Lvw5005 recorder I contacted the support unit , they seem to think that the lazer is burnt out; they don't want to fix it;I contacted an electronics expert he cannot get the part to fix it . Nice , HUH ?? If you leave the unit ON the lazer will burn out quickly. I am really pissed off at Liteon , they are ALLOWED to sell something , BUT you cannot get it FIXED !!! ??That is BS !! You buy a car: the shock fails , Do you buy a NEW CAR ?? I just want it fixed ..

The part required ***IS*** available duckie125!!!!!

I fixed my LiteOn LVW5005 by going to the local computer shop and buying a LiteOn 20x DVD Writer (the price tag on the box says AUD$33 but it's probably cheaper now).

I opened the DVD Recorder case, removed the old drive assembly and spent a little time figuring out how to clip the dvd recorder drive face onto the new drive assembly. The new drive assembly comes with a black, white and a silver face to suit your computer. Examine all these bits close up and you'll get the idea!!!

I also had to use long-ish M3 bolts (and nuts and washers, from my local hobby electronics outlet but any good bolt supplier or hardware outlet will do) to replace the mounts to the old drive assembly.

The key to getting a good life out of the dvd drive in this recorder is probably to keep the unit cool when it operates. I have it in a well ventilated rack unit with an extra box fan on the back of it. Also I put some small wooden blocks under the rubber feet to keep the air flowing underneath it too.

If you had been operating one for a while at an elevated temperature then I would be worried about the SM power supply going noisy. That would probably generate the peculiar behaviour cited by mmillerpro.

This machine has a well designed user interface, but its long term stability is questionable I think. Still, it wasn't bad value for money cos I got it so cheap. With the measures listed above and the standby of cheap replacement drives and the fall-back of firmware updates, I think I'll be using this dvd recorder for a while yet.......

This is a common problem with the Lite-on LVW range of DVD recorders due to changes in the construction of more recent DVD R media. It can be solved with a relatively simple firmware upgrade.

You'll need to have a blank CD and a CD/DVD writer in the PC you use to download the file.

Follow the instructions on the website to upgrade your firmware, this should then allow you to write to DVD's once again.

Hello
According to your description, it seems that the disc tray is not loading into it porperly i thinks. Just do one thing. Without any disc in tray, close the tray either by using remote control or the front panel opn/close button of the system. If the tray closes first, and then reopens again without any command, make sure that the disc tray mechanism does not working properly, and the disc is not loading into it in place.
If this is alright, place a disc in the tray, set close, and push the tray with your finger slightly as it closes, and see whether it loads properly and play the disc. If so, loading belt inside the loading mechanism is worn out, ans should be replaced. In most cases, this may be the fault. Check it.
You can do the repair work, if you have some knoledge in electroncis, and its mechanical function. If not, get it repaired by an experienced service technican. Most of them can do this work, as it is simply a mechanical one. OK.

This is a common fault and usualy caused by the DVD drive going faulty, The Lazer changes angle as it records across the disc and at about 80% there is a change point.

I suggest putting a cleaner DVD through the unit before you try anything else as a bit of dust can cause that problem. If that doesn't fix it than you may need to change the DVD loader unit as a whole or as you suggested by a new modern unit with even more features.

Samsung DVD HR735 doesn't recognise DVDs


It sounds like the laser in the DVD player is getting weak or has alignment problems. If the DVD that did not play in the samsung but played in others. I would tend to think its not alignment since you mentioned that it's been repaired before. Chances are the laser is weak but still within spec in order to prevent replacement. When My dvd players start to go they will generally stop recognizing burned media and thats your clue to replace it. They are very inexpensive to replace nowadays and have almost become disposable items. Probably not what you wanted to hear but it sounds like's like this player wasnt made very well.
