Not too difficult

tabs inside of chassis, near front of unit, press in gently. There are two or three of them

remove front panel from chassis

either remove the screws holding the dvd or use the green slider

unhook dvd from cables and power supply

slide out

reverse for installation

make sure you get new drivers from site(like this one) and resist temptation to use cd supplied

Yes, they are basically identical, the latter being a slightly better and newer model with a double data density.

I need to know how to remove a DVD drive for a HP lap top.


If your HP Pavilion DV6000 series laptop computer has a bad DVD drive, use the following steps to replace the drive

Purchase a new DVD drive to replace the old HP drive. You can use any slim DVD drive with a 50-pin ATAPI IDE Interface Connector. You will probably want a DVD burner since the original drive was capable of burning DVDs. The drive I used to replace the HP drive is a LG Black IDE Super-multi Slim Notebook DVD Rewriter - OEM version.

Unplug the power cord from your HP laptop. Remove the laptop battery from the back of the computer. This will eliminate the chance of power damage to your computer

Ground yourself by touching a metal object or touch your screwdriver on the ground while touching part of the metal. Unscrew the DVD drive screw circled in the Step 2 photo. Using a small Phillips head screwdriver turn the screw counter-clockwise until it is completely loosened. You may need to flip the computer over to get the screw to fall out. Put the screw in a safe location for later.

Put a small pointed tip object (a paper clip will also work) into the drive release hole on the face of the DVD drive. Use the hole to pull the drive out from the laptop body.

Remove the mounting bracket from the old DVD drive. There are two small Phillips head screws that need to be removed by turning them counterclockwise. Match the bracket up with the holes on the side opposite of the connection port. Using the two screws you just removed, secure the mounting bracket to the new DVD drive by tightening them in the clockwise direction.
Remove the original HP DVD drive face plate from the old drive. It can be removed by working it back and forth to loosen the faceplate. Once it is loose you should be able to pull the faceplate off.

Do the same for the new drive. Once the DVD faceplate is off, match the tabs of the original HP faceplate up and press in until it clicks into place

The new drive is now ready to install into the HP DV6000 series laptop. There is no need to hook up IDE cables and power cables. The new drive can simply be slid into the HP laptop.

Find the screw from Step 3. Make sure the DVD drive is pressed in all the way. Install the small Phillips head screw in the back of the laptop and tighten by turning clockwise.

Failed Sony RDR-HX900 hard drive. Replacing with new HD?


You need to get an RDR-HX900 service manual either from sony or from a supplier advertising on the internet. Service manuals typically have step-by-step instructions on replacing individual components

We lost the cigarette ac adapter and purchased a new generic one, plugged it in and heard a popping noise. Now we can't get the dvd player powered up again. any suggestions


The end of the plug which gets inserted into the cigarette lighter/power port should unscrew. Inside is a fuse. You need to replace it with the identical size and rating of fuse. Check the unit with an ohm meter for any shorts between both conductors. If the unit is shorted toss it and get a new one. If it isn't shorted it should work with a new fuse. Let me know if you need any more help.

Please follow these steps


Check the power to the CD-ROM drive first. See if the activity LED works. Try to open the tray. If the tray doesn't open the drive does not have power; check the plug connection to the drive inside the case. If it doesn't work, try another one. If you can't get power to the drive, it is most likely dead and needs to be repaired or replaced

  • If you have another system that you can try the drive in, it is a good idea to connect it to the other PC and see if it will be detected there. Bear in mind that moving the drive to a new PC can introduce other variables that might confuse the issue, but I have seen this be a very effective way to isolate the trouble to either the CD-ROM drive or the PC it is installed into. Similarly, if you try another identical (or even just similar) CD-ROM in place of the one not working, that can tell you if the problem is the drive or the drive interface.
