Alba DVD recorder won't recognise any discs

My Alba DVD recorder (only 2 years old) is not recognising any discs. Whatever disc I put in, including brand new pre-recorded discs I had for Xmas, I get the same message 'NO DISC'.

Alba tech support is virtually non-existant.
Anyone got any ideas?

The Alba DVD recorder may not recognise any disc due to one or two of the following reason.
1, the optical pick up (lence) may be dirty or may have gone bad.
2, the cable which connects the optical pick up to the circult panel board may have go borken.

DVD-RW discs are ideal for temporary video recording and data backup, but they are not recommended for successful finalising, as there is no guarantee that the disc will work in another device.

Have you tried using DVD-R discs? these CAN be recorded in video mode AND finalised for compatible playback in other players. I assume the DMR-ES30V is a DVD/VCR combo unit - if so, the DVD recorder will not recognise RW discs; only DVD-RAM and DVD-R.

DVD-R discs are recommended for video recording and finalising in this model. (later model Panasonic DVD recorders allow RW disc recording).

DVD will not recognise discs


I think that moisture has formed on the boards.

The best thing to do is to take the recorder
and put in a warm room,connect it and leave for 2-3 hours.
Then try with a disc again.

I hope i`ve helped!

if it does not give a disc type to use you might need to try a dvd or CD + r. the only difference in a CD and a dvd is the space on it if the file your putting on the CD / dvd is under 700 mb it will fit on a CD so not need to wast a dvd . DVDs hold up to 4gb of data CD only go up to 720 mb. All so some player are picky of the brand of disc you use idk why other that the quality . I have had the same problem and this is how i solved it

DVD disc tray keeps popping out


I had mine for 2 years and within the first 12 months the tray would not always pop out when I wanted it to. Then finally the machine would not recognise the disc type. Its in getting fixed but although the dvd drive and associated pcb have been replaced the guy says it still can't recognise the dvd disc type. Still trying to work it out.

DVD Burning doesn't work..no Disc in Setup..


Been checking out my m/c and found that there are many -r & -rw discs the m/c does not recognise which gives rise to this problem. However the m/c does recognise VERBATIM discs and I have been able to record and dub to them with no problems.
