D7FC58256 on a DVDR 890

I have been given a dvdr 890, unfortunately without a remote. It plays well but it I try to record with the button on the front it wont and gives error message D7FC58256. Anyone know what it means.

Unfortunately the meaning of error codes given by Philips machines are known only to them :rolleyes:.

What type (+R or +RW), brand and speed of discs are you using to try and record?

Also, if you could read this thread:


…and tell us which firmware you currently have on the 890?

I have no remote for this unit and am a bit reluctant to buy one till I have a sporting chance of getting it going.
Any way round this
