Toshiba DVR620KU does not play tapes

I just received a DVR602KU and connected it to my TV using the component connections. I can now play DVDs with no problem. When I try to play a Video tape (VHS), here's what I do and what happens: 1) Turn on the TV and select component in. 2) On the DVR remote, select VCR (now the VCR light is on) and the display on the DVR shows "L1". 3) Insert the video tape The DVR then turns itself off and I get a no signal message on my TV. When I turn the DVR on again, the video tape ejects. What do I have to do to fix this? BTW, If I switch to DVD mode and insert a DVD, it plays just fine.

SOURCE: Toshiba DVR recorder incorrect disk message

You could try the factory initializing process I found on another webesite (AVS Forums): "Had this message pop up a few weeks ago. Tried the solutions in the manual, no go. Tried unplugging it for 7 days, no go. Called Toshiba customer service @1-800-631-3811, the tech told me: 1) turn on TV and set to receive your DVD signal 2) Turn on DVD player and remove any discs 3) put Dvd / VCR selector on DVD 4) at the same time, push channel selector button UP (^) along with the PLAY button 5) hold the buttons down until TV screen shows "Initializing" message, release buttons, let DVD player go thru it's reset cycle and shut down 6) turn DVD player on and watch your DVD movies now Works like a charm. Put this in your manual for the next time." My unit has not worked since December of last year, I only had it for one year and it conveniently stopped working right after the one year warranty. My unit was not functioning whatsoever past turning it on, but when I did the factory initialization I was able to operate my unit again....UNFORTUNATELY, it still does not read disks, I still get the "Incorrect Disk" message. I guess I could consider it progress. But still try it, it may work for you. My unit just seems to be fried beyond repair. If anyone has any suggestions on how to correct the incorrect disk problem, I would be greatly appreciative. I'm not ready to throw mine away yet!

Probably copy protection.

You can remove it with a Grex or similar

There is a small idler arm which senses the tension of a tape as it is played or rewound. It should stop the tape before it breaks but it sounds like you need a repair.

DVR620KU From the HDMI connector, how to get non-pinched vertical HDMI images on the TV monitor and on the DVD. Recorded DVD's have been Finalized


Using a DVD-RW disk, try ALL different recording settings even if they don't seem probable and record a sample. If output is correct with all BUT the HDMI-cable, go through ALL picture format settings on the TV when a HDMI-cable is used. Different discs and HDMI cables don't have anything to do with this. I'm still chewing on this...

If the entire VHS is full then you can easily transfer the VHS contents to the DVD. The video will play while it is recording onto the DVD, but you don't have to have it hooked up to any TV for it to record. Now if you don't know how long the VHS content is that you want to record to DVD, then you will have to hook up the player to a TV so that you can press stop when you reach the end of the content you want recorded. At least this is true in the way that I use to transfer VHS to DVD:

1) Turn on the unit
2) Insert VHS tape
3) Insert DVD-+R or DVD-+ RW
4) Using remote, press VCR
5)Using remote, press play then pause the tape where you want to start recording.
6)Using remote, press DVD
7) Using the remote, press DUBBING. The VHS should start to play and the DVD should start recording

When using this method, don't hit the RECORD button!

I hope this helps!

Our new Toshiba SDV398KC2 will not play a DVD. It is like it is on the wrong channel. It shows the DVD playing with the counter but does not show it on the TV. Can you help?


I've seen this behavior before.

For this model, I *think* that you need to use the component connections/input in order to view the DVDs. If VCR shows ok when using the cable, but not the DVD (and it seems to work since it goes up as if playing), try to connect the component (blue/green/red connectors) and it should work.

Don't forget to switch input on your TV to component.

P.S. If you have HDMI on both this dvd/vcr & your TV, it should work with that too.

DVDs are playing with green tinge


Greetings and Salutations,

If your using the component outputs from your DVD player I would first check to make sure that the cables for the Red and Blue channels are connected properly. If the cable is connected correctly then try replacing both the Red and Blue channel cable. If this fails to fix the problem try connecting to another component input on your TV if you have one available. 

You might also want to check to see if you switched on the progressive scan switch on the back of the VCR/DVD unit. If you know someone with another DVD player have them bring it over and see if the problem is still exists. 

If the green picture is still present then the problem is and internal problem with the TV and you will need to find a repair center for it. If the problem goes away then the problem is with the VCR/DVD combo unit. You can at this point also try using just the Video Out from the DVD player.

Hope these suggestions will help you with your problem.
