Multiple problems with the DVD recorder one of them could be the lasers not reading correctly its software is messed up or there something wrong with this but to me it sounds more like the DVD recorder has a problem I've experienced this problem before not with this particular type of DVD recorder I fix the problem by unplugging the DVD player for about 20 seconds to a minute to give it a good reset.
Quick tip: most high Tech Device problems or unknown errors can be fixed by simple restart or reset hope this helps

I need a users manuel for a toshiba dr420 dvd recorder


Toshiba has the manual for the DR420 on their support site: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=2805096&rpn=undefined&modelFilter=D-R420KU&selCategory=2797338&selFamily=2797342 . (If you need to, click on the User's Guide tab.)

If this doesn't work, start at http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp . Click on Product Support and then DVD & Blu-ray and then DVD Recorders and then the model number in the various drop down menus.

Note this manual is the one for the DR420KU which is the USA version. If you are in another country, try that region's version of the Toshiba support site.

I hope this helps.

How do you connect dvd dr420 to dish hd reciver with dvr to give me the capabilityto record from my dvr to my dvd dr420? do you have a phone number? how much does it cost to join fixya?


Connect to the component outputs on the back of the dish receiver. This is the output for TV1. Then conncect the ouput of the dvd dr420 to your TV. I am using the HDMI output on the dr420 to connect to an HDMI port on my tv. This results in a 1080p picture on the TV which is sharper than the 1080i from the dish receiver's HDMI cable. My Sony TV has multipe HDMI ports so I can choose betweeen these 2 inputs and can see the differance since Dish only sends 1080p on it's pay for view channels.
