Question about Samsung (SC-152) Internal 52x CD-ROM Drive

2 Answers

My CD drive stays open and will not close unless I force it. I noticed it stopped working when I inserted a cd to view some photos from 2005. It was making an ugly noise. A couple days later I noticed this problem that is no longer working. The tray stays open and will not close unless I force it. Do I need to have it repaired at the computer place?

Make sure that its getting enough power
test all the leads that are attached to the drive make sure they have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them including electrical extensions
or control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to cd\dvd rom drives select+ to expand right click on your drive select properties then you can troublehoot it

Replace the drive and install the drivers for it. Computer tech, yes.

My cd drive on my x box 360 wont open


Most likely the disk drive has a loose axle in it. when these are loose they can jam the ejection of the drive which stops it from working as well. There is a switch inside of the xbox that flips when the disk is inserted all the way that tells the xbox there is a disk in it. Forcing it open will only damage the drive more. so its better to have it shipped or fix. If you have a warranty on it, let the company handle the situation, for if you damage it more they will less likely want to fix the problem you made worse.

Denon CD player DCD 920. When using the open/close button once, the CD-door opens but when it is open, without any waiting time, it immediately closes again. If i operate manually the open/close switch on...


Off the power, and plug off the switch, and try opening it manually. DO NOT force open it. I don't think it would close back since it has no electricity already.

I was given a cd of files to view. i don't want to appear stupid....but how do i view and hear it?


Insert disk in cd tray & close the drawer, if auto-run is enabled an action window will pop up, select open folder to view files. There's a tick box, lower left, tick here to perform this action each time this type of media inserted will set your computer up to open to view each time you insert this type of disk. Other route..
Start- my computer- right click on CD-rom- open.If there are media files, when you right click you can select Open-with..This lets you choose your player, windows media player is a good option.
Hope this sheds some light.

Cd/dvd drive won't stay shut


I have the dv9000z. If I do NOT push the DVD drive tray all the way in until it CLICKS shut, then it OPENS again after 1-2 seconds. This is normal. I have found that most times when I close the DVD tray drive, I am not pushing it in far enough, because the top of the DVD tray is rubbing against the laptop's case. If I just press down VERY SLIGHTLY and push the DVD tray in, the tray will fully close and CLICK shut. This works for me. Good luck.

My cd/dvd opens then closes


> I've already replaced it once

Well, I've seen CD-drives that would re-open, when you try to close them -- it is _falsely_ detecting a "jam" as the tray is closing, and then just re-opens the tray, rather than "forcing" itself to close.

Replacing the CD-drive is the only way to fix that type of "false-positive" jam-detection conditions.

But, since you've done that, either you were unlucky-enough that the replacement drive was also "defective", or, you have a computer-virus on your computer that is maliciously issuing commands to the CD to "open-the-tray".

Illumination not working when faceplate is open.


Wire braid out to the faceplate has got a parcially broken wire on it. Sony referes to it as a flexible circuit board. Part can be purchased from sony directly, an on a one to 10 scale to replace about a five.But it does involve taking your radio apart. So if you are handy at electronics. you can look it over. If you have doubts let a professional do it.
