Estimate On Getting Sat-nav Fixed

Recommended Posts

In relation to my other thread HERE concerning the satnav not working, I was wondering if anyone here knows about the system in detail.

The screen and system work ok, it tilts, turns on and off, and you can access the menus concerning colour display, brightness etc. It just doesn't recognise that theres a satnav disc in there. It says "Check disc/insert disc" or something along those lines. They tried a new disc, but it wont recognise that either. Theres an autoelectrician looking at it today, and he said that the disc is spinning, but the laser doesnt seem to be reading it, it spins, cant find the disc and stops spinning. So to me it does sound like a laser problem.

Has anyone here had this problem? How much does a new disc-reader unit (*ie, the bit in the boot) cost?

Just like to get a bit more info in case they say it cant be fixed.

The sat nav unit in the boot costs about £2000.

Has the lens been cleaned? Not sure if it would be possible to replace just the drive mech. as I haven't taken one apart before. It could just use a standard IDE drive.
