Question about Sony RDR-VX530 DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

The DVD blank disk is ejected each time I load. Also happens to DVD disks with previous recording. Cannot play recorded DVDs or use blank DVDs for new recording. A message "Disc Error" appears each time the disk is ejected. Previously I have had no problem with loading or recording on blank DVDs. Please advise. Thanks.

The laser head is covered in dust so the sensor detects a very low return signal. This is interpreted as a bad disk.
The sensor must be cleaned. Open the unit, access the mechanism and do a thorough cleaning inside it, access the laser head and using a can of compressed air blow all the dust on, in and around it - be especially thorough with the space between the lens and the sensor. Finally  wipe the lens gently with a q-tip.
If this doesn't completely eliminate the problem then the dust has been baked on the surface of the plastic lens - this is unfixable you will have to replace the laser head, the entire mechanism if you can't find just the head.

Hello, My Philips DVDR7300H has a recording error after burning to dvd - burns VERY Slowly, and then gets hung on 95% - then "Disk Error" and the disk is then unreadable. It reads other previously recorded...


This happens with a number of drives.
1. DVD Dye type - but as you have tried DVDs from a batch that works seems unlikely.
2. Some drives dont like +R or -R If using +R try -R etc. Also some drives have problems with RW's used previously
3. Drive head travel is faulty. Sometimes only recording a max of 4Gb or 90% on a disk works OK.
Good Luck

sounds like what your doing is correct, See if you can locate a reset button on it and reset it. Did you try connecting to the TV that it worked on previously? Let me know.

Since it went into "disk recovery mode" it now will not play dvds


Got the same problem. Happened 2 months after guarantee expired. **** machine. The only good thing is the harddrive and that is made by HITACHI not Panasonic! I go Sony next time. Panasonic quoted £200 plus to fix the problem. I only paid £220 when I bought it new.

Dvd player wont play


Make sure that the DVD Disc is of the format that your DVD recorder can read. For example, if your recorder specifically requires a DVD -R type disk, it will puke on a DVD +R disk.

Invalid disk


I contacted Gateway and found out that the AR-230 will not work with anything more than 4x DVD's. Usually it will format DVD-RW's but avoid memorex brand. Usually any other cheep brand will work.
