No Disc The unit is not recognizing the disc. When I put any disc in it reads "no disc" I have the correct blanks in and have tried ones that are already recorded and it doesn't read any at all.

I had this identical problem just after a year and a half of use. I tried cleaning the lens... that didn't change anything. I tried using movie discs that I knew had worked before.... same problem. I took the unit apart and found the problem. There 5 or 6 (I forgot exactly) capacitors on the power board that are black cylinder types with silver tops. If the tops look like they are bulging, then It requires changing capacitors on the power board. I ordered them through the internet, removed the old and installed the new capacitors. Now everything works great.


The capacitors are: 10v 2200uf 105-Degree Capacitors. They cost about 20 cents a piece.

Good luck.

Disc load problem


DVD players need a finilized disk. When the program finilizes the disk, it's writing the TOC which is where the players go to find the files.

The dvd wont initialize blanc discs so that i can record with it.i have used different disc as well


Do you mean it won't format/initialize the disc? Alternative possible problem, when you put in a disc, does it not recognize that a blank disc is in the unit? Only DVD-RAM discs need formatting. DVD-RW discs need to be initialized. DVD-R disc do not need either formatting or initializing. (This unit does not write to DVD+R or DVD+RW discs.)

In the case of DVD-RW discs that can't be initialized. Check if this has already been done (or if you need to unfinalize the disc).

If the new disc is not being recognized as a blank disc, the recorder may not be recognizing the disc (dirt, scratches or manufacturing issue) or the recorder is not focusing on the disc properly. In the first case, clean the disc or try a different type of disc (Samsung claims that their discs will be most compatible). In the second case, the unit may need service.

I hope this helps.

Unit does not recognize DVD-R and is ejected from the player


You may need to try a DVD+R disc. Some of the players/recorders are REALLY picky.

Won't record on blank disc.


Bulk disc that comes in cylinder case are some time faulty and loses quality because they packed on each other. The lens of the disc are sensitive so if disc is scratch or dirty will get error message "no read". Turn the unit off then unplug ac power cord for more than two minutes then reconnect and try disc again, if issue still exist purchase disc that comes in individual case.

Can anybody help me, I purchased a Samsung dvd recorder model dvdvr350m, since purchasing the unit it will not recognize that it has recordable dvd's in it (dvd-rw),it tells me no disc inserted please...


Did the sales guy use the same DVD-RW that you did? Maybe the brand you are using is not of good quality and can not be recognized by the recorder. If he did not use the same disc did you notice if he used DVD-RW or DVD+RW? Some DVD-Recorders only recognize one or the other but this is kind of rare these days. I recommend verbatim brand discs. They should be available for sale at any shop. If you want the ultimate in quality DVDs then go with Taiyo Yuden. This Japanese brand invented recordable media and in addition to that they are obsessed with quality. www.supermediastore.com is always where I get my discs.

i would say for some reason your dvd player is not compatible from now on with that brand of blank dvd!


get the firmware update from the brand website all you do is download the file burnit on a cd and put it in the dvd player should fix most and eventual problems

Won't read DVDs


Hi, Ive just repaired several liteon's ( incidently they are identical inside to some philips models ). In most cases the non writing or non reading problem is caused by dust on the laser glass. You have to open the unit then remove the dvd drive then remove its covers and just give a wipe of the laser with a clean non fluffy cloth. If theres lots of dust in other parts of the drive then this will need to be removed also as it could easily get onto the laser when in use. Even almost new liteons can suffer the problem , it only needs a little bit of dust to top the laser shining onto the dvd , instead the dust just reflects the light back. Hope this helps.
