Lite-On SOHW-1693S23C Problems Help!

My Lite-On SOHW-1693S23C has after a year of use started to show “Power Calibration Error” and is failing to burn discs… Can anyone tell me what this means and how can I rectify this?..Any help appreciated…

More often than not, this error is due to poor quality media. If it IS the drive’s problem, then it’s failing and needs to be replaced. My own 1693 lasted about 6 months under heavy use and abuse. It still works, but not very well except as a paperweight. :wink:

Try some good quality media like TY or Verbatim, if it still does this, replace it.
