Press all buttons you can. unplug then re-plug several times. can't do anything on a unit that doesn't power on.

HI,

Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

The only solution to this is to get it repaired.

The low cliking noise usually indicates a failed recorder Hard drive. This is also known as "click of death". You can try connecting the Hard drive to a PC and run diagnostic utilities such as Check disk,Norton DIsk doctor etc., If there are too many bad blocks found then you will have to get a new HDD for your recorder.

Hope this helps,
Sai.

If the unit clicks at regular interval, there is no disk inside, and unit does not come out from standby state, then it looks like the DVD started protect mode.

When an electronic device like your DVD detects an internal faults it goes in protection, that is a special diagnostic mode.

When in this state the device starts a safety switch that will prevent device from starting, to avoid further damage to the internal circuit.

Protection can be started by any internal fault, such as a bad voltage, a short, or any faulty component, like for example a blown capacitor , or a defective IC.

Things that you can try:

Unplug power cable for ten minutes.

If there is a disk inside take it out, by pressing eject many times wilst the unit is starting.

Hold down the start button (play on some model) while you plug the power back, this will reset the unit.

If the reset does not restart, that means that there is for real a fault, and it is not a matter of a jammed IC, for example because of electrostatic charges.

In that case the unit must be taken apart by a technician, tested , and repaired replacing the faulty components. This can be done only testing thoroughly the components on-board, and using a solderer to replace the defective component.

    I see you are refusing all solution.

    The unit is faulty and in error state, and must be takent to a repair shop.

    Call the number listed on the owner manual if you decide to call a technician.

    Read back my last comment if you want to know more about the fault.

    Goodbye

You need a new motor. If you don't get the message by now, there's no point in trying.

You need a new motor.

You are better off replacing it with a $50 DVD player, and using your PC to burn with Personal Video Recorder software. You run a S Video cable to your PC from the satellite or cable box.

This is much more sensible.

    From VideoHelp dot com

    POOR build quality and unstable firmware make this clone of the Sampo DVE-R6
    a recorder to steer clear of.
    Problems begin from the moment you open the box. Despite being a UK model the recorder arrives fresh with a two pin US-style plug so you'll need a new three pin plug and a screwdriver handy.
    The instructions claim the recorder is compatible with DVD-R and DVD-RW discs but in my experience the unit chokes on any home burned discs. Even worse, the recorder crashes and has to be reset by switching off at the mains. In extreme cases even that fails to correct the problem and you'll have to get the pesky screwdriver out again to remove the case and extract the disc manually!
    VCD playback is straightforward.
    The on-screen graphics are poor (shades of a Sinclair ZX 81 home computer) and don't respond as you (and the instruction manual) expects. Where, for example, is the countdown when finalising a disc? (Clue: it only exists in the imagination of whoever wrote the poorly worded English instructions)
    Recordings can be edited (insert, delete and hide chapter) but not renamed. You can, at least, grab a movie's credits for the menu thumbnail.
    The remote is a poor affair - flimsy and littered with buttons it makes it too easy to press the wrong one.
    Typically for a Philips +R/RW clone, you have to press the "monitor" button before you can watch an incoming video signal - dumb.
    Only one SCART accepts a video signal the other is output only and there's no RGB support so the best you can do is use the S-VHS socket.
    A built in DD decoder and six phono outs are handy as are the component video outs (although prog scan is limited to NTSC signals only).
    The biggest problem, however, is the unit's sluggish response times and its inability to finalise DVD+R failed. The noisy unit (it sounds as though it is chewing on a bone) just spins for a minute and says everything is fine - it isn't.
    When this happens it is time for another mains switch off.
    This recorder may retail for less than £100 in the UK but in terms of build and reliability it can't even match a £39 VHS recorder.
    Sampo has a strong reputation for making fine DVD players but on this showing it needs to get its recording act together - and quick - if it isn't to lose out to fellow budget beaters Liteon.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, lets try a process of elimination:

  • power supply (unlikely), unit can still produce ticking sound presumably a relay or electromechanical device;
  • interface & electronics (a possibility), further diagnosis required; any other indicators, display, LEDs lit, blinking light;
  • electromechanical (a strong possibility) which could include servo motor, laser carriage, traverse motor, spindle motor, loading tray motor; possibly involve gearing and other mechanical component.
Recommendations:
  • if considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) then service manual is a plus or at the very least a schematic diagram;
  • access and familiarity with electronic components & circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron;
  • if uncomfortable with a DIY, services of a qualified professional should be sought;
  • explore warranty options.
Should you find this posting informative and points you in the right direction, then pls ACCEPT. If however you decide to REJECT and/or request additional feedback, then possibly, further information from Benimur would no longer be viewable.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    Appreciate your postback and hope that this post would still be viewable to you. Other ideas you can explore:


    • reset by switching off/unplugging at the mains;

    • should there be a disc inside, and the reset/unplug fails to correct the problem use the included screwdriver to remove the case and extract the disc manually;

    • a times it may be necessary signal press the "monitor" button before you can watch an incoming video.

    Have you opened the unit? If yes, could you also inspect the flat ribbon cable and ensure that it is plug into the connector securely...

Hi,
Problem seems in power supply board in Relisys RDVR250
and most probably its hardware failure.
If this unit is under warranty, please ask supplier for warranty cover or you need tech person to examine this unit.

Hi,

try to load some dvd and look the edge of the disc if there some scratch then, your disc that you use is generic and not in normal size. and also if load a cd. if there still a noise look again the edge of the cd.

and try load a new disc if there still a noise. if none, then it is ok. if there still a noise and look at the edge for scratch. if still . your should carefully look for a disc with normal size, that's all you want to secure. most do not used a generic one. make it branded.

    can we go back to basic if we can, unplug all the connections, except the power and then turn your player. if it is ok then.

    check the wire connection if it is in the right ports. if have some changes then after check again.

    replace your cords/connectors audio, video. if you have some spares. and then again. or repalce with new connectors audio video if you can. and try again

    but if it is not then, i'd rather refer you to a qualified service technician in your area.

How long have you owned this player? How long have you had this problem? Most likely you will need to have the unit serviced by a professional. Please take a moment to accept and rate the solution accordingly.
Thanks,

Once power is on hello is contineously scrolling DVD eject is not working


A couple of universal things you can try. Power unit off, unplug for 5 minutes, plug back in, power on.

Another thing to try is same as above, but when powering unit on, also press the stop button at same time.

That has worked for me in the past. Hope this helps.

Hello, when dubbing from DV mini tape to HDD


well one solution may be the speed you are recording at. L.P. recording on a dvd often creates this problem. but usually it is when you copy dvd to dvd, not mini dvd to dvd
Never record more than 2 hrs on a disk
there are programs for a work around that reprocess the dvd vob file with adjustments for the sync.
could also be a hardware problem
is your mini dv long play source as well?

Cheers

Polaroid dra-01601a hdd to dvd recording


You will have to split the title and record on more than one DVD. The default speed is SP, that is 2 hours of recording. If you want to record longer programs, go into setup and change the default record speed to one of the other settings, for example: SP+ which is 2 1/2 hours or one of the other longer record settings. This DVD burner will only record at the same speed as you recorded to the hard drive. You can also edit out the commercials by using segment. Go to the title you want, press the right arrow, scroll down and select segment. When you want to start your edit, press enter. when you want to stop the edit, press enter again. You can use your right arrow to skip forward 30 seconds and your left arrow to skip back 10 seconds if you went too far when editing. You will see where your edits are on the screen by the darker color. Do this through the whole program. When you record to DVD, the commercials will not be recorded. Hope this helps you.
