No output to rear jacks

It's hard to do this long distance, but I have a feeling the problem is with your disc or your laser, not your connections. A distant third possibility is the deck's transport.

First, plug the deck into an amp, and make sure you have connected it to the right place. (It is very easy to get tripped up by tape inputs and tape monitors.)

I suspect that you accidentally erased the disc. So let's check. Play an MD that you are SURE has something on it and see if anything at all is coming through the amp and speakers. Be sure to look at the display to see if the disc is actually playing a track.

Then try recording something on the disc you have. Be sure to enable the disc to record. The little white tab on the bottom left has to be closed. If it is open the disc will not record. Make sure it is all the way closed, too. Do this by opening it and then closing it with a thumbnail or small screwdriver.

When you record, see if the record meter shows that something is actually going into your deck.

You should also see if the metal protective tab is still there (front right center), and try to jiggle it to see that it is not stuck. Don't force it - just jiggle it. Memorex discs are famous for having that part fail. That part has to slide down for your disc to play or record. This will make a lot more sense if you take the lid off your deck and watch the mechanism work.

1) Be sure there is something on your disc.
2) With the lid off see if the disc is actually turning.
3) Look at the display to see if it tells you that the disc is playing.
4) In case you erased your disc, try recording something on it or on a different disc). Check the display as it does so, and look at the transport to see if anything is turning.

If nothing is turning or moving, it MAY be dirt or it may be grease where grease shouldn't be or no grease where grease should be. That is unlikely, but check it out. What do you have to lose?

If everything is moving but nothing records and nothing plays back, your laser is dead. And they are not cheap. Fortunately, there are a gazillion MD decks on eBay.

When all else fails, read the operating instructions -

Probably viruses. Try to load Windows in Safe mode, if everything is OK, there is a problem with system or viruses. Power on laptop, press F8 and hold until you get Windows loading options, and choose Safe mode.

I have hp 530 laptop .but my brother change poweron password in my laptop .he forgot the password..can i solve this problem?

You need to remove the access panel on the back of the laptop, locate the jumper labeled E49 and remove from positions 1 and 2 and put it on 2 only. Replace the cover and boot up, this should get you past the password.

Please leave feedback if you find this helpful. Thanks.
