FAILED TO STOP RECORDING

Red light is on as if it is recording - however, when you press stop, it says finalising disc and then says failed to stop recording. The disk is then still blank - I have tried recording off tv and off sky box. I have inserted a DVD +RW disc that I had previously recorded programmes on but whilst it will play the previously recorded programmes, it still comes up failed to stop recording when I tried again to record on it ?? Any ideas - this recorder has been seldom used.

    having googled the DVD recorder, I have noticed that this seems to be a problem with Philips DVD recorders - nobody seems to have offered a solution yet so am assuming the DVD recorder is banjaxed!!!

SOURCE: Problem Recording HDD to DVD-R

Hi,

I had a few problems with my philips 3450 - I downloaded the latest software upgrade at www.philips.com/support , and my issues were resolved. Worth a shot...

Only other thing I can think of is you may have a faulty batch of DVD-Rs?

Best of luck!

SOURCE: How can I record a tv show onto a blank disc? I

Make sure you have the right DVD disc and the disc is clean if you do... (2) make sure you connected it right and are fully seated. LINE IN on your DVD-R is for the recorder part LINE OUT on the tv is to send it to the DVD-R If you done that try another RCA cable or two That should fix it

How do i select finalise on sharp dv-rw 250h remote control


If you are using the original remote or one which matches all of the functions, make sure that no DVD or VHS tape is being played and that the recorder is on. Make sure that there is sufficient space left on the disc. (The space needed depends on chapter/disc titles.) Then press Setup on the remote; it should be below the arrow keys but the position may vary. Use the Up/Down arrows to select System Setup and press Enter. Select Disc Setup and press Enter. Select Finalise and press Enter. Select Start with the Right/Left arrows and press Enter. Wait for the procedure to finish.

Note: only discs recorded on this particular device can be finalized on the DV-RW250H. On some other Sharp DVD recorders, the Disc Menu is accessed directly from the Setup menu.

I hope this helps.

Comes up succesfully copied but wont let me finalise


This is almost always a laser problem within the recorder. The recorder can write the disc but needs to write the TOC (table of contents) and can't do it (That's finalising). On occasion, the make of the DVD-r or DVD+r (they are different!) can fail to work on some machines. Try a different make of disc.

We ejected the cd accidentaly without finalizing from the HHB CDR850. we REALLY need this audio. what can we do?


sounds interesting

did the power fail during recording?

have you tried putting the cd back in the machine?

you should be able to finalise it as long as the PMA completed

the disc wont come out normally untill the PMA rec message finishes.

i have this machine myself.

there is a mode that will scan a disc if the PMA is missing

if power was turned off during recording it usually enters a "REPAIR" mode when turned on again.

this takes 40 mins to complete but the audio can be finalised as normal after it completes.

try putting the disc back in and see if it can be repaired or finalised

HOW TO FINALIZE THE DVD CASSETE AND CONNECT TO T.V SET?


Finalising a disc enables the disc to be played on any other compatible machine. By doing this it changes the disc format so that you can no longer record to it turning it into a Play Only disc. On your Panasonic DVD Recorder you can record to many (if not all depending on the model) of the following DVD Disc formats to the limit of their capacity over multiple occasions. The disc in question can be played back and recorded to on the DVD Recorder during this time but until it is finalised it will not work on any other machine.
DVD Formats: DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-RAM, DVD+R, DVD+RW.
How do I Finalise my disc?
  1. When you have finished the initial recording stop the disc and press the ~FUNCTIONS~button.
  2. Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad select "To Others" and press~ENTER~.
  3. Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad Scroll down to "DISC MANAGEMENT" and press ~ENTER~.
  4. When the disc management screen opens you need to use the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad to scroll down to "FINALIZE" and press ~ENTER~.
  5. Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad select "YES" and press~ENTER~.
  6. Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad select "START" to begin finalizing the disc, please note by pressing start here you will no longer be able to record or edit the disc being finalized.
Finalizing may take up to 15 minutes.
Do not disconnect the mains power in this time. A message appears when finalizing is finished, press the enter button when this appears. It will now play on other compatible machines.

How to finalise dvd recording


Press the menu button on your remote - go to finalize disc - follow instructions. Note that VR discs can be played with many if not most DVD-players without finalizing. In fact I have had problems finalizing and unfinalizing discs back and forth. If the disc manager displays only unfinalize disc, the disc is already finalized.

when you have split and seperated the part of the viceo you want to put onto a dvd, highlight it on the list of recordings and press the blue "playlist +" button on the remote. This will have added the recording onto the list of items to be recorded to dvd. Now press the red "RECORD/DUB" button. This will then record the file to the disc.

When y ou are notified that the process is complete,you will need to finalise the disc in order for it to be playable on other machines.
While the DVD is still in the drive uses the blue "function" button, and select DVD.
Shortly a list of titles on the DVD you have recorded will appear. Press the "UP" arrow on the remote once and a new menu will appear. One of the options here is to finalize disc. hilght this option and click the "RIGHT" arrow once - press "select" to finalise the disc.

Had the same problem, You have to press the mode button down which changes it to play and brings up the frames in the viewer. Then select Func, it will then give you a menu screen that shows finalise. What the manual does not say is press down the mode button to get the camera in play mode, when you do the gree light for play comes on.
Hope this helps
