Question about LG DR-4810 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

LG DR-4812W seems to get stuck

I have had my dvd recorder for less than 2 years. For the last 6 months its seems to get stuck while playing recorded dvd's. It will play fo a bit and then freeze on a frame and not play any further. With some dvd's it won't fast foward anything more than x2. It also spits recordable dvd's out, saying they are invalid, even if I recorded on those same dvd's the week before. It is not overheated, or transported and a dvd that worked last night won't work the next day. It is very temperamental!

If it won't PLAY VHS tapes it must have a serious mechanical problem (if it even loads) or its heads are glommed up, so it obviously won't record them either. When's the last time you ran a cleaning tape through it?

Solve the load or playback problem and it will probably record.

Time and poor storage conditions are the mortal enemies of tapes. Store the in a 'played

Could be the dvd player/lens. The player sucks up dust through the
player's caddy and after a while it won't read discs anymore.
A cd cleaner or a good (gently dosed) blow with compressed air might help.
