Re: Blocked error message

I would imagine it's eitehr a Region problem or a parental level problem. Ensure the region DVD matches the Region of your DVD player. Also check the parental rating level within the DVD player is not active or set to 18.

CAnt eject DVD disc. Get message ''blocked'' Machine will play the DVD but when I try to eject nothing happens other than the message. What size lump hammer should I use?

if you want to just get the disc out there should be a tiny hole on the front of the drive where you can insert a paper clip firmly to eject the drive.

I would also check the rubber band / cogs by taking a look inside and see if there are any issues.

Also if you reboot do you get the same problem ?

First, make sure the DVD Recorder is completely disconnected from the Main Supply.

Then, if you look on the base of the unit, (just underneath the front of the Disc Insert/Eject Tray), there is a small slot, (approx 25 x 8mm), in which you can see a small, white, plastic lever probably situated near the right-hand side of the slot.

Then move this lever gently to the left, and then turn it on and the tray opens by pushing the button.

"BLOCKED" message

Solution 1: Most likely there is a foreign mechanical object obstructing the tray mechanism. If, like me, you have kids around every corner then most likely a curious little one has pushed something in to see "just what will happen". With some luck you can solve the problem by opening up the unit (power-off, unplugging first, of course) and doing a visual inspection for what shouldn't be there (pieces of paper, coins, toothpicks, fibres, etc).

Alternative Solution 2: Sometimes what happens is that the tray loading belt slackens over the years (age, humidity, over usage) and fails to respond quickly enough. In the absence of any obvious foreign object(s) this is a likely alternative explanation. Drive-tray electronics (called SERVOS) are programmed to expect timing signals to come within well-defined intervals of time. If this does not happen (such as due to a slack belt), then the condition is registered as an error. Try replacing the belt if solution 1 does not work.
