Question about Audio Players & Recorders

2 Answers

I have a Panasonic DVD recorder which is approx 4-5 years old (model EM 10 ?). The machine will play original DVD's but will not play copied DVD's or CD's (even copied DVD's using the recorder itself). The DVD player makes funny noises whilst trying to read the disk and takes several minutes. Is this enough information to help with the problem?

It's needs to clean from the dirt and dust accumulated that causing to jump dvd / cd disc that produce funy noises and ,scrathy like noise,The slider mechanism, depending on the age of the unit and,consists of the small chrome rail, a drive motor, a small gear assembly, and (in some units) a small belt that drives the slider unit via the motor. This small belt causes all sorts of problems. If the belt is broken or slipping, it can cause skipping, dropouts, or simply no start up at all. Also, if the belt breaks in the middle of the disc, the drive mechanism gets hair or dirt wrapped up into the gears, or the pick-up assembly doesn’t return to the start position (called home), the unit will (99% of the time) refuse to release the disc, causing it to become stuck inside the unit. There’s a little micro or leaf type switch located at home position that sometimes gets dirty or breaks and, causing this problem also.

This player had problems playing copied discsfrom other machines but should play its own.Have you been finalizeing the discs? if not do this when you record a disc,also try useing cheap dvds.Lastly if the player is still makeing funny noises it may need a new dvd drive.

hope this helps.

I have a CD made from a record about 10 years ago. Has been kept in case in my lounge, no moisture, no scratches but now it will not play in any machine I can find of will not play or even recognise disc...


The format you originally made disc with is nearly obsolete. I have same issue with newer discs in older CD player in an older BMW. You might try to copy it on a MAC/Apple computer and then convert to MP3 or MP4 - OR check locally with CD duplicators some have older converters.

My dvd player will not play normal dvd movies, everytime go to put a dvd in to play the machine spits it out, not sure if it is in record mode or not, any clues as to how I resolve this


The set is not accepting the data on initial scan and is rejecting.
Can be that the DVD process boarrd is faulty, Th optical head is faulty, the drive mechanism is faulty in not loading fully.
Try to load original types, if this works then a region settting must be done on some models to allow playing all types of modes
Need to check this out.

RCA Model RT2500/RT2500R Audio/video Reciever Approx. 9 years old. Takes approx. 4-5 minutes to warm up. then works great. Seems to keep taking longer. Anything I can Do?


It may be only some tired capacitors in the power supply; they can cause this kind of problem.
Parts are probably the lesser cost; you will need a tech with a little bit of gear to find the culprits.

Connection/configuration issue: I have a Denon


Just confirming my understanding of your connections :

1). The DVD1800BD output HDMI is connected to AVR3808's DVD-in HDMI.
2). The DVD/VHS recorder output HDMI is connected to AVR3808's DVR-in HDMI.
3). The DVD/VHS recorder input (S-video and L/R Audio) is connected to AVR3808's DVR-out(SVideo and L/R Audio).
Right?

What other inputs have been connect to your AVR3808?
Does the recorder have Component Video inputs?

Please also connect DVD1800BD's output(Component video, S-Video and L/R Audio) to AVR3808s' DVD-in similar inputs and try recording onto your recorder.


Actually, its possible that you may be having a HDMI HDCP communication issue(High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) with the source product (DVD1800BD). First check with the source equipment manufacturer for any updates to their products.

If HDMI video is not passing through your AVR3808, you can connect it thru the alternate connection method I have mentioned above.

If the connections/recording still does not happen with the added anolog cables, then let me know , we can trouble shoot it further.
I hope the above helps.

Please do rate this solution and thanks for using FixYa!

DVD player and receiver will not play a dvd in surround sound ?


The dvd player is responsible for reading the surround sound track, and sending it to the receiver. First make sure you are playing the surround sound track on the dvd, many have a stereo track too. Next, try another dvd and see if you can play surround sound on that one. If you can't play surround on ANY dvd I would start looking at the audio connection from dvd to receiver. Are you using an optical cable? Red, white, and yellow RCA cables? Optical will transmit any sound over only one cable, RCA cables need one cable for each channel (LF, C, RF, LR, RR, sub.) If your connections are correct, is the receiver set to play a surround sound track? Is it set in 2 channel mode?

LG DR6921W DVD Recorder. Unit will not recognise DVD discs (Blank or commercially recorded)but will recognise and play audio CD's. Unit is 3 years old.


That is most common problem of DVD player recorder,when getting old cannot read DVD discs,only video cd and audio cd,sometimes does'nt read video cd also. The problem is in inside of the unit the DVD processor is defected already or maybe the solder is crack, need to resolder again or reheat the processor solder, or that processor change with a new one,so the performance will back again,good as new.The lense of that unit is good,i can assure that.
