Combo drive not working

\015 My combo drive is not reading any cds, dvds, software, mp3, anything?\015

Answers :

When a rom cat read anything then that means maybe the cable is bad,if the cable is good then u can adjust the variable resistor under the lens then if that doesnt work then u can change the rom but i believed that adjusting the lens variable resistor will solve the problem.
Plz try cleaning the rom with lens cleaner if the problem persists you can try by changing the datacable,if the problem remains then you have to change the rom
