Question about Sony RDR-VX420 DVD Recorder/VCR
I was recording a short programme onto a disc that already had things on it. When I pressed the Stop button the machine appeared to freeze and I had to turn the Recorder off at the switch and turn back on again. when i reloaded the disc, the message ' the disc can neither be played nor recorded' appeared on the screen and the message 'Disc Err' appeared on the Recorder. Does this mean that everything recorded on this disc has now been lost?

I have the same unit. Similar problem but mine does not erase the disc. It says disc error on almost all dvd that are store bought and kicks them out. Will play almost all of the ones I recorded on it and finalized. I must let a disc in it at all times or door will not open. Lots of bad stuff on the net about this unit. It is a lemon! Mine is out of warranty and sony wants $175 to fix. Saw some blogs where it was serviced 3 times and still not right. Buy a new one before investing in the unit you have as there are many gremlins in it! Sorry I cannot offer specific help but this is where I am at!!

Without much more info the only thing I can think of is the lens is not homing correctly. If you are comfortable opening the unit, check to make sure the lens can move freely (from center to outside of disc). It's OK to gently move the lens with the unit unplugged.

The part re the other channels having no signal....I had the same problem with mine and that was because the small loop cable in the back wasnt right. I could watch all channels, press record and still watch that channel but try to watch a diff channel while its recording and they were gone. As soon as I had the loop cable in properly it solved the problem. Hope this helps....

Ok you might need to have it cleaned professionaly worse comes to worse have the lens replaced, something ether got on the lens or the laser is not reading or writing correctly. Can it be fixed? Sure depning on the problem inside I could not tall you 100 p[ercent as I have not looked at the unit.
You might want to take a gander inside and see if the lends is not dirty.
Thanks an please rember to leave postive ratings and feedback.
