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?

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
