When you got your new laser did you use Lens Changer to change it to the new laser you got? Make sure the cable to the MoBo isn't burn out and re connect all the connections

When you got your new laser did you use Lens Changer to change it to the new laser you got?
answer: no I did not and I did not know I had to it was a hd7 laser that was in their prior and now the new laser is a HD7 so do I still need to run the lens changer? if so where can I find that at?

when you say cable to mobo do you mean the laser ribbon cable that goesa from the laser to mobo? how do you test or know if that is good or not? I have went over the connrection's many time's it is not that for sure.
could be the spin motor. try change it from a wreck if you've got one.I have had a few that get gummed up or hairs & things get around the spindle.It should spin pretty easy if spun by hand.if it does .might be the drive i.c.
