Problem recording with SJ-MR220

I am having trouble recording with the SJ-MR220. I set it up to record in the normal manner and the levels and time indicate that it is recording, I then stop it and it says it is writing the disc but when I go to playback the disc is blank. I am recording out of a dj mixer using a stereo Y cable into the line input. I monitor it whilst it is recording and it seems to be going through fine and it always looks like it has recorded and written the disc. I have never had this problem with any other MD recorder. A friend gave me this unit so it is second hand but I don't think it has had any use before. I do have the manuals but I can see nothing from them that I am doing wrong. Please help!

You can only record to dvd-ram or dvd-r NOT dvd-rw!

SOURCE: DVD Recorder will not format blank DVDs

I kept formatting DVD's until I got the unit to work. Mainly, it was some DVD's I had earlier problems formatting. I tried two new DVD's (Maxell DVD-RW) and they worked thus far. I truly think the unit needs to be taken to authorized service center for evaluation or minor maintenance. My suggestion is to verify the DVD's will work with unit. Try to use better quality ones like TDK or Maxell. Thanks for responding to my problem. If I have others, I will contact you.

SOURCE: Problem with Playback and Record on camera

The fix is really easy and costs nothing, just 10 minutes of your time!

*I fixed mine (twice) this way*

Turn the cam over.
remove all the screws holding the dark plastic bottom on the camcorder, remove it carefully.
Now you will see the ribbon cables, VERY GENTLY, wiggle them from left to right (about 1mm each way), then push them in.
Test by putting your battery back on and see if it holds a tape, or plays without blinking and switching off - you will be happy.

The fault is simply that one cable (I can't tell you which one) becomes loose over time, so it just needs to be pushed back in and the condensation error and/or the door closing problem go away!

A lot of folks are buying cams off eBay like this as it's such a simple repair!

Good luck - please help others - post back if it works!

SOURCE: DVD recording problems

I have the same unit with the same exact problem. I ended up taking it in for repair and it's now working perfectly. I paid $100 for the repair. I dropped the unit off and picked it up myself. I think $30 additional is charged for shipping and handling in US.

How can I stop clipping in audacity, Is there any way I can set audacity so it doesnt clip?


Sounds like you have too much volume range in your recording. If it is what I think it is you could use an automatic volume limiter on the input of the AudiCity recorder.

How can I digitize cassette tapes using the Marantz PMD670?


Take a set of RCA Jack cords (4 jacks) and on the tape recorders "out" jacks attach one pair and on the PMD 670's "In" Jacks attach the other pair. Set the tape a few seconds before where you want to record , set your levels to where you want them, start the recorder then start recording with the PMD.

You may need to test record a few seconds to make sure the recording is at the level you want it to be. Plug in a set of headphones to the PMD and listen in from time to time to make sure it's recording OK.

There you go.

Best,

Dan

It is not recording. I press play then I record. When I am finished I press stop. I then press finalize then record. But it does not record. Am I following the proper recording sequence?


Don't you have the manual?

http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/c/cdr870_17/cdr870_17_dfu_eng.pdf

Press REC and the RECORD indicator will start flashing when the unit is ready to record. You can set your levels for an analog input by playing it while in this mode.

When your source is ready and you have your levels set up, press PLAY on both units.

If you don't see the time incrementing , it's just standing still.

Total recording time window won't work


I had this same issue when trying to record direct to DVD with 2.5, and could not solve it. Then, I finally ran through the wizard, and it indicated the maximum length for each level of video quality (DVD HQ, DVD LP, DVD SP, etc) - something to the effect of "At this quality, your device can record XXX minutes of video".

Once I set it to a quality level that exceeded the length I needed, I was able to proceed without any problem.

Trouble viewing recorded time-lapse recorder tape.


Sounds like the heads on your TLC 2100 Time-lapse recorder are in their last legs. This is normal for those units. The reason you are having those scramble lines towards the top of the screen is because you are not playing at normal play speed.
The problem with the switching between cameras is that the "dwell time" settings is set to high. Most dvr's you can just disable that.
If you are looking to upgrade look here.

Teac cassette deck records at very low volume


Tape decks have a record amp, depending on the age of the machine it will probably be an IC. Yours might have failed. See if you can identify it or try and get a C diagram. To locate it follow the leads from the head. If your lucky it might have 'Rec Amp' on the board. Their maybe a preset marked 'rec level' for each channel. The (IC) box with legs - near them will most likely be it. Don't adjust the presets unless somebody has tampered with them before. (they will look to be sitting around the middle if they are OK).

Magnovox MWR20V6 will not begin recording when it should.


This is more a work-around than a solution, as the unit is failing to function normally; however, having the identical problem I observed that the unit is failing to power on at 2:00 minutes before beginning recording, a necessary step to record to DVD.

My work-around is the following:

1) Set up the timer, inputting necessary date, time, etc. as normal. With the unit still powered on, start the timed recording mode by pressing timer set, as normal. You will see the red clock icon and the DVD logo iluminate on the VFD.

2) Press the Standby-On power button. This will power the unit on in VCR mode. You should at this time be unable to switch from VCR to DVD mode since the DVD is still in timer mode. LEAVE THE UNIT POWERED ON in this manner. The timer will function and the DVD will record normally.

I have no clue why my unit suddenly forgot how to power up on its own in order to record to DVD. If anyone has an answer for that one please post!
