Question about Lite On (SOHC5236V) CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive

1 Answer

E machine desktop cd/dvd player gets "stuck".

Ive had the computer for 3 months and it has worked great until lately. Now everytime when I watch a dvd, it plays fine until about 2/3rds into the movie it starts to get stuck for a few moments and starts back up again and continues to get worse all the way to the end of the movie. It makes a clicking noise as it tries to clear itself.

    If the lens is damaged, why wouldnt it act up all the time?



    Its a refurbished computer so the warranty is up....



    Dont you think that the sled/lens etc could just use a cleaning/lube job?

Trouble with Dvd player in Dell Inspiron 530


Find the small pin hole on DVD player and use a straightened paper clip to manually eject in case there is a stuck disc.

Use system restore to roll back your system. Look for a restore point longer than the three days.

I don't see a correlation between the two because the system should work even you don't have an optical drive (CD\DVD).

The parking brake on my xdvd8182 doesn't work, im thinking a broken wire. Ive tried the codes, grounding with a switch and hooking up to e brake


It is illegal and unsafe to watch the monitor while driving. I assume this is needed for an RV or something.

STEP ONE. Ground the E-Brake wire.
No matter which method you use, you must ground the brake detection wire. I suggest you tap it into the ground wire on your wiring harness (ensures a good ground).

1. FACTORY RESET METHOD (Temporary)
(This isn't the most effective, but it is the easiest to try, so it's worth a shot since it apparently works on some units.)
** Go to the Menu
** Get to the Settings Menu
** Select <yes> to Reset to Factory Settings.

Have recently heard complaints of this method not being permanent, as this is needed everytime they want to watch a DVD. Also, radio and screen angle presets are lost.

----------------

2. AUDIO CD METHOD (Permanent)
** Insert Audio CD
** Press PLAY
** Press STOP twice on remote
** Enter 26604 on remote
** Press ENTER
** Take out Audio CD and Insert a DVD

----------------

3. DVD METHOD (Permanent)
** Insert a DVD
** Let it play until you hear sound
** Press STOP twice on remote
** Enter 26604
** Press ENTER

Credit: Adam P.

The blue warning screen should immediately go away after pressing the last digit of "26604." Still press ENTER as a precaution.

Disc stuck in dvd drive. tries to spin. won't eject. (emachines desktop with xp home


There is a small pin hole below the tray. Straighten a paper clip and gently push it in this hole. The tray will unlock and pop out slightly, then pull the tray out and remove the DVD disc.

My cd/dvd port slot keeps getting stuck.


Lubricate it. Otherwise change it for a brand new unit for $15-25 only. Now they are cheap as dirt. & it will last for 5 more years.

Staarting to not get past certain discs mennu screens.....


We have had out Toshiba P25-S509 for a very long time. It's a great laptop and watching DVDs with a wide screen was great; That is, until the CD/DVD player was no longer recognized by the computer. We took it in (still under warranty) to have it fixed, only to not work again after a couple of months.

Now YEARS have gone by and I have bought another Toshiba (M305D-S4831) which is great unless you try to reboot and it doesn't fully start up. That's for another review, not this one... So, back to the P25-S509 and YEARS later. We just received two 1GB memory cards, which are being used to replace the "stock" two 256 MB memory cards. Well, the computer is MUCH FASTER and THE DVD PLAYER FINALLY WORKS!!! Woo-Hoo! $98.00 investment in memory cards saved up from ditching the older Toshiba.

Hope this review helps someone out there that might have had the same problem.

Built-in DVD player


Are you trying to play DVD's you've made or copied yourself or new one's you buy from an actual distributor? Because sometimes self-ripped Cd's & DVD's won't play on a LOT of DVD players. Otherwise it's bad DVD player and you should go get it swapped out if it's not too late.
