Pioneer DVR-109 Dying?



Recently I just hopped onto Taiyo Yuden DVD-R’s from SuperMediaStore and with 8x DVD-R’s burned @ 4x I get disc scans on TY Media like these…

My TDK branded CMC DVD+R’s come up with similar scans, just slightly worse but with quality level around 20-25 percent…

Could it be that my DVR-109’s laser diode is about to go out?


You cannot trust Pioneer scans. Thus, all you can do is try to play them back. If they work for you, and play back fine, DON’T worry. :slight_smile:
