Question about Lite On LVW-5005 DVD Recorder

Open Question

I have two LiteOn LVW 5005 DVR recorders. One will not open .

It reads open on the display but doesn't open.
The second one doesn't always stay closed when I change a DVR and start reading the disc. Can anybody help me or tell me where to get it fixed.
I use mostly DVR's that are rewritable +RW.

    I have the same problem which I'm trying to solve right now.I'm pretty sure it's mechanical due to wear and tear of the plastic movable parts.I also have the 5026 model which is beginning to show the same early symptoms.

    I have same issue...The button seems to be working and the display says "OPEN" but the tray does not move (all the time). Sometimes it does open but when it doesn't, if I knock on it or pick it up slightly and set it back down with a slight thump it opens.

    Closing mine is also an issue sometimes...I have to gently lift the end of the tray to get the mechanism to engage and close the drawer.

    I am out of warranty and LITE-ON tech support can not help. 1-877-525-1900 is the number...$1.49 / Min charge for support.

    I have exactly the same problem. When I push the open button, there is a click as if the device tries to open the tray, but it cannot.

I have same problem like you, but I have changed the DDW-813s to a new Lite-On DH-20A3P, it work perfectly, good as new.

I have the LVW 5005 and was having a similar problem. Unplugged it tore it apart (looking if anything looked physically wrong) plugged it back in and it worked (and still is). Try unplugging it, letting is sit for 1/2 hour and plugging it back in. Might get lucky.

SOURCE: Liteon DVD recorder LVW-5045 has disc inside and won't open tray

Use your knuckles to knock on top of cabinet just above disc tray door while at the same time pressing open button,99% of the time disc tray will open.The problem you have is caused by a worn out belt drive or the tray is out of alignment.The disc tray belts only cost $2,when tray is open you can see the minature belt that controls door to the right.Use twizzers to remove and replace.Belt size 1.9

If your DVD recorder can still access CD's the goto the following link and select your DVD recorder from the drop down list under audio/video and download the firmware file.

http://www.liteonit.eu/index.php?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=178

Write the file contained in the zip file to a CD and insert it into your DVD recorder. Follow the instructions in the user manual to complete the firmware update.

This should solve your problem.
