Written on: 18/11/2008

This seems to happen to LOTS of owners of MANY brands, many well-known ones. These things should ALL have the little paper-clip hole, even though I know that won't always work. The LiteOn people have not yet as far as I am aware replied to the email I sent them requesting some help with this. Not impressed, but I loved it while it worked… Read Full Review

Casham's Comment

Written on: 25/11/2008

I have had nothing but problems from when I purchased the LVW 5006, then I decided to take the reader from the inside of the cassing and clean the lense, when taking apart the front part of the slide in and out tray came off (it was just a push on) when I put it back together I left off the front and behold I haven't had a problem since, it pre prepares all not formated disks and records and plays without any problems, its like a new machine. the reason I believe is the tray is not resricted from going all the way into the cassing giving the lense a chance read from the disc. if yours is playing up it is worth trying!!

Written on: 01/09/2007 by kc5807 (1 review written)

I purchased this LVW-5006 from Radio Shack. I paid $200.00 for it when I got it, Used for less than 40 days and all went to ruined disks. I had to carry it back... they kept it 6 weeks could not fix it. Sent me a refurb and it did not last 30 days, same problem. In total sent back 4 times, after last time it broke I opened up unit and saw it had same hook ups as computer DVD recorder so I got a longer cables and taped on outside lid, have recorded over 300 DVDs since then and had no further… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/01/2007 by Steve2D2 (1 review written)

I had my Lite-On LVW-5006 for about a year, with only small problems (such as it takes forever to record DVDs, especially if you have a lot of titles on the one DVD), but just the other day, it plain stopped working - It should be named "No-Write" instead of "All-Write", because now every single DVD I put in it comes up as "Invalid Disk". How can you possibly put an invalid disk into something that is meant to be able to record on ANY format? Save your money, and just DON'T buy it!… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/10/2006 by eddiebear (1 review written)

Since I bought this Lite-On LVW-5006 last December, I've had nothing but trouble. When I go to the setup and select pal and then Scart RGB, I then click OK to save the settings. When it is switched off, then switched back on, the settings have altered. The screen is monochrome yet again and then I have to reset the settings. I will never buy a Lite-On product again… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/08/2006 by Vandyb (2 reviews written)

I purchased this Lite-On LVW-5006 recorder for £99.99 which was great value for money considering the features. I always do my research and after only finding one poor rating, I decided to buy it. Since then I have regretted it and finally took it back for a refund.
Problems - Very noisy fan. Disc tray takes 15 seconds to open. Sometimes it would record, other times it would reject the blank disc, even the DVD+RW supplied with the recorder. It wouldn't recognise my camcorder through the DV… Read Full Review

I bought this dvd recorder with some doubt after reading the reviews however I have been very impressed. It only cost £79.99 from Currys and has some good features for the price.
It is dual format so it plays and records both + and - DVD's and it also plays CD's and jpeg/MP3 files, you can also record from VHS to DVD. Videoplus also makes it much easier to record programs.
Would certainly recommend… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/07/2006 by yelselseivad (2 reviews written)

Very few DVD's that I recorded on the Lite-On LVW-5006 DVD recorder were recognised on other players, which meant I couldn't copy from the video camera to DVD for friends and family, as the DVD's wouldn't work in their machines. It meant I had to transfer them to PC and fiddle about with software programs to make them compatible. Yesterday the thing sat down on me, and the DVD drawer just won't open. So it's useless. I paid quite a lot for this in Argos, and at the time it was over €200. I'm… Read Full Review

I have owned four Lite-On LVW 5006 DVD Recorders in the last 12 months, having taken three back to the point of purchase, I have been told that the fourth one is over three month old and is the manufacturers problem. Having contacted the manufacturer numerous times over the last 2 months, I still do not have a working machine and am having no joy getting the replacement. Look elsewhere for a DVD recorder, this company will leave you high and dry… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/04/2006 by twcybergeek (1 review written)

I bought my FIRST LiteOn LVW-5006 DVD recorder in March of 2005. The store where I bought it from exchanged it after 6 or 7 months, and after 4 trips to the repair shop. The second one is going straight back to LiteOn after 6 more months of unreliability. I have seen this thing kick out disks I recorded on that very same machine, and error out as bad disk or no disk. LiteOn is advertising a model 5005 they are calling an upgrade that on their web page is billed as the first DVD recorder to… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/04/2006 by mrsidman (1 review written)

Although the DVD recorder I have is the 5005, it should be similar to the LiteOn LVW- 5006. It was NOT that user friendly, and I had 2 problems:

1) It would say it was erasing a RW DVD and it did NOT, many times
2) It would simply Lock-Up and you I would have to unplug it to regain access

I would NOT buy another!… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/03/2006 by kelpetus27 (1 review written)

I bought the LiteOn LVW-5006 DVD recorder from Amazon for £79.99 (inc delivery)!

Visually, first impressions were it's a good looking unit, and a nicely laid out remote. I then integrated it into my TV system and powered it up. The unit is a joy to use, and it is so easy to make it do what you want. I bought it primarily for archiving stuff from my PVR and digital camcorder.

After thoroughly putting the unit through it's paces to see if it does what it says it can, I am very impressed… Read Full Review
