writing on the top, noting which way the lettering is facing. Close the drawer. Wait a few seconds. Open the drawer.
If the lettering still is facing the same way, the disk did not "spin".
So, the motor that spins the disk is dead. Replace the CD/DVD unit.

If the disk does spin, then the laser inside the unit has failed. Replace the CD/DVD unit.

I have a 2001 Honda Crv, the cd player keeps ejecting CDs before it has the chance to load them. The radio works fine, and I gave tried burnt and original disc CDs. Can anyone suggest a solution?


Are these CDs that you burned yourself? Older CD players won't recognize the audio file format of this kind of recording, only the established file format that typical retail CDs have used for years. In recent years, CD players have been developed to recognize more file types than just the old format; but with an older player like you have in your car, it wouldn't recognize what you were trying to play, as if you put a DVD in. It balks, and spits it out. You can burn CDs with the correct file format, you just need the appropriate software or file translator.

I have a Pioneer PDM450. It will scan each of the


A dirty lens on the laser of the CD player or 6 dirty discs. Since it is not likely 6 dirty discs, you have nothing to loose by taking the screws off the back and sides to remove the top cover and try to find the lens. Get a can of "compressed air" and spray it all over the inside of the unit to romove dust bunnies as you work. Take digital photos as you go so you remember how to put it back together.

Good luck, have fun and look at all the neat gears and little motors this thing uses to open the door, close the door, spin the disc, ...

Its really amazing how many parts are in these things for the price they charge these days.

Alternatively, you can bring it in to a local electronics repair shop but it will likely cost you as much as a new unit.

Dell vostro 1510 refuses to handle DVDs


Many times the drive itself is going bad and will stop recognizing dvds first and then eventually will quit reading cds. That would be my bet. I have replaced dvd drives that were doing the same thing and the problem was solved. If it is under warranty Dell will replace it for free. They may ask you to reload your OS first especially if you are dealing with India, but you can lie and say you already did that.

Hello...Well basically it has been 2-3 days that my speakers dont produce any sound. I tried to check from the Conrol Panel in the sound and sound devices icon and it was saying that: There is no sound...


It sounds like you've uninstalled your sound driver. You can do one of several things to try and get it working again:

Search for the driver CDs that came with your computer. They would very likely have the correct sound driver.

Find the model of your motherboard (You can download a program called CPU-Z that will do just that), and search the manufacturer's website for the drivers.

Try performing a System Restore, though I'm not certain that would actually work without messing other things up.

Good luck.
