After putting in both the recordable disc and the disc to be recorded, the display shows 'preparing' and will not continue. The machine then refuses to eject either disc unless you unplug it! I have had different messages displayed the most common being 'initialising'. I did leave the machine to it once thinking it would start recording- 8hours later it still had 'initialisng' on the display! When I first got this player it was very reliable, now though....please help!
The first thing to try is cleaning the lenses,sounds obvious,but i think thats why its continuing to try :initialising: if that fails the lense that reads the disc or both likely need realigning most problems that acure whith any cdplayers ect are down to the lenses.

Hi, Found a document DVDR3450H_3452H_3460H_eurp FWUpgradewk635.pdf Describes procedure of firmware update and disc formatting. Some cut'n'paste from the document:
2. Preparations for new HDD In the event when the set unable to boot up or recordings not stored due to an defective HDD, the HDD will have to be replaced with the steps describe below: 1. Replace the Faulty HDD with a new HDD. 2. Before connecting the new HDD on the Digital Board ,the jumper pin at the connector of the HDD is to be removed. 3. Connect the new HDD to the Digital Board. 4. Power up the set . It will open the tray and prompt to load the upgrading disc.(the upgrade disc is the same disc under firmware upgrading.) 5. The set will display “Load”. 6. Put the upgrade disc and close the tray and the set will show “Copy” ……… “Boot” 7. The rest of the procedure follows the software upgrade given in 1B -Procedure to apply the firmware upgrade. *Note : 1)Do not press any button or interrupt the main supply ,otherwise the set may become defective. 2)When the HDD formatting is successful ,the set will go to standby mode.
Try using Sony +R discs. or +RW's are good, any brand as long as they are +'s. For some reason alot of +R discs brands will not work, I wait and just get Sony +R or the +RW's on sale and stock up and I have no more troubles. Mine is the 05MU. The ZU is a little strange with the RW but will still record. Hope this helps.
You sure it's recognizing the CDR? And you are using 'consumer audio' cdr? Watch it at all times. If it 'opc fails' after you put a blank in it still shows as a CDR and 0:00 on the display but won't record. It's easy to miss.
you need to make shure you get the dvd ready i suggest buy a dvdrw but it in the dvd go to the setup page and in there hit disc it will atomaticaly prepare the dvd cause you cant just put a dvd in and record it needs to prepare (open the disc) also if you are going to watch the recording on another machine after recording you need to finalise the dvd when they ask you to or it will only work on the rca machine
