The h2o light on display had no colour then turned blue now gone red fridge only 7 months old but have lost manual

The filter/water system is designed to change colors after 6 calendar months, the system does not count the flow of water (unless you have the smart valve unit that measures water). Either way, you can either reset the filter by holding the filter button for 5-10 seconds or replace the filter and hold the filter button then.
Good luck

Not reading pre-recorded dvd's and ocassionally not re-wrtten dvds

Over recent months my recorder has stopped reading pre-recorded disc's and more requently re-writer disc's. I had thought that the region had some how been altered, but not too sure now. Is there a way of checking? Or is there a problem with the laser block. I have stripped the machine down and thoroughly cleaned (but no dust found) and no loose parts. I have reset to manufacture default but this hasn't helped.

OK 1 Other User Has The Same Problem Comment by Guest, posted on Dec 19, 2007 DVDR70-051 recorder functions generally becoming more and more erratic. DVD-RW discs I have recorded sometimes say 'disc error' sometimes 'no disc' sometimes start ok but cycles round and round for 5 - 10 mins before stopping, sometimes goes straight into play at last position, won't stop back in menu just goes straight to stndby. Factory reset dosn't help. Wont play pre-recorded discs without going into menu and messing around. It seems to damage or not record RW discs properly a lot of the time. Not even sure if it's resetting to factory settings properly.

Dr-4912 stops recording after 1min and locks

I was having this problem too.

After some tests I detect some kind of video images or programs cause the recorder "think" the content is protected and stop the recording in the middle of process.

So I bought a Macrovision remover (like GREX - and the problem was gone.

Throw the damn thing away. And don't even try looking on the internet for the solution. Every link will take you to a sales pitch. Very frustrating.
