Question about Televison & Video

4 Answers

I have an EZ-Dub i got from WalMart six months ago. It stopped working last month. The drive spins, but it won't read DVDs of any kind. I think i got it to play a CD, but i can't now remember. Can I exchange this burner under warantee and receive an exchange unit? The only proof of sale would be the UPC Code on the box. I don't have my receipt anymore, but the Mfg date on the drive is April, 2007

Hi,

Regarding the warranty i suggest you to contact Lite-On they will help you with the warranty issue and get your player replced.To have a live chat with them please CLICK HERE
Or you can send them an email from HERE

Few troubleshooting steps you can try:

First try a hard reset by unpluging all the cords from the back for 30min and then plug it back in.IF this doesn't help then do the following:

Load a disc and listen.Does the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.

If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.

It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track.

If the problem does not get solved then you have to get it repaired.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution

Hello there.

Please click here to contact Lite-On about email topic "Warranty service issue"

After entering your model and serial number they should be able to work out if the device is under warranty and thus replaceable.

Hope this helps.

Greetings,
You might be able to return it to Walmart. I do not believe that LiteOn will take it back without a reciept.
Good Luck,

Hello

The shops keep copyes of sold items they should be able to confirm when you bought it with your name and the details of the product from the box.

Most likely dirty or broken lens.

Easyest thing for you, go get it replaced.

Problem with portable dvd player


i would return the item to your retailer as it should hold a 12 month warranty, as if it cannot read cds or dvd, the lens is faulty, and trying to repair it yourself will void your warranty. Please dont forget your ratings are important, thank you
