Samsung DVD-VR320 DVD wont record and shows EC0509

The unit is two & a half years old and the DVD side has started playing up. Still with the same discs I have always used, it will start to record for a short while then stops recording with error code EC0509. Same for recording from the T.V. as for recording from Video Cassette to Disc. Can anyone out there interpret this error code and suggest whether it would be economic to fix, or better to consign to landfill?

    Many thanks for your suggestion, I'll give it a try and let you know.

    I have decided not to try to fix it so have listed it on eBay. Maybe it is natures way of telling me to upgrade to a Freeview Plus PVR, but thanks for your trouble anyway.

    I decided to open the machine and clean the lens with a cotton bud dampened with Mr Muscle window cleaner and it now works fine. Thanks for the advice, it worked a treat.

    My DVD-VR320 won't record.



    How do record a VHS to a DVD-R. Do I press the 'record' button or the

    'copy' button. I am using Samsung PLEOMAX DVD-R 8X disks. Are these the right disks to use? Please advise.

Try cleaning the lens. A commercial lens cleaner should do the job, but if not, contact me again, and I'll try to help you clean it manually

First clean the laser head with a Qtip and alcohol. It gotta be perfectly clean, so wipe with fresh brand name qtip and make sure there is not a single dust particle on it. You gotta remove the cabinet with star screwdriver. Your beam might be tired. First try with the clean up! Unplugg before opening!

Dvds recorded on video to dvd recorder wont play elsewhere


Mosr DVD recorders have a "compatible" setting or require you to "finalise" the disc. Check that is being done.

It's also worth checking that the laptop will play other DVDs sometimes you need a codec.

Dvd vr320 play some dvd but not all, all the same region dvd


I think that the laser might be mis-aligned or the laser unit itself is faulty. I f you are able to check this yourself if not find a competant technician. Hope this helps.

See if a shop will clean the optical assembly for you at a reasonable cost. Also, if you have the "finalization" feature turned off, this will cause a disc to show that message...accordianman

What sort of "recognization" is your TV showing? Do you get a blue screen but no AV?...accordianman
