DVD laser lens cleaning
    #6096781 - 09/24/06 10:56 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

I live in an extremely dusty area. When my external DVD recorder stopped recognizing that a disk was mounted, I assumed it was from a buildup of dust on the lens that was preventing the drive from "seeing" the disk. I want to clean the lens but I have no idea where the lens is located or what it looks like.

The drive is a Pacific Digital External Multi Format Recorder. Can any of you help me locate the laser lens?

Thanks - dog

Aye, but I do not know where the bloody lens is. I open the tray and look in the drive but I do not know what I am looking for. What does the lens look like?

A small circular window about as big around as a pencil. They make special cd lens cleaners... basically a CD that has a section of soft cleaning material built into it. I have never had an optical drive come back from the dead by cleaning the lens...
