T16 Message on Philips DVDR HDRW 720

I occasionally have a problem playing back a home recorded DVD on my HDRW 720 also apparently known as Philips DVDR 725H/00-02.
A message shows on the DVDR “T16”.
Strange thing is the DVD plays OK on other DVD players.
Have tried using an RCA discwasher Laser Disc Cleaner but not a cure.
Bought the DVDR new quite a few years ago but have mislaid the User Guide.
Appreciate any advice or suggestions.
Cheers: Ian Mc

That makes it worse, dismantle it and clean it using isopropanol and a qtip.

Appreciate the reply and advice But would probably need to take DVDR in to shop for this to happen !!

Why?

Is it under warranty?


#5

No. Not under warranty but reluctant to open something unless completely necessary and with better understanding of appliance.
Thanks again for your help and will just carry on as @ present.

You can find the manual here or here.
From a quick glance at it, it appears that it may not be able to handle DVD-R type discs. It is designed for DVD+R media. Under playback problems, compatible media are DVD-video or DVD+R(w) only.

Welcome to our forum, Ian.

So its a device glitch then?

Have you checked various DVD types?

Thanks Guys for all the feedback and the welcome.
Great to have the user manual.
Always use DVD+RWs.
Looks like most probably slight individual disc damage.
