Hi all
I have an LG DR275 dvd recorder. after inserting a disc into it it tries to read and play it but to no avail - it display shaws "reading" and after a while it changes to "open" and the drawer opens. I beleive that the problem is with the drive, since cleaning the lens was no help. if that's indeed, does somebody knows where I can find to buy a new drive?
Thanks.

Could be a weak laser. Try a regular music CD the information isn't as hard to read. This will tell you something.

Grease the rails make sure it's not getting hung up on the glides.

Buy a new DVD recorder (and a better make than LG), Sony had some DVD recorders made by LG, and they were absolutely CRAP!!.

Nice machines, well featured and worked great, but the mechs died in a very short time. To repair them you had to change the complete mech, and it was ludicrously expensive.
