I have an Ilo DVDR05/VU model not quite a year old. When plugged in it displays numbers as it is supposed to. However, once it is turned on, either with the remote or at the unit itself, it says Hello but never moves on. From that point on, I can do nothing with the remote. I cannot eject, play, nothing. It should come to the ilo screen saver but it just keeps saying "hello". I cannot turn the power off with the remote or at the unit. I have noticed a slight high-pitched whistle coming from the unit over the past couple of days and don't know if this is relevant. I am leaving it unplugged for a bit to see if that does any good at all. Any ideas?
This product is known for freezing up. You can get it fixed but it will cost more than you paid for the machine. Best advice, throw it away and buy a name brand recorder. The company will stand behind their products instead of dodging their responsibility of making a decent machine and ripping everyone off. I learned the hard way too, and yes, it hurts the pride.
