Hi guys,

Not sure of the best place to post this... I have a 19" LCD TV/DVD combo unit and recently the drive stopped spinning properly. I got a replacement drive off the supplier and connected it up and it has the same problem. The spins intermittently about a quarter of a rotation every 2-3 seconds.

The supplier has given me a replacement board and several cables which have all been replaced but it still has the same problem. They've also tested both drives and they work fine in other units.

Everything else on the TV works perfectly.

Anyone got any ideas? It's driving me nuts!

The hazard of all in one devices. Same thing happened with the old tele-videos in the 90's.

Playback mechanics always die. IMO you are gonna be best off replacing it if a built in player is important to you or getting a $30 dvd player to go with it.
