Question about Philips LX3000D System

1 Answer

Picture format I've had the Philips LX3000D for a couple of years now and never had any problems but recently when i play a dvd the picture keeps switching from widescreens format(with the 2 thick black lines at the top and bottom) to a picture with a black frame around it- i think this is called letterbox format (sorry i'm not at all technical). The result is that i cannot watch anything in peace because the picture keep switching format with a blinking effect! It will probably be something very simple to sort it but i just dont have a clue!

I have dubbed vcr tape to a Sony DVD-RW disc and tried playing it back through a toshiba player and it keeps coming up Bad Disk. My PC won't even recognise it. When started dubbing the screen displayed 1hr...


Did you say you used a DVD-RW disc to transfer a videotape onto? The reason your PC won't recognise that disc is because the data format on it is a different language to what PCs understand - plus an unfinalised DVD-RW won't play in other DVD players - it is usually an incompatible format.

(DVD+RW discs with titles/top menus created in video mode CAN be played on a PC DVD drive or a normal DVD player as can finalised DVD-R discs (DVD-R discs MUST be recorded and finalised in the same recorder for compatible playback). DVD-RW discs can only be viewed on the unit they were written/recorded on.

The other reason for the 'remaining space' on the disc you describe showing less than 120 minutes is due to a title recently being recorded or erased - unless you format it - the 120 minute / 4.7GB DVD-RW will not show full available space. Erasing titles on re-writable DVDs does not increase space. The same rule applies to unfinalised +R / -R discs (you cannot re-format these to get the space back once recorded - they are 'once only' writables)

I recommend you invest in some DVD-R discs and re-copy your VHS tape to that - then if you are satisfied with the result, title etc., finalise the DVD-R - it will play on any DVD player or PC with DVD support (or it should). These discs are relatively inexpensive to buy just about anywhere.

Final note: do NOT finalise the DVD-RW you recorded (I hope you haven't already done this) - simply format/erase it - re-use it for something else or keep it until you need it.

You can use any brand of DVD, just take note of the format before recording/playing.

No color and sporatic play on VCR mode, with zv420mw8


If this problem happened within a few seconds, you probably have dirty heads. If It happened slowly you could have an alignment problem. Both of these problems should be repair professionally.

Picture stretches


Using the remote, you should see a format button . You can go through the options for the best looking picture using this. or you can go to the settings menu for the TV and change the format to stretch or not.

Sound Cutting Out


If you looked for dry connections and found none, there is probably a componet that is intermittant, and these can be tough puppies to troubleshoot, without monitoring the power supply voltages and sittinfg with the unit.
