Help! When playing back DVDs, I've recently encountered problems where the unit just "stops".....sometimes it locks up when initially loading the disk, and you can't break out of it without unplugging the unit. Other times in the middle of playback it will just shut off completely. Any ideas? Thanks

Hello Enter the Menu screen, select, preference, select default, and OK. If the problem is with password forgot, the default passord of this unit is [ 3308]. Enter this password on the first screen. Sometimes the unit won't accept this passord for the first time to cheat you, enter this pasword again. After that, you can enter your own passord. OK.
stay with the 8x dvd (these recorders look and only work with certain types of dvds)...if your manual says maxell stay with it dont look for the brandless sale...use 8x unless your have updated your machine with new firmware from the mfr. for that 16x...are you trying to record HBO / DISNEY? its not going to be allowed on DVD...yes you can record both onto tape...but not digital..(I put all my movies onto dvd, my kids still have tape DISNEY)
First check and see what is happening inside. Take something small and stick n the lock mech, which is the hold that a small part of you top to the player sticks in to tell the unit that it is closed. See if the lense light up and moves up and down and also see if it moves forward a bit and back to start position. If player does not do any of this then with fingers move lense down line abit to see if anything is obstruting path. You can move all the way down then place DVD in and try again
