error message cdi 220

Hey all my immaculate looking fully boxed CDi is a dud, well i think it is! someone please help me! the drive sometimes sticks needs a bit of help opening closing etc but that doesnt bother me, its the fact that with whatever disc i insert i get "error" on the little LCD screen on the front of the unit, i don't know whats causing it, so far i've only tried audio cd's as i'm yet to acquire CDi games

Could it be the dish needs lifting, read it on another thread? that and maybe using a few good elastic bands to sort out the tray issue

This video (posted in a different thread on here) may or may not be useful (It's for the 470 but may give you some ideas).

Essentially you want to take out the CDROM drive and lube the motors etc and clean the laser to resolve this... I'm no expert though and not had to do this myself on any players I've owned.

Repaired it today, well half repaired it i lifted the bit that spins the discs ever so slightly and it works now, eventually if i can be bothered i will replace the NV ram but i need to replace the drive belt that opens and closes the door as mine is loose and worn, still at least i know it works properly now :)
