Dvd player makes dvd's freeze

The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, the stepper rail motor that has attached worm gear cracks or flattens out causing the laser pickup to jam and the picture to freeze, in order to fix this the whole assembly most be replaced, but this would not be cost effective to do so, far cheaper to replace player.

Pavillion dv9040us plays dvd but not cd.

The drive has a bad audio laser - both the video and the audio lasers use the same lens. You can replace the whole drive for a reasonable cost than having it repaired.

Why is my PS# freezing after 15 minutes when I play a Blu Ray or PS3 game but not when I play PS2 games?

Hi the ps3 and bluray disks make the ps3's gpu work a lot harder and this causes more heat on the gpu chip and this is whats causing you the problem you are getting, now it could just be that you need a new bluray drive fitted, check if you have any warranty left before you get any work done as these faults are covered by warranty for up to 3 years so have a look on the sony webiste and check what warranty they offer, if you have no warranty then your going to need to pay to get it fixed if it is just a case of changing the dvd drive then this wont cost much and is something you could do yourself if you get a repair guide off line and look into how you change the whole dvd drive as it will require software changing so the new drive is accepted, hopefully you only need a new drive but you wont know until after a new drive has been fitted, if you still have the fault after the new drive has fitted then this points towards over heating and if this is the case then you could have problems as this will cost a lot more to have done as it requires the whole ps3 being apart and the gpu's solder reflowing and new heat sink paste fitting, this is a big job and not something you can do yourself.

i hope i have given you some idea of what the fault is and what to expect.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

I can't insert any cd's.

Maybe the laser eye is jammed. It tracks back and forth reading data from the disc.
You may either replace the drive or have it repaired.
I had one on my PC do the same vibrating, clicking noise. It only cost 40.00 to replace.
But for a laptop, you're looking between 60-100 dollars to replace.
You can see how much it would cost to repair first, but my guess is it would be cheaper to replace.



You can buy any drive. go for Samsung \ LG. You can get used drives but now a days they dont cost much so its better to go for a new one. Get it from bestbuy or any local tech shop. Make sure while purchasing you mention drive for notebook.



There is a small hole in the front of the drive next to the button, this hole is the manual release. Use a paper clip, push it into the hole and the slide will release. If the disc is jammed, you may need to pull slightly on the slide when pushing with the paper clip.

Cd dvd drive

Yes its easy to repair / replace the laptop drive. I'm in the UK and charge £30 for a replacement CDRW/DVD and £45 for a DVDRW A new laptop would cost about £300 depending on the make and model. Keep green and get the item repaired.

I hope this is useful please rate the solution as we depend on your feedback.
