I replaced older smps with a new one but CD and DVD drivers didnt work. What will i do? More about : dvd time Best solution fzabkar a c 229 G Storage February 18, 2012 6:15:19 PM I haven't examined a recent DVD PCB, but it could be that an overvoltage has taken out a protection diode. If that's the case, then there may be a simple, no-cost DIY solution. See http://www.users.on.net/~fzabkar/HDD/TVS_diode_FAQ.html HDDs have 12V and 5V TVS diodes which go short circuit when the drive experiences a sustained overvoltage. If you could supply a photo of the component side of your DVD/CD PCBs, I may be able to identify the component for you, assuming it exists. inzone a c 119 G Storage February 18, 2012 6:33:09 PM CD/dvd drives cost about $20 so it might be better just to get a new one.
