Question about Insignia IS-DVD1001 DVD Recorder/VCR
After I tried to play a dual layer (recorder on my computer), I got unknown disc. Then every disc I tried to play including dvd rentals I got unknown disc, please check disc. I tried to use dvd cleaaner but it won't read or play disc. Please tell how I can fix this. Because prior to playing dual layer disc, my dvd player/recorder worked fine.
This just worked for me. Don't know how long it will last though. I found it on this webpage
To do a reset:
On the remote control press the SETUP button,
Press the right key on the remote 3 times,
The Preference page will show up,
Press the down arrow five time to highlight
"default", hit right arrow to highlight "reset"
Press enter to reset. Turn off/on machine, etc.

For 18 months i've been **** at Best Buy for what I thought was a piece of junk. Then I read the TIPS&TRICKS posting by BobbyR1234. Follow his instructions but add 3B. Theres a black plastic plate blocking access. Remove the 2 Phillips screws and release the plactic clip on each side. Clean as instructed. A tip-off to this being your problem: try playing a music disk. The music will play and data will show but of course there will be no video therefore the disk will work. Thanks bobby!!!!

I don't see a "SETUP" button on my remote control, is there another button to use for this? I would like to try this solution if possible as I have 2 of these units and they are both useless now (I bought them at the same time and they both seem to have died at the same time).

THE VCR WORKS FINE BUT THE DVD WONT PLAY, READ, OR DUB. WHAT DOES PCM, BITSTREAM, DRC, FREQUENCY AND DIVX REGITRATION MEAN AND OR/ ARE ANY OF THESE SETTINGS PERTINENT TO THIS PROBLEM.
