Question about Insignia IS-DVD1001 DVD Recorder/VCR
I have been recording DVDs for months,all of sudden my recorder isn't working. After the recoding is done, it says I think, writing to menu. This used to takemomets, now it takes for ever. Eventually it kicks the disk out. When I reload th the disk,it says disk error. this has happened the last 10 movies I tried to record. Is the recorder shot?

I have done a lot of dubbing on my machine. First make sure the DVD is formatted. When you put in a new disc it should ask you if you want to initialize. Once that is done, switch to VCR mode. push play on the VCR then push the DUB button on the front of the machine. I hope it helps.

You may need to have you unit checked out for aging of the laser, or some weakening of the units drive circuits. You can call Insignia Technical Support at this number : 1-877-467-4289. You can also try cleaning the laser head with Isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab. Gently try cleaning the laser by rubbing the cotton swab with very little alcohol until the head seems clean and shines. Do not use too much pressure or you may damage the alignment of the laser. Also used a can of compressed air to blow clean any excess dust and debris in the drive carriage. Hope this helps you with your problem.
