If you have changed the pin from factory settings, then you need to reset to factory settings. Usually if you can factory reset it, the pin will be 0000 or 1234.

SOURCE: Can't record from hdd to recordable dvd

Had the same problem on my 6month old 3440H, its the degradation of the cheap Asatech Chinese DVD drive that is the source of the problem. . My 3440H HDD to DVD transfer sequentially degraded, It stopped recording DVD+ and -R's then on RW's it sometimes performed and some not.I gave up using cheap DVD's then with higher quality disks  it would frequently report task completed but then would not plaback or freeze in the way you describe. I bought the DVDR from the CO-OP Xmas 2006. Co-op no longer support electricals so when it went wrong Co-op gave me a service centre to take it to. Long story short Philips dont recognise the service centre and they declared my warrany void. Tried to re-engage with Philips but they basically were not interested in supporting their product..  
Not an elegant fix but since Phillips were useless,  I opened the box nothing ....to lose ..I now run it on a bare external Sony DVD drive using extended ribbon and power cables as its a bit tricky to find space in the box to mount the drive.
Regards
Murray

SOURCE: Recording problem with LG RH266 Recorder..

Just bought unit. Had same problem.Tried lots of different types of disks with no luck. Tried to play already written +R disk. Worked OK. Then took out and replaced with blank -R. Came up with new screen asking me if I wanted to initialize disk. Answered yes and it took about 20 seconds. Then tried to DUB from HDD to DVD again. This time it came up with the dubbing menu, I hadn't seen before, and worked.
Hardly ideal, but the trick was to get it to recognise it as a blank and initialize. Currently burning my first disk. Didnt realise about 'FAST' mode, so taking ages.

This is a disc read problem the discs recommended in the manual seem to be the only discs that will work on this machine.
I was getting the same error code everytime but the disc that i know does work is a Verbatim 16X DVD-R.
These discs work in all situations on my machine , dubbing and direct from TV.

I have a samsung bluray dvd player/recorderBD-HDD Combo, when I want to record a t.v. programme It says it is full, how do I delete all the recorded programmes to make room for more?

The delete feature isn't well explained but it is in the E-manual for the BD-H8900M on page 89. You'll find Delete file or Partial Delete File options in the Options menu from the Play-back screen or the list of Recorded TV. To see the list of recorded programs, press List at the bottom of the remote. Alternatively, press the Home button on the remote (above the up arrow). Then select Recorded TV and press the Enter/Select button in the center of the arrow keys. Look for the Options icon (a square with a line going from the center of the square through the upper right hand corner). You may have to highlight a file. Press the Select key. Go through the menu for the Delete command and press Select. You will be prompted to confirm the choice.

The User Manual for this Samsung Blu-ray player with Freeview Recorder is available from the product support page: https://www.samsung.com/uk/support/model/BD-H8900M/XU/ . The direct link showed as http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201501/20150116094738990/H8500_H8900_ENG-1103-1-0507_BM.pdf in my browser history.

I hope this helps. If you have a different Samsung Blu-ray player with HDD recorder, please add a comment with the model number.

How do i change the pin entry on my panasonic hdd recorder,its second hand

Factory reset on many Panasonics is to hold down Channel Up and Channel Down buttons at the same time, for over 5 seconds.

That should clear any PIN entries as well as resetting everything else.

I have a Sagem recorder DTR6400T/6700T a number have faults have occurred....can't record,states HDD has reached its recording capacity but only used 5%.......when deleting,comes up with "error during

One way around it would be to reformat the hard drive. If it has that option. However you would delete any recordings on the drive.
There could be read errors on the drive too, which might be cured by clearing everything off.
Does the drive have a fault or status check? If it does try that first.

Problems recording on LG RHT49H HDD

There may be plenty of space in the HDD but you can only set a certain number of timers. Delete a less important timer setting to make room.

How to reset the pin for Panasonic DMR-HW120EBK 500GB HDD Recorder with Twin Freeview +HD Tuners (2012)

This is the definitive answer from Panasonic Customer Services. It worked for me.

In response to your enquiry, I am writing to inform you that you can reset the PIN number to the default 0000 and then change it, based on your preference. In order to reset the PIN, please follow the next steps:
1. Switch ON the unit;
2. Press and hold the OK, YELLOW and BLUE buttons, at the same time, until you see 00 RET displayed on the unit;
3. Press, repeatedly, the RIGHT ARROW buton until you see 03 VL;
4. Press OK and you should see "INIT" displayed on the unit.
This will reset the PIN number to the 0000 factory preset.
Furthermore, you should also be able to remove the message that is asking you for the child lock PIN while attempting to play back a recording. In order to do this, please follow the next steps:
1. Press SETUP;
2. Choose HDD/USB HDD;
3. Select CHILD LOCK FOR PLAYBACK;
4. Input the default 0000 code;
5. Switch it to OFF.
After performing these steps, the recorder should no longer ask you for the PIN when trying to playback a recording.
I trust that the above information will be of assistance to you. However, of course, if you should have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Kind Regards,
George

All saved recordings have disappeared from menu. system has reset itself and now all recording in the HDD play menu have disapperaed. They must still be on the HDD because nothing else has been...

dissambling and taking the hard drive out of the dvr will most likely void the warrenty how it is possible.

once the hard drive is removed you may be able to plug it into your PC and gain access to the files on the hard drive. These how ever may be specially encoded and protected files that you cant open.

-you PVR may have also done a hard reset and formatted the hard drive. This would delete all the files on the PVR.

-unlike tapes, erasing a hard drive does not require you to record over it. just because nothing else has been recorded does not mean your data is still there. sorry.

Sounds like the hard disk might be full. How many recordings have you got on the machine? You say it won't allow you to delete "data". Have you protected the recordings?
