Question about iLO DVDR05 DVD Recorder
When I first learned to record on my dvd recorder [a few months ago], it seemed to do a fairly good job, although the playback was a little fuzzy. However, recently the player/recorder has been behaving in an odd fashion. Sometimes it does not recoginize a disk in the tray, even a commercially pre-recorded disk. Other times it will call a disk a 'bad disk' one time, then, after I open and close the tray, will indicate there is 'no disk' in the tray and the next time and play the same disk. This even occurs with commercially pre-recorded disks. The player/recorder has also begun stopping in the middle of the formatting phase, thereby ruining several blank disks. Or, occasionally, it will apparently format a disk, then record one or two things before refusing to further record on it, calling it a 'bad disk' and asking me to put in a recordabe disk when I press the record button. It has ruined between 5 and 10 disks in very short order. I haven't been using this player very long and am not very happy with this poor preformance. Any suggestions? [I have tried a cleaning disk a couple of times without apparent benefit.]
I have suffered the same problems as you describe here. What I believe is this unit suffers from inadequate ventilation. After having this problem I examined the unit and noticed it was hot. What I've done is put 2 small flat blocks on each side of the unit, to basically suspend it so that it can get airflow under and over it, now staying much cooler. Nearly all problems now have gone away. Seldomly, I find it will still exibit the problems mentioned. Frankly the only solution I've found from there is to unplug it for a short while and, upon plugging it back in, and trying again it works flawlessly.
