My liteon vcr/dvd recorder lvc-9016G: The DVD keeps showing "invalid disc" when I know they are not.
I bought it in Sept.07 and it was OK till now.
The VCR is working and recording.
You have 2 choices here, you can either submit the unit to an authorised service centre (or similar), obtain a quote on the likely cause(s) of the problem (which to me sounds like the digital control circuit has failed partially to the DVD deck and/or corrupt firmware which is not possible to upgrade), the potential costs involved, and so on, you can then make a decision based on the unit's age and overall condition as to whether it's economical to repair or not. The point is, the unit is repairable, but it could prove expensive.
The other option you have, is to keep the unit as a VCR (which is cheaper than repair to the DVD), and later on, buy a new DVD player/recorder (as required). The cost of the repairs to your existing unit vs. buying a new one could be significant. Up to you.
Personally, does the DVD deck play any shop-bought movies? If not, don't bother getting it repaired. Buy a new unit (but keep your existing unit as a VCR while it works).
