Frequent disc error messages

My Sanyo DRW-500 DVD recorder is about 3 years old. I have been getting disc error messages when trying to record on a new disc. Sometimes if i mess with the door a little on the front, then i can get it to work. this issue is becoming more frequent. is there some way that i can fix this? thanks!

    When trying to record something, I will often get a "disc error" message; then the unit becomes frozen and the only way to unfreeze it is to unplug the machine from the outlet.  I have thrown away as many DVDs as I have used, all because of this problem.

Hi,

Based on your post/description, there is an alignment problem with your disc tray. The unit has to be opened up and checked for mechanical problems. It is possible that some foreign material is preventing full closure of the tray. It is also possible that lubrication in some areas have caked up and rather than provide ease of mechanical action actually prevents its.

Alternately, the laser lens/eye could also be dirty. This could be corrected with the use of a CD cleaner readily available from most computer/audio shops/stores.

Additionally, a can of compressed air can be of big help in cleaning dust and small particles from the crannies and nooks of the mechanism/assembly.

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, you may need to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Have you set the Sanyo to "antenna" or to "cable" ?
If you've tried one setting, try the other.

I record a program, I can play it & see it on the same recorder, but, If I play the DVD on any other DVD Player, an error message says " Improper Disc" or it won't read the DVD. What...


After you finish recording you have to finalize the disc before you can play it in another DVD player.The owners manual will have a section to tell you how to finalize the disc. WARNING!!! Once you have finalized the disc you will no longer be able to record on it. If this helps please rank me and leave a comment. I do not get paid in any way but I like doing this and want to make sure I am helping. I am adding a link where you can download the manual in case you lost it.

I recieve the error message no disc


Try getting a cleaner disc and clean the laser pickup. If this doesn't do it the pickup is bad and would not be feasible to repair as the pickups cost as much as the whole unit. Thanks
