Acer aspire 4720z DVD drive not working

\015 I've been using my acer aspire 4720z for about 10 months now. Recently however, my dvd drive stopped working. It started by refusing to eject and I had to use a pin in the little hole beside it to eject. Since then, the only way i can eject is by using the pin in the hole. Also, it has stopped reading cds, dvds, mp3s, everything. Can anyone help Aspire 4270z PC Notebook does read dvd.... but \015\012not cd.. \015\012some times the data cd is shown as audio cd..\015\012if any one solve the problem pls inform me\015\012\015\012thankyou\015

Answers :


it could be a dirty lens. here's a video on the cleaning, its annoyingly loud but shows how to clean the lens with rubbing alcohol.

might want to turn the volume down in advance:

its for a ps2 but the drive is basically the same, and you would clean the lens in the same way.

if this doesn't solve the problem, you would probably have to disassemble the drive completely and get it working properly and put it back together, might want to get the help of a pro for that.

Last option is to replace the dvd drive completely, it will definitely solve the problem, You can buy such a drive from few places, few come to mind, for example, www.ebay.com, www.pchub.com and www.acerparts.com

Let me know how that goes,
