Question about Lite On LVC-9016G DVD Recorder/VCR
I am having problems with my LVC-9016G. It does not burn any dvds and it
will not finalize what I have recorded before it stopped recording. At
first, it would say 'invalid disc' on some of the dvds but then after
awhile, it would say 'invalid disc' on every dvd I put in. It will not
finalize at all but it does play a dvd. The VHS still plays though it
wll not record from VHS to DVD anymore. I have tried to clean this unit
with a dvd cleaner but it still will not burn or recognize dvds to burn.
This dvd recorder has had about 300 dvds burned.
There are three things you can do that will eventually give you a working solution. Depending on the level of problem. Start with 1 progress to 3 until it works.
1. Use a cleaning disc. (one that use an alcohol based liquid)
2. If the cleaning disc does not solve it, you can use an ear bud, with some iso-propyl alcohol to clean the DVD lens on the drive directly. (you have to open the player and the drive)
3. The guaranteed working solution is to replace the DVD drive inside the player. This is quite a simple process, as most players use a standard IDE DVD-ROM or DVD writer.
You simply remove the face plate, (apply power to the drive, and press eject first) the tray will open. Unclip the tray face, and then with the tray open you can unclip the plastic face plate too.
Remove the old drive, and fit the new drive by reversing the removal procedure.
Once everything is assembled you should be able to watch DVD's again. If you can't find a cheap DVD drive locally, try ebay.
I have done this on over 50 players for my clients in the past. I use LG DVD roms and DVD writers for the DVD recorders, irrespective of brand.
Let me know how it goes.
