Please help. Basically the unit is very slow in responding.

Re: DVD Recorder

During MY long, intensive, painful research concerning the EXACT same problems, I've discovered that in ONE circumstance, these problems are caused whenever the recorder has INPUT (COAX, AV, etc), from a CABLE box!!!! Assuming the controls haven't already frozen, I disconnected the CABLE box from the recorder, and the recorder "came back to life!!!" And this, after bring my recorder in for "repair", THREE TIMES!!! Now, the only thing to resolve is: how to connect the CABLE BOX to the recorder--WITHOUT using any of the recorder's input jacks!!!! Progress, right?

Dvdr tray

You have one of the following problems:
  • The device freezes and does not react anymore to the remote control commands.
  • The DVD is stuck in the tray. Sometimes the message BLOCKED appears.
  • A feature is not available in the menu without any logical reason.
  • A feature of the device does not work (for example start install).
  • There is some problem with the device you cannot solve.

Reset the DVD recorder.
  1. Unplug the mains cord from the mains wall outlet.
  2. Press the POWER/ON button on the DVD recorder itself.
  3. While keeping the POWER/ON button pressed connect the main power cord to the wall outlet again. A message IS TV ON? or a demo message will appear in the display.
  4. Start the first installation process.

    1. The settings of the DVD recorder will return to their default settings. Install the DVD recorder as if it came out of the box.
    2. The data on the hard disc will not be affected.

I had the same problem. Powering down and rebooting (unplugging) the recorder fixed the problem.

Had this same problem and found the solution elsewhere on the net. Hold down the "1" button and the "Enter" button for aprox 10 seconds while pointing at the player. This "resets" the remote. I was skeptical when I first read this solution but it worked for me!

Toshiba DVD recorder problem

Generally, this problem is caused by bad sectors or other problems on the hard drive and can be resolved by going into the setup menu and re-formatting the hard drive. Of course, all recordings on the hard drive will be erased, so spin them off to dvd first. Be sure to have unplugged and replugged the unit immediately prior to going into the setup menu (don't try to record anything). If this doesn't work, no-one will repair this unit locally, as it must be returned to Toshiba's(TACP) depot for repair. Best of luck.
