Just Buy A New One Because You Cant Resolve This Problem Because The Central Processor Is Malfunctioning And If You Try To Get It Fixed It Will Never Work Because It Has A Non- After market System Which Mean You Cant Change It So Your Better Off Buying A New One.

DVDR3380/05 DVD Recorder: after i recorder a tv or movie on a dvd it will no...


If you are using a DVD-/+R then you will need to finalize it on the DVD menu before you can play it in another make of DVD player.

If you are using a DVD+/-RW then you can scan in the DVD-Video data into your PC check out my DVD tip HERE on how best to achieve this. Or if you want to lock it so that you can't accidentally record over it.

Unknown disc error and whirring sound!


Do you leave the unit on all day and night on standby?

If this unit gets to hot you can experience this problem I suggest that you turn the power OFF totally until the unit cools down and try again. Normally 15 mins is enough.

Unknown disk type


Press 'Disc Menu' and wait for 'no disc' to appear on the screen. Eject the tray by pressing the 'open / close' button on front of the recorder. Enter the following numbers very slowly on the remote control ' 0086000 ' Press ' OK ' button on your remote control. Close the tray by pressing ' open / close ' button on the front of the recorder. You can check this has worked by pressing ' 0009 OK ' on your remote after the tray has closed. A display will pop up on screen showing the Region as 0. This means you should be able to play discs from all Regions. If this doesn't work the first time! try again! Hope this helps!!

DVD recording.


Sounds like the DVDR is recording from the digi-box through the TV, so when the TV is switched of or into standby the signal is lost, causing the recorder to pause.

Assuming the digi-box has two scart sockets, connect as follows:

  • Scart 1 or TV scart of the digi-box to the TV.
  • Scart 2 or VCR/DVD scart of the digi-box to scart 1 of the DVDR3380.
The TV aerial should already be connected through the digi-box and DVDR3380 to the TV

To record from the digi-box, select AV1 / E1 / EXT1 on the DVDR3380

Can't tune stations from freeview box to DVDR3380/5


You can only record freeview channels through your box.


Assuming the digi-box has two scart sockets, connect as follows:

  • Scart 1 or TV scart of the digi-box to the TV.
  • Scart 2 or VCR/DVD scart of the digi-box to scart 1 of the DVDR3380.
The TV aerial should already be connected through the digi-box and DVDR3380 to the TV

To record from the digi-box, select AV1 / E1 / EXT1 on the DVDR3380
If you are doing timer recordings, you will also need to leave the freeview box on the channel you wish to record, or set the freeview box timer.

Not playing back on another machine


First of all, make sure you finalize the disc before playing on another machine.

If this is not the cause then the following should help:

There was a compatibility issue with this model. Philips released a software update for this model.

Follow this link:

Read and follow the instructions CAREFULLY.
