    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

Recorded DVD will not play in another player

Maybe the format of your recorded movie didnt support your player..check out your manual for the supported formats and check the format of your recorded movie.If any of the format in the manual matches your movie format then it will definitely play..
please rate my suggestion..

My philips dvd recorder is not letting me open the disc drawer. it tells me blocked, i can hear it trying to but is unable to. i have tried to restore factory settings but it has not helped

These methods have been shown to work

The electronic procedure:

Switch off the unit at the wall plug. On the front panel, hold in the <RECORD> and <EJECT> buttons at the same time, and keeping them held, switch on the power at the wall again. Keep holding the buttons until the disc tray opens.

The manual procedure:
There should be a small slot on the lower side of the unit near the front and center of the disc assembly. By sliding a small plastic numb from one side to the other unlocks the door so it can maually be opened the rest of the way. You will need a strong, thin object to slide that release nub. A small knife or nail would work. Of course you should follow all safety precaution such as removing power and not damaging anything else.
