My Philips DVD R/RW Drivde DVD8631/96(manufactured 2005)has died

\015 My Philips DVD R/RW drive, DVD8631/96(manufactured 2005), has died. It doesn't want to do anything. No light, no power to the drawer. I've removed it, cleaned up the connections and reconnected but no joy. I did briefly get a green light but the moment I pressed the open/close button it died again. Any guidance?\015

Answers :

Honestly, head over to a local computer shop and grab yourself a new OEM DVD RW. It should cost you somewhere in the range of $30. Don't go somewhere like BestBuy, as you will get charged obscene prices.

Make sure it has the right connectors, as many DVD drives are SATA these days. If you're not sure which you have, just bring it with you, and the staff should help you select the correct type.
