DVR quit reading - recommendations for fix or new?

Posted by marys1000 (My Page) on

Last night I put a CD in the DVR and it came up but then froze when I hit play and now doesn't seem to want to read at all. It's trying to read but eventually defaults to an error - this cd won't work, try another (I hear the faint little click click click as it tries).
Is there a simple fix? Some sort of cleaning gizmo maybe?
Should I buy another and if so any recommendations? I haven't used this one much but it is probably 5 or 6 years old and was fairly inexpensive to begin if I remember correctly.

Hands down (BTW, what does "hands down" mean?) I would say you should buy another. Which one to recommend is the much more difficult question.

Sounds like a dead laser. Replace it.
