Question about Emerson EWR20V4 DVD Recorder/VCR
I have an Emerson DVD/VCR Recorder Combo EWR20V5 that I had used for several months not realizing there was a problem. I usually watch the movies I record and then label and put the disc away for watching again another time. Last week I recorded one that I did not have the time to watch. When I went to watch it, it played for about 27 minutes and then froze. It would not play, rewind, or fast forward. Then only button that would work was stop. I ejected it and tried again and it did the same thing. I tried some of the other discs I had made and they all did the same thing, although they froze at different times; each within a 25 to 40 minute time period of play. I use the -R 8x discs that are to be used with this machine according to the manual and followed the directions exactly. They recorded to disc perfectly according to the screen, titled perfectly and finalized perfectly. They just won't play all the way through. What could be the problem?
Sometimes this unit gets "confused" - not sure why -- but try first using a CD cleaning disk and let it start and stop a couple times (sometimes lens gets dirty and does this) - if that doesn't help then try unplugging unit and leave unplugged (from wall socket) for about 30min then plug in, set local time and then see if the disks play okay - sometimes this "resets system"
