My Philips DVD Recorder does not accept a DVD disc shows no disk. The DVD disc does not revolve. A CD disc revolves but shows junknown


Could be that you are using the wrong type of DVD ? There are two formats DVD+R, DVD+RW etc and DVD-R, DVD-RW etc. Some machines are capable of using either, others can use one of the two formats.
My other suggestion is that some machines are picky about which manufacturer's DVDs they will use.

I cannot open the DVD drawer on my Philips DVDR3480 DVD RECORDER – it just won’t open? The screen display just keeps saying ‘Error’. Any help is appreciated.


I have two of these dvd recorders and both have the exact same problem where the drive won't open. It opens fine when there is a disc in the tray. So I just unscrewed the cover, press the white part which would be over the center of the disc as it's trying to open, it should then open. Then just make sure there is always disc left in the tray.

Failure to record


I had the same problem on my Philips 3400. Changing media worked. Try RW media if R does not work.

Here is the link to the manual if you need it; http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/d/dvdr9... best i could come up with is: unplug machine, then plug it back in while holding down "open/close" and "stop" (Page 49) run through the diagnostics as explained on page 51. This link below gives you available drivers and updates, try updating/reinstalling the driver just in case it is a software issue; http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbin... If you still have no luck, please post again. Hope this helps :)
