Question about Wharfedale DVD-M3 DVD Player

1 Answer

Wharfedale DVDRHD400 My Wharfedale DVDRHD400 has developed two faults. Firstly, the audio when set to SCART actually comes from the last analogue (terrestrial) channel selected. Secondly, the clock has started to run slow even when set to automatic via BBC1.

Phillips DVD recorder connection issue?

SCART is designed to carry analogue standard definition content. So if the input signal is high def. it will distort.

I have an Alba 32880hdf freeview tv. I cannot record freeview programmes to my panasonic NV-FJ 780 vcr which has 2 scart sockets. I have no problem recording the teresteral channels. Can you help pls

Hi Victor,

You can't record the Freeview channels from the TV. It doesn't work that way. The reason you can still record terrestrial channels is because the VCR is still connected to your roof aerial with a co-axial cable and the VCR has its own built-in analogue tuner for recording terrestrial TV programmes.

To record the digital Freeview channels, you will either need to connect a separate Freeview set-top box to the VCR, or buy a VCR which has a built-in digital (DVB-T) tuner.

The VCR does not record programmes from the TV. It needs to be connected directly to the signal source, i.e. your aerial.

If you need any further assistance, please let me know.

Find channels

You say you`ve plugged the outside aerial lead directly into the DVD recorder aerial input socket, you connected an aerial link lead from the aerial output socket on the DVD recorder and you`ve got a Scart lead from the TV output socket on the rear of the DVD recorder into the AV1 socket on the TV. I`m saying all this because in the past, I`ve had customers say this to me only to find when I call round that they`ve plugged the aerial into phono sockets instead of the earial input socket. The aerial lead will fit physically but not electrically. Have you got a good picture on your TV with the DVD recorder switched to standby?? If yes, Does it play a DVD perfectly through the TV?? If yes, then everything is connected up correctly, When you press the virgin menu button to your DVD, it should show setup/install?? When you do get to the free-view or channel setup/install menu, and you tell it to search for new channels, does it scan?? Does a bar or do the numbers rise and the % number rise as it finds new channels?? If they do and everything is connected and working as I described earlier but still no channels are found, Try unplugging from the mains and reboot your DVD recorder, then repeat the whole menu install procedure sequence again. Other than that, there`s nothing else you can do, Basically, you`ve got a faulty machine where it requires an engineers eye I`m afraid. Ian

Progresive scan problem and didn't get picture in tv

Our problem was that we could not get picture on the tv screen but it got sound.We tried to solve it using different techniques like the setup,video source,function keys pressed on remote control by trial(only assumed) and error as we could not see the screen and I used scart with every conection but three point pin was free so I put only one pin in video out put and at that moment I could see the picture on tv.

DVDRHD400. No volume on the TV channels. Will play sound on DVDs but no volume on anything recorded from telly. I have adjusted volume, on tv, cable, dvd but no luck. HELP me too please !!!!!

hello ,i fixed this problem on a dvdrhd400 i picked up off ebay with same fault. played dvds perfect but no audio coming in from freeview or scart (this is not a firmware update problem). the problem seems to be the capcitors on the tuner board (long retangle board at back which scart connects to) theres a 100uf 10v-16v capcitor (sorry cant remember if voltage was 10v or 16v as i fixed this a month ago and system as been working perfect and dont want to take it all apart again) its in the middle of the board off to one side with afew other 1uf caps around it. replaced it with a 100uf 25v cap (higher voltage is fine as long as same value) Capcitance meter was reading cap as bad. bingo worked perfect ever since.

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!

Audio from an external input only shows as mono on the TV information display.

If you are only getting sound through one speaker of the TV, check the scart connections are all in fully, and straight.

If you are getting sound through both speakers, then the sound is stereo. Stereo only shows when there is a NICAM stereo sound source, which is only through analogue terrestrial TV.

This tv has inbuilt freeview, how do i use a dvd recorder to record off it?

The Wharfdale Machine that has Freeview has an F on the end ie vdrhd400f. It may be yours is an analogue version. Always possible that you can use the TV as an output via a scart to record what you are watchin

Wharfedale DVDRHD400 Set up Issue

Hi I had the same problem. The answer is to use a scart lead on the freeview box and connect it to the input/output scart on the DVD. Then connect a scart lead from the TV out on the DVD to the TV. You then press Video source on the DVD remote until 'scart' is displayed to pick the freeview channels. Hope that helps
