    WELCOME APPEARS, THEN NO DISC MESSAGE EVEN WHEN THERE IS A DISC INSERTED

  • Anonymous Nov 24, 2007

    Sounds like it is trying to open, but doesn't move. Unplugged unit, waited five minutes, plugged it back in, turned power on, push open button, says it is opening, doesn't open, then tries to load disk. Remote control gets the same result. If someone knows the correct way to take it apart, I'll give it a go.

    I turn the machine on,hit the open button, Machine says it's "opening" and doesn't open and tries to load the disc that's already in there. I would appreciate some input.

    Thank you,

    Need some help about my problem because when I turned on this DVD recorder it just say's HELLO I already unplug and plug it in but still nothing happened. I think the problem there is the controller board ,and I need to replace it in order to work but I already emailed the customer service of the LITEOn ,on how I can get the replacement of that board but until now there's no reply..



    thanks..

Remove the cover of LVW and access the DVD assy,unscrew the 4 screws holding the DVD assy to the LVW bottom,remove the top and bottom shield (also 4 screws)and remove the top black plastic cover (4 screws).You will access the DVD spindle.Remove the disk if you still have a disk stuck inside.Visually check the spindle sticky rubber ring,most likely some sticky material migrated on top of the rubber ring and your DVD was stuck on it. Clean the best you can with a cleaner and a non lint cloth.I used a cleaner/degreaser for electronics.DO NOT POWER your LVW BEFORE reinstalling the black plastic cover.There is a laser inside !!! You may now try and if the drawer opens and closes, reassemble everything opposite way you disassembled.

Hi to all,

I had the same problem with my lvw-5005sx. The propblem was cat hair and dust. (I got 3 cats at home, lots of hair and furballs on floors).

Somehow, the dvd recorder sucked cat hair into the box and the cat hair got stucked around the spining gear that opens the tray.

Because the gear is belt driven, it did not take a lot of hair, dust to make it slip.

Try cleaning the two spining shaft and the belt.

Unplugging the power chord to unit for sometime (around 20 - 30 minutes) and plug back the power chord .
After that press the eject button for 30 seconds at times this may work and you can get back the dvd from the player .

SOURCE: Tray will not open

hi had the same problem, unscrew the top off from panel and just like a computer burner there is a button on the front of the burner on the inside independent of the eject button, that is away from the actual eject button. my friend drilled a small hole on the front near the burner from the outside and i stick an allen key through they hole and the tray will come open, not sure why the eject buttons are dodgy, but this should work. and do u know where i can get a replacement remote or which universal contol will work?

SOURCE: Liteon DVD recorder LVW-5045 has disc inside and won't open tray

Use your knuckles to knock on top of cabinet just above disc tray door while at the same time pressing open button,99% of the time disc tray will open.The problem you have is caused by a worn out belt drive or the tray is out of alignment.The disc tray belts only cost $2,when tray is open you can see the minature belt that controls door to the right.Use twizzers to remove and replace.Belt size 1.9

Lite On LVW 5005 tray will not open


Drives stick from time to time. Get a Paper Clip and straiten one end out. Look for the small hole on the front panel. Stick the clip end into the hole and push. The tray should open. Grab the tray and move it rapidly in and out seven or more times. This may stop the tray from sticking, and if not you know how to open it manually.

Invalid disc error


Most likely you need to replace the drive, they are very cheap on ebay. Here is how to replace it 1st power up and open tray then unplug. remove front of tray, it unclips at bottom, pull out and up then slides off. remove screws and take the entire drive out. Remove base plate of replacement drive and screw down into the two rear mountings. Remove facia of Recorder and cut out the three little pieces of moulding directly above where the tray drawer will be, this prevents the drive from being forced down at the front. With facia off fit the drive back onto the now screwed down base plate. Replace facia, connect drive power up and open drawer then unplug. On the drawer front cut off the centre small moulding because it doesn't line up with the cut outs in the drawer, the other two do, slide the front downwards onto the drawer then press at the bottom till it clips in. Job done. My 5005 now reads much faster and recognises all discs prior to this Invalid Disc on everything, cleaned lens and it would then only see pre-recorded films etc but no blank discs.

The tray won't open. There is a disk in the tray and I was able to play it back. But, when I tried to eject the disk, the tray woudn't open.


something like this is a physical problem. you should contact the manufacturer to see if there is a manual eject button and if not you will have to take it apart to get the disk.
