Default Fitted New Sat Nav DVD drive still not working

I got a refurbed dvd drive from a guy on ebay who fits new laser to them.

Have you contacted the guy you bought the unit from? What does he say? I'd start there.

Well i did contact him and he asked me to send it back so i took the unit out and low and behold as i slide the drive out the large blue ribbon connector was not connected.
So after all looks like i did not connect it properly when i first changed the drive DOH !
When i fitted it back in the unit worked perfectly i feel a right idiot.

At least it was an easy, no-cost fix (other than your pride).
