DVD locked in and door is not opened

Hi There

 

After finalizing the DVD, I just get "Please, Wait" on the front panel and DVD recorder door is not openeing at all.

According to the noise from DVD recorder it seems that DVD keeps stop and start rotating.

Tried:

1) Eject butoon on the remote control and on the DVD recorder to open the door

2)unplugged overnight

3)Reset the device by pressing power button longer than 5 seconds(no changes noticed in resetting)

 

none of the above worked, please advise me what to do.

 

Thanks

    My DVD Recorder is a Philips DVD Recorder 3440H.

    It works fine until I press and hold down the stop button to open the draw, then I get a message on the display which says BLOCKED, and the draw just won't open. I have tried unplugging the machine overnight to restart it up next morning, but still the draw just won't open. I have only had the recorder a few months, but cannot find the receipt to take it back to the store, and I cannot remember if I bought it from Curry's or Dixon's.

For those users who just bought their machines, I would suggest warranty service. Roxanne2 should contact Philips directly with the seiral number, and they should be able to say which store they sold it to. That unit probably has a bad internal DVD writer drive.
The following solution should only be done if your machine is out of warranty unless you get permission from the manufacturer, as it will likely void the warranty otherwise:
Unplug the unit, disconnect all cables and move it to as static-free of an area as possible. Remove the cover, which usually means removing a lot of screws. Most DVD recorders have regular drives like you see in PCs. There is usually a tiny hole in the lower-right part of the drive that you can stick a small wire into, such as an unbent paper clip. You can then manually pull the drive open to get the DVD out.

What disc should be used? DVD-R or DVD+R ?


Use DVD+R,

According to the claims of the DVD Alliance, using a DVD+R (or DVD+RW) recorder will provide the following advantages over a DVD-R recorder:
  1. Instantly eject without having to wait for finalized formatting.
  2. Ability to record one DVD disc partially on PC and partially on television.
  3. Background formatting: while the disc is being formatted, you can simultaneously record on already-formatted portions of the same disc.
  4. Enhanced ability to edit filenames, movie and song titles, and playlists.
  5. 100% compatibility with all other DVD players, while still enjoying these extra recording features.

Hi there, My problem is I have a toppro tpr2000 hd recorder and sometimes when I record and have finished, and press stop I get 'record is finalizing please wait' which then just freezes on the screen....


It won't damage the recording on your recorder it will mean you won't be able to view the disc on a different machine, possibly. The finalizing of a disc ensures the table of contents is recorded on the disc.
Try a better quality disc?

I cannot play burned dvd's from this system in other dvd players becahse I cannot finalize the dvd. How do I finalize?


The recording may have used all the media on the disk because you let it run until it was full.
Now, there is no room to finalize the disk.

Play this back on the machine where it was recorded while recording it to another DVD recorder..
This time, BE THERE to stop the recording.
Set the recorder to a speed that leaves at least 10 minutes extra space for finalization.

My disc records fine, plays great on the Magnavox, but no other player can read the disc?


You must finalize a disc before it can play on other machines. Please refer to your documentation for how to finalize a disc.

Just comes up with "Please wait" it wont load!


Hi there,

I had a RH 178 with the same problem. I opened case and removed the plate with the 2 drive cables and the front lcd cable. Simply wait a few mins and plug it back in, connect the 3 cables and use the 4 srews and VOILA it runs!!

No more "please Wait"

I think it was a connection problem with the "uplink" to mainboard (not the three drive cables and LCD). Can someone please report if it works with his LG?


greets proliant

LG DR-4810 DVD Displays " PLEASE WAIT"


to open the tray during "please wait", remove casing then loosen front panel (clips either side and underneath). Power up to get "please wait", then press small microswitch in bottom right corner of the DVD player unit. Have you tried resetting the unit (turning on and holding the power button for at least 5-10 seconds)? Have you tried unplugging the unit for a longer period of time (24 hours)? get your firmware upgrade through here(sorry its in german, you might be able to get an english of it through the LG site) - http://www.lgupdate.de.ms/ two cd's- bootloader.iso , update.iso Good luck
