Hi there,

What is the full model number of your MDX, please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is the model of the vehicle going to make a difference? I read on the internet that the problem could be in the DVD drive. If the laser head could be cleaned it could resolve the problem, but I was not able to find that article again. I've managed to take out the drive and remove the cover but that is as far as I got. I can not see the laser head and was wondering if there is any info on this. The model of the drive is a Alpine ref # ***** (or P/N 39540-S3V-A520-M1)

Hey, just want to take this opportunity to say that I found the article and how to clean the lens.
Having said that, I hope that I do not get charged the full mount as a resolution was not forwarded.
