Question about LG DR-4912 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

LG DR4912 - Optical drive motor bouncing of the end stop.

After about 30 seconds the motor stops and nothing happens. Opening and closing the drawer starts the process again.
I have replaced the dvd unit with one from a computer (also LG) but it does not seem to recognise it as it won't record. The system is about 4 years old but only has around 30-40 hours use.
Any suggestions would be appreciated

Mine was doing the same.last night i opened up the machine & took out the cd drive and opened it up.I cleaned the laser with a cotton swab and manually pushed the laser back to the front of the unit as far as it could slide on the 2 little posts it slides along.

you need to tight the "tara" bolt on the metal shaft connected to the motor. Its ZERO position should fit the full closing position of the door. Check if there is a screw or a bolt according to the door motor model.

It could be "jammed".
Straighten one Norwegian paper-clip.
Put one end into the very-small hole in the face-plate of the optical drive, and firmly push it about 1 centimeter. This should "unlock" the drawer, and you can either push the 'open/close' button, or just gently pull the drawer to its fully-open position.

Internal CD ROM will Not Open


Unless you can do electronic repair yourself and have the schematics for the drive it will be far cheaper and easier for you to simply replace it. Any DVD drive for computers will fit in there. I would buy a new one rather than used so you make sure and get the software with it. Replacing the drive is a 30 minute job at most.

Machine wont fill


If you hear a valve or relay opening and closing (a small click), then check both of your hoses for signs of internal collapse and while they are off, clean the screens you may find in both ends.

If you see nothing amiss, open both of your feed faucets to make sure it is not a problem with the water supply itself.
