TV won't playback DVD-RW Disc recorded on another TV.
We have a 21" (I think-measured diagionally across TV) TruTech TV with a built in DVD player. I am trying to play a DVD-RW Disc recorded on anther DVD player. I get a "wrong disc" message on my TruTech TV when I try this. Why won't the recorded disc play on the TV?

You can try calling TruTech customer service for technical assistance at these telephone numbers. 1-888-252-6252 and 1-800-252-6123. They should be able to answer all your questions about the type of DVD's you can use with your television. I hope this helps you with your problem.

No,the DVD player build in tv can't record,only play DVD Disc only.Want to record personal VHS tapes only to DVD Discs,must have a seperate device unit VCR/DVD RECORDER device player not a device unit VCR/DVD PLAYER.Connected to the tv record VHS tapes to DVD Discs.
Although I am a member of this site I came across your post while searching Google for answers to the same issues as you are having.
From what you say and what I have tried I can only put fault with the DVD recorder itself and probably the LASER.
This thing just seems to hate reading recorded media of almost any format including those which it's stickered front panel boasts about. It also doesn't leave you with many other options as there is no USB port either.
I dont use the unit to record or the Freeview facility and never have as we have Sky+ and no TV ariel.
I bought it for the varied formats of video it says it can play but out of 6 different formats that I recorded onto DVD with my PC (and I am an advanced user and work in I.T) it only played back one and badly which was a mpeg-1.
I put the same 6 disks into my sons (apparantly DVD only) player bought from ASDA for £15 and it played 4 of them perfectly as good as the originals!
Logically this would suggest this model is a Lemon. I just hope your not a £130 light lemon as I am!
if you recorded using a dvd- disc then it needs to be finalized on the recorder to allow it to be played on most other players. if you used a dvd+ disc then the other player(s) may not support dvd+ playback.
You indicated you have a DVD PLAYER, not DVD recorder. You cannot record on to a DVD on a player, you need to buy a DVD recorder/player. Unlike a VCR which stands for Video Cassett Recorder which can record and playback video. DVD recorder technolgy much more complicated.
It could be that the DVD player has a bad home switch in the dvd player or that it doesn't know that the door is closed. I have run into similar situations with CD Players years ago. Also keep in mind to unplug unit and let sit for 1 minute to let microprocessor reset. Let me know if that helps. Thank you ...Jay
