20 Most Recent Toshiba DVR620 DVD Recorder/VCR Questions & Answers

I had the very same problem and it was an easy fix. Remove the top cover and you will see a clear plastic post with an extension over a black plastic gear with two cutouts. This senses tape movement. Remove the clear plastic post which is held on by one screw. On the printed circuit board below where the clear post was you will see an infra red led. clean the led and the clear plastic and reassemble. That should fix the problem. Good luck

You need to FINALIZE the DVD-R you recorded in that unit for it to be playable on other DVD players. This function should be part of the on-screen menu for your unit. (in Panasonic DVD recorders, it's under DVD MANAGEMENT in the FUNCTIONS menu).

If the disc you recorded is already loaded, but stopped, press SETUP on your remote - an on screen menu should appear.

Using the UP/DOWN arrow keys, select DVD MENU and press ENTER. Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys again to select FINALIZE and press ENTER.

A message box will popup 'Finalize disc?' use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to select YES then press ENTER. Finalizing should start and may take a while to complete.

Once complete, the disc is now playable on other DVD players. (from page 32 of the owners manual with the heading 'PLAYING THE DISCS IN OTHER DVD PLAYERS')

Parts like you're needing are nearly impossible to find. More than likely the same thing happened to yours as the one I have in my shop. Sometimes during power surges, spikes, and lightening strikes, things get damaged. I found in the 2 units I have worked on, one, it was as simple as a blown fuse, which if that is what happened to yours, it's an easy fix and should not cost more than $40 to repair. Or, if you're savvy on fixing things, about a $5 250V fuse is all you need and about 30 minutes time.
In the case of the second DVR it had bypassed the fuse, and the fuse was fine, but wiped out the transformer on the power supply. In my case I can not find part 08046871041 which is just the transformer to repair the power supply, nor can I find part 08246871060 which is the complete power supply. Good luck search, if you get lucky and find one please let me know where I can find it at, I have also researched for replacement parts that would work with no luck.

Using a DVD-RW disk, try ALL different recording settings even if they don't seem probable and record a sample. If output is correct with all BUT the HDMI-cable, go through ALL picture format settings on the TV when a HDMI-cable is used. Different discs and HDMI cables don't have anything to do with this. I'm still chewing on this...

The flying head is dirty. Open the unit and clean it with isopropylic alcohol or similar with a smooth cloth like the same used to glass clean.

Basic troubleshooting: When nothing happens, no screen, no response from the unit suspect the power source. Is the outlet live? Check it with a test light or some other appliance? Try another outlet. Is the other end of the cord plugged into the unit. Does the DVD door open and close?
