Question about Daewoo DVG-8500N DVD Player

1 Answer

DVD/HDD machine freezes and needs to be reset each time it's used

Good day,
I have a Daewoo HDD/DVD Recorder DH-6111D and have been using it for almost 1 1/2 years. It sometimes used to freeze up - even blocking any tv signal - once swithed on and the only way to get any response is to either unplug / reset the machine by holding in the dvd/hdd button for more than 5secs. Just to clarify: the lights go on, the fan turns but the machine does not respond to any input from the remote or by pressing any buttons on the machine. Recently it has been freezing up every time we use the machine, sometimes requiring up to 3 resets. It also does that when we set the timer for recording resulting in a loss of a planned recording. Is there any way to almost 'format the hard disk' completely to factory default?

Thank you.

I am trying to repair a Daewoo DVD Recorder DH-6111P and have need of a replacement hard disk drive 80Gb PATA. I have Seagate drives in stock. How do I prepare one for use in the machine?


hi, in this page show how backup software and very useful for drive replace
http://vladikuz72.narod.ru/DAEWOO_DHR/firmware_backup/how_to_backup.htm6
The major problems are often drive support and getting the drives formatted for use. It typically can't be done using a Windows PC. Some units will auto format the HDD once it is installed (assuming a recognized and supported HDD is used) and others have data stored on the drive which must be moved to the new drive before it can be used. I've never worked with any Daewoo models and aside from Tivo units try to avoid it as it isn't typically worth the headaches.

  1. Plug the HDD from the Daewoo in your PC.
  2. Download this program: https://rapidshare.com/files/2092882716/DMDE.7z2
  3. Open the program and select the appropriate physical drive from Daewoo (Disk Management)
  4. Click: Mode> Hexadecimal. Then click Tools> Copy Sectors
    Start sector: 0
    End sector: 19999
    Destination: Click "File"
    And save where you can find it! It's probably 10MB.
  5. Click OK and after done, unplug the HDD
  6. Plugin you're new HDD and in the program click: Drive> Select Drive (you're new HDD)
  7. Again Hexadecimal mode! Look all the way down of the list. Find the number of the last block!
  8. Tools> Fill Sectors:
    Start sector: 0
    End sector: That you've searched for
    Hex: 00
    Click OK
    THIS MUST BE DONE, OTHERWISE IT WON'T WORK!!!!
  9. Now again Tools> Copy Sectors
    By source, select file and open the file you've saved in the beginning.
    Destination: Start sector: 0
    Click OK
  10. You're done!!
    Plug the new HDD in you're Daewoo product and if followed the steps.
    It will give you the Daewoo boot up logo and immediately it will pop-up say: "Formatting Hard Disk"
I have now a 750GB HDD in my Daewoo!!! :D:D
You have now the OS System (.BIN file) of Daewoo on your computer for future reasons.

Magnavox MDR537H/F7 no power


Some surge protectors cut off all power, when they reach the surge protection limit in joules. Power strips have reset buttons to restore power. Try plugging it directly into the electrical wall socket. If it works, then purchase a new surge protector. The DVD recorder may have a internal fuse that has burned open.

Magnavox MDR537H/F7 -- DEAD no power


There is usually an internal fuse in all audio/video equipment and it will normally be a 20mm glass one positioned near the power supply or somewher close on the circuit board. There may be more than one so have a good check around. Be sure to replace with the same type and rating, no sticking kitchen foil across it to short it out, this illegal and DANGEROUS.

I have a Daewoo DH 6111D HDD/DVD Recorder. I have recordered a program on HQ on the Hard Drive for 2.5 Hrs. The problem I have is that I cannot Dub this to a DVD disc because there is not enough space...


If you try to burn this on a single layer DVD disk then you will get this error message unless your DVD burn program can compress the video so it can fit on a single layer DVD disc.
OTHERWISE
You need to upgrade your burner to a dual layer burner and burn your video onto a dual layer DVD disc.

I have the same problem. Telephoned Daewoo and they said that there was a download available that will fix it. Unfortunately, the contol keeps freezing so I can't do this. Therefore, I have contacted the retail supplier and they are sending a replacement and also letting me have relevant info to send the defect one back. Hope this helps.

Daewoo dh-6111d DVD/HDD player/recorder. regional codes unlock


Report your Video shop to RiSA. They should legally only carry zone 2 DVD's as a rental copy and a sale copy has two different licenses of use. If they have zone 1 DVD's it means they are bypassing the local supply chain (ie getting it outside South Africa) and damaging the industry as a whole.
