I have a Sansui DVD-RW recorder. I recorded something from the TV and turned the volume down soon after it started. When I played it back I couldn't get the volume to increase. I thought volume was set automatically at a reasonable pitch when recording and that altering it during recording would not actually affect the playback. Am I wrong here?

Re: Low volume on playback
The volume control on the TV does not affect the recording. However, if you were recording from a set top box, and you turned the volume down on the box and not the TV, then this would cause the problem you describe.
If this is the case, then try to keep the STB volume at maximum and only use the TV volume control.
Also, some DVD players and VCRs have a lower output than the standard TV tuner, so an increase in volume is usually needed.
You might want to try some test recordings to see what happens.

The DVD has burned incorrectly and the data has likely corrupted somewhat to the point where the DVD player/writer can't read it. You may be able to watch it on your computer with a DVD drive.
Try saving it to your computer, then erasing the disc and trying to record something short to it and play it back - if it plays back, it's likely to have been a recording problem, however, if you get the same problem, it may be a dodgy disc, a faulty DVD player/writer, or a format problem.
Try this, in order left to right.
Copy DVD to PC -> Erase DVD -> Record on DVD from TV -> Play back
If plays back
Erase DVD -> Continue as normal
Buy DVD-RW (emphasis on the minus) -> Try using that
If that works continue as normal, otherwise...
Return the DVD player/writer under warranty for repair/replacement.
DVD-RW discs are ideal for temporary video recording and data backup, but they are not recommended for successful finalising, as there is no guarantee that the disc will work in another device.
Have you tried using DVD-R discs? these CAN be recorded in video mode AND finalised for compatible playback in other players. I assume the DMR-ES30V is a DVD/VCR combo unit - if so, the DVD recorder will not recognise RW discs; only DVD-RAM and DVD-R.
DVD-R discs are recommended for video recording and finalising in this model. (later model Panasonic DVD recorders allow RW disc recording).
Hello timmy: The recording process on the dvd recorder side is done is done by a seperate lens from the playback, so there could be something wrong with the writable side of the optical assembly, another thing to consider trying is the cleaning disc if you haven't tried this, another brand of blank disc and finally a firmware update is available from panasonic for the specific model you have, I don't know if you have updated it but here is the overall description: DMR-EH55 DVD Recorder Firmware Update
Corrects DVD Recorder hang-up or freezing during DVD playback caused by connection to Scientific Atlanta cable box model # 3250.
Resolves U71 error message caused by HDMI connection to Philips TV.
Improves DVD-Video playback of DVD+RW discs.
Prevents DVD Recorder from turning on Panasonic TV's power by HDAVI control (EZ Sync) when connected with HDMI at completion of copying or finalizing.
Resolves SET CLOCK MANUALLY tab being grayed out after a power failure.
I hope this is helpful and the update is available from panasonic.com, all you need is to type the model number in the search windows after you click the support option. Thanks!
There is no solution for your problem. I thought my 4500 wouldn't finalize also but what is happening is that it didn't record on the disc you used. This is an older model unit and will not record on 16x discs. I believe you are boinked.
