Question about Sony RDR-HX900 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Dvd recorder won't play or record to disc

In the solution that was sent-- I removed the cover of my DVR and could not find any easy access to the lens. I also could not spot the lens through the disc-loader. I'm trying not to hurt this so I'm moving carefully. How do I get to the lens and is there any way you can show me what it looks like?

In some types of players it is very difficult to access the lens.

What you can do is buy a CD or DVD cleaning kit. This will be a specialy made disk that you insert in to the drive. Then you follow the instruction about how to use it.

Go to any store that sells audio equipment for information about these types of products.

How to record dvd in ordinary format?


I will presume it plays back fine on your dvd recorder.
In this case, you need to "finalize disc" for it to be playable on other dvd players.

Also, possibly, If you are using a dvd-ram disc, you must make sure that the dvd-player you are trying to use even supports dvd-ram. Most will NOT.

Also, Make sure you are not recording in VR mode. Only some very new dvd-players will support VR mode discs.

Pionner DVR-540H-S no longer plays DVD's


little,

good day, true it's not advisable to use disc cleaner for it may also damage or scracth the optic lens inside.Possibly the optic lens of your player is either dirty caust by dust or faulty. but let's do hope it's only dust related and the only thing you can do now is to open and unscrew the upper cover of your player. Get a soft cotton buds, after dismantling the upper cover locate the optic drive lens and clean the lens by wipping it gently in circular direction. then try to play some DVD.

cheers,
mark

Dvd recorder can't read disc it previously read


Take the Disc out and put it aside. You must clean the Laser Eye, and clean dust and other matter from inside your recorder. Clean Eye with rubbibg alcohol and q-tip. A regular CD/DVD cleaner disc will not work. After cleaning, reinsert your Disc and Finalize it.

What format are you recording in?If the recorder is set for DVD +R, and your playback machine won't read the disc, you may need to record on a DVD-R, or a DVD +-R. Or vice-versa. Some DVDRW discs will record on one machine and won't play on another. The media are incompatible. Another problem - if you are copying a copy-protected disc, it might not play back either. Are you sure you are finalizing the disc? This process takes 4-5 minutes and requires two or three responses sometime.

You might try taking the cover off and then VERY GENTLY use a q-tip swab to brush off the laser lens. Sometimes a little dust or dirt is enough to keep it from detecting the disc.

Dvd player will not play back after recording , says unknown data or empty disc


The dvd player is not actually recording to the disc. It first records to a "hard drive" on the DVR. when the recording is complete, the user must request that the DVR downloads the recording to the disc. Since I do not know your brand and model # I cannot really instruct you further.
