Question about Spectroniq PD-1100 DVD Player

1 Answer

Problem with 'loading'

Watching a DVD, put on pause for about 10 minutes. When we hit play, it did not do anything. We finally took the DVD out and when we put back in machine, it just kept 'loading' for about 5 minutes - it then gave us the error code 'bad disc'. We tried cleaning the disc, same problem. We even tried to put in another DVD, same thing - about 5 minutes of 'loading' then bad disc. We have a Spectroniq
DVD player and have not had this issue before. Any ideas.

Have the insignia DVD/VCR combo but after a few minutes or watching a DVD it starts to skip like four or five seconds of the movie then it starts to skip every second and then finally it freezes. Even if...


Hello
Its laser Picku Unit is faulty. Either it may be dirty, or its laser beam intensity has sent down. Just put a cleaning disc, and play it for atleast three times. If this helps you, you can understand that the lens of the laser assembly was dirty. If this also doesn't help you, repace the laser assembly with same type and number is the only remedy. OK.

HOW DO YOU BURN A DVD ON A SONY DVD RECORDER RDR


Make sure your Sony input signal is on L1 or L3 (the inputs in back of recorder) or on L2 which is for inputs for cameras(located in front).Once you get a signal, you're where you need to be. Choose your recording mode for recording speed (pull down the flap on the remote control for this button and also the input button).
Choose from between1 hour and six hours. To archive really important stuff, stick with the first 3 speeds. TV recording can be on 3, 4 or 6 hour mode.
Push the record/pause button once. This will put the recorder into the record/pause mode and then it awaits you pushing it again to start recording immediately. Just pushing record will force the machine into a 3 to five second delay before actually recording anything so you might mess up and miss the first few seconds of your input. Suggest you use a dvr-rw or dvd+rw to practice on.

When your recording is done, just push the pause again. It stops recording but allows you to add more on to the first recording without starting a new chapter if you want. Just continue to release the pause button to continue.
If you are satisfied that you are finished, then push the pause button to stop recording. Wait for the info to be written(flashing message on screen). When it stops, you may play the dvd.
Notice- since the dvd has not been FINALIZED, you may only play it back on this unit without finalizing. It will not play on other dvd players unless you finalize it first.
To finalize, look on remote for the TOOL button. Press it once. Now push DISC INFO once. Use arrow keys and enter button on remote for the following. Scroll down to FINALIZE and press enter.
Use arrow keys to scroll to OK. push the ENTER button. Finalizing should take between 30 seconds and 2 minutes.

Warning- if titles or chapters are to typed in, it must be done BEFORE finalizing. Finalizing afterwards cannot be done.
Erasing can be done in part or all if using an RW+ or RW- disc

I had the same problem - you are (as I was) turning off the camera too soon after you hit the stop button after recording a scene. Wait until the word "disc access" appears (about 5 seconds after you hit the stop button. This "marks" the end of the scene. I just don't know how to edit that scene out or if it will delete it out. I know after finalizing the disc that scene will pause for a while (10 to 20 seconds even) when you watch it through the DVD player to the TV.
