    How To Troubleshoot DVD Drives Fast


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    You really enjoy those DVD movies and games and the last thing you need or want is to experience problems with your dvd drive.

    To prepare for the possibility of having your DVD drive leaving you out in the cold one morning,we will discuss problems that may cause DVD failure as well as the procedures you should take to correct these problems.

    As with all drives,be sure to double check the failure. If the DVD drive will not read the DVD,try running another DVD in the drive.Make sure the DVD has no scratches and is clean.

    Visually inspect the drive if the drive is external and if the drive is internal,check the computer.Check to see if the computer has good ventilation to help keep it cool.Here are the common DVD problems with their solutions.

    DVD DRIVE HAS NO POWER

    First..For external drives that have no power,first check to see if anything or anyone has caused the power cord to become unplugged.Rule out the wall outlet by plugging in another device such as a radio and see if it plays.

    Second...If you've proven the wall outlet to be good,but you still don't have power,check the surge protector for any signs of damage.If the surge protector is good,check the cord.

    Third..If you're certain the surge protector or wall outlet is providing power,double check the cord by plugging it in a few times.If no power is present,you will have to replace the cord or the drive itself.

    Internal DVD drives receive their power from the connector from the power supply.Try another connector to the drive. if the internal DVD drive still does not receive power after using another connector,the drive is faulty.

    DRIVE HAS POWER BUT TRAY WON'T OPEN

    You may experience the tray failing to open.Should this happen,press the button a couple times to see if it will open.If the tray fail to open,reboot your computer and try to open the tray.
