Hi Robert,First of all, thank you for posting your question here at Fixya.You may try the steps below to resolve the issue.Assuming that the disc is good.1.Clean the lens.
-Sometimes because of dust and any fine foreign objects the optical lens can'tread any disc. If you have a CD Lens cleaner
, play it to the unit. If this isnot available you may manually clean the optical lens. Open the cover andgently clean the eye of the lens by smooth,clean,soft cotton buds. Be carefulwhile doing this, just a gentle stroke only.2.Check the ribbon
- Checkthe ribbon connected to the lens from the main board for scratch, damage
. Once it has anopen line then of course the lens can't read the disc, this is because of themovement of the optical lens back-and-forth. Also try to erase the contact by pencileraser. If you've done the steps above and the symptoms still there then thenext step requires you a little knowledge in soldering technique and readingthe ohmmeter.3.Check the spindle motor
-Check the spindle motor that spin the disc with an ohmmeter. You can test itusing the ohmmeter (x1) even it is connected on the lens assembly.Good motor
- reading should be fairly high and itwill spin. Bad motor
-reading will drop to low resistance and will not spin or spin slowly.HopeI helped you.Have a nice day! Thanks for using Fixya
