Customer Question
I have a samsung p231...
I have a samsung p231 dvd player and I put in a DVD and it loads, then says no disc, while making a weird noise. I have found a loose white wheel that moves all over the place and I know where it goes cause I put it back into its place and the dvd player would read the disk, but the wheel will just pop out of place again. How can I fix this with minimal expense???
