Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

1 Answer

Hi, Have just purchased Samsung DVD HDD recorder (DVD-SH855). Everything works great except the timer recording. When i schedule a recording, the system wont start recording. The recording light flashes at the scheduled start time. Instructions say check the date & time or the disk is full. I've double checked the date and disk has 421hours of recording left. Any suggestions?

I had the same issue. It turns out that the recorder has to be switched off otherwise it won't record. The unit will power itself on at the scheduled time and record your program. It doesn't make any sense to me why this would be a requirement but it solved the problem for me.

Cannot view tv program while recording on VCR


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls set the Samsung LCD TV to the Source selection as if watching a playback evgen if you are going to do a recording.

If that does not work, pls postback manner of connection (cabling) from Cox digital cable system to Philips DVD/VCR to Samsung LCD TV LN-T3253HX/XAA .

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Samsung DVD SH853M Freeview/HDD/DVR. Recorded list - cannot access


The Manual fro this machine is typically vague on the minutae of setting up and performing various functions.

Apparantly the 'standby button' on the handset should be in the 'off' position not the 'on'.

The logic of the layman can seee it as the opposite. This does work..... and thank you for your patience.

SAMSUNG HR733 DVD RECORDER WILL NOT PLAY ANY REGION DISCS AT ALL


On page 45 of the user manual it says this:

Both the HDD & DVD RECORDER and the discs are coded
by region. These regional codes must match in order for the
disc to play. If the codes do not match, the disc will not play.
The Region Number for this HDD & DVD RECORDER is
described on the rear panel of the HDD & DVD RECORDER

If you changed the region codes on your player it will not work. They should be set back to 1 or whatever your model says on the back of the unit.

If this unit was purchased outside the United States, it may not work in the United States.

Here is a copy of the manual if you need it:

Programmed recording to the hard drive


Either You haven't set the time/timer correctly or you need to find a way to clear/format the hard disk.
