Question about Lite On LVW-5115GHC+ DVD Recorder

Open Question

Will not play specific DVDs

I have a handful of DVDs this machine won't play. One is a SceneIt! game DVD, and the other one is an aerobics DVD for my wife. I'm looking for any advice. Basically, it just clicks and whirrs and never plays it. An older Sony DVD player will play, but this one won't. Thanks!

SOURCE: DVDs not recognized on other DVD players

you have to finalize them first. once you do this, you can not record onto the disc again.

SOURCE: model 5005 have used successfull

Does this player still recognize another disc that was not made from it ? of it doesn't recognize and disc at all? if that is teh case that this can be a problem with the lens of the player already you can try to run a DVD cleaner and hopefully that will fix the problem but if still not this may need a lens replacement already...

Hello there.

Push "Play/Pause" and "DVD Rec" on the dvd recorder a few seconds to see the service menu. There you can find your firmware version.

My toshiba BDXK100 won't play DVDs other than Blu-Ray

There may be a issue with the assembly, blu-ray plays with more precision and speed, for some reason it is not slowing down to play the regular DVD's may be a padder motor problem.

My LG DVD RECORDER, MODEL RH7500 won't play DVDs.

Check the model specifications for your device. Some players will only accept DVD-R and not DVD+R or not DVD+RW discs. I know it all seems the same, and it's very frustrating, but many companies restrict the type of discs they will allow. My player does +R but not -R. It should still be able to read DVD discs that you made yourself, but they will be of a different type.

Samsung DVD-V$357 recorded dvds won't play on other machines

Did you finalize the disk? If not, this should solve your problem. When the disk is finalized you should be able to play it on your computer if you can play other DVDs on it. Some other DVD players can only play specific disks (i.e. DVD-R, DVD+R). This may be another problem.
