PIONEER DVR-520H DISC PROBLEM
Yesterday, whilst trying to copy a programme from the HD to a DVD-R I got a message saying it could not complete the operation. This was a disc that had three episodes already on it it, and had more than enough room!! A check with a couple of brand new blank DVD-RWs resulted in a 'no disc' message. However, the unit will play a CD, and had no problem with a DVD/CD lens cleaner disc.
Could this be a firmware problem, or is it something else?? BTW, the hard drive works for recording and playback just fine.

Had one that was playing just great, then the next thing ya know is that it won't recognize any dvd in it. Gave a "No Disc" message. So, I called Panasonic, (without thinking first) they say that it is under warranty and to ship it to a place in Pa, I am in NY. So, I ship it on Thursday, according to UPS they get it on Friday.
I called on Monday, nope, they didn't get it, so I explain that UPS
says that they have it. I next talk to shipping who put me on hold and go looking. He comes back and says yep, they have it, but it may be a week before they look at it. I give him my # again, and tell him to call me. Yep, he calls back later that morning, says that labor is only for 90 days. I told him that the rep said it was under warranty, yes he says, parts are 1 yr. $89.95 to fix it. I tell him to hold it. I remember buying it from Shop4.com and they have a 2 yr warranty with it. I called them, they approve it immediately approve it, and get this, the repair shop is a 10 minute drive. I then call back Panasonic on Tuesday a.m. They promise to ship it back. I call Wed, nope, they didn't get around to it. It is now Friday a.m., and no player. I am pissed at myself first, then the rep, then the shipping dept. WTF? So I say to you, if you do buy it, get it from Shop4.com...at 299 it is a steal. This way you get a 2 yr service warranty for no extra charge.
