ILO DVDR05 makes high pitched squeal during recording

My iLO DVDR05 makes high pitched squeal during recording; it squeals for about one second and then stops for 1/2 second. It occurs in this sequence during the entire recording. It does not occur during playback. This recorder was given to me as a present; so it's either find a fix in this forum or throw it out. Any and all solutions are very welcome. Thank you!

Re: iLO DVDR05 makes high pitched squeal during recording

Usually a problem like this has to do with d.c. power sypply problems. Because "record" uses a different supply voltage and maybe "subcirckit" [not the same dc voltage that you use for playback, etc] If you know HOW to look inside and if you know how to take voltage\current readings...check ALL capitors,the diodes(misspelled?)Replace any that are "swolened", they are bad Other then that, take it to tech who if he is a crock he will overcharge, and if he is honest will repair for a fair price.....

As long as the voltage rating is higher, not lower, it is fine, actually better, especially since this seems to be a fairly common problem, the capacitors used may not have a high enough rating to survive transients that may occur. As long as you are replacing them, I would use a higher rating, to make it more robust.

Ilo dvdr05 dvd burner

Do the discs play okay in other dvd players? If not, perhaps the unit is getting hot during recording? Mine has to have ample space around it in order to not mess up.

ILO DVDR05 recorded DVD's freeze

Burn your DVDs at tow positions slower than what the system and discs say. It sounds as if there is a huge amount of error being introduced during the write process. Unfortunately, the old discs can only be recovered with an external program like Zero Assumption Recovery or the like....accordianman

Unit want come on

I ordered new Capacitors for my DVD Player 2 Panisonic 1500uf 10v 105° caps and 1 Panisonic 1000uf 10v 105° cap and soldered them into the powersupply where the oviously swolen / leaking capasitors were and walla it powers up and no more high pitch noise but I can't get it to eject the cd or anything. It shows on the screen but it just says loading. My guess is it did some dammage to other components inside the machine. I suppose it was worth a shot but now I am going to toss it and get a name brand. ILO isn't in business anymore... Oh and yes I did try the reset button abov the DVI connector...

Ilo DVDR05 Problem Found

Check the capacitors on the power supply board to see if any one has begun to blow-up (the top is pushed up). My unit had 2200uf at c20 position starting to go bad. Unit would keep clock time but push the On button the unit would say Hello but would then not return No Disk but rather lock-up. Hope this helps.

Stuck on "Hello"

This product is known for freezing up. You can get it fixed but it will cost more than you paid for the machine. Best advice, throw it away and buy a name brand recorder. The company will stand behind their products instead of dodging their responsibility of making a decent machine and ripping everyone off. I learned the hard way too, and yes, it hurts the pride.
