Philips DVD recorder - what is this error?

DB 7FCCDD96

What does this mean? It is a dvdr-980.


#2

Can’t find any error code like that, even in the old forum. Presumably only Philips will know.

I had a DB error code on my DVDR77.
I spoke to a tech here in the states (who even asked
another tech nearby). They’re familiar with the AB codes, but not the DB’s. They were stumped. I originally got this code once a few weeks ago. Then it was fine for a few weeks. Then, out of the blue, it cropped up again. It turned out to be the same DVD+RW I had used a few weeks earlier (I had it marked). The other numbers on my code were different from yours though.

My recorder actually reboots itself when it doesn’t have a disc in so I don’t think it is disc-related. Philips have offered me a “discounted” 615 as a replacement so I’m currently trawling the web for reviews etc.


#5

Are you strictly limited to that model or just that price range?


#6

That’s what was offered by Philips Ireland but I’ve since learned that Philips UK are offering FREE replacements with their latest HDD/DVD Recorder model. So I’m looking into this. If I can get written confirmation of the offer than I’ll be on to Philips UK like a shot. I live in the UK (Northern Ireland) so I don’t know why I’ve been passed to their Irish people (although they are a hell of a lot easier to deal with).

Don’t you DARE pay them another penny! Hell with a discount - they should gladly replace it free of charge. Stay on them about it and don’t take no for an answer.
