Question about Toshiba D-VR4 DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

My dvd always shows "system error" and won't play commercial copyright dvds, only recorded ones.

My dvd player has a problem. When I try to play a published copyrighted dvd, a message keeps flashing on my screen "system error, please wait." I waited for about an hour, and when I returned to the tv, it still said the same message. However, before we had this problem with the dvd player, we had dubbed some vhs tapes and converted them into dvds, on this dvd player. when we stuck these dvds, which were recorded on the dvd player itself, into the dvd player, they worked. So we concluded that only recorded dvds could be played, and copyrighted ones could not. What should I do to get rid of that message and play any dvd that i put in there?

    I have dubbed multiple VHS segments to DVD and finalized the disc. when I go to play back on DVD player or PC only the first chapter plays. PC shows all data is there.

Disc error message when load DVD


Are you loading to play or to record?
Commercial DVDs should play.
DVDs for recording may not be recognized by your drive. First make sure that the disc is blank. You must insert a blank disc of the proper format: DVD-R or RW, DVD+R or RW. Even with the proper format, some brands may not behave the same way as other brands.

Unreadable disk error


The laser in 5101 could be defective or maybe just dirty.Try cleaning with a commercial cleaning disc,put a drop of rubbing alcohol on cleaning brushes.When this happens sometimes it will still be a usable disc but not always.Try putting in another dvd player or recorder or your PC if it plays dvds,the readers in PC are of a better quality and will often read discs that those cheap dvd readers can't.
R+ or R- discs need to finalized after recording RW+and RW- discs do not.It is always a good policy to finalze the second your recording is finished otherwise it may not play in other players or recorders.
When you make a recording in a dvd recorder an it doensn't recognize the disc it just recorded it quite often has a defective laser.This particular model has been plagued with early laser failure.
