Question about Lite On LVC-9016G DVD Recorder/VCR
The door and DVD tray of our LVC-9016G does not open. When you press the eject button you can hear the mechanism operate but the tray does not pop open. Until recently it had worked without a problem. There is not a DVD in the unit.
Tapping the top as you hit "OPEN" works as outlined by BEST SOLUTION above, but not really hard. This applies to the Lite-On LVW5005X I had the same problem with. This is the worst DVD recorder and has very poor sound quality output, and plays in my other Lite-On of higher quality w/low sound volume. Timer is also very limited in number (5) & day-settings. Tried but failed to record on 16x DVD, too. CD-R recording very, very limited so i don't bother using that function..

The rather in-elegant solution I use is to lift the unit half inch or so, and drop it. the door then opens and you can insert the disc. if a disc is in the unit, it opens just fine.

I have 2 LiteOn products and they both do this now, and they also say INVALID DISC, and the discs get stuck. I have to tip the machine forward and down and tap it from behind, as I hit the OPEN button, and it will come out. BE FAST and grab the drawer when the disc tries to exit!

My tray was also sticking but I managed to solve the problem. I can also tell you why slapping the unit worked.
The reason that it sticks (at least in my case) is that the magnet which holds the reading head upwards becomes stronger with use. Thus the reading head will not go down to its place and the tray can't slide out. When you slap the unit the magnet lets the reading head fall down and the tray opens.
I solved my problem by taking the dvd recorder apart (taking note of how I dismantled it so as to reassemble afterwards). When disassembled I put some tape (electrical tape as it is a bit thicker) over the magnet. This weakened the strength of the magnet and allowed the tray to open normally. It makes some noise when reading the dvd, but the tray always opens and I can read and burn dvd's once again with no harm done.

I got a refurbed unit. I had a problem with the video tape section. It would not take in a tape, so I held it in, and it got stuck.
Since the tape section was stuck, the DVD side would not operate.
I took it apart. Turns out that the roof bridge over the VCR section was loose, and when I re-attached it, the tape was stablilized enough to eject properly.
I have a new problem - how do I get it to record in progressive mode instead of interlaced mode? (tried to copy a tape to DVD to be stored on my PC. I saw heavy interlacing, so I could not keep that.)

Well, the problem with is the rubber thread which would be connected to the motor inside the DVD player would have moved from its place... You have to get in touch with the service centre and place the rubber to its actual place.....
