I have a philips dvdr 520h, i understand that the same as the Liteon LVW 5045.
I have a little issue of no screen, it powers up with ‘hello’ on the dvd but no picture, created a rom update disc (original from philips) but nothing happens.
There is a jumper on the board jp8, i’m guessing when this is jumpered it goes into some kinf of diag mode, of course i’ve no idea what anything means.
So two things,
Is there a way to kill the current rom and return to original, i.e. if there is an inbuilt backup rom is there a way to force its use?
how to re-install with no screen at all, or do i just chuck it and keep the working h/disk (out of warranty)
BTW i have never had this working got it faulty, the h/disk is good, can see it when plugged into PC, all kinds of crap on it from previous owner unsure if anything specific is supposed to be on there or not, looks like a standard pc dump drive nothing specific looking like a special dir. structure to me. Any ideas if missing anything.
No screen if also if dvd/h.disk removed either. (as not sure if its been fiddled with) Tried another dvd writer was NEC would this work?
