RD85DT HDD/DVD PVR error 14

I have a RD85DT HDD/DVD PVR recorder which has been very good until now.
I recorded to a DVD and it would not finalize.
After this an Error 14 came up, how do I clear this error?
Is it a case of cleaning the DVD drive?

System error


The built in dvd drive of the Hr-720 is very useful to be able to copy videos from the hdd to dvds. After a few months, my dvd rw refused to format rw disks and gave system error messages.

Managed to fix the problem by doing the following:

Remove the top pvr cover. Then the dvd drive cover is very easy to remove, only 5 screws and it is off.

Cleaned lens with cotton bud + cd cleaner fluid

Sprayed lens assembly traversing rod with wd40

Adjusted dvd potentiometer (circled in red) - turned +540 degrees clockwise = 1.5 turns


The significant tweak here is the pot adjustment. The idea is to reduce the diode resistance to get more current through the dvd laser = more power. I noticed a difference straight away with the first tweaks of 180 deg at a time, the dvd would load more quickly and several formatted successfully. The pot should be set to between 4k-6k ohms, but there is no obvious way of measuring this.

So Im hoping this should be ok now. It is worth trying as the dvd drive in its previous state was useless electronic junk anyway, although the hdd has always been fine.

All saved recordings have disappeared from menu. system has reset itself and now all recording in the HDD play menu have disapperaed. They must still be on the HDD because nothing else has been...


dissambling and taking the hard drive out of the dvr will most likely void the warrenty how it is possible.

once the hard drive is removed you may be able to plug it into your PC and gain access to the files on the hard drive. These how ever may be specially encoded and protected files that you cant open.

-you PVR may have also done a hard reset and formatted the hard drive. This would delete all the files on the PVR.

-unlike tapes, erasing a hard drive does not require you to record over it. just because nothing else has been recorded does not mean your data is still there. sorry.

Connecting PVR and satellite receiver


make sure you have a connection from one of your scart sockets (assuming you are using scart) on your sat to your pvr and then a connection (scart/hdmi?) to your tv from the pvr.

if you have a second scart or better still hdmi on your sat then plug that into tv

set top box scart output to tv

you do not say which tv model number you have so I dont know what input sockets you have but I will assume a couple of scart inputs and maybe a hdmi in (if hd version of tv) these days that would be considered a minimum amout of inputs so the setup suggestion above should be fine with that

Recording from DVD recorder to disc


Christine,

1) Put a compatible DVD in the tray. (I have noticed that I must format DVD+R discs, but others are formatted okay for recording -- such as DVD-R and DVD RW)
2) Close the tray.
3) Make sure the player is set to HDD and not to DVD. It will indicate HDD, DVD, or SD on the LCD screen.
4) Using the remote press the "functions" button.
5) Select "copy" from the menu when it appears.
6) You will now see the list of programs you have recorded to the HDD. Highlight the one you want to copy and press "Enter" on the remote.
7) I think there are two confirmation screens that come up, press start or continue or whatever it says.
8) My recorder generally takes about 14 minutes at high speed to copy a two-hour program. If the program is longer than 2- hours, you must divide it into tow or more shorter segments for more than one DVD.
9) If you want to select several shorter programs (not to exceed 2-hours combined) highlight the programs individually pressing the PAUSE button on the remote. This places a check mark next to each of the programs. When you finish, press the enter button on the remote and go through the confirmations screens again.
10) If the DVD is nor rewritable, it will automatically run the "finalize" program. It takes about 3 minutes and runs after recording. This formats the DVD so that it can be played in non-Panasonic players. If it is a DVD-RW, they you must finalize it manually if you want to watch it on other types of players.

Hope this helps,

Nancy
