A) The optical eye in the optical drive, (DVD burner) may be dirty. Use a cleaner disk made for this purpose, or a can of compressed air for computers. (Computer off, and unplugged from power)

B) The optical drive may be at the end of it's 'Life Cycle'. This is a mechanical device, and they are rated in hours of usage.

DVD burners are relatively inexpensive, and easy to install, should you find yours is at the end if it's life cycle.
If you would like recommendations, and/or a step by step in replacing the drive, please post in a Comment.

I purchased a Lite-On unit from a large chain store that begins with a W over 5 years ago.
Cost approximately $45. Had I have had patience I could have ordered it online for $28 plus shipping.

These units are rated with the same features as units that cost 3 to 5 times as much, and have the same quality.
(Still works great after 5 years, knock on wood. Tapping head right now, lol!)

If it keeps connecting and disconnecting, it could be either the power adapter or the motherboard, but chances are it's the power adapter (and that's the cheaper solution too). You can usually get a new power adapter for $15 or $20, and that should take care of your problem.

If your menus on the TV and other inputs look good then it is probably a resolution setting on your Directv box that needs to be changed. To get HD it needs to be set at 720p or 1080i. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks....

i would check your ignition system. you would need a meter for this but look for broke or loose connections. if it was a fuel problem i dont think it would just start up after 20 minutes. or you might try your ignition switch. if its shorting or something then ya well it would cut your engine off real quick

Lens Knocking Against The CD - All CDs skip or diginoise then fail.


Take the small back cover off and take some electrical grade contact cleaner and spray all around the lens area, that worked for me.

No disc error showing up-takes 20 tries to bring up dvd


Maybe the laser is unable to focus on the smaller pits and lands of a DVD disk but can see the relatively large pits and lands from a CD just fine. This may be solved by using a CD/DVD cleaner disk. It's a disk with small brushes on it that attempt to brush dust from the laser's lense. They don't always work but that's what I'd try.
