    Yes I tride cleaning but as not made any diference. I put the wrong name of the recorder it is a Panasonic and not a pioneer, it is suposed to write on DVD Ram DVD-R AND RW and DVD +R but I have discovered that it will record on DVD-R and +R only and will not record on DVD Ram or any RW Discs the recorder keeps saying unsuported media type. But used to work fine up until a month ago.

I cannot format either dvd-r or rws with this machine.


try a single disk, but make sure format is not (-r or -rw; but +r or+rw )negative is mostly for computers, and positive is mostly for dvds and such; should find single at walgreens or wal-mart.

Recording onto DVD


That's because the DVD+R and DVD-R discs are actually different, and the recorder is made to record only on the +R media. It will play back discs recorded by other units on -R discs. But you'll need to purchase the +R type. They are the same price.

Hope you've found this helpful. Please take a moment to rate my solution, and thanks for asking here!

Can't record anything....dvr won't recognize blank


Not sure, but could be as simple as switching to a dvd-rw disc. Not all recorders recognize all formats.

Eror code ec - 207


Not sure what the code itself means, but if the disc was recorded on another recorder, and not finalized, it will not play back on any other player but the one it was recorded on.

Dvr 1200 will not play


After you have recorded you must "FINALIZE" the disk in order to play it in other DVD players or CPU. Press EDIT scroll down to Finalize Disc then OK

CyberHome DVD Recorder - DVR1600 says No disc when there is a disc


Hi! Pick a jhonson's bud -- dip it into the lens cleaner solution -- rub gently on the lens both clockwise and anticlockwsie -- leave it to dry -- cover up -- run the machine.. but be careful -- don't touch the lens with ur finger and dont try to rub roughly -- lens may go forever. still if the problem remains , replace the lens. chhoton
