Question about Lite On LVW-5005 DVD Recorder

Dvd recorder repair

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?

    What a coincidence. Mine broke again for the second time this year, and I only got around to taking it apart tonight.

    After pulling the DVD drive out of the unit, look at the front of it. On the left side, under the drawer, mine has a curved indentation. When I press the eject button, I see this indentation depress by itself, but it apparently wasn't going in far enough. Just putting my screwdriver in that little indentation was enough to free it up.

    Let's see how long it lasts this time!

    I think I need to find a repair facility near me. Nothing is working that has been suggested.

DVD recorder dubbing/playing problems


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..

A jammed DVD will not eject. Message"Repairing" goes on and on and nothing happens.How can I reject the dvd?


To whom it may concern

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.
Kind regards.

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.

Repairing disc message won't go & DVD disc won't eject


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!

Akai DVD recorder tray will not open


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.
