Displaying Blocked even after taking out the DVD disk.
The problem happens on the DVDR3355 after an unsuccessful programmed recording. Noticing it was not recording I pressed the record button, then a "Blocked" message appears. I managed to take the blank DVD out using the plastic lever underneath. But... now when I switch on the DVDR the after the "Startup" message the "Blocked" displays again. I tried switching on and off but it did not work. The firmware was updated in January 2007 to version BT5_6, Drive 43.03.11.

Re: Displaying Blocked even after taking out the DVD...
First, make sure the DVD Recorder is completely disconnected from the main power supply.
it over and look at the base of the unit, (just underneath the front of
the Disc Insert/Eject Tray). There is a small slot (approx 25mm x 8mm)
in which you can see a small, white plastic lever, probably situated
near the right-hand side of the slot.
Moved this white lever gently to the left, and the tray should open by itself.
Remove the disc, and the recorder will no longer be blocked.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I am so pleased to hear that you have restored the DMR E55 and for taking the trouble to let me know. It's always satisfying to achieve something like that and I guess you'll get even more pleasure from using it now than you did before. They are good machines and well worth the effort to keep them going.
Hi, if the PC's are older than 3 years or the cdrom drives are near it's end of life, it will make problems to read some CDR's. If you recorded the CD's you are trying to read, try recording at less than 4X speed. Sometimes, even "original" or "silver" CD's will make problems because they are not recorded correctly at the factory. If the problem is with a CDRW drive, it applies the same theory, the recording laser is damaged or used up. It will not record a legible CD or DVD even if the software says that the record operation ended successfully.
you are having problem with your lens and the microchip.you will need to replace them soon. the malfunction is a warning that a repair will have to take place.the problem is intermittent at this time.soon you will have no function.good luck
Several things to check
1) Your time - set it manually and remove the automatic time set
2) Try manually recording even a few min of anything (just put on channel to record, press DVD button and DVD Record button) - does it give you an error message on that disk? If so it might be because you are using 16x and machine sometimes gets messed up and won't record on those speed disks - same with +R sometimes does this - try recording on 8x -R ones.
Hopefully this helps - if not try unplugging unit from wallsocket and leave off about 30min then try setting program again etc (plus current local time) and use a new disk and see if problem still occurs - sometimes just unplugging it "resets" everything and then starts working again.
