Yesterday i switched some components of my pc and i caught the occasion to clean everything, what i did with the dvd burner is take it out, open the door manually and clean it with compressed air and alchol for the outside. I mounted back my unit and now it doesn’t read any disc, i hear a clicking sound and it doesn’t display any data. If connected to power only it does the same.
I did more, i opened the case, checked if there was something wrong and cleaned the lens before closing up but no news.
The tray with the lens keeps going back and forth for a minute or so until it stops, no matter what i do.
It seems there’s nothing broken… i can’t see the laser light but i read it can be invisible so i can’t say.
After all it’s not that expensive to buy a new one but if possible i’d like to keep the one i have, it’s 2 years old and i didn’t use it often, plus it’s a present.
