    My multi dvd writer door opens every time I insert a disk it opens by itself


    Check for loose contact, dry solder at the power connector end, try cleaning the lens, most of the times the rubber belt that is used to drive the tray gets loosened due to time factor and usage

    DVD wont initialize, it will not see that a disk has been inserted, no matter what you insert, blank recodable disk or a pre-recorded movie/disk. Has the drive gone bad? is there a fix or a replacement...


    Hi,

    There are three things you can do that will eventually give you a working solution. Depending on the level of problem. Start with 1 progress to 3 until it works.
    1. Use a cleaning disc. (one that use an alcohol based liquid)

    2. If the cleaning disc does not solve it, you can use an ear bud, with some iso-propyl alcohol to clean the DVD lens on the drive directly. (you have to open the player and the drive)

    3. The guaranteed working solution is to replace the DVD drive inside the player. This is quite a simple process, as most players use a standard IDE DVD-ROM or DVD writer.

    You simply remove the face plate, (apply power to the drive, and press eject first) the tray will open. Unclip the tray face, and then with the tray open you can unclip the plastic face plate too.

    Remove the old drive, and fit the new drive by reversing the removal procedure.

    Once everything is assembled you should be able to watch DVD's again. If you can't find a cheap DVD drive locally, try ebay.

    I have done this on over 50 players for my clients in the past. I use LG IDE DVD roms and IDE DVD writers for the DVD recorders, irrespective of brand.

    Let me know how it goes.

    My gsa h54n dvd writer cd not reading but dvd


    Sounds like the drive either doesn't like the disk you are trying to use or the cd laser has burnt out. Try the disk in another machine if you can, if it works ok then replace the drive.
