I think the stupid product manufactured by Funai has some fundamental material issues that with repeated uses either the laser lens get dirty or scratched. My guess is if it is dirty a lens cleaner would get rid of it but it is a scratch or physical damage it should be repaired. Any help from Funai? Forget it....they should have probably recalled the units once the issue is known but you know how Chinese/third world countries work..

I get sound from my dvd player when I hit dvd on the remote but I see the picture from the tv

you need to change the input on the tv to whatever input your dvd is plugged into. an alternative is to use your denen avr as your video changer as well. most surround sound recievers will have a vidoe input as well as a vidoe output. if you route your cable right when you switch between your dvd and tv signal on the Denon, you dont have to change inputs on the tv. hope that helps.

Audio error

Did you drag the video and audio files.

There is no reason to format a dvd-rw, if you want to use it again
just delete the files on the disk, if you format it, you could cause it to stop working or not accept files.

You format a hard drive to change format, or install a OS.

You don't use format on CD or DVD's just to erace them.

Nero also has an erase option.

Sometimes the screen goes black and will not work

the video/graphics you opened is too high where the video card of your unit cant handle it which turns into overdrive. upgrade your video card if necessary

Funai dvd rcorder will not record to dvd

Are you trying to record a VHS tape to DVD? This won't work if the VHS tape is a commercial (disney, dreamwords, etc) because of an analog copy protection scheme known as Macrovision.

If you are trying to record, say, a broadcast signal and it will record to VHS and HDD, but the DVD errors out, then either the DVD drive is bad, or you have the incorrect type of recordable DVD in the player...

Format a cd

First some explanations:

The Canon DC210 will only take 'minus' format DVDs (DVD-R, DVD-R DL and DVD-RW). Only the DVD-RW must be formatted (initialised) before use. During initialisation you'' be asked whether you want to initialise the disc in VIDO mode or in VR mode.

VIDEO mode: Once finalised discs recorded in VIDEO mode can be played back in most common DVD players, offering the best compatibility. However, recordings cannot be edited (deleted, rearranged etc) on the camcorder.

VR mode: You can easily edit the recordings on the camcorder. However, discs recorded in VR mode can only be played back with DVD players that are compatible with DVD-RW discs in VR mode.

My preference is Video mode - I can then play the disc on a DVD player and edit it on a PC.

Now, to initialise a DVD-RW

1. Press the 'FUNC.' key
2. Use the joystick to select 'MENU' - it's in the bottom left corner of the screen
3. Use the joystick to select 'DISC OPERATIONS'
4. Use the joystick to select 'DISC INITIALIZE'
5. Use the joystick to select either 'VIDEO' or 'VR' mode
6. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to confirm your choice
7. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to start initialising the disc

Close the menu only after the screen display returns to the 'DISC OPERATIONS' menu.

Don't forget to rate this solution once you've tried it !
