Question about LG DR-4810 DVD Recorder
I own a Dr165 for about 4 months recently I've noticed a problem: while recording longish programmes like movies etc the recorder spontaneously stops recording, giving the message "recording file info... please wait.." and then when the message disappears goes back to recording mode. With the result that I lose the intervening data. Could this be b'se of overheating? Or a faulty "Stop" switch? Or something more sinister?
Sounds like the laser head carriage slides or screw drive need oil or
the screw drive may have dirt in it that will cause uneven movement or
possible jamming of the carriage on the slide.
The carriage and drive screw need to move smoothly. The slides can easly be oiled. The screw however can be difficult to clean. Using paper can make it worse due to the paper fibre getting into the screw as well. You could try a lint free material to clean the screw and then oil it, preferably with a non drying oil.
