Question about Philips DVDR3440H DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder
I'm having a problem recording from the HDD to a recordable dvd. Haven't had this problem before, has just appeared in the last few days. Following the steps correctly to record from HDD to blank dvd, but when I press the "HDD" button to commence recording, the small icon pops up in the bottom right hand corner of the screen to indicate how much of the program has been recorded onto the dvd. But, it just freezes at 0%, and nothing happens - the red light is on to indicate that recording is taking place, but nothing's happening. Plus, the machine itself freezes, and I have to unplug it to get it to restart.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Had the same problem on my 6month old 3440H, its the degradation of the cheap Asatech Chinese DVD drive that is the source of the problem. . My 3440H HDD to DVD transfer sequentially degraded, It stopped recording DVD+ and -R's then on RW's it sometimes performed and some not.I gave up using cheap DVD's then with higher quality disks it would frequently report task completed but then would not plaback or freeze in the way you describe. I bought the DVDR from the CO-OP Xmas 2006. Co-op no longer support electricals so when it went wrong Co-op gave me a service centre to take it to. Long story short Philips dont recognise the service centre and they declared my warrany void. Tried to re-engage with Philips but they basically were not interested in supporting their product..
Not an elegant fix but since Phillips were useless, I opened the box nothing ....to lose ..I now run it on a bare external Sony DVD drive using extended ribbon and power cables as its a bit tricky to find space in the box to mount the drive.
