Question about Dual Presidian DVD Recorder
In attempting to copy a VHS (external source) into the DVD recorder and following the directions exactly from the owner's manual.....the result was a DVD with nothing but "static" on it! What did I do wrong?? Does anyone have a procedure to follow that has worked for them? Thanks in advance.
Make sure you are using the right input. Also the VHS might have macrovision copy protection to prevent copying. you may need a video stabilizer box if you have macrovision. If its a home movie VHS then its an input setting on your DVD recorder. it may only record from the internal vcr not an external but I am not sure

I don't know if this will help, but according to the operator's manual I have, on page 64, the only place it mentions "Full" or "Quick" Preparation, is when using a DVD-RW disc. Apparently, with this type of disc, you must use the Full or Quick preparation INSTEAD of Finalizing after you're thru recording onto the disc.
With the DVD-R and DVD+R, all you can do is "Finalize"; With the DVD+RW, if I'm reading this correctly, NIETHER Finalization OR Preparation is required.
But with the DVD-RW, apparently ALL you can do is a "FULL" or "QUICK Preparation.
If you're only getting "Erase or "Finalize" WITH the DVD-RW, then it appears there may be a problem with the machine.
Or, if you're attempting the "FULL or QUICK" Preparation with any disc OTHER than the DVD-RW, all you should get is "erase" or Finalize", since the QUICK or FULL Preparation is not done with discs other than DVD-RWs.
Hope this helps. I'm certainly not an expert on these things....I'm a "Vinyl" type guy.

I am beginning to think the machine works with slower discs but a firmware update will enable the machine to function with the newer "16x" and other discs. Unfortunately, neither Presidian nor the "real" manufacturer (whose name slipped my mind) seem to currently have the update available on their web sites.

SOURCE: DVD tray will not open
When a disk is stuck inside the player , try following the procedure below:
Unplug power cord.
Plug back power.
Turn on the unit and press repeatedly the eject button at the same time. If you successeed in ejecting the disk before the player starts reading TOC(disk initial track), then the disk will eject.
If that does not work, then there is an internal fault, in that case the unit must be taken apart to remove the disk.
