I would think some kind of problem was introduced into the drive during reassembly after the video chip was replaced. Who did the work? It may well be they owe you a further repair. If they are unwilling to do so I would remove the drive and check for problems with the cable or pins on the drive itself. If still no joy you may have to replace the drive or use an external for burning and just use the internal for reading. Ralph
