Hi. I'm sorry this isn't the fix for your machine but there are plenty of these around that suddenly give a blank screen on the TV for no reason. I read on a forum like this one that the answer is to use the HDMI button on the remote but allow time in between presses. This helped me lots today but what I would like to add is you must come away from using the HD and go to Free View before this will work. I did by accident and thats when the HDMI button allowed me to get a picture again. Just wanted to share this as I was helped a lot from the internet with this very problem. Cheers, Shaun.

    The symptoms are exactly the same as any tv, dvd, satellite receiver or vcr that has a faulty power supply and usually shows itself after the power is removed. The power supply does not come out of standby and needs fixing or replacing. It is certain components that have weakened through age or heat.

when you have split and seperated the part of the viceo you want to put onto a dvd, highlight it on the list of recordings and press the blue "playlist +" button on the remote. This will have added the recording onto the list of items to be recorded to dvd. Now press the red "RECORD/DUB" button. This will then record the file to the disc.

When y ou are notified that the process is complete,you will need to finalise the disc in order for it to be playable on other machines.
While the DVD is still in the drive uses the blue "function" button, and select DVD.
Shortly a list of titles on the DVD you have recorded will appear. Press the "UP" arrow on the remote once and a new menu will appear. One of the options here is to finalize disc. hilght this option and click the "RIGHT" arrow once - press "select" to finalise the disc.

We have a wharfedale dvdr24hdmi player recorder but the hddvd we have purchased will not play.A note inside the dvd disc suggests we consult yourselves for a firmware or software update.

The wharfedale dvdr24 is an upscaling dvd player and not a hd dvd player which is why it wont recognise the disc you are trying to play.

HDMI just means that it connects to your tv via an hdmi cable, so unfortunatley you'll need to buy a hd dvd player to play your disc.

How do i access the Hard Drive out of a Wharfedale DVDR24HD160F 160GB HDD DVD Recorder

hmm...similar problem here. i've taken the hdd out and plugged it in to the ide port inside my pc. The problem is it's the wrong file system. Your pc will not see it. It is however just a normal hdd so you can re-partition it and give it a new file systm ie ntfs but you lose all the data :(. that's as far as i've got, hope it helps someone.

Change the Scart setting (in the setup menu) from the default setting (RGB) to the other available setting (CVSC?).
