Question about Televison & Video
Just bought a Philips DVDR3570H/05 DVD hard drive recorder from ebay.
Whenever I switch the unit on it reads "starting" on the LCD screen, after a few seconds I see the Philips logo on the TV screen but then it seems to reset and continue lopping through this process.
Having downloaded the manual I've gone through the reset proceedure which involves unplugging the unit, holding the on/standy button and plugging it back in. It's then supoosed to reset and show "Demo mode" on the LCD. Pressing standyby again at this point should reset the system but ut doesn't work. The unit just continues to loop as described earlier!
Have I been sold a dud?
Anyone who can help would be greatly appreciated.
I had this problem, it was solved by reformatting the hard-drive.
NOTE: if you do this, all settings and all that is saved on the harddrive is lost. But seeing that you can't start it anyway, that is acceptable, right? :)
Anyway, here's how you do it, according to Philips support:
Also of note: if you want to restore the firmware to factory settings, Philips support told me to pull the cord, press and hold the STANDBY button, and plug it back in again. For the looping problem though, I didn't need that.

If you go to www.philips.co.uk, in the search box type the model number of your DVD (DVDR3570H) a blue dropdown will appear & click on it. This takes you to a new page highlighted is support info for your DVD. Click on this to go to next page, on this on the left had side there is a product support section with software & drivers section. Click on this & it will bring up a firmware upgdade download. This is a zip file you can download & once opened you can burn to a CD disc. Once you have the disc, unplug the dvd hold down the record & forward button at the same time & plug in the DVD. This will eventually open the disc tray, place the disc in the tray & it will auto run. if this does not fix it then its f****d
