Re: Wharfdale DVDR24HD160F

Hi Barb22,

Sounds faulty to me, I'd take it back to the store and get a replacement. However, I guess you want that DVD out first? I'm not sure this will work because the units logic board is mostly likely faulty and will prevent the DVD transport from opening. Unplug the unit and press the eject button, keeping it pressed plug the unit back in. If the unit does not come on then press the power button too. If the unit starts to open release the button immediately. It's unlikely to eject, but you might get lucky.

Sorry I can't be of much further help.

Mine had E1000 on the display. Remove plug from mains and reconnected. Worked OK for few days, then would not power up. Eventually found problem on Power Supply Board. It was a Electrolytic Capacitor, value 2200uF 16v, at C112.
This worked OK for me.

I have a Panasonic HDD Recorder Model No. DMR-HW100 which recently has developed a problem. If you try to record more than one program it shows this message. "The timer recording list is full! Please

Hi Paul
I guess it will depend on where the timer recording list is kept. Memory or Hard Drive.
These machines often have an internal battery (or capacitor) to keep the date & time correct. Did the date or time need reentering when you turned it back on?
There may be a key sequence to reset this. See Manual.
Can the internal Hard Drive be formatted using the internal software. Basically like formatting a computer Hard Drive

Try to reset the player :You can also try a hard reset: Unplug unit from AC mains and remove all cables from unit. Wait about 30 minutes and replug to AC power and redo the cabling. Switch on the unit and see if it works..if this fails then you need Restart the recorder Press down power switch for more than 10 seconds until Sony DVD appears this will set to default factory setting in the player.....

You should be able to get into a list of timer recordings by this method:
1 Open “Initial Setup” menu
Press the SETUP button or the TIMER button while the DVD is in
Stop or Play mode.
2 Select “PROG”
Use the ??/?? buttons to highlight “PROG” then press the
ENTER button.
3 Select the recording to be deleted
Use the ?? and ??/?? buttons.
Press the ?? button to move to the next setting.

The squares are the arrow keys! You should be able to delete the settings using these keys or some other key.
Next time you set a timer recording make certain you don't set the weekly setting!

Quite simple, I have an LG video recorder, and a Wharfdale dvdr24hd160f, both in line to my TV. Is there any way I can record old family video tapes to DVD, without interfering with my current wiring...

Hi, You should be able to depending on how your DVD is connected up. If it is hooked up using a yellow, red, and white lead (RCA. Common lead with a pin in centre of plug) there it should be no problem. On your TV there should be a set of sockets of the same colour. These should say monitor out, our output. Basically this set of plugs will send the picture and sound of whatever you are watching on the TV. If you connect from your monitor output sockets on your TV, to the input on your DVD recorder (will likely say AV1, or input on your DVD recorder) then it should record your video. You just have to make sure that the picture on your TV is the video you are playing, and the channel that is set to record on your DVD recorder is AV1. (You may also have an input at the front of your DVD recorder that says AV2 or input 2.) As long as you set your DVD to record the input set of sockets you plugged your cable into it should work. This set up will not alter the operation of your DVD or TV.

How do i access the Hard Drive out of a Wharfedale DVDR24HD160F 160GB HDD DVD Recorder

hmm...similar problem here. i've taken the hdd out and plugged it in to the ide port inside my pc. The problem is it's the wrong file system. Your pc will not see it. It is however just a normal hdd so you can re-partition it and give it a new file systm ie ntfs but you lose all the data :(. that's as far as i've got, hope it helps someone.

Look at the door of your DVD shutter. There might be very small hole. This is an emergency Shutter open point. Make off your player, insert a long pin inside the hole, press it gently, you will notice that the shutter is openning, pull it out side, and take off your data DVD from the tray.

HDD locked?

Have you tried resetting the recorder to it's default settings either through the menu or by pressing and holding the power button while unplugging it. After unplugging leave it of for a few minutes and then turn it on again.

Hard drive shows full even after erasing 120 hours.

You should empty the recycled bin in the system and delete all temporary files on it.

Wharfdale DVDRHD400 dvd recorder with 80gb hard drive

Sounds like if you are getting the right Video and not audio then the audio are hooked in wrong. Unless you are on SAP (Second audio program) in this case take it off of Sap. If you are getting the sound that you are looking at once you change channels to view another program, then it should be easy. Just change audio jacks back to AV1, 2, 3 etc depending on which one you are using. Hope this helps!
