Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the "...home cinema..."

Thank you
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

Appreciate the additional information.

And the part number of the DVD Drive Mechanism please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What you mean the part number, you should know thats why i gave you the dvd number
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

The Service Manual lists the Part Number as AH97-01831A but would want to confirm with you if you have manually checked this mechanism.

Considering the age, this part is no longer readily available although there are substitutes and potential replacements.

Do want the Part Numbers of this substitutes?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
please, i hope is going to work for it
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

The compatible part numbers for the AH97-01831A are AH59-01615E, AH96-01615K, AH59-01881A and AH97-02155A.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is any of this is going to work for it?

These are the listed substitutes; i.e. mechanically, physically and electrically compatible with the AH96-01615K hence would work.
