Just remove that PS simulator app. And then tell what happened. Maybe the app is playing with your drive.


Tell us "

1. can you tell us if the tray is opening and closing normally or not ??

2. Does the CD/DVD in the tray spins and then stop with out any result ?

3. Which CD/DVD are you trying to test the drive ?


1-Tray is working normally

2-i used many movies , mp3 and ps2 game dvd

3-:-/According to sound i think there is no spinning.:-/



ok so, according to you there is no spinning.

Now its clear that some parts have moved inside your DVD Drive.

What I am expalining below is not for newbies (please consider doing it if you are confident enough)

Step 1 : Open the DVD Drive cover.

Step 2 : Clean the lens with a cotton cloth (with some camera lens cleaner).

Step 3 : Move the lens manually back and forth with your hands.

Step 4 : Look for loose connections, screws etc and tighten it. (don't put your force on it)

Step 5 : Replace the TRAY and Cover it back.

Step 6 : Install it on your computer and see if things go RIGHT!

If the above procedure doesnot help take risk in doing the following :
