While playing back some of my recorded programs, the picture and sound sometimes break up and parts and sound of a previously recorded program appear for a few seconds. This has happened on more than one disk (dvd-rams). Could the cause be incomplete erase of the previous program?

open the recorder, 4 screws at each corner, wipe the playing head and the voice reccognition head, to the right of the playing head head with a baby wipe, you will be amiazed what **** comes off it. DON'T scrub it just wipe lightly, spin the playing head so it's clean. If you have a lint free cloth ( a glasses cleaning cloth you get in the case is brilliant) Try the tape (before you put it in make sure everything is DRY!) and your problem should be solved. It worked for me! and that came from a TV engineer
Did the return yesterday. They plugged it in and did a playback in the shop to check what I meant. They claimed to be surprised. Anyway got my new unit home and was testing it out. It seemed to have the same problem. Meanwhile the sales guy rang to say they had tried it in the shop and that it might be my reception.
I got a reception booster and so far it has recorded what i have programmed. Playback quality is still a bit patchy at times.
Now I have to think about my next move.
Does the disc still play in other dvd player? My ILO has always been picky to play rentals so I just have a cheap COBY player hooked up to front inputs of my ILO. I use it to watch the dvds, only use the Ilo to record. Saves wear and tear on my ILO but cannot find a universal remote to operate them both and my tv. If it still records okay thats what I would do, just watch the discs in a secondary unit. Sounds like time to start shopping for new recorder.
Sounds like the scart lead is not in straight. Scart connectors have the audio pins at one end, and the video pins at the other. If the lead isn't in straight then you often get sound and no picture and vice versa.
Check the connection by pushing the scart lead in securely. (Both DVD and TV end of the lead)
