Humax DRT400 Tivo won't burn content to DVDs

This machine burned plenty of things in the first two years, but now I keep getting error messages that say "saving failed due to an internal error". I've tried rebooting a dozen times, using different DVDs, etc but still it doesn't work.

Does anyone have any experience with this error message?

My solution is going to require entering the unit, so you may want a qualified service tech to perform the job, but i would check the connection between the burner and the board.

    Any chance I could get more detail about how to enter the unit and where to find this connection between the burner and the board?

Why will the volume on my remote control for my tivo box not work when everything else does


Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check it by pressing all the keys. You can detect the presence of infra-red emission from the remote control, using a cell-phone camera. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. In some cases, the remote control might need to clean.

It is 3 years old it blinks 5 times


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices...

TV turns on fine but turns off in 5 to 10 mins


Yes, this normal, by the lack of detail shown in your question. Once you press any key it should come back on unless it is set to turn it self off while in sleep mode. This is to protect the display from creating burn in setting.

You have entered a diagnostic colour test. With the TV powered on, hold the 'Menu' & 'Enter' together, then press the power button. Problem resolved
