    do you know what kind of chip is in it, check to see if not. If it has a mod chip it should boot. I dealt with chipzone and am happy, you might want to call them about repairs to this unit. good luck

    have you tried this guide for the laser adjustment, there's quite a few little tricks you can do to keep the laser going. it may be on it's way out but this will help extend the life a little bit longer. What happens is if the laser does't recognize the disk fast enough while it's in the boot up stage then it goes to the browser/configuration menu and in my experience with most chips they will then not boot properly at that point. what i did to figure this out was go into the browser and load a dick and do a count to see how long it takes to recognize it in the browser. if it's more than a 10 count(you know 1 one thousand, 2 one thousand 3 one thousand and so on) then thats too long, i have found certain media works better than others also with a bad laser. memorex dvd-r is best usually not cheap no name media. anyway here is the laser fix up page give it a try.

    the adjusting lens angle part 1 is usually a pretty good fix for most, but if the laser is really going then tweaking up the voltage definitly works but is the last resort. good luck
