As part of trying to fix my not working Liteon SHM-165H6S, I took it apart to clean the laser assembly. I put it back together and it just sits there and hums. Green light comes on, door wont open, nothing happens.
I took it apart again and at the back of the burner I found a loose 3/4 inch round belt. I looked closely at the open burner and I cant find anything that looks like a motor shaft, and nothing that looks like it is a power drive.
Googling for pictures of the Liteon, I got a few references that made me think the Liteon is all direct drive, but if thats true, how could a spare belt be in the back? The belt does feel “old” as if it had been used, but its not broken.
I assume that in taking the case off and the circuit boards off, that somehow the belt got removed?
PS–My original problem that got fixed is labeled “3 Burners Failed in a Row” and originally this burner worked until the computer could not see it because of a software conflict. I took it apart to clean the laser in case that was the problem.
