IT seems like the laser that is reading the info from the DVDs is not working properly on you device. Since the DVD player is less then a year old still under manufacturers warranty.
I would suggest to contact the vendor or manufacturer to have ir repair under warranty.

Hi,

This could be indicative of either a dirty or defective lens. Let's try the cleaning first. The easiest would be to use a CD disc cleaner similar to those used in computer's CD ROMs normally and readily available from most computer shops. Should this not be corrective, you may need to try and manually clean the insides by opening the unit. Should you not be comfortable going this route, then perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

This drive stopped allowing CD burns. Is it just


Have had this issue in the past with Lite-On in particular. Stop gap measure was to uninstall and reinstall to get it working temporarily. It seems the life span of Lite-On isn't all that great. Best of luck.

After apprrox 5 mins unit switches off


Not sure if this will help, but mine acted up similarly before it went with a message of "Please Wait" on the display at all times. Searched the web, found out two capacitors needed to be replaced. My brother was able to easily solder the parts in a very short time. Google the name and model number with the words Please Wait and you can see how many folks have had this problem. Your machine may be on its way to this problem.

I have good friends that got their machine at the same time. Same thing happened to them within one month of me telling them about it. Our machines are about 4 years old as well.

Another big problem. I then got a U99 Error Code. Completly frozen machine. From my researcy I may have caused the problem by storing too much on hard drive. Once you transfer video, get it off the hard drive. They say mine can not be fixed. Problem is, they do not make them anymore. No hard drives for recording or dubbing DVDs.

DVD freezing up


It very well could be a lens problem.
When the laser is in a desperate search for more data, it can max out the whole unit trying to find it. Same thing will happen with a PC's dvd drive if you put a dvd in and it is scratched or damaged.

The lens in your unit may not be dirty, but it may need to be calibrated again. Knocks in transport, dust, bugs, general use etc etc can all have an effect on the laser.

The fact it's doing it in a cycle could also be heat related. Again this goes back to the calibration. If the laser is working far harder then it should, it will heat up and begin to fail.

Since it is only a few months old though, I would call in on the warranty to have it looked at without causing you further grief.
