Open Question

Disk loading fault

Hi,
My recorder refuses to read any disks, formatted or otherwise. Also pre recorder movies etc, Strange enough, when I put a cleaning disk in thinking it may need a clean it read the disk and played the audio instructions.
Please advise me as to what I may be doing wrong.
Thanks,

Ray Bannerman

SOURCE: disk error

Thanks, I can hear the disk spin. It also makes a knocking sound every 5 seconds while it tries to finalize until it errors and then stops. It's very quiet when just recording. I was thinking the spindle had worn down enough to cause the disk to not spin true anymore but I didn't think about the laser going bad. If it wasn't under warranty I would open it up and see for myself.

SOURCE: can not read disk

I just sent my BDP-S300 in with same problem...the tech told me he couldn't duplicate the problem and I think I know why...the fix is to UNPLUG the power cable and leave it unplugged for a minimum of 2-3 minutes...this process clears the internal memory; it seems that if you don't clear the memory, it won't read any disc because the unit thinks the same 'problem' disc is in the drive... (don't simply hold down the power button for 5 seconds - that will 'factory reset' the unit to default settings and you will have to reset your video / audio settings)...you have to physically unplug the unit from the power source...If I had waited a little longer before repowering the unit, I wouldn't have had to send the unit in (obviously the unit was without power during shipping and when it was powered up, internal memory was reset and thus did not indicate any problems). One more trick I learned is this - If a disc won't eject, turn the unit off, and instead of using the Power button to turn unit on, use the Open / Close button...the tech said the unit will then eject the disc before trying to read it...Hope this info helps!

SOURCE: Sony DVD RECORDER/PLAY WON'T PLAY

Dvd players are only made to last a couple of years(the laser goes bad).If you play scratched disc's it won't last that long.Hopefully you didn't pay alot for the player,and if you did then you can get the laser repaired but its expensive.I usually wait until the things go on sale and pick one up for 20 or 30 dollars.When the laser burns out after repeated use I just buy a new one because fixing them is more expensive and unless you want to continue having problems its easier to buy new.These guys that put alot of money in these units are just wasting their money.

My dual wont play cds or dvds


its simple to see where is problem.
1st read one more time formats of audio and video disks ,i mean codec what ur device officially read.(like wma,mp3,mp4,theora.. etc)
2nd then if device can not read disk for which ur sure that are recorded with supported codec or to say in supported format, then leans can be dirty or something is stucked inside,anyway lead u to open and clean laser reading lens inside,with any method.
3rd if disk are recorded in format and codec what that particular device can read,and read even just one disk, then lens are not point to look, then disks can be scrached,damaged or simply no more readable..what can be double checked on some other device.
4th if urs disks are for sure in non-supported format then easy and for free u can convert them in supported format(supported codec) on some computer with most of audio and video converter software,and then record them again,even some software can mannage to read and then record(burn) disks which are not readable any more to normal cd&dvd&bd players.
5th its good to know that is legal and good way to have backup copy of audio and video collection,if what is in use get damaged with tear and wear,or else..so favorite things can be burned or else reused again.

Disk Problem - may be wrong FAT version suggets using monitor ro reformat disk. prior screenc showed message regaridng error 6019 (that was before my bosses started fooling with the system)


sounds like hard drive fail. take the hard drive out and put on a PC as a slave setting. if the PC picks it up, if it does go to my computer and check hard drive for faults using windows tools the hard drive should be in FAT32. if it will not read in window or ask's to be formated. it has lost is FAT32 format. now it can be remormatted but you will need a FAT32 format softwear as windows dont use this now in there firm wear. down load the firm wear from dedicated micro web site. and put the 3 files on the hard drive boot folder zip file and another one cannot rember name not dv file think it say or the not pad just the 3 files. put hard drive back in as master again. and turn on it should restart. will take a bit longer as it will be opening the zip file and loading the softwear. when its done then you can sort out the setting in the menu etc for record etc.if hard drive has failed and no repairable format it 2 FAT32 and do as above with 3 files. should be fine then. allso in the site is a manual read this for the setting.... think 6019 is hard drive fault

Handycam DCR-DVD108 DVD Camcorder: if I get a request to format disc upon re-insertio...


Well this was mostly the main reason the pro film makes like myself decided never to go towards DVD (disk) movie cameras and always stay with tapes like the digital 8 sort.
With disk cameras you are never ever going to be sure you are catching anything, as the disk will spin happy in the camera, but as 1000's have already found your disk will be bland if you put the disk back in the camera next time.
Did you format your disk at start of first use? sore are pre-formated, lots are not and wont record unless they are.
Good luck my friend hope you get it sorted out ok?

Dmr-ES30V Dvd plays pre record movies fine but I


Try a different brand of blank dvd+r or -r. you will find that your dvd machine is fussy on what discs it plays. More exspensive dvd players are fussy with what dvd discs you put in, as cheaper dvd players would virtualy play most types of dvds.

DVD will not load/format new disk


I have got exactly the same problem. Thought I had found some discs that worked as the first one formatted, since then all have come up with that crappy error protection message. Samsung really should sort this out.

My dvd recorder keeps ruining blank dvd+r's.


I have suffered the same problems as you describe here. What I believe is this unit suffers from inadequate ventilation. After having this problem I examined the unit and noticed it was hot. What I've done is put 2 small flat blocks on each side of the unit, to basically suspend it so that it can get airflow under and over it, now staying much cooler. Nearly all problems now have gone away. Seldomly, I find it will still exibit the problems mentioned. Frankly the only solution I've found from there is to unplug it for a short while and, upon plugging it back in, and trying again it works flawlessly.
