I purchased a Phillips DVD75 DVD+R recorder 15 months ago and now I'm having trouble recording on a blank disc either from TV directly or from VHS tape. When I press "record" about 10 seconds into the recording process the screen freezes, and when I press "stop" I can't get the disc out of the recorder without first unpluggling the unit and then turning it back on.
I have tried several new discs and even purchased another brand of DVD+R discs with the same result. Does anyone know why this is happening? Does the unit have to be cleaned and if so how? Do I have to take it in for servicing?
Also I'm now having some trouble with playback on certain discs that have already been burned and finalized. In the past there was no trouble and they played. I put them away for a few months, take them out to play them again and I get a message saying DISC ERROR or UNKNOWN DATA. How can the data be gone? I take out the disc and clean it, put it back in and the same thing appears.
If anyone can answer my questions I really would appreciate it! PLEASE HELP!!!! Thanks!
