Hi all, I hope someone can help with this problem.
I recently created a disc with .avi files (not the first time I’ve done this). When I inserted it into my machine all I get is the loading symbol on the TV screen. That symbol stays there for hours (not kidding, hours). If I press dvd on the remote the machine freezes and I need to turn it off at the wall. If I try ejecting the disc, either by holding the stop button on the remote or the eject button on the front panel, the machine freezes. If I try turning the power off, the machine freezes.
I found the posts regarding getting discs out of “blocked” machines but I guess it’s a different issue as neither way worked. The machine is still working in all other areas - timer recordings function, playing recordings from hdd works fine.
I’ve had no problems before this, annoyances yes, but no problems. Bought from a local retailer here in NZ 16 months ago, so the 12 month warranty has expired.
