    NO I ALREADY REALIZED THAT THIS COULD BE THE PROBLEM. THE TOUGH PART IS I ONLY USED THIS THING TWICE FOR CD PLAYBACK AND IT WAS IN THE BOX FOR A YEAR, I DON'T KNOW HOW IT WOULD HAVE GOTTEN SO MUCH DUST ON THE LENS, UNLESS IT WAS NEVER REALLY REBUILT AT THE FACTORY.

Hello,

this is happening because the laser (lens) of the player is not sharp anymore. It takes a very sharp laser (lens) to record a DVD disc.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you would have to change the whole lens completely to a brand new one. Or, to better clean the lens, loose/unscrew the player's cover, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens completely. This will help to wipe off dust on the laser (lens)

Good luck.

After several years of trouble-free service, it no


I'm hoping your problem is intermittent. Then there's hope.

I've been recording CD's for 10 years and have had similar experience on playback (way after it was too late to procure the source and do it again). My symptom was a nearly constant crackling laid over the audio (constant ineffective error concealment or correction).

I'm a professional Enterprise Data Storage (Tape and Disk) career customer engineer, so I know a little about things and how to troubleshoot Read errors.

I could never pin it down to anything repeatable, like media, but it seemed to happen most on CD's-R-US cheapo discs. The best I can offer is try some different brands (or lots) of media and see if you can find one or two that work.

Feed back what the results are if successful. Many people have the same problems.

In most cases these types of home appliances are not repaired, the cost new is less than any repair cost if parts are even available which I doubt. As far as a replacement buy new, no refurbished, bad idea.

Try adjusting the input level so the meter stays close to 0 when recording. It sounds like the levels are too hot.

Distortion!


did you record them on the same unit?
It may be an alignment problem.
If it's the same unit, try cleaning the heads.
There are dat cleaning tapes too, but they beat on the heads.

Try using 8x and lower DVDs and -R ones; try cleaning with CD cleaning disk and then try recording a few min again. If that doesn't help try unplugging and waiting about 30min then put in disk that was previously recorded and go to last item and play it to end (if 2hr long skip to last skip and then play until it finishes) - now try just recording a few min using the manual DVD record button and see if error comes up again - usually this unplugging somehow resets everything. Hope this helps ya'll.
