Alright to the START of my problem.
I bought this unit a while ago without a remote so I didn’t use it more then two or 3 times (recordered a few things but didn’t finalize). played and recorded fine. 8-10 months went by and I finally decided to buy a remote.
I get the remote and it wont recognize my dvd’s. Will pick up ocassionally but NEVER DVD-/+R blanks. Picked up 1 DVD-RW and started to record but errored.
So I cleaned the lens and still nothing. I upgrade the firmware. Seemed to work the same. Decided I was done messing with it for a while.
I turn it on today hoping maybe my pioneer 111 may work in it and all I get is a black screen and it says “Put CD in” on the front panel.
Did I destroy this unit somehow?
