    MVDR2102 - stuck on hello. Connected and set-up unit correctly. Tested record function successfully by recording 2 hrs at SP with OTR. Finalized disc successfully. Tested timer recording per user manual - prepared blank disc for recording, set timer to record two programs of 1 hour each at SP. After timer set-up indicated "valid" I turned the unit off instead of pressing timer. Pressed the standby/on button on remote and panel displays "hello" but does not turn on. Pressed the Timer button - no change. Buttons on panel and remote are locked out. Reset unit per user manual - "Press Standby/Off button, then unplug unit for one minute" - no change. Unplugged unit for 5 minutes - no change. Sent email to "online" customer support [ www.memorexelectronics.com ] describing problem, so far no reply.

    I have the same problem. My MVDR2102 worked fine for recording quite a few DVD's from my VHS tapes. A couple of days ago, it froze, and all I get is "hello". It will not turn off unless I unplug it. I've tried everything. Very frustrating as I am trying to put old family home movies on DVD.

    Thanks for any help.

Peoblem is related to the IC incharge of the DVD rotation, it seems problem is related to a weak solder process, IC gets hot enough and IC pins get unsoldered not all but with one pin or more desolderd pins you have the problem.(Reballing) Solution resolder all pins on this IC Ic goes in the lower side of the MPEG Board and goes close to the side pointing to the DVD.
I fixed this way..EGYR

Trouble with DVD+RW Disks being compatiable or staying formatted


cos they are cheap - get some decent branded discs such as TDK or tayo yuden and it should be fine

Also check the manual and or requirements on there website and it should show which are the best discs to use for that player but TDK or tayo yuden should be fine.

www.svp.co.uk or any where you can buy discs from should be fine

I have a Zenith XBR413 dvd/vcr recorder. Just bought some Memorex DVD+RW blank discs to do some recording. When I put the disc in the recorder it says "Unknown disc - check disc again" and pops the disc...


You may need dvd- disks instead! ( it usually one or the other!) and if your player does take a DVD+ you might have to change brands of disks ( I know this sounds stupid but all disks are not created equal! and do not work in all players!
Please rate this response and help keep this site free!
THANK YOU!

Dvd recordings will not play on any other dvd player


Hi,

Initially, pls verify that all the recorded DVDs have been finalized, no further recording to be done on the disc. If this finalization is not performed, the recorded discs will only play on the unit it was recorded/created on and no other standalone player.

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.

RCA DRC8312 DVD/VCR player is stuck on Hello


Hi,

The "H E L L O" message is part of the booting/initialization process of the built-in micro processor of the RCA DVD Recorder. Just like in a PC, it can also suffer from crashes/hangs.

Initially, pls try a reset. "disconnect it from all power and cable sources, leave off for 1/2 hour, then plug back in and hold the stand by buttons for the remote and on the machine at the same time"

If the above is not corrective, then you may have to consider a repair, probable areas to start checking would be:
  • firmware, might need a re-flash or update;
  • hard drive, might have bad sectors or require replacement.
Alternately, if you are not considering a DIY (do-it-yourself), you may have to re-evaluate the options since in some instances, cost and time of repair may no longer justify having the unit serviced.

Hope that 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.

Initalizing DVD-Rs


are you using a quality brand of dvd-r like memorex.

Also after making a recording you must finalize the disc you recorded so it will play on other players.

My Memorex DVD Recorder (MVDR 2102) won't open


Most likely one or more capacitors on the main board went bad. I just fixed one last night with the exact symptom.
