DVD Recorder Product is very slow in responding to buttons pushed and sometimes freezes. When I am in the Navigation Menu, I am having problems after I select the file to play it takes 2 to 3 mins for the file to play and I can't fast forward also when I shut down it says Please wait until the next morning and then I have to pull the plug. Please help. Basically the unit is very slow in responding.

During MY long, intensive, painful research concerning the EXACT same problems, I've discovered that in ONE circumstance, these problems are caused whenever the recorder has INPUT (COAX, AV, etc), from a CABLE box!!!! Assuming the controls haven't already frozen, I disconnected the CABLE box from the recorder, and the recorder "came back to life!!!" And this, after bring my recorder in for "repair", THREE TIMES!!! Now, the only thing to resolve is: how to connect the CABLE BOX to the recorder--WITHOUT using any of the recorder's input jacks!!!! Progress, right?

Dvdr tray

You have one of the following problems:
  • The device freezes and does not react anymore to the remote control commands.
  • The DVD is stuck in the tray. Sometimes the message BLOCKED appears.
  • A feature is not available in the menu without any logical reason.
  • A feature of the device does not work (for example start install).
  • There is some problem with the device you cannot solve.

Reset the DVD recorder.
  1. Unplug the mains cord from the mains wall outlet.
  2. Press the POWER/ON button on the DVD recorder itself.
  3. While keeping the POWER/ON button pressed connect the main power cord to the wall outlet again. A message IS TV ON? or a demo message will appear in the display.
  4. Start the first installation process.

Notes:
    1. The settings of the DVD recorder will return to their default settings. Install the DVD recorder as if it came out of the box.
    2. The data on the hard disc will not be affected.

Freezes up while operating

I have found that my aiptek digital camcorder also freezes like this sometimes after I have pressed the button to stop recording a movie. You are right that sometimes you must remove the battery to unfreeze it, but I have found a couple of other tricks that work sometimes.

1. You can hold down the menu button for a few seconds (like 6). Sometimes this kicks it into the menu and unfreezes it.

2. Sometimes using the power button inside of where the screen stores to turn it on and then off again often helps.

3. Popping the digital card out (push in so it unlocks, then push it right back in) also helps unfreeze it for me.

If those don't work, pop the battery out again.

I do find that every few months I need to clean the connection points on both my battery and the camera where the battery clicks in. After I do this it behaves much better for a couple months. Good luck.

Nav system

Installing the DVD Map Disc Your dealer/retailer may have installed the map DVD. If the map DVD was not installed, do the following to load it:
Read the following steps completely.
  1. Turn the ignition on. The vehicle must be in P (Park) to perform this operation.
  2. Press (power) to turn the navigation system on.
  3. Press the NAV hard key.
  4. Touch the Insert Map Disc screen button. The screen opens to access the map DVD slot.
  5. Load the map DVD partway into the slot. The system pulls it in. The screen cannot be closed until a double beep is heard.
    Notice: Pressing directly on the navigation screen may cause damage. Repairs would not be covered by the vehicle's warranty. Do not press directly on the navigation screen.
  6. To close the screen, slightly push up on the two outer corners until the screen is in position. Then push the screen in by pushing on the four outer corners until a click is heard.
  7. Set the search area. See "Setting the Search Area" earlier in this section.
Ejecting the DVD Map Disc The navigation portion of the system cannot be used if the DVD map disc is not loaded.
  1. Press the MENU key to enter the Menu options, then press the MENU key repeatedly until Nav is selected or touch the Nav screen button.
  2. Touch the Map Database Information screen button.
  3. Touch the Eject Map Disc screen button. The screen tilts, exposing the map DVD slot.
  4. Press the eject button, located next to the DVD map disc slot, and the disc ejects. Pull the disc out. The screen cannot be closed until a double beep is heard.
    Notice: Pressing directly on the navigation screen may cause damage. Repairs would not be covered by the vehicle's warranty. Do not press directly on the navigation screen.
  5. To close the screen, slightly push up on the two outer corners until the screen is in position. Then push the screen in by pushing on the four outer corners until a click is heard.

Remote control "enter" will not respond in DVD mode

I had the same problem. Powering down and rebooting (unplugging) the recorder fixed the problem.

Set 1

Had this same problem and found the solution elsewhere on the net. Hold down the "1" button and the "Enter" button for aprox 10 seconds while pointing at the player. This "resets" the remote. I was skeptical when I first read this solution but it worked for me!

Toshiba DVD recorder problem

Generally, this problem is caused by bad sectors or other problems on the hard drive and can be resolved by going into the setup menu and re-formatting the hard drive. Of course, all recordings on the hard drive will be erased, so spin them off to dvd first. Be sure to have unplugged and replugged the unit immediately prior to going into the setup menu (don't try to record anything). If this doesn't work, no-one will repair this unit locally, as it must be returned to Toshiba's(TACP) depot for repair. Best of luck.
