Hi,


As per Tosiba, E 25 is a Media Compatibility issue.

You need to unplug the Player for Few Minutes, keeping all the Input / Output Devices unplugged as well. Turn it Back ON. If that works, perfect. Unless, Try to use a Different Brand of CD.

Earlier, there were some issues with Direct TV. They were Updating their Software. So, i am not sure whether you are using Direct TV or not. If yes, might be as of now, you would get that Message.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Put tape in. Make sure the plastic tap isn't broke on front of vhs tape, if so, put tape over it.
Put tape and vhs in player, turn vcr channel to 04 I believe. Then hit the copy button. Otherwise put on dvd/ hit copy button

    Make sure the tape is tight when covered completely over the square where the tab was. It cannot be loose. It must be scotch tape as well.

    If the tape is commercial, there is a safety feature built into the tape itself that will not allow recording. You will have to use a seperate vcr to hook up to the recorder to do this.

    If this is going to work, then using another vcr will do the trick. Some tapes and dvd's have to protection system, others don't

Trying to dub from dvr to vhs vcr


Is L2 for composite video (yellow) or S-Video? Try watching a video on L2 with the composite video plugged into the back of your TV, if it works, then do the same with the DVR, if that works, then run the DVR composite video into a receiver, then the L2 from the VCR to the video out on your receiver. It's possible that the VCR won't record anything that isn't an applified signal. That's what the receiver does.

DVR TRV-27 is showing error C:32:11


The problem is a rubber tape tension roller. Simply eject the tape, look inside where the tape goes. You will see a black rubber cylinder that may have a white plastic tube protruding. If you have long tweezer or a hemostat remove the plastic tube which hold the rubber tensioner in place, then remove the rubber tension cylinder. Clean the shaft of the black rubber tensioner with alcohol on a q-tip. Replace rubber tension cylinder and plastic tube.

Also, the tapes can cause the problem. This process is possible by one person, but you may need another person or have three hands. The C:31:23 is tape tension error. The tape has become stuck. Simply eject the tape. Holding the tape upside down, pull back on the tape cover release slide on the left side of the tape, now take the hemostat and push the tape release tab, located opposite of the tape cover, push this tab down and back toward the back edge of the tape. Now while holding both those release levers, take a pencil and wind the tape past the bad spot or until the tape winds freely.
I did both of these and was able to use the camera again and view all my tapes!
Good luck and QUIT SPANKING YOUR CAMERAS!!!!

When recording from vhs tape, and the signal is poor at times, the machine automaticaly stops recording temporarily and resumes when the signal is more stable. how can this feature be disabled?


If you are recording VHS tapes that contain macrovision, and most commercial tapes do, you can't record them with this DVR because it is compliant with the law that says you can't do it. So don't try. Download nearly every movie/tv show from the internet instead.

If you are recording from VHS tapes that you have created yourself from TV sources, or from camera, you must stabilize the picture. There are several devices like that. Do a google search on "vhs stabilizer".

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...

Coax out from box into cable in on VCR. Coax out from VCR to Cable in on TV. Set TV and VCR to ch 3. Put in blank tape. Start show on DVR and hit record on VCR. Hope that works for you.
