My DVD player is not working.tosibia satellite P205D-S7438

\015 My DVD player is not working. I can hear it spinning but it doesn't read\015

Answers :

Try different cd's and dvd's in the drive. If its not reading anything at all, then I would suggest taking a q-tip and spraying a bit of glass cleaner on it.\015\012\015\012With the damp Q-tip, wipe off the laser in the dvd drive gently. This will make sure that its not dust or dirt that is interfering with the laser.\015\012\015\012Now try a few cd's and dvd's and if the drive still doesn't read, then you know for sure at that point the dvd drive is bad and you'll need to replace it.
