Won't read unfinalized discs recorded on it

I have had this unit since Christmas. It has worked fine but now won't read unfinalized discs I recorded on the same unit. It reads blank or finalized discs just fine. I called Panasonic and they are sending me a disc to put into the player that might help "reset the software". Any other ideas out there how to fix this until the disc arrives from Panasonic? Thanks!

Wont read discs


follow this steps, and use the common sense.God bless you
If the player skips, make sure that the DVD disc is not dirty or scratched..Use the cleaner disk buy it from R. Shack.
If the tray won't open or close properly, check the belt for dirt or wear. Then check the tray for misalignment. If needed, remove, clean, lubricate, and reinstall the tray following the instructions in the owner's manual.

I tried to record a dvd and was unsucessful. Now the player won't work. I insert a disc and I can hear the player trying to read the disc. After three tries an error message is displayed saying:...


Hello
It seems that the Laser Pickup unit has some troouble with it. Just inser an audio CD and see whether the player reads the disc. If it reads, try with an MP3 disc. If these tow types of discs go with and not with DVD disc, make sure that the Laser Pickup Unit has the trouble. It has to be replaced with same type and number. Actually this is a very skilled work, as you have to disassemble and reassemble the DVD mechanism If you have confidence, and have all tools to do this work, you can do it by yoursef. Otherewise, get this set repaired, either by any experienced service technician, or by the Authorised Service Center for Panasonic at your town, I recomend you to get this set repaired by its authorised service center itself. OK.

Unit cant recoginze/ read a disk


Randy,

I had a dvd-r disc recorded from a Philips dvd recorder that had not yet been finalized when the Philips went bezerk and died. I replaced it with the Sony GX300 and just for an experiment, tried to finalize it in the Sony

It worked. Not to say that it has to work with only THIS combination of the 2 same dvd recorders or twisting the scenario around with the Sony doing the recording and the Philips doing the finalizing. I also have a Sony dvd/vcr recorder to compliment the GX300. I will have to record a disc on the GX300 and try to finalize it with the combo unit to see if it will do well as a back up.

Right now a disc that is not full yet (home movie from my kids birth) is reading "Disc Error" on the GX300. I may have to do it over or see if the combo unit will do the same finalizing as the GX300. It doesn't have the amount of features that the GX300 has but thats what you get with a combo unit vs. a stand alone recorder/player.

If you know someone with another recorder, try to finalize on it. If not , you could find someone on this sight that has a GX300 and mail the discs plus a smalll fee and have them mailed back. Or you could find a used one cheap at some store and return it if it doesn't finalize.

Good luck

How to finalise dvd recording


Press the menu button on your remote - go to finalize disc - follow instructions. Note that VR discs can be played with many if not most DVD-players without finalizing. In fact I have had problems finalizing and unfinalizing discs back and forth. If the disc manager displays only unfinalize disc, the disc is already finalized.

Hello, Dustin / unsupported discs issue


Hi Brad

Before you attempt to purchase a new lens or a new unit, i would suggest that you buy a "Len Cleaner Disc" to clean your lens, if that doesn't help then you should either repair or buy a new lens.

To repair or install a new lens, you will need a service manual(Let me know if you need one.) Then you can do it yourself.

Please also remember that if you attempt to open or repair the player in anyway, it will void your warranty so i think you should take it to Panasonic and have the unit replaced or refunded.

Thank you for using FixYa. Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution as FixYa if it helps you.

Kind regards

Samsung R155 Recording from VHS Issues


The reason why you are having this problem is because you haven't finalized the disc. In able for you to play that Burned DVD that you have you need to Finalized the disc. Finalizing a recordable optical disc means writing the disc's lead-in (the Table of Contents or TOC) and lead-out information (blank data that fills up the unused space at the end of the disc) so that a DVD player will know where the various tracks begin and end. Without the TOC, a conventional DVD player will not be able to read the contents of the disc. Once the disc is finalized, no more information can be written to it. Finalizing takes about two or three minutes. To finalize a DVD-RW/DVD-R: 1. Press the Menu button with the disc stopped. 2. Select Disc Manager and press Enter or the right arrow. 3. Select Disc Finalize and press Enter or the right arrow. You will be asked twice if you are sure that you want to finalize the disc. Select Yes and press Enter. Once the disc is finalized, you cannot delete entries from the record list. After being finalized, the DVD-R/DVD-RW (video mode) operates in the same manner as a DVD-Video. Recorded discs must be finalized in order to play back in non-Samsung DVD players. A DVD-RW disc that has been recorded by DAO (disk-at-once mode) in a PC cannot be unfinalized. A DVD-RW disc that has been recorded in Video Mode on a non-Samsung recorder cannot be unfinalized by a Samsung recorder. A DVD-R disc cannot be unfinalized. Note: Finalization does not apply to DVD-RAM. If you cannot finalize a DVD-R or DVD-RW disc, make sure that Disc Protection is turned off. If you are still having difficulty, you may try calling technical support of SAMSUNG. Note: Do not turn the recorder off while it is finalizing the disc. Data on the disc will be damaged if the finalization process is interrupted.

Disc playing on another computer help


It sounds like you need a firmware update but it may be too late now that Cyberhome is out of business. I suggest you buy a better unit but if you have some unfinalized or unreadable discs you want to try and recover I have instructions on how to do that on a PC that may be of help. www.drx9000repair.netfirms.com/
