My BenQ DW1625 BBIA fails to recognize any inserted media. Otherwise appears to be fully functional. Accepted firmware upgrade. I’m stalled short of disassembling the unit at this point.
I’ve searched here and it seems to be a longstanding problem (various drives) that has never been resolved (other than to RMA the drive if in warranty).
- Are there any disassembly instructions floating around that might lead to reseating the internal cables?
- Is there a service somewhere that repairs units like these?
My notes are below. Thank you in advance for any pointers that you can add to solving this annoying problem.
