Hello st2malo,

This sound like the driver circuits to the DVD spindle motor are malfunctioning. This usually is a sign the the power supply to the drive board is not working properly. However I would suggest that you take your TV to a television repair shop for servicing because this will involve having to troubleshoot to find the exact problem.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Purchased a Technika Model 19-220. 8 months ago never used the DVD recorder because we never had freeserve. Now we are connected to Freeserve the DVD will play DVD's but no accept blanks for recording...


Thanks for posting to Fixya and it is my pleasure to guide you.

"Will not accept blanks for recording it says No Disc."

from Technika manual: Start Quote
VCR/DVD Recorder; I have connected the TV to my VCR or DVD Recorder via SCART but it is not recording. In addition to connecting via SCART, you should connect the aerial cable from the wall socket to your VCR/DVD Recorder and another aerial cable from the VCR/DVD Recorder to the TV." Also; "Check the DVD is a region 2 disc - to change the region of the DVD player, refer to section 'Changing Regions'.

Note: USB record function is only avilable in Digital/Freeview TV/Radio mode. Due to copyright laws and illegal copying/recording it is not possible to record to/from any other input/output source.

DVD MENU: To access this menu, press [MENU] button on the remote control. TV System - Choose from the following options. NTSC; Normally used for discs from North America, Japan etc.
Auto; For both NTSC and PAL. This TV/DVD player is pre-set to play Region 2 DVDs.
Tip: This television contains one TV tuner, therefore it can only record the channel you are watching or record one channel while the television is in standby mode.

Tip: This TV/DVD player is pre-set to play Region 2 DVDs.

You can not record to a DVD, according to their manual. That is why you get the no disc error. It does not have the play sector at the beginning of the DVD. You can record to USB Flash Drive however.

Quote:
USB RECORD - DIGITAL/FREEVIEW MODE
Built into this television is a USB record facility. This function is available in Digital/Freeview mode when used in conjunction with a compatible USB memory stick or USB Hard drive. The benefi ts of this are as follows:
• Pause live TV/Radio and then playback, fast forward and rewind (up to live TV)
• One button record, if you decide you want to record the current programme
• Easy programmable recording from the 7 day TV Guide
• Record TV/Radio and watch/listen back on your computer/laptop
Due to the nature of the product, it is necessary to use a high speed USB memory stick (as the TV reads from and writes to the memory stick at the same time, some memory sticks may not be suitable). You can purchase high speed memory sticks from some computer stores, alternatively, we have a selection of tested and compatible memory sticks available to purchase directly from the helpline/web site. These are available in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB. (Please check the web site/helpline for latest specifications and prices). End Quote

Good luck and please post back that you this has solved your problem and click thumbs up of your success or that I can be more helpful.

Brian, Sorry to hear about your DVD problems.
If you have tried Boot up CD's and DVD's, like Restoration DVD's and they are being recognized by the unit but Blank DVD's are not, try changing the quality of the DVD's.
Example. I purchased a 3-Pack of cheap DVD's from Walgreens, N/G
Walmat, Sony Double layer ( Grate )
Hope this has helped you.

Samsung DVD player when disc put in after trying to load it comes up with a message disc error on all discs


it can be two possibilities. 1)either the disk is faulty.check out in another player or drive and confirm whether the disk is properly working. 2)or the lens in the drive which reads the disk is either faulty or got dusty.in the electronics shop you get lens cleaning cd.insert that in your drive and play it.it will spin for a period of time and stop.then insert your dvd disk and check out if the same problem.then drive inner lens is faulty and needs replacement.

Humax Tivo will not record to DVD


After the update to 1.15 I had to delete EVERY recording on the unit. After that, any new recordings would burn just fine. However, some have found that same failure even after a hard reboot (repower). Called Humax level-1 support and they suggested a replacement unit so I swapped it out. But I've since learned that TiVo "pushes" a DVD firmware patch (possible supplied by Humax) from 1.08 to 1.15 and that patch is the culprit. That patch is suppose to make the DVD burn at a higher spin rate. After talking with level-2 Humax support they heard of the problem and said "the unit is working as designed", meaning, the DVD drive manufacturer specs say the drive is capable of a faster burn rate. So now I have Humax DTR800 #2 and so-far-so-good, but TiVo hasn't pushed the patch onto the box yet!
