How do you do a hard reset? I am not an electronic tech. I took the cover off, turned the recorder on and tried to eject again. Nothing. I don't know how to get the disk out of the tray. Do I have to take the front off too? How do you release the tray manually?
Thanks, I have a dvd recorder lvw 1105GHC and seems not to have any but the door. when I push the eject button i just hear the sound but not open the tray. So, I push the eject button and at same time pull out the plastic door tray with a nail. It worked this time

Re: dvd recorder repair
Remove the cover of LVW and access the dvd assy,unscrew the 4 screws
holding the dvd assy to the LVW bottom. Remove the top and bottom shield
(also 4 screws)and remove the top black plastic cover (4 screws). You
will access the dvd spindle. Remove the dvd

your disc reader is dirty and needs cleaned..this can be done 2 ways.. one is to buy a can of electronic dusting spray, use the wand attatched to the nozzle .. stick the wand into the dvd slot and spray short bursts into the center area of the slot( dvds record and play from the center-out) the other is to find the screws that hold the cover on the unit(usually phillips head) and remove them..carefully remove the entire cover exposing the inner works of the recorder, again using the duter spray, clean the entire inside of the unit..paying close attention to the lens area of the reader..make sure not to blast it too hard and loosen the base..just enough to dust it off..then replace the cover and run the unit normally.. these units are quickly showing up at resale shops everywhere as folks are getting new digital recorders that record to a hard drive..so you may find a replacement there..I have several..
Had the same problem. took cover off, cleaned the recording heads. Also look on the left and right of casett chassie.You'll see to thin green strips sticking up with a black elctronic device. Chech to see if it is aimed at the clear plastic pin near the little black plastic gear in the middle. mine was out of alignment on the left one. Works know. Good luck
Thank you for the offer. I will bear it in mind should I need further assistance.
I solved the problem by removing the cover and loosen the clips where the disc tray is and slid the release tray and by pressing the eject button, the tray ejected the disc.
I have tried other discs by recording, deleting and ejecting and so far the problem has not been experienced again.
The electronic procedure: Switch off the unit at the wall plug. On
the front panel, hold in the <RECORD> and <EJECT> buttons
at the same time, and keeping them held, switch on the power at the
wall again. Keep holding the buttons until the disc tray opens.
By pressing the Power button for >10 seconds you can force the unit to turn off. Immediately as the unit does, press the disk eject button and the defective DVD can be removed. Don't put it back in, or the problem may repeat!
remove the cover and see if the dvd run, if not you got a motor problem or a motor drive one,if yes then try cleaning the reading eyes(pickup)by blowing dry air (get a can at radio shack)check for goods, if dosent work, take it to a shop for a repair thats all you can do, is a job for a tech....good luck
I am pursuing the exact problem above. I have found a not so hi tech solution. I firmly rap on the top above the disc drawer. This is while Close is being displayed and the drawer is in. If you hear some spinning and load displays it should now work. It may be back to cycling again on the next ejection though. Technically I figure it may be a sticky magnetic reed switch or what ever they use to detect the drawer position. Mine displays either open or close when it starts to cycle.
