I have 4 Toshiba DVR670. The third one I bought less than a year ago stopped playing tapes and ejected them and shut itself off. I tried rebooting. Did not help. I tried recording and it actually worked for about 4 minutes then ejected and turned itself off. Now it won't record either. When i called Toshiba they immediately told me that I should return the unit to them. it was a problem with the optical eye. Unfortunately the only shipper near me is USPS and they want $60 to ship it back to Toshiba. Since Toshiba does not have any DVR670 in stock and will not be getting any more I don't want a coupon for $303 to buy anything on Toshiba for 30 days. That's the only option they have given me. So i won't spend my $60.
Does anyone have a fix for the optical eye?
