Are you trying to play DVD+R's? I have the same trouble. It only like DVD-R's and it is picky about which companies DVD's they are also. Don't use generic ones, I guarantee the failure rate will make the money you saved buying them go away quickly.

if it uses a SATA hdd it maybe the drive is faulty & is now not booting at all. most will take a normal pc SATA hdd but check what the max size your unit can take as they have there own format & you may make the drive un-usable in a pc again. i would say get a second hand 160 - 250GB drive and try it out. as they are cheap 2nd hand.

Self check


Please be a bit more specific if you can. In what way is it repeating itself? And once it comes on does it stay on? It could be a component faulty on the power supply side.

Cannot start dubbing


I'd guess you are using cable TV-some cable companies put their own copyguard on the cable signal, Comcast, in my area does this. The DVD sees the 'do not copy signal' and won't do it.
Try recording directly to DVD without using the HDD drive. If you get a playable disk, I doubt it is your machine. If you don't get a playable disk, that plays in THAT machine-it is the machine..

DVD player isn't loading and playing properly


Since it will play eventualy, I'd suspect a dirty lens. Open up the unit and carefully clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Also, try a music CD. If the CD works flawlessly but DVDs still fail occasssionally, the optics are starting to fail and will need to be replaced.

DVD Burner will not read disks.


Hi ****,

I've one of these machines too, and you've stumbled upon the one flaw that lets the machine down. In my experience the only way to solve this is to:
1/ Eject the DVD
2/ Turn the machine off (standby mode)
3/ Unplug from the wall for at least a minute or 2
4/ Reconnect the machine, leave it at least a minute in standby mode.
5/ Attempt to play a known 'good' (commercial) DVD

This usually works although I have occasionally had to repeat the process. Hope this helps, regards,

Plays for a minute or two - then just shuts itself off


Mine will intermittently record only the first minute or two of a tv show I have queued up to regularly record. It seems to happen anywhere from every show to every 5-10.

Hdd error


try replacing the red sata cable which runs from the HDD under the DVD drive to the main board on the right-hand side. these are a common problem on these models, there cheap and unreliable. you can purchase a better quality cable from a computer store for little money. HDD ERROR is'nt necessery an HDD fault as i found out with my rdr-hx525. if however the HDD is faulty and you buy a replacement, once installed you will need to pair the new HDD with the unit by entering the service mode by unplugging the AC then while holding down open/close and play together then re-insert the AC lead while still holding open/close and play and wait until you see an "S" in the display then let go and the service mode will appear on the tv screen. go to no.9 HDD mode, press enter then go to no.3 Write ID then it will say "execute write ID?" yes and press enter and then it will say "writing HDD serial ID.... OK" once this is done, exit the service mode by keeping your finger on the power button for approx 10secs. your DVD recorder should now recognise the new HDD. if you don't follow this process, you will still have an HDD error message as your DVD recorder will have your old HDD installed and won't recognise your new one. given the amount of time since you posted this fault, you may still have the unit in question in which case i hope this solution is helpful, or for anyone else with the same problem.
