Pioneer dvr-rt500 error incorrect disk-c104 all other functions work

SOURCE: Toshiba DVR recorder incorrect disk message

You could try the factory initializing process I found on another webesite (AVS Forums): "Had this message pop up a few weeks ago. Tried the solutions in the manual, no go. Tried unplugging it for 7 days, no go. Called Toshiba customer service @1-800-631-3811, the tech told me: 1) turn on TV and set to receive your DVD signal 2) Turn on DVD player and remove any discs 3) put Dvd / VCR selector on DVD 4) at the same time, push channel selector button UP (^) along with the PLAY button 5) hold the buttons down until TV screen shows "Initializing" message, release buttons, let DVD player go thru it's reset cycle and shut down 6) turn DVD player on and watch your DVD movies now Works like a charm. Put this in your manual for the next time." My unit has not worked since December of last year, I only had it for one year and it conveniently stopped working right after the one year warranty. My unit was not functioning whatsoever past turning it on, but when I did the factory initialization I was able to operate my unit again....UNFORTUNATELY, it still does not read disks, I still get the "Incorrect Disk" message. I guess I could consider it progress. But still try it, it may work for you. My unit just seems to be fried beyond repair. If anyone has any suggestions on how to correct the incorrect disk problem, I would be greatly appreciative. I'm not ready to throw mine away yet!

When done the machine turns off automatically, and you turn it onagain. Every time mine has stopped working this has fixed it. This might work with yours as well.

What is the rca universal remote control code for dvr-rt500


If your RCA remote is universal, you can use its code search feature to find a code that will control some or all functions of your Pioneer DVD/VCR player. If searching is unsuccessful, your RCA remote may not have a suitable code in its library.

When i copy a dvd it will not paly in this player. but it will play in other players . why?


Older DVD players can't recognize the data. It's not really a problem, it's just the way they are made. More info can be found here... http://desktopvideo.about.com/od/creatingdvds/f/dvdnoplay.htm

Solutions to incorrect disk error c105 & c104


Hello gjbrokke,

First make sure the disc is compatible with the dvd player (CD-R+ , or CD-R - )

Second make sure the region code of the dvd you burned is compatible with the dvd region settings on your dvd player.

One of those two are preventing the disc from playing in your sansui player.

Pioneer Dvr-633h-s


This idea may work when a multitude of devices become erratic in function, display info on the screen that is incorrect or just won't work at all.

Lightning strikes near by (even with the device connected to an isolation strip) power interruptions and excessive heat can cause electronic equipment to mal function.

Do the following:

Make certain that the device has ADEQUATE VENTILATION!

Remove all dust from the grill in the back of the unit in the fan location.

Un plug the device for at least 24 hours and permit any stored current to drain from the unit.

Then restore current to the device.

If the problem persists, plug and unplug the unit several times, observing the change in the screen, until the info there changes to the proper display.

If this does not work, you need a tech assist.

Angelo.

HDD Error


Since my last post, I have rectified the problem.....

1) I opened the unit to find a seagate HDD
2) I downloaded the Seatools in dos format and burned the image on to a cd rom
3)Taking out the HDD from my recorder,I hooked it up to another pc and ran the seatools disk @ bootup.
I tried for 2 hrs to repair the bloody thing ( 160 gb!) so i gave up and tried to erase the full HDD...which worked.
4) on my laptop i navigated to Pioneers site and found my recorder along with instructions and a zip file that contained 2 files.
5)After reading the destructions erm i mean instructions ;) I put the HDD back into the recorder and followed the instructions again..

Crossing my fingers i turned the recorder back on and to my amazement i was able to have more functionality..BUT... it says my HDD name error so I ran the disk again and wallah! all worked XDDDD

Here are the links

http://www.pioneer.co.uk/uk/content/support/support/update/DVR.html check if your model is there.

Pioneer DVR-K17RS ATA ACER CODE=39


If you can't restored the driver, you should reload the operating system using Alt+F10 or using disks (not from windows, boot from disks)
In your case, it's look like you can't access the dvd in windows, i hope you can access in dos mode.
