Possible to buy a laser lens?

Anyone know if it’s possible to buy lenses write drives? Where? I have contacted the maker of the drive (BenQ) and they don’t sell them, only fix them under warrenty. They won’t even take my money.

Thanks

i take it your drive is out of warrenty?

it maybe cheeper to buy a new drive.

Yes you can buy them but they cost as much as a new drive and some times more.
It is cheaper to buy a new drive, besides you get another warranty and the latest hardware/firmware.

well, you could always buy the same drive off ebay and replace the laser lol… or just use the one you bought.

But remember once you fit the new laser you will need all the test equipment to set it up for focus and tracking.

even a new pickup would cost more than a new burner.

Easy choice.
