My Toshiba DR430KU dvd recorder is not recording. I hit the record button, and the light comes on, saying that it is recording, but nothing gets recorded.
Secure the audio/video connection cables that attach the source device you are trying to record from. Try this step if you do not see a picture when trying to record from a source device onto the Device. After unplugging the cable and checking for any damage, plug the cables back and attempt to record the content to see if this resolved the problem.
Secure the power cable that attaches the device to an electrical source if the unit will not power on or if it intermittently loses power. If you think a malfunctioning surge protector may be at fault, you can 'bypass' the surge protector by plugging the device into an electrical outlet. Replace any surge protectors that appear to be malfunctioning and have an electrician examine any outlets that appear to be "dead."
Insert the disc that you would like to record
Press the "Edit Menu" button on the remote control while playing the disc or while playback is stopped.
Use the up and down arrows to select "DVD-Video Finalizing" in the on-screen menu, then press "Enter."
Under "Menu Create" select "None," then under "After play final title" select "Stop." Select "Next" to move to the next screen.
Select "Writing" in the lower right of the screen.
Select "Yes" or "No" to tell the machine if you want it to power down when finalizing is complete. Finalizing will then begin and a progress bar will appear.
Contact your electronics dealer or the Toshiba service department if the disc still does not finalize.
