    I have Lite-on 5005A DVD RECORDER and the dvd cover does not
    open. One time I pried it open and it will open and close right away
    and I could not use it. When I pried it open I cleaned the surfaces of
    tray with silicone used for lubricating treadmill belt.

    On the cover it says do not open. However I am going to open the
    cover and see if belt is loose or scratched and try to fix.

Open up your machine then check the cd tray there is a motor that drives the tray. between the motor there are gears which rolls the tray in and out. check properly you will see a belt '' blader kind of'' plz replace with brand new one it will work fresh coz if the belt is worn out then it means motor can not pull the gears to enable opening and clossing of your cd tray

Need Remote fo RCA DRC8312N DVD-VCR Combo Thanks, Monte Haun [email protected]

My original remote malfunctioned for my RCA DRC8312N. I have purchased a RCA universal remote # RCR6473. I have used code # 3242 for the DVD code.It does almost everything that the original remote did except to open the DVD door. You just need to experiment with the onscreen info display in order to change title names and thumbnails etc. The remote also works great for other euipment functions as well as working features on my Sharp tv.

Tne dvd door will not open

These are instructions to open door if DVD is jammed or the DVD recorder wont open.

Unscrew the 7 cover screws and the 2 foot screws. Remover player cover.

Pry the front control cover off from the top of the player and not the bottom with a thin screw driver paying attention not to crack or break the tabs. Just lift them enough to clear the hooks.Then lower the cover withut removing it so you can gain access to the DVD front internal bezel.

On the left side of the DVD recorder there is a notch with a lever in it. gently push on it as this is the release for the DVD door. Remove DVD from tray and close.

Re-install all covers and screws. Machine should work after this.

DVD Door "Blocked"

If you look at the cover of the DVD drive itself, you will see a white wheel. This wheel has 2 magnetic washers in it. Once you have the cover with the wheel on it removed, unclip the two halves of the wheel remove one of the magnetic washers then reassemble everything as it was before (Minus one magnetic washer) and the drive should work perfectly. I have had three of these recorders all of the developed this problem, the first 2 were in warranty so I got them replaced, the third is one of those replacements and broke after the warranty so I fixed it myself (after MF services in cork said it was "Uneconomical to repair" and they said it needed a new hard drive, when the hard drive is in perfect working order!) It looks like the two magnets are too strong and overtime something in the drive wears down and causes this malfunction!
Hope this helps, and hopefully you haven't already bought a replacement!



You can order a new drive from Zenith parts 1-877-993-6484 - the unit information is ...

6721rd021c $100.94 - 2 day shipping

When I get home I'm going to crack the shell on the DVD drive inside the combo set and see if it;s a simple 'off the shelf' RICOH/PANASONIC/MATSUSHITA DVD-R drive tho. If it is, the replacement part (but not the spec. part from Zenith) from Fryes might be faster and cheaper? Not sure yet.

Disc Tray will not open

DVD door is opened by a small pulley-belt system. Disconnect the power cord and remove cover on R6740 (one screw on each side and 3 in back). Remove top cover on DVD drive (4 screws on top). Manually open door; you will see a small "O" ring sized rubber belt (they stretch and lose flexibility with time, which is why the door stops working). Remove and replace belt. I found a 11/16" X 1/16 belt at Lowe's in the plumbing dept @ 2 for $.59. Its not a perfect fit, but the door works now!
