Re: ilo dvd burner

It has taken me months to figure out this problem, as I used to have it too! The only solution I have found was to replace the dvd burner inside the unit. This can be technical if you do not know what your doing, but here is a great website to get you started with how-to's.

Pursuing awesome's second line of attack a bit further, double check that the blank DVD you're trying to record is the right format. I think your machine expects DVD+R (The plus sign is important, DVD-R is something different). A.

Re: ilo dvd burner

Go online to update the firmware. If that does not work call the company to find out if they want you to ship it to them to correct the problem. There may be a recall on the unit. You do have a firmware problem in most cases. The other problem is that you may have to only use the same disk brand as the unit to get the system to work.

Mr ilo dvd R04 recorder is locked at the hello screen!!!!

The unit is not finishing the start up diagnostic. This could be forseveral reasons. The most common problem with the Ilo04 is power supply. On the power supply board check the two big capacitors to see if they are swollen or leaking. If so then change them and try that.

Ilo-DVDR04 recorder problems

The laser is either dirty or is starting to go.These lasers in this model usually only last two years.To clean but a commercial disc cleaner philips or Maxell work good in this model.Put a drop of rubbing alcohol on brushes this helps clean laser.I would do this every 15 hours of use .The best way to clean laser is to rub gently with a Qtip soaked in rubbing alcohol but this requires some technical knowledge for you have to open burner.If you attempt this make certain electrical plug is pulled lasers cause nasty burns.
If laser is going you can replace the burner/loader unit,this model uses a 411s or 451s Liteon burner.The 401s and 813s will also work without problem.

Cannot play this disc

The DVD-R130 can only record to DVD-R and DVD-RW disks - it cannot identify blank DVD+R and DVD+RW disks. For recorded DVD disks, the player will play finalised DVD+R/+RW disks without any problem.
