No matter what type of laptop you own or how you use it, the CD-ROM or DVD drive is an important part of the unit. With the CD or DVD drive in place, you can play your favorite music or watch your favorite movies, so when that CD or DVD player stops working it is important to get it back in service as soon as possible.
1.Locate the bypass hole on the CD-ROM drive. There is a very small hole, generally located underneath the eject button, on every CD-ROM drive. Unbend a paper clip and insert it into the hole until the CD tray pops out. 2.Remove any CD that is in the tray and replace it with a CD laser lens cleaner. These laser lens cleaners are available at computer shops and electronics retailers. 3.Run the laser lens cleaning program, then try to play a CD again. If that CD fails to play, replace it with another CD and try again. 4.Shut the computer down and remove the AC power cord if cleaning the laser lens does not resolve the issue. Turn the laptop upside down and slide the battery release lever to the unlocked position. 5.Remove the battery and set it aside. Then locate the screws that hold the CD-ROM drive in place and remove those screws. Slide the CD-ROM drive out of the bay, then slide it back into the bay until it snaps securely into place. Replace the screws that hold the drive in place, turn the laptop back on and try to read the CD again. 6.Log on to your computer and right click on the "My Computer" icon. Select "Properties" from the menu and click on the "Hardware" tab. Click the "Device Manager" button and expand the CD-ROM section. Right click on the CD-ROM and choose "Update Driver" from the menu to download and install the latest device driver from the CD-ROM manufacturer.
I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya
First check to see if your CD-ROM drive is detected in My Computer. If it is detected, it could be that your CD-ROM drive lens is dirty. You can clean it using a CD lens cleaner available on the market. The more risky one is opening your CD-ROM drive and clean the lens using a cotton damp in a little alcohol, it works for me.
When the CD player loads properly and still reads as no disk this indicates that the player lens (Optical device which reads the disk information) Is either dirty or bad. The only option you have is to get a disk lens cleaner and run it on the system. Once you run it, it is supposed to work if the lens is not spoilt. Otherwise you will just have to replace the lens by taking it to a repairer. Hope this solution has been helpful?
how long have you been using this player? The problem should be from the lens (laser).
The lens is weak and that's why it cannot read/load Cd's.
a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does
the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you
would have to change the whole drive completely to a brand new one.
By so doing your player would play all Cd's with no problem at all.
CD/DVD ROM drives like yours employs two lasers to work properly, one for CD read function and the other for DVD read function.
It seems that your laser for DVD reading is either dirty or damaged.
Try an optical drive cleaner, if that does not fix it, you are going to have to replace the drive. If you have warranty then replace it or have it
fixed. However, if your warranty has expired then the best thing to do is
to buy a new one. They are not expensive these days so the price
difference between fixing it and buying new should not be huge.
A lens cleaner disk should be available from most computer shops.
I assume you have proper software for DVD video playback like PowerDVD, VLC media player etc.
Try another DVD. Maybe the DVD you are using is dirty. If DVD is OK then try a CD ROM lens cleaner. It is readily available at computer retail shops. Follow the instructions on the package to clean the DVD lens. If cleaning does not help there is not much you can do at home. Take it to an authorized service center.
your DVD ROM lens has became weak. and it cannot be repaired. But
if you manage to open the DVD ROM clean the dust in it & it will
start working again but be careful remember that no power should be
attached to ROM. or you can buy a lens cleaner from market and try that. pls rate my solution thankyou
This is usually caused by dirty drive lens, too scratched CDs or CD burnt at faster speed than your ROM can read. (I am assuming that your pc detect the CD drive and has no hardware conflict with it).
Try reading an unscratched prerecorded (original CD), if it does not read this as well then your lens are dirty, try using a CD lens cleaner if these dont work then you need to open your ROM and use a highly volatile organic lens cleaner chemical.
