Hoping someone can help me, new here to the forum.
I bought my ES15 about three weeks ago. Set it up as per instructions and everything seemed to be working OK.
I haven't watched any DVDs in the last couple of weeks however when I went to watch a Harry Potter movie tonight, nothing happened. It took ages to READ the DVD and then after going to PLAY, nothing happened just a black screen. Remote didn't work, pushing the stop or open/close didn't work. Pressed the power button and after about two minutes it shut down.
So......tried playing FOUR other store-bought DVDs and the same thing happened every time! All the DVDs work in other machines (DVD player/ PC, etc.).
My wife recorded a show after the initial setup and it came out fine. I even played it tonight with no issues as per the store ones.
What is or could be the problem? Am I just unlucky with a faulty recorder or is there any 'setup' tip that I have missed (I really followed everything I was to do).
Any help is extremely appreciated as it is going back to the Big Box Store tomorrow if not resolved. Fortunately I am still under the 30 day return policy for no hassles.
I really like this Recorder (first one I've had) and would prefer to keep it if possible.
Thank you in advance.
