When recording on to DVD, usually when I have a disc that already has something on it, or when I’m finishing off a disc (finalising) the DVD recorder makes awful squeaking noises, as though it needs oiling! It’s been doing this for a while now. It’s now reached the stage where it will not record properly and I cannot finalise discs or copy from the HDD to DVD in high speed mode (I only ever use this) without squeaks. It now refuses to finalise, rejecting the disc or not recognising it.
Thankfully, it’s still under warranty, but is there something I can do, or do I need to get in touch with Panasonic.
Apologies if this is discussed elsewhere… I did have a look and couldn’t find anything.
I just want to knwo if I am alone with this problem. My machine is the DMR-EH80V, which as VHS/HDD/DVD capability.
