For several months I had a similar problem which was resolved using a cleaning disk. Finally that didn't help. I opened up the DVD recorder - removed a guard to prevent you from looking directly at the laser lens. I gently cleaned the lens with 91% alcohol on a cotton swab and now it records fine!!!!
Have you tried the rewriteables, they don't require to be finalized at all. ILO's are real picky, I returned two to Walmart before discovering to use ONLY SONY + or the rewriteables(brand doesn't seem to matter on the rewritables, don't know why.
My ILO was doing the same thing, then it stopped doing it. It then suddenly would not recognize any media. I opened up the case and found it is using a dvd lite-on recorder. I had this old pc laying around with a gigabyte dvd recorder in it. For a test, I unplugged the lite-on and plugged in the gigabyte recorder. On power up, it seemed to work fine. After recording 3 DVD's I modified the case to accept the hew recorder. ** problems since, its not pretty, but it was easy to get the unit functional again.
These R04 are fickle,some Brands of DVD discs won't work in ILO,try another brand.Also clean laser in iLO it may be dirty,use commercial cleaning disc,put a drop of rubbing alcohol on brushes.Do not use any other chemical.
It is possible you laser is defective or starting to go.If that's the case you need to replace burner/loader.
Some dvd recorders formulate a little differently,I have made recordings in my iLo that won't work in all brands of players/recorders.
You have the wrong firmware,or cd is corrupted.These Liteon recorders have had some issues with the timers.The 5005xa can actually be transformed into the Ilo R04.Look on internet the Wizard has free firmware for your unit, look for iLO R04 which is almost identical to your unit.
If the remote is broke they are easy to replace ,if the recorder is a 5005xa the remote is a clone to ones used in the iLO RO4,used ones can be bought on Ebay for $10 to $20.If it is 5005XSA use the Liteon Rm 51 remote.The Gateway AR 230 recorder and some of the Akai remotes are clones to the Liteon5005XSA remotes.
This seems to happen with alot of dvd recorders especially if discs left unfinalised for long periods of time.This happens on all makes of recorders not just your model.Also the quality of the dvds being used can be the problem.How old is your recorder as the only other problem which could cause this is the laser losing power
