Question about NAD C541 CD Player

Selective playing of DVD's on Sharp DVD Recorder

I have had my SHARP DV-RW250H VCR/DVD Recorder for about 15 months. It now refuses to play most (not all) DVD Video commercial discs [movies], whilst continuing to recognise and play my own burned discs. The Recorder is set Region 2 and all discs are Region 2. An error code shows 'Incorrect Disc C104. Of course the manual states this means the disc is incompatible. However as gives this message to the vast majority of discs it has played before, as well as newly bought, this clearly is nonsense. The discs play on other players and on my PC, so what has changed to make the Sharp machine to act in this way with original DVD discs?

    Thank you and will try the lens clean solution. One thing I should have made clear is that although, yes, it does read recorded discs it has made itself, it also reads discs burned on my PC. When an original (commercial)DVD is inserted, it shows 'reading', several whirrs, then nothing until a final Incorrect Disc C104. So any disc in my collection that has been burned, new or old, is likely to play. But bought DVD's -again new or old - do not.

Given that the machine will read disks it has written itself but not play regular discs, I suspect the lens assembly is slightly out of alignment and needs adjusting. This is not normally something you can do at home unless you have the correct test gear. It will need to go to a repair shop. One thing you can try before that is to clean the lens. Buy a quality (Scotch 3M, Philips ) cleaning disc and try it. Could be it's only a speck of dust on the lens.....

How do i select finalise on sharp dv-rw 250h remote control


If you are using the original remote or one which matches all of the functions, make sure that no DVD or VHS tape is being played and that the recorder is on. Make sure that there is sufficient space left on the disc. (The space needed depends on chapter/disc titles.) Then press Setup on the remote; it should be below the arrow keys but the position may vary. Use the Up/Down arrows to select System Setup and press Enter. Select Disc Setup and press Enter. Select Finalise and press Enter. Select Start with the Right/Left arrows and press Enter. Wait for the procedure to finish.

Note: only discs recorded on this particular device can be finalized on the DV-RW250H. On some other Sharp DVD recorders, the Disc Menu is accessed directly from the Setup menu.

I hope this helps.

I need a manual Sharp DVRW550U DVD Recorder / VCR Combo.. when i record into the dvd it say that i cannot recorde into this dvd i already try so many diferent one and it say the same thing.. when i think...


I have three possibilities for you. One obvious answer would be that you are trying to record onto either a CD-R rather than a DVD-R, but I'm assuming that's not your problem. The second would be that you are trying to record onto a dvd that your recorder doesn't support (i.e. DVD-RW and your recorder only supports DVD-R). The final possibility is that the disc is a "dud." I have had this problem before and just had to try another disc. Good luck and let me know how it turns out, will you? Der Strom

VCR DVD Recorder not dubbing


I called the manufacturer and realized I was using the wrong type of recordable DVD disc to dub to. Non copy protected VHS tapes dub just fine as long as I'm using the proper disc.

Hi, if you still have the problem of unable to copy from video to dvd,then just follow these instructions, on the Remote, (when you have both the video tape that you wish to copy in the machine and the blank disc also in the machine ) Press the DUBBING Button(This is 2 buttons along from the Record button),almost immediately a message will pop up asking if you wish to copy VCR to DVD.
Hopefully this is of help to you. Regards. Gary

Trouble recording to DVD - connections are not done right - Sharp DVD-RW340


I had to run from the RCA outs of my DVR into the inputs that are on the front right of the RW340...behind the little door.  Now I can easily record from live cable or from my Comcast DVR recorder.  Couldn't get it to work from the backside inputs.
Mine is just the DV RW340 (no U).  And yes, the manual is brutal.  We had to call tech support to find what disc will actually work in the darned thing.
Now my big problem is finding more 4x DV-R disks. Shoulda bought more when Comp USA was clearing them out a few years ago!

I have had great success with Dynex Model: DX-DVD-R25 discs.  And they play equally nicely on my Toshiba DVD player in the livingroom.   I have also given several away to people after I had transfered home videos to DVD and those people all had good results playing the discs that I made on my lowly Sharp Dv-RW340.

Standby


If both decks have a disc or tape in it , the unit shut down because of a power supply glitch or a mechanical trouble shut down the system control system. One way to possibly get them out is unplug unit for a few hours or overnight even better. Before you plug back in press the eject button and hold it in while you plug it in. Dont let go untill the tape comes out. Now if it comes out then unplug the unit anf replug back in and wait a few secs. to let it reset and do its thing. then see if it will turn on and try to eject the disc. if this dosent work then its a power supply problem and its going to need serviceing unless you know your way aroundservo controls and power supplys . Remeber always unplug these units as they do have voltages on the primary side of the transformer that can bite ya. Good Luck
