Question about Philips Magnavox MWR20V6 DVD Recorder/VCR
I'm using a Magnavox MWR20v6 dvd recorder combo unit with vcr. I've had it for a year and have never had a problem. All of a sudden, it records but when I go to finalize anything, it says cannot record on this disk E22. I've always used these discs and never had a problem. Any suggestions?
The manual isn't too helpful either - "Recording error other than below," it says. There are a couple of possibilities. The Philips/Magnavox/Funai recorders automatically record in VR mode when you use +R discs (there are two possible recording modes - V Mode and VR Mode). Is it possible that you have switched disc types lately? If you are currently using -R discs, switch to +R and vice versa. The manual states that +/-RW discs take a while to initialize.
I couldn't find a full factory reset on that one, so you may have to unplug the unit for about 20 minutes to restore all the defaults.
Another possibility: Finalization requires some extra space on the disc. If you accidentally pressed the button that changes the recording format between SP, EP, LP, etc., you may not be able to fit the same amount of video on the disc that you were able to fit before. You can change the format by pressing the Disc Mode button on the remote - LP Mode will fit 3 hours worth of recordings onto a 2-hr disc and is considered a "medium quality" recording. Try changing the Disc Mode to LP and see if it will finalize the next disc that you record. The downside of this possibility is that the discs that you have already made that are giving you errors are not "fixable" - you will will have to re-record the shows to a new disc in LP mode.
