if it is saying "welcome " it is <on> but maybe the logic needs a reset
It may be a dirty DVD disk >>> clean with soap and warm water and dry with a cotton towel >> then try again.
this also may be a dirty lens
>>> compressed air blown inside the load bay sometimes will remove the dust build up
Hope this helps.

Set your Television to the corresponding input line. If you have the DVD recorder connected to your television input 1 line. Set your television to input 1 line. The recorder is just waiting for your command to set your time and area ...etc.

This is not a solution but was told by repairers that an ic has gone bad.
I resolved the problem for a while when I removed internal cable and some how got it working.It worked as long as it was powered up. Had a power failure and now battle to resolve the problem. Suspect that it can be a low voltage out of the regulator ic. The mystery was that when I got it working it worked perfectly. The firmware is also doing a power test and I think this is failing and thats why it is display welcome.

I have similar problem. I found that if I remove the outer casing (disconnect from mains supply first) and disconnect the DVD cable to the units circuit board then power up again it would clear the problem, but on reconnecting it then trying again the ‘Welcome’ message returned as before. I’m guessing it’s a problem with the DVD drive or its connection. The only other thing I have noticed is, if you do manage to clear the ‘Welcome’ message and leave the unit switched on with the standby button the unit works as normal.

I've had the same problem. I've actually unplugged the unit and it's been unplugged for probably about two weeks. When I reconnected the power this morning the problem persisted where the DVD Recorder was stuck on the Welcome Screen. As a last ditch effort I pressed and held the power button for 10 to 15 seconds until the word "Welcome" dissapeard of the screen and back on. This seems to have reset the unit. I know I should have tried this a long time ago. So much for reading the instruction manual! I'm just glad it's working again!
