Question about Philips DVDR3390/37 DVD Recorder

Stuck in "UPDATE"

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 have the same problem. I am trying to record from a sony camcorder and as soon as I chose the video source, it goes to update and is locked up at this point. Only way to get out is to unplug the unit.

I downloaded the file from the Philips site and it appears to work so far.

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.

  1. Slide the HOLD?POWER ON/OFF switch in the direction of "POWER ON/OFF" to turn on the IC recorder, or towards the center to release the IC recorder from the HOLD status. The stop mode window appears.
  2. Select the file you want to erase when the IC recorder is in the stop or playback mode.
  3. Erase a selected file. When the IC recorder is in the stop mode, press and hold ERASE.
    When the IC recorder is in the playback mode, press ERASE.

  4. Press ERASE. "ACCESS" appears in the display window and the selected file will be erased.
    When a file is erased, the remaining files will advance so that there will be no space between files.
Hint
  • To cancel erasing, press souni_stop.png(stop) in step 3.
  • To erase a part of a file, divide the file into two files first, and then proceed with steps 3 through 4.

How can I get the DVD out of the recorder, it's stuck?


Hi generally most dvd players have a small pin hole below the disk tray. It maybe covered by a dvd flap.
One you get to it just insert a pin and that will release the internal dvd player lock.
Thanks

Display says it is stuck on dvd 2 cannot program the dvd recorder to record


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.

Mine records and then stops after about 2 minutes


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.

Remote control "enter" will not respond in DVD mode


I had the same problem. Powering down and rebooting (unplugging) the recorder fixed the problem.

Recording Time


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
