Question about NEC Turbo Grafx Express Console

Open Question

My NEC turbo duo isn't playing any cd games. I thought it was the laser. I bought a brand new HOP-M3 laser to replace the original, and it still won't play cd games! What else could be wrong?

SOURCE: not reading some dvds

Could be it does not like the brand of dvd discs, if they are dvd burnt discs. You need to be more specific, is it reading any dvds at all??? If it has no issues with cds, it may not be the driver, but if it is playing up, it would not hurt to try unistalling it and reinstalling also with an updated driver. good luck lilacgerry xxx

My handheld dvd player isn't reading the disc-they just spin really fast


Spray an small drop of safe window cleaner onto a Q-tip. Clean the laser lens carefully and then use the other end of the Q-tip to dry it. Use compressed air on and around the laser lens (do not blow on it). Clean your DVD disc and try again. If it fails again, try using a CD, if it will play a CD and not a DVD your optical pickup assembly is defective. If the CD wont play at all, your optical sled or spindle motor and/or drive is defective.

Most cases if cleaning doesn't fix it, it's cheaper to replace the entire DVD player. All portable DVD players are junk, regardless of brand.

We bought a used play station 2 and it doesn't play the DVD games. We believe that it doesn't have have a memory card could this be why it isn,t working?


First see if it plays cds. If so, try DVD movies. If so, try a game. If it plays cds but not DVD's or games, either the laser needs to be adjusted or replaced. I got a few PS2's from friends that they used ALOT. Turned out the lasers were bad. Memory cards only store game saves and such and don't help with media booting.

Yamaha CDC-765: sometimes skips when playing CDs


The problem is in the laser for sure. Try cleaning with a cd cleaning tool. It's the easiest solution because changing the laser is not always available solution.

it sounds like your laser is either dirty or it needs replaced. when a laser starts to go they usually will play music but not any games or movies.

It wont play games or movies


Laser has to be bad then if its not reading brand new games or dvds. To verify this though get a can of air and gently blow it into the drive to make sure there is no specs of dirt or dust on the laser.

Now try the games and dvds again and if its still happening then the laser needs to be replaced and you can get them fairly cheap off of Ebay.

Your laser lens is going out and needs replacement. Either replace the whole drive (but switch out your old circuit board into the new drive) or buy a new laser and install it in (model number is etched into the bottom of the laser).

You have to switch your old board out of the old drive into the new due to Microsoft having "Keys" locked into each drive so you cant fix your system easily. So remember to keep the boards seperate and switch the old board into the new drive and install the new drice... should fix it nicely.

Xbox360 that doesn't know it is one


I had the same problem,If it is under warranty send it in ,,, if not then you are going to open it up,, plenty of instruction on how to do this online (google it). see what type of dvd drive you have and then go on ebay and purchase an identical replacment drive. once you recieve it open up YOUR ORIGINAL DVD DRIVE and unplug the green motherboard looking thing on top(Big ONE) there should be four little tabs on this. put it to the side . now open up the new dvd drive and repeat but make sure you dont get these cards switched up.put the old key in the new dvd drive , plug in all 4 tabs,bottom one first. put back together and install back into xbox360. put xbox 360 back together put in disk and enjoy

I have an X-Box that either can't (or won't) play X-Box gmaes but it'll play CD's just fine. Any ideas as to how I could solve this problem?


Hi,
You,ll need to replace The DVD Rom Drive.
The Standard/Original Xbox. only has a single laser unit. which doubles up as a cd/dvd reader. if it,s not reading xbox games, but playing cds. the laser isn,t powering up enough to read the dvd format/games.
Eject the DVD Tray. If it,s perfectly arched shape in the centre. then it,s a thomson drive. if the arch is slightly rounder it,s philips dvd drive. if it has 2 holes left/right in the drive drawer, it,s a samsung. You should have a straight swap over with the drive, it,s only the hard-drive that is eeprom locked to the motherboard.
unlike the 360 which is eeprom locked to the dvd.
try a disk head cleaner first of all.
