Dvd3390/37- If I record a program the recorder remains stuck in UPDATE mode and will not release from it. The only way to get it to stop is to unplug it and you lose whatever you've recorded. It cannot be shut off via the power button and the tray cannot be opened while in this mode.
I just found on the Philips website a file to download and have the DVDR use to update itself to fix that problem and a few others. I've not tried it yet but will be doing so tomorrow. It's worth a shot.

Hi, DVD recorder stuck on DVD 2 mode that means you can no longer operate it with its remote, right? Now you need to change remote mode to DVD 2 so recorder can receive its signals. Slide down lower cover of remote and set Command Mode switch to DVD 2 position, now your recorder will get remote signals and you can operate it properly. Thanks.
I had to modify the resolution and framerate settings to a lower level to make mine work reliably using 4 cameras. Otherwise mine would do the same thing as you have described. Once I lowered these it has worked but still locks up recording on occasion. I check it as least once a week to make sure it's still recording. When it locks up, the video remains, but the time freezes and the recording stops even though the recording light remains on.
I have one of these recorders, I actually have 4 or 5, since discontinued I believe, and one is stuck at 43 min remaining.
I think that problems start when you remove the battery while
the recorder is / was in the process of recording (or in play mode) I now press stop while recording before opening the battery case to switch a battery
