Solved the problem by connecting the freeview box back into the dvd recorder. Apparently because the dvdr was made before tvs with integrated freeview, it can only recieve decoded signals from a freeview box, ie analog

There are a number of different RW DVDs out there and your problem could be one of the following:-
That you are not following the instructions
That the discs you arer using are not the correct ones(usually they have a leter or a number on the disc that marks the diference between diferent discs from different manufacturers) I would suggest buying the Phillips discs then that cancels that problem.
That the leads you are using are incorrect or faulty.
A fault on the machine.
The last option is that you physically go to either where you bought it or the philipps centre and ask them to show you how to do it. You paid for it so you deserve the service.

This usually happens when you close the drawer with no disc in it. There is a strong magnet inside the DVD-drive that keeps the spinning disc in the correct position. But when the drive is empty, the magnet is connected to tough to its counterpart (no disc in between) and the worn out motor and/or transmission (belt) is not able to pull them apart in order to open the disc tray.
How to fix - "brute-force-attack":
Press OPEN and give the disc draw a couple of decent slaps (or snap at the tray cover with your forefinger) until it opens. Repeat procedure, if motor stops before drawer is open.
How to fix - "high-tech-approach":
Disconnect power chord. Locate the slot provided at the bottom of the device, near the smaller, left clip holding the front panel. Insert a screwdriver into it at the far right (when viewing from the front), so you can push a small white plastic-lever-thingy (can be seen thru the slot) to the far left. Now the tray is partly opened and can be pulled out completely.
Don't you never ever close your old machine with no disc in the tray - or just start over again...
