Is there any way to rejuvinate a CD drive? - Mac Applications & Software

We have several tray-loading imacs whose CD drives have quit reading CDs. Is there anything I can do other than replace the CD drives? The drives are too expensive to be cost effective....

    Try using a laser lens cleaner available from any electronics store
    first before you declare them as dead. Approxamate cost about $10.

    There is some information in the iMac service manual. There is a
    cleaning procdure in this manual. See:
    http://home.earthlink.net/~gamba2/manuals.html

    Download the manual quickly. The service manuals move around alot.

    I think these are laptop cd-rom drives. Try ebay. Take apart the
    iMac and see who built the drive and buy it on eBay.
