If you have read the above posts, I'd allow as I have given up on the 787. I took the cover off, and saw what I thought was pretty decent quality material. As they say, "it should work", but it doesn't. I noticed that it got very hot, compared to other electronic equipment I have owned. I tried using it with the cover off, and it ran a lot cooler, and actually worked. A few times. When recording, I could see the reflection of the laser as it burned onto the disk. The laser would come on for a second or so, then it would appear to wait 15-30 seconds, then come on for a second or two. My SWAG is that they buffer a bunch of data, then record it in a burst. Keeps the laser from getting too hot?
To your question, have you cleaned the laser? You can purchase cleaning 'disks' that have some sort of fluffy thing that wipes the laser lense. Or, you can take it all apart, and use your cleaner of choice. What can it hurt?
I did find a LG burner locally back in the early part of the year, but, wasn't going to fix something that was 'refurbished to brand new condition'. Well, I guess it actually was refurb'd, but it factory brand new condition is not saying a lot, no?
