error can not do dubbing now

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
Thanks, ***** ***** confirms the issue as the recorder laser that has failed or the controller for it.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the recorder to have this replaced. It will be covered by the warranty, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you, but this is what has faulted.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

hi i have no warranty is it worth repairing is the cost too high thanks for your help

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
No, the cost and the limited warranty you get would exceed the benefit of purchasing a new one George. Especially with the prices recorders are at today.
