Philips DVD recorders are high quality, and likewise only like high quality blank media.
This is a common issue when you use "low" quality media.
Try using these brand of discs....
1. TDK, Sony and Verbatim brand DVD+R Discs 2. Imation, Verbatim or Maxell brand DVD+RW Discs
Honestly said, as the Philips machines were set up for the DVD+ (PLUS) format (hence the +RW logo on the remote), it's best to stick to the +R and +RW DVDs.
Buy your media from places like PC World, Argos, Morissons and online at svp.co.uk, ebuyer.co.uk etc, NOT eBay where fakes are!!!
Hope it helps!

I had the same problem on my Philips 3400. Changing media worked. Try RW media if R does not work.

How do i find out what the frigidaire gallery series dryer error messages are


Hello Friend, this is Z. I appreciate your post!

To get the error code your dryer may be experiencing, attempt the following:

Wake your dryer by pressing any button except for CANCEL.

Press and hold the "CANCEL" and "START PAUSE" buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds to show the error recorder code your dryer may have. The error code normally appears in the display as an E followed by two numbers.

If your dryer shoes, E00 it indicates no failure code was detected.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if you receive an error and if further troubleshooting is needed.

Thank you!

ION LP2CD LP vinyl record records to Internal Fla...


Same just happened to me. I was using SONY CD-R audio 80 min recordable CDs. One burned 3 songs, the other 4 songs before giving me the "CD write failure" message. I tried another brand of CD-R, TDK CD-R, certified plus, and it worked first time. It played on my CD player, on the Ion, etc - works. Maybe the CD burner in the device is very picky as to the brand or quality of the CD-R media? Try a TDK or other to see if that will do it.
-Good luck! Bill

Losing Audio Halfway Through Recording


The audio failure sounds more like a VHS player failure than a DVD software/recorder failure. Both audio and video are transferred at the same time to the DVD, and as long as the DVD recorder is working, that's really all there is. I would check the VHS player and confirm that the sound actually works all the way through.

Sony dvd recorder rdr gx7 sending disc error message


The laser readerwriter is most likely burned out, it is the most common failure. The option of repair is not really feasible as the cost of new is really low.

Broken video management file/ recording failure


Although the instructions don’t make it clear, it seems to be important that the camera is turned off before you connect or disconnect the USB cable. The instructions do mention that you should not delete or rename files on the camera except in the EXT_MOV folder. The camera’s firmware is apparently quite fragile about file names and the presence of the extra hidden folders that both the Windows and Macintosh operating systems create when you delete something.

The manual says to press the display button (just below the eject button) on the remote. This worked for me.
