This has "fixed" my SACD and DVD issues on my Denon 3930 a few times over the years.
Ah nice! I wil will have to try that. It was in the path of an air filter that didn't always get cleaned right on schedule...
From what I've found through reserch though is that this model has had wuite a few users that have had the same issue. Even with the LG BD300, on another thread inthis forum, many users are having this issue and LG has issued a service repair for that model...
It would be nice if they did the same for this one! Then we all could get new Drives and Not have to worry about it.
I will try that and get back to you on it! Thanks for the suggestion though!EDIT:
Okay I tried cleaning the Lense (both) and unfortunately it had no affect. I even tried unplugging a few of the ribon wire sets and plugging them back in to ensure the best connection and still got the "Disc Error"... I looked at the PCB and a few other components inside and everything looks fine. I know that doesn't mean that nothing is wrong but how in the world does something just Stop Working..... I'm just venting so sorry...
If anyone could help me find a new (or used) drive or completely compatable alternative drive for this unit I would be grateful!
I really don't understand this. What I did today was take the drive out, Took off the Top portion of the Shell and reconnected it to the player (Power off of course) and took the Stablizing magenet out of the top. I then plugged in the player, turned the pwr on and oen the tray. Put a "previously working Blu-Ray disc in the tray and the magenet on top to simulate proper working conditions. Closed the tray and casted a shawdow over the Disc to see if it even had working lasers... BOTH of the laser work and Blu-ray laser gets focused on the Disc BUT spins up a total of 2 times and Shows the "Disc Error" Messege...
I really don't understand why It's not working if the tray is spinnnign correctly and the Lense ends up focused and positioned correctly to read the disc data.... It's very mind boggling! It seems that no one really knows to much about the mechanics of the Blu-ray player anywhere else.
How do things actually work inside? Could I possibly just find another Player with the Same Version of Blu-ray Laser and install only the Mechanical Laser? Or do these symptoms point more directly at the pCB Mainboard inside the drive? Maybe that way the player itself wouldn't have any issues detecting the drive all together, ultimately getting ride of the "Disc Error" issue.
