Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

SAVV LOH-5120 The disc drive does not accept discs, ejecting them after failing to recognise them. I have tried cleaning the lense but to no avail. Is there anything I can do or do I need to get a replacement unit. If so, does anyone know where I can get replacement disc drive from for this unit and model. Thanks Simon

Seems that the head is not working, there is no laser scanning and the possibility that the laser head can be defective.
Now certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it is not read. Hence it will reject. So it is ideal to clean manually the laser head eye using a cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board

Why My Ps3 Keeps Ejecting BD?


This is a bad drive. I'd replace it immediately before trying anymore disks lest it damage the disks. Usually this occurs when there is a read error. It is also possible there is a disk stuck in the drive, jammed inside, the sensors, sensing the second disk automatically ejects the one you put in. Either way remove the drive and replace it with a PS3 replacement drive. (Note a way to test if it's a bad bluray lense is to stick a DVD in the drive. If it accepts the DVD and plays, then it can only read the DVDs and not the blu ray disks. If this is the case you've blown the blu ray laser, it still needs to be replaced.) If all else fails take it to a tech place and have them diagnose the problem.

Ps3 not reading discs


Hi,
This is a common problem on the PS3 unfortunately and is caused by a faulty blue-ray drive. Unit will have to go back to Sony for service.

You should try a DVD cleaning disk first to be sure that dirt on the laser lense is not causing the issue.

You can also open the case and clean the laser lense with a Q Tip and an alcohol cleaning solution. If you plan on opening the case at any stage please ensure the unit is disconnected from its power supply.

If this fails and you are confident with electronics there are several videos on YouTube showing how to replace the drive if you choose to order it and do it yourself.

See an example below.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks.

Optical disc drive malfunction


The optical drive checks the TOC (Table Of Contents) when you insert a disk. If it can't read it, (for any reason), it will eject the disk. This may be due to a dirty laser, or that the laser has failed.
Try using a laser cleaning disk, (these are available from most high street retailers0. If that does'nt cure the problem you will have to get the drive replaced.

Wont accept disc


Try this....after a lot of frustration and research, what i found on the internet for this problem was usless. I tried holding down the eject button for 15 seconds to reset the disc drive, still it would'nt accept the disc. As i literally picked up the phone to ring sony, as the ps3 was on standby i pressed the eject button multiple times and heard 2 beeps each time, still the system stayed on standby. After that i then tried just putting the disc in as normal as its on standby and the system booted automatically and accepted my disc. I hope this helps others, as mine now works perfectly.

Will not record disc-to-disc


The first thing to try is cleaning the lenses,sounds obvious,but i think thats why its continuing to try :initialising: if that fails the lense that reads the disc or both likely need realigning most problems that acure whith any cdplayers ect are down to the lenses.
