2080 Machine, DVD drive, on start up will click and clack for long time and them will display error that "Media is unreadable and please eject".
This happens in all cases i.e. No disk, blank disc, Prerecorded movie, etc. So it seems the drive is unable to detect any media or no media.
Opened the unit up, and cleaned the laser lens, the spindle/hub gasket. On viewing the DVD unit on start up, it does spin the disk, start and stop about a dozen time and then fails. All other HD and tuner functionality works. Is it indicative of failure of Laser emitter???
I am curious as how the unit detects if their is media inserted in the drive or it is empty, as currently even when drive is empty it thinks there is an "unreadable disk". I have reset the unit using all possible ways, and it does not change this behavior.
PS: I have many other DVR units, but I am trying to fix it as to understand how the unit works, will appreciate any input, particularly from Master Wajo.
You got to be nuts; you want me to pay to watch commercials?
