It happened once with a DVD-R (EQUIP) (6-hour registration), the only type that I have always used.
I did not dare to reput this disc even after cleaning it.
Thanks for the help.
Listen to the DVD Drive when it shows the "no read" error. Has it been making "grinding" noises? That usually indicates that it needs the routine DVD Drive rubber hub and spindle cleaning. The DVD Drive rubber hub attracts dust, debris and oily skin residue that causes a clamped disc to slip on the rubber hub during read, write and finalizing operations.
The usual routine service interval is every six to eight months, more frequently with heavy use, in warm, dusty or smoking environments; or where discs are handled with a finger through the center hole. This post and those following it have advice, information and photos:
Follow the advice and heed the cautions. It's very important to position the roller/slider to the far left at the rear of the disc tray, and do not extend the disc tray with the DVD Drive lid removed--serious complications may result.
Does the DVD Drive make "clunking," "chugging" or "errrp" noises? The problem might be as simple as a dirty lens that requires gentle cleaning at the same time as the hub and spindle are being cleaned, or it might be as serious as a failing or failed laser assembly. If the laser assembly is the problem you should send a private message to Mickinct to arrange for laser assembly replacement.
Or, it might be time to step up to one of the outstanding Magnavox HDD/DVD Recorders. The first post in Wajo's sticky thread is a wealth of information concerning these recorders:
I write from experience. I own around thirty functional Panasonic ES, EH and EA series recorders (and five of my six EZ series recorders have now been junked starting in 2009-with the sixth, a little-used DMR-EZ47, being retained for parts). I also own a dozen Magnavox and Philips HDD/DVD recorders, four more Magnavox recorders and three other Funai-built Toshiba and PYE recorders.
What cable company (are you held prisoner by) do you have? Tuesday, Comcast pulled the plug on the unscrambled digital local channels for me, making the QAM tuner in my Panasonic EZ47 obsolete. Do you have another device with a QAM tuner that's still getting reception of your locals you can check to see if they're still there, and it truly is the ez48 that's on the fritz?
