The lens slides on a steel rod, the steel rod is locked using a screw at the bottom end, remove the screw, tilt the rod and pull it out, the lens is free, remove the connector cable and replace the lens module. its easy but be concious as a slight cut to the connector cable would result in non-working drive

If your computer has a DVD rom or writer then this problem usually occurs. DVD roms or writers are very unreliable when it comes to reading CD's after some time of use the DVD roms do not read CD's but will read DVDs and then if it is a writer it will stop writing all will write and stop before finalizing. This problem is caused by the lens assembly which misaligns after a long time of use or the lens assembly itself no longer focusing correctly. However if you have a CD rom or CD writer then you must start by cleaning it. The cleaning of CD roms can be easy or slightly complicated if the lens is covered with residue that is moisture related. That is the lens could have accumulated dirt mixed with moisture then dried up. This would need manual cleaning using a cotton bud with some of the liquid that comes with the Disc cleaners you clean the lens until it is squeaky clean. Do this being careful not to scratch. But first try cleaning with the disc cleaner. If it doesn't work then do the manual way. If all this does not work then change the lens assembly or buy a new DVD rom or writer.

Not reading all kinds of disc sony and benq cdrw


If your CD/DVD writer is not reading disks at all then there is problem in your drive's lens.
To fix it you have to open the writer and clean the lens .
If you don't want to clean the lens manually then there is a disk called "CD lens cleaner" available in the market , buy it and insert the disk into your drive.
This will automatically clean the lens
But if you want to do it yourself then please follow the below steps.
First of all take out the CD/DVD writer out and remove all the screws and slide the cover to open it.
As you see the lens don't touch it with your finger but clean it with cotton cloth. After cleaning it place the cover and close it.
Now try any disk in it. If it works then you are done.

But if it is not reading the disks then you have to change it.

Hope the above information is helpful to you.
Thanks for using fixya
