I’ve read all the posts about replacing the drive on a Liteon LVW-5006 recorder but I’m kinda confused. I’m having trouble finding most of the drives mentioned. Can anyone provide a link to a good deal on a drive that I could pop into the unit right out of the box? Thanks…
Most of the drives mentioned are old ones, youll have to try with a hit and miss with newer ones. Again replacing with one of the newer drives wont always work but you might get lucky.
The Sony DRU-V204A seems to be a good choice these days (I did a quick test on one in a 5007 and it looks fine, but I don’t have a 5006). If you’re in the US, it’s on sale this week at staples.com for $24.95 and you can probably get them to match that price in-store (or else order for store delivery).
Don’t completely give up on the burner that’s already in your 5006 before trying to clean the “spindle” as described in http://club.cdfreaks.com/f106/fixing-your-panny-when-theres-fault-lens-cleaning-doesnt-help-210507/#post1702503.
