    Just staring having the problem when I returned from vacation.  I returned on August 6th.  It seems the other person posted the problem July 30th.  I wonder if that is an coincidence.

    Ok - The main problem with these is that if you leave a disk in over night or more, it messes up the machine. So now mine does the please wait and then finally comes up to a screen that says error has occurred, press enter. The DMR unit shows a 1 on the screen. Or - it will pull up a screen that says change disk. There is no disk in it. At least once I could get it into the reboot mode but continued witht the same problem as it tried to boot. Any ideas without sending it in to be fixed which I was told would be a minimum of $1230.

    Exact same thing here. It has been running great for about 2.5 yrs, then just a couple weeks ago started coming up with the 'change disk' and 'an error has occurred' messages. The 2 caps ID'ed are bulging, but not busted. I will try the fix and see how it works.

    Thanks!

    I have the same problem with the Please Wait msg.

    I had setup to transfer some shows to DVD and left the disc in the unit overnight. Today its Please Wait even after I unplug the unit. I can't power off and I can't get it to reset.

    I have the same problem. Followed advice to check capacitors in power supply section - found the two mentioned had blown. Also another. Wonder if this is a design flaw and whether higher voltage capacitors should be used as replacements.

I had the same problem a few months ago - the fix was what gorickhoward mentioned. Two capacitors from radio shack and a $6 soldering kit made it better than new.

SOURCE: Message on machine constantly says "please wait". It will not turn off unless unplugged.

This machine has problems with the power supply board that can cause a continuous please wait on system check or please wait triggered by trying to dub to DVD-R. The first problem is likely to occur with the older power supply boards and the DVD dub problem on the later boards. The bad capacitor problem was on the earlier power supply boards. The following link is to the solution for this http://www.fixya.com/support/t216825-dvd_recorder_frozen_please_wait_display The later power boards have a voltage regulator problem and the fix for this is at http://www.rbjtech.net/electrical/e85/e85.htm#0 You will notice from the photos that the early and later boards look different so it's easy to see which one you have. I replaced the voltage regulator in my machine and it now works like new.

System Error


FYI...the best suggestion I've seen is to hold the channel up and play buttons simutaneously....thereby causing the machine to return to the "factory initialized" state. So far so good for me. We'll see. photog1
