I have a yamaha s510 dvd player which stopped working. Afetr loading a burnt disc (tdk dvd+r 16x) the dvd loaded okay, went to menu, then when I pressed play the tv screen flashed a few times then my player shut off. I could not get the player to power on again, but I could hear it trying to spin off and on. I unplugged it and let it rest for an hour then tried it again--still no power--I left it plugged in and about an hour later the dvd ejected and the message "DLA ERROR" was on the dvd message window. The unit still will not power on properly, although by playing with the buttons I can get a series of ------- to appear in the window. I've tried searching for what a "DLA" error is but have had no luck--is this a power supply problem or did the burnt disc cause this ( I've played many burnt discs before with no problem-- but this was first time using tdk brand). Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Any brand name DVD disc like TDK,Memorex or RCA extra..as long it is 8X or 16X DVD+R format for one time recording only.Or DVD+RW u will able to Re record over the old data's was in the DVD disc earlier only.
just for clarification you are saying when a DVD disk is in tray (closed) the screen shows can not play? .... what brand (disk) are you using....... try Maxell, TDK, Memorex or even Dynex brand.... you must also look at the speed (8x - 16x)... your device is okay for DVD+/- R & RW
Can your device show a pre-recorded DVD (store purchased)...... if not this may be a defected device
Below is a list of discs that should or should not be used with the DVD recorders.
4x can be used
8x will result in a disc error.
2x can be used
4x will result in a disc error.
The following discs have been tested and are proven to be compatible with our DVD recorders.
IMATION DVD-R 2.0
TDK DVD-RW 2X
TDK DVD-R 2X
The following are brands of discs we DO NOT recommend:
TDK DVD-RW 4x
TDK DVD-R 4x
Please be aware that a free software upgrade is now available to customers. This upgrade will enable your unit to recognize the (DVD-R 8x) discs. To obtain a copy, please call 1-800-242-7158. Customer service by phone is available 7 days a week 6:00am to 9:00pm pacific time.
In order to receive the upgrade we need to know what firmware version your unit requires. First you need to access the DVD recorders service mode. Turn on the DVD Recorder and the Television, make sure the unit is on the DVD side. You may access the service mode by pressing the CMSKIP button on the remote control. Once you press CMSKIP you must press the numbers 1,2,3. You must do this quickly so it may take a couple tries. The model name will appear on the screen followed by Firmware Version. I need to know the serial number next to FE: Press the RETURN button to exit screen.

this guy "mysus" is a genius! I have had above problem on a Samsung HR-725 (160 Gb Version of the HR-720) now for approx. 1 year. I´ve called the Samsung Hotline and tried other dealers - nothing worked. Today I came accross this help and tried it out immediately - and it works perfectly. However, you do need to know a little about PCBs and electronics.
I used a variety of different -R DVDs and they all seem to work now. Many thanks once again for this fantastic link.
Certain disc only work in certain recorders - I know this sound weird but you must find the disc that is compatible with the recorder that you are using. If the TDK discs is working continue to use the TDK discs. Even though the format and the specifications are the same on both disc, the readers does not read all disc.
I have the same problem with some of the Discs I have burned. Most people say the power supply, but I have 2 of these units so I swapped the power supply to see if that was it. The problem stayed in the one machine, ruling out the power supply.
