Re: 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.

I have an ilo dvdr04 recorder. ihave set it to my tv which works ok. yet when I try to play or record a dvd nothing comes up, and the tv stays on. how do I get the dvd to come on?

Push the source button on ilo Remote.The front RCA plugs AV1 the rear is AV2 of ilo.
If you still don't see dvd you are not wired correctly.

Only view in black and white on my ilo DVD R04

I was having the same problem. My DVDR04 was working fine. And after about four months of not using it I desired to use it. Turned it on and everything was in black in white. After searching on line and e-mailing Ilo which I never got an answer. I finally tried using an RCA video (Yellow) cable on the line out video jacks, replacing the line out S-Video jack/cable and it worked fine back in color right away.

ILO Recorder DVD05R - Playback jumps 10min, 20 min and more...

Does the disc still play in other dvd player? My ILO has always been picky to play rentals so I just have a cheap COBY player hooked up to front inputs of my ILO. I use it to watch the dvds, only use the Ilo to record. Saves wear and tear on my ILO but cannot find a universal remote to operate them both and my tv. If it still records okay thats what I would do, just watch the discs in a secondary unit. Sounds like time to start shopping for new recorder.
