Question about Lite On Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have had a Liteon LVW-5005 DVD Recorder for two or three years. I am now having difficuly in getting the tray to open. I've asked around and the problem seems to be the belt that operates the tray. The person I spoke to said he is having the same problem but is unable to get replacement belts. Can you advise me how to obtain some. Thanks.

    Thanks Benimur for that suggestion. I'll work on it but if I can't get one would it be possible for you to obtain one for me. You would of course be handsomely rewarded because I really don't want to scrap the recorder just because of a small belt.

    Thanks Benimur. I've been given the address of a chap in Eaglescliffe who says that he can get a belt but its not an amateur job to fit it. I'll take it in to him and he can have a look at it.

    Thanks Benimur but that's an awful long way for me to bring it. I'm not even certain where the Phillipines is except that she had 5000 shoes.

Try your neighborhood electronics store (for audio/TV), not a computer store. The belt would roughly be identical for some electronic devices like mechanical counters, VCRs, old Walkman or regular cassette players and the like.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    It would be my pleasure should the need arise. If and when, pls do an "Ask Me" inside my profile.

    Still, for anything, "Ask Me". The gentleman from Eaglescliffe might really be to your advantage, I am in the Philippines.

    LOL, of all things to remember about my country, but the offer still stands. May I also refer you to another FixYa expert who is based in UK?
    Perhaps you may consult on him as well and maybe more advantageous due
    to proximity. We call him Ginko and clicking here would lead you to his profile. Thereafter, clicking on the "Ask Me" button would make your further queries directly visible to him. Again, doing the same in my profile would also make your questions directly posted to me so should you still desire.

    And I wish you luck with your belt (while I try to look for at least a pair of shoes from the 5000 for the wife).

    Cheers. Bye.

DVD Recoder trouble

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.

LVW - 5005

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 disk if you still have a disk stuck inside.Visually check the spindle sticky rubber ring,most likely some sticky material migrated on top of the rubber ring and your DVD was stuck on it. Clean the best you can with a cleaner and a non lint cloth.I used a cleaner/degreaser for electronics.DO NOT POWER your LVW BEFORE reinstalling the black plastic cover.There is a laser inside !!! You may now try and if the drawer opens and closes, reassemble everything opposite way you disassembled.
