SOURCE: Presidian PDR 3222 not recording when record button pressed

I am beginning to think the machine works with slower discs but a firmware update will enable the machine to function with the newer "16x" and other discs. Unfortunately, neither Presidian nor the "real" manufacturer (whose name slipped my mind) seem to currently have the update available on their web sites.

The electronic procedure:
Switch off the unit at the wall plug. On the front panel, hold in the <RECORD> and <EJECT> buttons at the same time, and keeping them held, switch on the power at the wall again. Keep holding the buttons until the disc tray opens.

SOURCE: dvdr philips 3305 blocked

Unplug your player from the power supply (do not just set it to standby). Leave the player for a few minutes. Plug your player back into the power supply and switch on the machine. This should unblock it.

SOURCE: i can not get timer

Good day!!!


E40 means "Some portion has not been recorded because of program overlapping. Recording time did not start at start time."



Don't feel bad or dumb. Virtually everyone (including me) made the same mistake you did. The owner's manual does explain the entire process thoroughly and correctly, on pages 30-31 under TIMER RECORDING.

Using the TIMER button on the remote control permits you to build a list of up to (8) future video programming event(s) you wish to record. You performed that part of the process exactly right. However, you merely failed to place the unit in the STANDBY MODE by pressing the TIMER SET button on the remote control, which is the FINAL step in the process!

Placing the unit in STANDBY MODE effectively powers it down, just as if you'd turned it OFF as you normally do. The difference being, when the unit's in STANDBY MODE it'll automatically turn itself ON, tune to the correct channel and begin recording at the start-time specified, in the entry you made using the TIMER menu. Certainly, it would've been far more intuitive if they'd named the button STANDBY instead of TIMER SET.

If you want to use your DVDR in the meanwhile to view a DVD or VHS movie, just press the TIMER SET button on the remote control again to take it out of STANDBY mode. Just be darn sure to reinsert a BLANK DVD back in the tray and place the unit back in STANDBY MODE again, once you're done.

While overseas products (such as those made in China) are dazzlingly low in cost (due to slave labor wages) we must remember the documentation's written by people whose native language and culture is NOT the same as ours. This becomes painfully apparent upon having to decipher the documentation accompanying such products.

I have recorded on a Verbatim DVD+RW disc on my Philips 3305 DVDR but it will not play back on my friend's Panasonic DMR-EX98VEB. My recorder will not finalise/make compatible the disc. Why?


Could be that the disk itself is incompatible with your friend's machine. Or your buddies machine may be starting to exhibit playback issues. Try another disk and see what happens.

I think the better task is (A)
You can try switch scart's!! Then try to record on DVDR or leave as it is and look out for picture on your VCR!!! If you do (B) you will lose a picture quality!
good luck

I have a Magnavox MRV700VR. I can record on a DVDR, but when I try to record on a DVDRW it tells me "disc error". Why?


It will be either that you have not formatted the disc or that you are using the wrong type of disc. You will need a DVD+RW on a + machine or DVD-RW on a - machine. Most recorders will playback the other type but not record on it.

Vcr recorda blank when digital tv is put on standby.


this is because you are recording a direct connection (what is on the screen is recorded) that is an option with some equipment.. unfortunately this means if there is nothing on the screen well you get nothing..

You need to record from the machines own built in tuner dont use direct record.. a vcr/pvr/dvdr after all remember is like a tv without a screen that can record it has its own channels to do this

Similar problem as you helped me solve before.


OK, I think I see the problem there.
The aerial lead from the DVDR to TV should be removed.
You should have it setup the same as the other Freeview - VCR - TV
Nutshell time:
Main aerial to Freeview input.
Loop aerial from freeview output to DVDR areial input (all this does is allow you to watch freeview, or standard both out of the DVDR)
So..
Scart from Freeview to DVDR input
Scart from DVDR output to TV
Set DVDR to AV input mode.
Set TV to AV (whatever number you need for that..you now won't get anything on screen unless you have the right input selected)

If you can now see the Freeview picture on the TV and change the channels with the Freeview remote then you should be set for recording.

Having the aerial and a scart lead both going to the TV is not needed.
