LVW-5005X DVD Recorder setup tv tuner

I own lite-on lvw 5005xa It was working fine till one day my remote stopped working and my tv and timer recording setup would reset when power turns off. So when I turn the recorder on I have to auto scan all channels again. If I sont turn off the unit the tuner is fine. But I cannot time record without the power off. I tried to update the firmware from liteonit website. but the cd reads and displays data disc and ejects. No change in any firmware takes place. Can any one help me Like what can be done.

Re: LVW-5005X DVD Recorder setup tv tuner

You have the wrong firmware,or cd is corrupted.These Liteon recorders have had some issues with the timers.The 5005xa can actually be transformed into the Ilo R04.Look on internet the Wizard has free firmware for your unit, look for iLO R04 which is almost identical to your unit.
If the remote is broke they are easy to replace ,if the recorder is a 5005xa the remote is a clone to ones used in the iLO RO4,used ones can be bought on Ebay for $10 to $20.If it is 5005XSA use the Liteon Rm 51 remote.The Gateway AR 230 recorder and some of the Akai remotes are clones to the Liteon5005XSA remotes.

I have a DVD Recorder, Lite-On LVW-5005X. I have been having sporadic problems with the disc tray not opening for some time. But usually after repeated attempts, it would open. I have recorded and...

You need to replace the disc tray belt,it streches with age.It is called a square belt,size 1.9.To open try tapping on TOP of cabinet with your knuckles just above the disc tray door.While you are doing this press the Open button.Once again this must be done at the same time,the door will open 90% of the time.When you get it open you will see the little black square belt,this can be removed and replaced with a twizzers.Make sure belt is in the track if not it will jam and door won't close.

How do i hook up my dvd recorder to my dvd player? where do i hook my cords to?

You need RCA cables to do this.These have red yellow and white cable ends.The yellow is for video the white is for the left speaker,red for the right speaker.Run the RCA cables from the output of you DVD player to the INPUT of your dvd recorder.Run another set of RCA cables from the output of your dvd recorder to the input of your TV.Most modern tv's have these inputs. These RCA cables can be purchased at Radio Shack or places like Walmarts.

Liteon DVD recorder LVW-5045 has disc inside and won't open tray

Use your knuckles to knock on top of cabinet just above disc tray door while at the same time pressing open button,99% of the time disc tray will open.The problem you have is caused by a worn out belt drive or the tray is out of alignment.The disc tray belts only cost $2,when tray is open you can see the minature belt that controls door to the right.Use twizzers to remove and replace.Belt size 1.9

Doesn't recognize disks anymore

This is a common problem with the Lite-on LVW range of DVD recorders due to changes in the construction of more recent DVD R media. It can be solved with a relatively simple firmware upgrade.

Goto :

You'll need to have a blank CD and a CD/DVD writer in the PC you use to download the file.

Follow the instructions on the website to upgrade your firmware, this should then allow you to write to DVD's once again.
