This happens sometime when the drop
down menu in the recording program is
not set correctly for the dvd recorder it
may be set for another recording device
or the dvd player. If this in not the case
try removelng the dvd recorder in device
manager and leting it reinstall

I've just spoken to a friend who also has one of these older Philips recorders & he has the same problem.
As per my previous post, he fixed his problem by locating old stocks of blanks. New audio discs seem to have been manufactured & optimised for fast writing speeds (up to 32x speed) & this is causing the problem (you can't write at x1 or x2 speed to these new speedy discs).
Trying a few different brands of discs to try out is a whole lot cheaper than a repair. I suggest when you find a brand that works, you stock up on these discs as it seems they will become ever rarer.

Will it read audio cd's? Sounds like you need a new laser unless you have access to a philips COMPair system to diagnose / realign it.

When setting the record timer make sure that PDC / VPS is switched OFF.
PDC - Programme Delivery Control / VPS - Video Programming System is designed to allow for late starting or running programmes. Not all channels support PDC/VPS, so the recorder may be waiting for a PDC/VPS signal which isn't there.

I may be a bit late but I just upgraded my firmware. I downloaded the zip file and burned it as per the instructions with Nero Burning Rom. This may help. Visit the Philips website and search for your Dvd recorder there.
