Question about Lite On LVW-5115GHC+ DVD Recorder
I've owned this DVD recorder for over a year, and have recorded DVDs on this unit before, but now it won't even recognize blank discs or some DVDs I put into the machine. It will say invalid disc, or with a blank disc it will begin preparing, but then stop abruptly and spit the blank disc back out.
What is happening? Please help me, this is getting pretty annoying. Thanks in advance. :)
Absolutely brilliant! I am so thankful for you guys! You've saved me buying a new DVD recorder!
Exactly the same problem was happening with mine. I followed the advice on this forum, took the cover off the DVD recorder machine, blew as hard as i could (can't get compressed air in this neck of the woods at this hour!!) and applied a little light dusting to the lens with a duster cloth! I put it all back together, and hey presto....!! It works like new! It suddenly recognizes discs that it wouldn't recognize before!
Thank you all!

Taking off the case and using compressed air worked for me! :-)

I had the same problem, too. And I sent the DVD-Recorder back to Lito-on for exchange. But the new unit still had the same problem. So, I tried a solution posted here. It clearly worked with 1-2-3. Thanks all.

Hi, Ive just repaired several liteon's ( incidently they are identical inside to some philips models ). In most cases the non writing or non reading problem is caused by dust on the laser glass. You have to open the unit then remove the dvd drive then remove its covers and just give a wipe of the laser with a clean non fluffy cloth. If theres lots of dust in other parts of the drive then this will need to be removed also as it could easily get onto the laser when in use. Even almost new liteons can suffer the problem , it only needs a little bit of dust to top the laser shining onto the dvd , instead the dust just reflects the light back. Hope this helps.
