Ilo dvdr04 freezing picture

I used this unit for a couple of years with no problems. Now, whenever I try to watch or record a dvd, play begins to freeze up after about an hour. The screen will freeze, then play for a few seconds, then freeze etc.

Playback on recorded disk

The DVD has burned incorrectly and the data has likely corrupted somewhat to the point where the DVD player/writer can't read it. You may be able to watch it on your computer with a DVD drive. Try saving it to your computer, then erasing the disc and trying to record something short to it and play it back - if it plays back, it's likely to have been a recording problem, however, if you get the same problem, it may be a dodgy disc, a faulty DVD player/writer, or a format problem. Try this, in order left to right. Copy DVD to PC -> Erase DVD -> Record on DVD from TV -> Play back If plays back Erase DVD -> Continue as normal If not Buy DVD-RW (emphasis on the minus) -> Try using that If that works continue as normal, otherwise... Return the DVD player/writer under warranty for repair/replacement.

I need a remote for my ilo dvdr04 recorder. where can i get it?

Go to walmart and get a Philips universal remote, they have the ilo code listed. I have two of them...even though the remote isn't set up like the original ilo remote, you can still record, burn, finalize, and edit. I have the dvdrhd04...which is going into the shop tomorrow to replace the dvd burner, but the hard drive still works like a charm.

Again, you'll have to play with the remote a bit....ARC gets you into the menu and (.) while playing will get you into edit mode, but into another menu when not playing a recorded item. I've used it so much now that I can barely use the original remote. ha ha. The perk is that you can set up your dvd, your tv, digital box and other things to run on one remote.

Hope this helps.

My DVDR04 will not read any DVD+R disk.

You are using the right type Plus (+)R. So, I'd think, the unit is deffective. When I bought mine I had to take back to Walmart, and get it a different one because it was stopping me from recording my own recorded VCR tapes.

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.

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

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.
