Question about Televison & Video
This seems to be a very common problem with DVD recorders.
If a DVD Lens cleaner (with brushes) fails to fix the problem, then it could be that you have
grease particles on the lens. Do the following:
Note. If unit is still under warranty, you may nullify this by opening unit up
You will need:
Screwdrivers as necessary
Cotton Bud sticks (also known as Q-tips)
Isoproponal/Isopropyl Alcohol (small bottle comes with some CD/DVD cleaners)
Compressed Air cannister/aerosol
1. After disconnecting unit, leave standing for 15 minutes
2. Unscrew lid and remove
3. Carefully remove DVD lens cover
4. Blast whole area with compressed air to remove dust
5. Dip one end of cotton bud in Isoproponal, and very carefully wipe DVD lens (just one wipe
6. Now wipe lens with dry end of cotton bud, and leave a few seconds to dry
7. Carefully replace DVD lens cover (watch out for ribbon cables)
8. Replace Lid
9. Reconnect, switch on and test
After I'd tried every other way possible, this method finally worked for me!
