Question about Sharp DV-RW2U DVD Recorder
Hi! I have had this DVD recorder for about 3 or 4 years. I have been very happy with it, for the most part. As time went on, it got VERY particular which DVDs it would accept for recording. Now it just mostly makes coasters....it has a variety of ways to reject discs, usually "wrong disc type". It has become temperamental. It plays ok. Even the discs I have been able to finalize play fine on other players. This unit wasn't cheap, and I'd really like to keep it. I figure it's just tired out. Rented dvds play fine. So I looked under the hood and there's a Pioneer 104 RZ/2 inside! Just like in a computer! I have not taken it out, yet. My question is, assuming that replacing the drive will solve the problem, is it just a simple unscrew-the-old- put-in-the- new? Does it have to be (the same model) Pioneer? Is there anything I'd have to do to the new drive before I put it in? Any "software" needed? Has anyone done this? Any hints/tips would be appreciated; Like how to uninstall/reinstall the tray "door"
It is time to buy a new set my friend.replacement parts for such player is hard to find.good luck.
