DVR won't play

When I tried to play one of the shows I recorded on my dvr, the screen just went black, and when I try to fast forward or rewind it just stays in the same spot. It won't do either one. It says that 2 hrs. are recorded but it won't play. How can I fix this?

    hi I am having the same problem - have been recording shows but when played back the screen is blank and it does not rewind or pay forward. help

    I tried to watch recorded programming, but my screen is black. The counter reads 0:00, and I can't fast forward. When I exit to go back to live TV the screen remains black until I change the channel. I can't rewind live TV anymore, either. I'm going to try unplugging it for 30 seconds when I get home, but I'm afraid that the hard drive may be shot.

    My DVR does the exact same thing...anytime I try to play any recorded programs on my DVR, the screen turns black, won't fast forward, and when I exit, it stays black until I turn the channel. I also can't rewind live tv anymore either. I have the same DVR - the Motorola from Time Warner Cable.

    I started having the same problem this morning with a Motorola DCT3416 and read in a couple other forums that unplugging it for 30 seconds and then plugging it back in should solve the problem. I just tried it and it worked! Hopefully the same is true for all Motorola models. Good luck!

    I'm having the same issue with my DVR. Also, only my HD channels are working through the box (they all work if I don't use the box).
    I was having this problem for a few days, then it started working today, and then stopped working again tonight.

    I set all my recordings to "delete when space is needed"  and yet it fills up and i have to delete old programs 1 at a time.  Also, i tell it only to record new episodes, yet it records all repeats, even when the word "repeat" is in the program description.  Finally, i would say roughly half of my recording have no audio, or a solid length of programming with nothing bu white noise for audio....what's the deal?!

I hae a Motorola 6412 that had this problem. I turned it off, then unplugged it for 30 seconds. After turning it on I had to wait 1-2 minutes before I could acces the DVR, but it work now.

Woohoo!
I have been having the odd show get the "black screen" problem since we got our Motorola PVR and I assumed that I had done something wrong. Today all of our recordings wouldn't play so I came only for help.
So simple. I turned the power off for a few minutes and now everything works again. Almost looks like the system even got an update to it?
Thanks "Guest from Aug 19th"!

I taped a TV show. But I can't fast forward to see the end part that I want to watch. It just advances to the end.


I'm not surprised that it advances on the end. The VCR doesn't know where the end of the taped programme is. You will have to search manually for it. Start at the end of the tape and rewind a few minutes worth of recording then press 'play' and see what you get. If not successful rewind further and try again, etc,etc. Alternatively you could press "play +rewind" which should allow you to watch the record on what is fast (=x2) rewind. It will help you if you know how long the show was and at what point the tape was when recording started.

I do not know how to use it, i have the manual, but i do not find it


The recorder takes 2 AAA batteries. Press Menu/Folder (on the right above the jogdial (Stop, Rewind, Fast Forward, Play)) to select the folder to add a new recorded item. (The folders are A,B,C, or S. Folder S will come up with a date and you can select another date for the recording.) Folders A, B and C can hold 100 files each; Folder S has 365 dates which can hold 15 items each.

Press and hold the Menu/Folder button for a second or longer. The Screen should show the Mode menu. Press Play and then the Fast Forward and Rewind buttons to set the recording quality. HQ is the high quality recording and will fill up the available storage on the organizer more rapidly. LP will record for the longest period.

Set the Microphone sensitivity by pressing and holding Menu/Folder. Then press the Fast Forward or Rewind button until Mic appears on the display. Then press Play and use the Fast Forward or Rewind buttons to select Low or High sensitivity. (An external mic often gives better results.)

Once you have set the folder for the next recording and the recording quality and microphone sensitivity, press Rec (center above the jogdial) to start recording. Press Stop to end the recording or Rec to pause it. (It will stop if the Pause is longer than 10 minutes.) Press Display to see how much longer you can record before using up the available storage space.

To play back a record, locate the item in the folder then press Play.

Hi Jim,
I tried connecting my dvr via component and optical to see if it was my hdmi or my dvr. Ended up being a bad hdmi plug in back of my amp. I was fortunate enough to have both style connections on my dvr. Hope this helps

Dvr not working. Won't record, pause rewind


Try unplugging the unit from the electrical outlet for about five minutes- much longer than required- and try it again. If this fails you will need a service technician to resolve the issue. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Won`t Rewind


Do you still have the remote control? Try with the remote. If this works, the button of the camera is broken and have to be replace by a qualified technician. Good luck!
