DVD/Video recorder blinking

A few days ago I came home and my DVD video recorder was blinking. None of the buttons made it stop. I cannot open the DVD drawer. Pressing the on/off button does no good. I have unplugged the unit and left it off for a day but when I plug it in the blinking starts again.

    I have exactly the same problem. Mine is not under warranty. I unplugged it and let it sit...still doing it. It's 2 years old and I've never even gotten around to burning the VCR tapes I had intended. Hardly used it at all. Any idea how much it would cost to fix or is it smarter to scrap it?

This is an issue for this machine. It happened to me, and after some internet research, I found that JVC acknowleged it (on their web site). The unit was still under warranty, and JVC had me ship it to them for repair. It was fixed... for about a year. It started doing the same thing recently. I only had enough time to discover that I hadn't purchased any extended warranty, then the thing quit altogether. Wouldn't even power up, wouldn't eject the tape or DVD that were inside. I gave up, and took the case off to recover the tape and DVD. What I found inside was what looked like any DVD or CD drive from any computer. Since I had a case for an external IDE drive, I hooked it up to my Mac using that drive. Good news! Not only did it eject my DVD when I pushed the button, I found that my Mac with OS X Tiger recognized the drive! With absolutely NO software installation (not even a driver), My Mac now burns DVDs beautifully on that drive using Toast. At least I salvaged something really good from that piece of junk sold by JVC.

How are you? Good I hope. I recently purchased a Panasonic TH-P50U20A plasma and got a Soniq T500-AU HD Personal Video recorder for Christmas. I already had a Panasonic SC-PT470 DVD Home Theatre Sound...

I'm experiencing this lip synch problem with the T500 too. Not only that, but the soniq firmware upgrade (from their site) doesn't work either. And not only that, but the unit won't record from the EPG, and timer record looks like it is unreliable as well. The frimware file was on their site a few days ago, now I can't find it. They're promising a new website (URL?) soon. I'm none too impressed. Anyone got any ideas? Thanks.

Have a toshiba tp 61H95 proj TV- want to connect panasonic dvd recorder and toshiba vhs recorder so I can copy family videos to dvd- can't get hook ups set up for both to work.

Select AV-1 or some thing in TV and plug DVD recorder Video-Audio output in AV-1 input of TV, playback any DVD and confirm its picture and sound in TV. Press Stop button of DVD recorder to stop playback.
Now plug Video-Audio output of VCR in DVD recorder input and select AV Input in DVD recorder, insert VHS tape in VCR and playback it and confirm you get VHS picture and sound in TV via DVD recorder.
Hookup between TV, DVD recorder and VCR is completed.
Playback VHS tape in VCR, Insert blank DVD disc in DVD recorder and press Record while you see VHS tape picture in TV.
Hope this info will help you.
