Question about Panasonic DMR-E50 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

FINALIZING ISSUE I can't get the TITLE/FINALIZING screen to appear. When I stop the recording and it has been 'written to disk', I hit 'direct navigator' and change the title in the menu. Then I completely stop the recording and hit the 'direct navigator/top menu' button, again. When I do, it just plays the recording instead of giving me the finalizing option. Don't know how else to bring up the that screen. Tried the 'display' button but it's not there and nothing comes up when I hit the 'playlist/menu' button, either. Would sure appreciate whatever suggestions you can offer. THANKS!

    Thanks so much for the suggestion.



    However, my remote does not have a FUNCTIONS button!

    The 4 buttons around the center 'Enter" are 'DIRECT NAVIGATOR/TOP MENU' button (which take me to the chapters to either play or enter a title) " DISPLAY' button (which takes me to an audio/video settings list only), ' PLAYLIST/MENU' button (which takes me nowhere) and "RETURN" button (which takes me back a screen). No 'FUNCTIONS' one ;-(.



    I am, btw. using DVD-R disks which I've used many times before.



    Any idea???

On That Type Of DVD Recorder,( RW,R-R+). You Will Have To Finalize The Disk. Finalizing is Necessary When Playing On Any Equipment Other Than This Recorder.Even IF Your Other DVD Equipment IS ( VR ) Format Compatible You Still Need To Finalize The Disk. After Finalizing,You Cannot Edit or Record on The Disk,Make Sure It's In Video Mode.

Phili[s dvd3480 has stopped recording when finalizing only reaches 98% and stops please help


That last part is the actual finalizing - the writing of the track end data. That data is identical for all the disks and it should be copied from the data stored in the firmware.
If the finalizing fails it's because the firmware has been corrupted. This happened because there has been a fault in the processor of the recorder. All you can do is to do a firmware upgrade. You can find it here, with the instructions

My Toshiba DR430KU dvd recorder is not recording. I hit the record button, and the light comes on, saying that it is recording, but nothing gets recorded.


Hello

Secure the audio/video connection cables that attach the source device you are trying to record from. Try this step if you do not see a picture when trying to record from a source device onto the Device. After unplugging the cable and checking for any damage, plug the cables back and attempt to record the content to see if this resolved the problem.

Secure the power cable that attaches the device to an electrical source if the unit will not power on or if it intermittently loses power. If you think a malfunctioning surge protector may be at fault, you can 'bypass' the surge protector by plugging the device into an electrical outlet. Replace any surge protectors that appear to be malfunctioning and have an electrician examine any outlets that appear to be "dead."

Insert the disc that you would like to record

Press the "Edit Menu" button on the remote control while playing the disc or while playback is stopped.

Use the up and down arrows to select "DVD-Video Finalizing" in the on-screen menu, then press "Enter."

Under "Menu Create" select "None," then under "After play final title" select "Stop." Select "Next" to move to the next screen.

Select "Writing" in the lower right of the screen.

Select "Yes" or "No" to tell the machine if you want it to power down when finalizing is complete. Finalizing will then begin and a progress bar will appear.

Contact your electronics dealer or the Toshiba service department if the disc still does not finalize.

HOW DO YOU BURN A DVD ON A SONY DVD RECORDER RDR


Make sure your Sony input signal is on L1 or L3 (the inputs in back of recorder) or on L2 which is for inputs for cameras(located in front).Once you get a signal, you're where you need to be. Choose your recording mode for recording speed (pull down the flap on the remote control for this button and also the input button).
Choose from between1 hour and six hours. To archive really important stuff, stick with the first 3 speeds. TV recording can be on 3, 4 or 6 hour mode.
Push the record/pause button once. This will put the recorder into the record/pause mode and then it awaits you pushing it again to start recording immediately. Just pushing record will force the machine into a 3 to five second delay before actually recording anything so you might mess up and miss the first few seconds of your input. Suggest you use a dvr-rw or dvd+rw to practice on.

When your recording is done, just push the pause again. It stops recording but allows you to add more on to the first recording without starting a new chapter if you want. Just continue to release the pause button to continue.
If you are satisfied that you are finished, then push the pause button to stop recording. Wait for the info to be written(flashing message on screen). When it stops, you may play the dvd.
Notice- since the dvd has not been FINALIZED, you may only play it back on this unit without finalizing. It will not play on other dvd players unless you finalize it first.
To finalize, look on remote for the TOOL button. Press it once. Now push DISC INFO once. Use arrow keys and enter button on remote for the following. Scroll down to FINALIZE and press enter.
Use arrow keys to scroll to OK. push the ENTER button. Finalizing should take between 30 seconds and 2 minutes.

Warning- if titles or chapters are to typed in, it must be done BEFORE finalizing. Finalizing afterwards cannot be done.
Erasing can be done in part or all if using an RW+ or RW- disc

Recording problem


I have had two of these recorders, Using only Sony + discs or rewriteables is my solution, I will not use any thing else. It may work 1-3 times on others brands then start throwing coasters.
As to renaming, on my model I pull up the tiltle menu then select Try using rewriteables for the other problem as well My model is a little older and lets me take disc out without finalizing then when inserting select title, hit edit on remote and select rename. Maybe if you can skip the finalizing (as with rewritables it will help

Problem dubbing from VHS to DVD


Try different brands of disk, most dvd-r recorder are disk sensitive, buy only one disk per brand, find the brand compatible to your recorder by just inserting the disk and wait for confirmation that it is ready for recording session. I have tried around five brands, sony and maxell as well as verbatim are good dvd-r disk.
