There is no much you can do, if it happens after a while it can be a overheating problem

    To find out if it is overheating a repairman can run the dvd with cover open and a fan blowing on it. If it stays on it is the termic sensor or a wizard repaiman can add a more powerful fan.
    Other possible cause is a bad firmware, in this case you will have to send it to sharp as firmware upgrade is not available for users.
    Check if it is under guaranty, if you had it replaced get a new one, sometimes retailers get lots with more than one machine with same fault.
    Get it replaced.

Is it possible to record digital 8 material from my Sony DCR-TRV 145E on my Toshiba DVR 20KB? Thank you in anticipation


Well, yes, at the basic standard of the output on Composite connector leads (3 line, ID on plugs: Yellow for video, white for Left channel of audio and red for right) but the digital signal has been converted to analogue, sent over this cable and converted backto digital in the recorder.
Some quality loss but very slight.
Even less loss if you use separate 'S' (or Y/C) connector cable for video signal only and another twin cable again for audio.
Thats still a D-A-D conversion process.
If a DV connector is on your camera and recorder you'll unconverted video & audio over one cable which will be really crisp.
If the connectors are there a recorder will accept signal from anything.

Hi, I have a Samsung HR720 DVD-TV recorder and since we have gone digital the quality of the picture recorded is blurry. I have checked the back of the recorder and it doesn't appear to be any option...


Hi, Check the settings in the TV menu. Set the sharpness abit higher. Also if you have already you need a set top box (PVR) to view digital signal and to record it as well. Good luck.

In February, someone asked: "When


What are the tapes that you are trying to copy? are there genuine copies of films? YES THEY COULD BE COPY PROTECTED how they do that? simple they record the tape with the most minimum srength of signal, if you try to copy it you lose signal strength trough the copy process than the video looks a bit scrambled/discoloured and the sound is bad, if it's the case you could buy a video signal booster (if still available in stores) than you have to copy with a VCR that is separated from the DVD recorder so that you can install the booster from the output of the VCR to the input of the DVD recorder.

Hope it helps!

I have a Philips DVDR 3575H. using Comcast's


Try this set up-

Use an RCA audio/video cable for this set up (Yellow/Red/White).

Connect from the Video out (Yellow) connection on the back of the cable box to the Video in on the back of the DVR.

Connect the audio (Red/White) cables from audio out connection on the back of the cable box to the "Audio in" on the back of the DVR.

This should still get you a decent picture but not a true HD picture for your recordings.

When you set the timer to record set it to record either E1 or E2 depending on which input you connected the cable box to and ensure that the cable box is tuned to the channel you wish to record.

*** NOTE: If you keep the HDMI cable connected as you have for the cable box and watch normal TV through the HDMI input on the TV you will get HD programming for your general viewing but still have the option to record with the DVR at a lower quality. ***

Good Luck and please rate this solution....

How do i tune my sharp dv-rw360h recorder combi to the digital signal


If your DVD recorder has a built in digital box, all you need to do is a channel scan or auto-search and it will pickup any digital channels in your area. But your DVD recorder needs to be equippd with a built in digital settop box for this to work. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Unable to receive signal through my Comcast box, but signal is fine from the cable???


It turns out that the DVR has to be on channel 3, and the channels are controlled by the cable box! I somehow had missed that part. With the DVR on channel 3 and the channel being changed through the cable box it is very awkward to try and do any recording unless it happens to be what you are watching, so I have basically given up the whole idea and am planning to return my cable box an go back to basic.

Have sound but no picture


I would check the connections to make sure they are good. The video connection could have gotten knocked loose. Sometimes they just come loose.

I have a weird problem with my Pionreer DVR-420HS DVD Player. Whenever I'm watching a DVD or a programme recorded on the hard disk for some reason it switches back to the tv yet the dvd is still playing. ...


If you have connected the DVD to the TV with a scart lead, the lead could be slightly loose. In this case push all the scart leads in firmly.

Pin 8 of the lead carries a switching signal. When the DVD is powered on it tells the TV to switch to that input. If the switching signal is lost the TV will switch back.

Tunner? Picture whites out


Is this when you are watching a DVD, or Tape, or when watching TV using the Combo's tuner? The effect you describe is caused by the video signal losing its DC level.
Hope Ya Fix it.
