I have been told LSI NG on my Pioneer 510 HDD Recorder refers to failure of the large Scale Intigraton Chip (LSI for short) so it is saying the L.S.I. Chip is No Good.

Some have commented elsewhere this might be a failure of a hard disk leading to this and to try and change the HDD out and see if the failure continues as this may cause the LSI statement...

My service tech just told me this is plausible but unlikely and the Pioneer 310/510 DVD Recorders are getting old and the LSI chips are starting to fail on them.

I regret to say the recorder is probably failing on you due to it's age. My tech commented to me these are supposedly good for five years and their current age is almost 11 years.

Remainig use life depends on the unit and how much it has been used. We got into this with a failed DVD burner on our unit which you use to burn from the HDD Hard Disk in the 510 (the 310 is a DVD Recorder only).

Just a note on servicing these units. If you remove the DVDR or HDD you then need a service remote and service DVD on these units to reset the code in the units or they will not work.

If you open them up and start disconnecting the drives and don't have these tools you will not be able to reset them and the units will not work even if there is no problem (so you have been forewarned about this).

I'd check on line for a refub unit as there are very few qualified techs to deal with these and many lack the tools for these old units. People like them because they have many great features but are no longer made. I was told all of the 510's were made within six months in I believe 2003 or 2004...

Insert blank dvd rw but after trying to load ejects. weird as it plays all dvd's fine


Hi, well even though it plays OK what's wrong is that the record laser is faulty, and when it "Tests" the inserted media, with the record laser to see and set the power levels it fails as it is faulty and thus ejects the disc. Replace the unit, repair is un-economic. In saying that it may be advisable to get a "Quote" from an approved repairer?

DVR-720 power off


I have a solution to power it on again quickly. Unplug the power cable, short out the pins in the power socket in the back of the machine ( NOT THE POWER CABLE ) and plug the power cable back in - it should go into standby mode immediately. I think the problem is caused by a capacitor on the power supply board going faulty with age. I have not had time to open the machine to check yet, but I will do so soon.

I need pioneer dvr-215bk dvd rom drivers


dvd roms do not need drivers they are a standard format drive and should be recognised by your pc immediately.

in order to play DVDs you will however need a Software DVD player like WINDVD or POWER DVD

DVD-RWs do not need drivers but may require that the CD burning software that you use may need updating.
