Please, quick help from anyone with my Toshiba D-KR10. I have just gotten this unit, so I set up a timer record to try out the recording. But it will not show a picture when I press play. It shows that the disc is in play because the counter is going, but no picture shows on my tv. I have gone over the manuel over and over, switced it to the right input, but can't see what i'm not doing. Please tell me what may wrong.

I have same TOSHIBA D-VR4XSU VCR/DVD RECORDER. According to the
manual, you (COULD) can use for recording: DVD-RAM, DVD-RW and DVD-R (see page 50). WRONG!!! I bought all 3 types of discs, but after few
weeks I got same experience you got now. Just type DVD-R works. The other
types were - wasted money and a lot of time trying to finalize the disc. I had to
throw all into the garbage. Try DVD-R and you should?? be O.K.
Hi there, Make sure you Finalize the disc when you are done recording, otherwise it won't be read on other players or computers. To do this you go to Setup> Disc and choose Finalize. It takes a few minutes per disc, don't turn off the player while it it finalizing. In the same Setup menu you can choose an option to autofinalize the disc when you are done recording, so you do not have to to it manually each time.
This is from the KR10 manual. Hope it helps.
1. Set the clock before setting a timer.
2. Insert a recordable disc with enough space.
1. Press [TIMER PROG] on the remote
2. Use up/down arrows to select "New Program" then press [ENTER]
3.Use up/down arrows to enter the date, then press right arrow
4. Use the arrow keys to enter the start and end time, then press right arrow key.
5. Use the up/down arrows to select the external input position to which your cable/satellite box is connected, then press [right arrow]
6. Use the up/down arrows to select a recording mode.
7. Press [ENTER] when all items are entered.
8. Press red [I/O ON STANDBY] to set a timer programming.
DO NOT FORGET THIS LAST STEP! The timers will not work if the recorder is not in standby mode.
This is more a work-around than a solution, as the unit is failing to function normally; however, having the identical problem I observed that the unit is failing to power on at 2:00 minutes before beginning recording, a necessary step to record to DVD.
My work-around is the following:
1) Set up the timer, inputting necessary date, time, etc. as normal. With the unit still powered on, start the timed recording mode by pressing timer set, as normal. You will see the red clock icon and the DVD logo iluminate on the VFD.
2) Press the Standby-On power button. This will power the unit on in VCR mode. You should at this time be unable to switch from VCR to DVD mode since the DVD is still in timer mode. LEAVE THE UNIT POWERED ON in this manner. The timer will function and the DVD will record normally.
I have no clue why my unit suddenly forgot how to power up on its own in order to record to DVD. If anyone has an answer for that one please post!
I have the same problem. What I found was the recorder will not recognize a disc that was inserted into the machine and then the machine is turned off. If I load a disc, either a -R or -RW, program the timer recording and DO NOT turn the recorder off, then the unit does make the recording. I called the Toshiba techs and the only thing they recomended was to return the machine to them for repair at a flat rate of $140. The unit only cast $180. A friend of mine has the same recorder and he is going to check if it will recognise a previously loaded disc after the unit is turned off and back on. Perhaps everyone with this problem should call Toshiba so they can make a firmware update for the DR4s. I hope this helps. MW
