I had this problem, it was solved by reformatting the hard-drive.

NOTE: if you do this, all settings and all that is saved on the harddrive is lost. But seeing that you can't start it anyway, that is acceptable, right? :)

Anyway, here's how you do it, according to Philips support:

  1. Pull out the power cord from the socket.
  2. Press and hold PREV and STOP (i.e. left and down) on the front panel.
  3. Plug the power cord into the socket again.
  4. Wait until the front panel says "FMT KEY" to let go of the buttons. Wait for it to finish formatting, upon which you will get "-- --" on the panel.
Restart the box and you should now end up at a screen asking you to set the language for the box, as if being started for the first time ever.

Also of note: if you want to restore the firmware to factory settings, Philips support told me to pull the cord, press and hold the STANDBY button, and plug it back in again. For the looping problem though, I didn't need that.

double check the firmware from philips website, but most likely that hard drive has an internal problem

Philips DVDR3570H HDD DVD player Recorder - done basic set up last night but the start up search for analogue channels returned 0 - speant 2 hours re arranging plugs & it still wouldn't locate them? do...


The DVDR3570H will only find analogue channels if you have a TV aerial connected to it.

If you only have a satellite or cable box, then you can still use the recorder, but you will have to use the AV inputs on the recorder. In this case you will only be able to record the satellite or cable channel you are watching.

Problem Recording HDD to DVD-R


Hi,

I had a few problems with my philips 3450 - I downloaded the latest software upgrade at www.philips.com/support , and my issues were resolved. Worth a shot...

Only other thing I can think of is you may have a faulty batch of DVD-Rs?

Best of luck!
