Presidian PDR 3222 Dvd Recprder

My Presidian Dvd Recorder has worked fine before, however now when I press record on the remote, nothing happens. The red record light does not come on, on the machine. And the machine just keeps trying to eject the disc. Any ideas on this one? It is just a month over a year old and I haven't recorded on it much. Does anyone know if the Remote Controls go bad or something? The Remote Control is the only way that I know of to turn it on to Record.

    My PDR3222has worked fine but it developed thisd problem.

    Using the Guider the remote works on the first menu of play, record etc. After the Record button the menu changes to AV1 Av2 TV etc. If I push AV2 it will not change to the next menu except sporadically. After activati\ng SP it may or may not go into the next menu and when it does after activating the GO button the RED RECORD light flashes once and goes out and nothing records. his all happened after successfully recording.

SOURCE: Presidian PDR 3222 not recording when record button pressed

I am beginning to think the machine works with slower discs but a firmware update will enable the machine to function with the newer "16x" and other discs. Unfortunately, neither Presidian nor the "real" manufacturer (whose name slipped my mind) seem to currently have the update available on their web sites.

I don't know if this will help, but according to the operator's manual I have, on page 64, the only place it mentions "Full" or "Quick" Preparation, is when using a DVD-RW disc. Apparently, with this type of disc, you must use the Full or Quick preparation INSTEAD of Finalizing after you're thru recording onto the disc.
With the DVD-R and DVD+R, all you can do is "Finalize"; With the DVD+RW, if I'm reading this correctly, NIETHER Finalization OR Preparation is required.
But with the DVD-RW, apparently ALL you can do is a "FULL" or "QUICK Preparation.
If you're only getting "Erase or "Finalize" WITH the DVD-RW, then it appears there may be a problem with the machine.
Or, if you're attempting the "FULL or QUICK" Preparation with any disc OTHER than the DVD-RW, all you should get is "erase" or Finalize", since the QUICK or FULL Preparation is not done with discs other than DVD-RWs.

Hope this helps. I'm certainly not an expert on these things....I'm a "Vinyl" type guy.

Presidian dvd recorder pdr 3222


Have had the same problem with my Presidian3222 for the last year, if I recorded something it would come back as invalid disc or blank disc or would not close disc out right, got so damn mad almost took a hammer to it last night, unplugged it like clicky said, did no good, thought cable co may have been sending single to screw up recording, but today took camcorder and tried to record something, same thing which seemed to let the cable co off the hook.
the following seemed to have fixed the problem, first open the player then unplug it, close the drawer 1/2 way, then I took compressed air and blew inside the player to clean the laser after that I have been able to record 3 movies and close the disc properly and finalize the disc properly, I even had 50 new disc made by sony that recorded kept saying were invalid, reads them fine now, I hope this helps everyone, because I was on the edge of putting this thing in the trash last night.
