Question about Pioneer DVR-530H-S DVD Player/HDD Recorder

6 Answers

Error Message "This signals TV system is different from the recorders setting" I get this message when trying to play from my digital camera, irrespective if I use analogue or digital inputs (S video or DV cables). It will record sound only. I have had this problem before, intermittantly, but it is now permanent. I have not changed any settings. When first plugging in cable, the picture flashes on my TV before the message appears. The picture looks fine. Any help would be much appreciated Thanks David

    I have used this camera and DVD recorder together for quite some time. Generally it will play and record from camera without a problem. I am not aware of any changes to either's setup which would impact.

  • david2301 Jan 27, 2009

    Digital camera is Panasonic NV DA1

  • david2301 Jan 27, 2009

    I use a HD Plasma TV. If the TV is the source of the problem, does that mean I can play and record on my DVR if the TV is switched off and therefore not able to interfere?
    Thanks


  • david2301 Jan 27, 2009

    I have plugged my camera directly in to TV using S Cable and it plays fine. When I use S video cable through DVR, it will not play.

  • david2301 Jan 27, 2009

    Why wouldn't the analogue signal outputs from the camera work if the TV is set to analogue (They don't work)

  • david2301 Jan 28, 2009

    Which of the TV's many settings could be set to analogue? Why does the TV play direct from the camera if the TV setting is the problem
    Thanks


  • david2301 Jan 28, 2009

    I have no problems playing the camera direct through the TV, but it will not play through the Pioneer DVR. What particular setting in the DVR is likely to be incorrect, given above error message.
    Thanks

  • david2301 Jan 28, 2009

    Tried every other channel on the DVR, even though I know the correct one is called "DV"

  • david2301 Jan 28, 2009

    Not a channel problem

  • david2301 Jan 29, 2009

    Found it. The DVR setting needed to show NTsomething on PAL. When I changed to that it worked. Thanks to all for your help. I have no idea how the setting got changed.
    Thanks again
    David

    Thanks to all

You need to access both TV display menu, and DVD setting menu and set both tv and DVD to same resolution (eg. 780 dp).

If DVD does not have resolution settings, then set TV only to a lower resolution settings.

    try hooking it up via rca jacks, or s-video, or hdmi. If none of these settings work for you and you have tried adjusting input settings on your system, then you inputs are fried out.

You've got your video recorder video settings set to a resolution that the DVD player or TV can not interpret.

Posted on Jan 27, 2009

  • Mark Egan Jan 28, 2009

    Do you have your owners manual? There are a number of settings between the TV DVR, and your camera that are too numerous to detail here.

    The best start is to make sure you know where all settings are to be set to.

    Then step through upgrading the settings to improve the way the system works.

    Sadly, this is not all a plug and play system. You going to have to put some effort into understanding the way the various components talk to each other.

  • Mark Egan Jan 28, 2009

    Please clarify if the message is coming from the DVR, or is coming from the TV, and what brand/model the TV is. Also confirm the exact message given.

    The owner manual for the DVR does not indicate an error message that is anywhere near the wording that you have given.

The video recorder learns a viewer's preferred programs and automatically record programs it expects a viewer to like.
A viewer also has the option to skip portions of a broadcast, such as for example commercials, You just need to change the setting in the setting menu.

My FujiFilm FinePix F47 fd has an error message that keeps saying 'Read Error' Help Please!!!


Hi,

The Read Error message displayed on the Camera when accessing the images which was not recorded correctly. This may also happen when the Memory Stick is corrupted to record or read the files. Please check if the message is displaying when accessing all the images. If it happens with all the images, then it may be an issue with the Camera or the Memory Stick.
To check if the issue is with the Memory Stick, try using a different Memory Stick and check if the message displays.This may also happen when an attempt was made to play back the image or the movie that was not recorded on this camera.
Try to wipe the contact area on the Memory Card with a soft, dry cloth. It may be necessary to format the Memory Card (Format option is available in the Setup 2 Menu of the Camera). If the message still appears, service may be required.

Thanks for using FixYa.

MY SONY CYBER SHOR DSC-W270. IT SHOWS SYSTEM ERROR WHEN TURNED ON.


Hi,

The System Error message displays when the files on the recording media have been copied or deleted repeatedly on a computer. Backup the files on your computer, then format the recording media in the camera to resolve this issue.
Formatting the Memory will erase all the data stored in the Memory Stick.
If the error message displays after formatting the Memory Stick, then try using a different Memory Stick media. Once the Memory Stick is inserted, perform manual power reset of the Camera.
To reset the Camera, turn off the Camera and remove the battery pack.
Then, allow the Camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
Later, re-insert the Battery pack in the Camera to resolve the issue.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Error message; has something to do with insertion of tape. Looks like triangle over straight line. beeps and blinks, will not play. Working when loaned to a "friend", returned in this condition...


Will it record on a new tape? Will it play a different tape? Have had a similar problem with a different camera. Think it had to do with the record mode / play back. A bit like standard play and long play - are there setting like that you could change?

There is a switch on the VCR that says "tape/other". Change the switch from "other" to "tape" and you should no longer receive this message.
