Question about Lite On LVW-5005 DVD Recorder
The recorder works fine using the Guider Function, but I can not get the Disc Drawer to open so I can change DVDs.
I had the same problem- the door would not open.
I opened up the unit removed the drive and discovered a lever which allows to manually eject the tray. After playing with this a bit, I discovered that if I hit open on the until and depress this lever, it would open reliably. Not ideal, but at least it gives me ability to open/close.
Unfortunately once I put the unit back together, it no longer recognizes any disks. I must have damaged some disk sensor mechanism in the process. On the bright side however, it open/closes reliably now, doesnt even require the lever to be depressed manually. So if I can just get it to recogize disks, I am in good shape again.
You may not need to open up the unit and remove the CD burner to get to the manual lever, but you have to remove the fancy cover plate for the tray to be able to access the lever. The cover plate on mine is silvered and says "All write". The lever is on the underside of the tray to the left side, a paperclip might be able to poke thru to access it without removing the whole front cover.
