That problem is usually cause of faulty capacitors on the power supply board...
If the capacitors is faulty your TV turn on after a lot of attempt until the TV is totally turn on...
In that case you need to replace the bad capacitors on the power supply..
How can you find where is the faulty capacitors?
The bad capacitors is usually leak/bulged on top in that case you easily find it through visual check...
Although I am a member of this site I came across your post while searching Google for answers to the same issues as you are having.
From what you say and what I have tried I can only put fault with the DVD recorder itself and probably the LASER.
This thing just seems to hate reading recorded media of almost any format including those which it's stickered front panel boasts about. It also doesn't leave you with many other options as there is no USB port either.
I dont use the unit to record or the Freeview facility and never have as we have Sky+ and no TV ariel.
I bought it for the varied formats of video it says it can play but out of 6 different formats that I recorded onto DVD with my PC (and I am an advanced user and work in I.T) it only played back one and badly which was a mpeg-1.
I put the same 6 disks into my sons (apparantly DVD only) player bought from ASDA for £15 and it played 4 of them perfectly as good as the originals!
Logically this would suggest this model is a Lemon. I just hope your not a £130 light lemon as I am!
Normally warranty does not cover this kind of physical damage to your lcd screen. First check with your vendor to confirm. To replace the lcd panel is very expensive, may cost you as much as to buy a new one.
Check with the manufacturer, this sounds like a problem with decoding, or maybe the screen driver. as this is 10 months old it should still be within Manufacturer's warranty and they should sort it out for free :)
