I have a DVD Recorder Model No.DMR-EZ47VEB. I switch it on

Resolved Question:

I have a DVD Recorder Model No.DMR-EZ47VEB. I switch it on and get HELLO then READ and then a flashing UNFOR MAT. I can find no reference to this in the Operating Instructions and cannot get rid of it or start the recorder. Please advise.

michelleclive :

Hi, My name is ***** ***** i will be assisting you

michelleclive :

the message UNFORMAT indicates that there is a disc inserted in the recorder that is not supported\ not formatted or was recorded on another device

michelleclive :

please remove any disc that is inserted

michelleclive :

turn off unit

michelleclive :

unplug power cord

michelleclive :

keep the ON button on unit pressed for 10 secs

michelleclive :

plug in power cord and turn on unit( no disc should be inserted)

michelleclive :

let me know if it still gives the unformat message

Customer:

the unformat message no longer appears

michelleclive :

ok now insert any other disc than the one that was there in previously

michelleclive :

check if it repeats the error

michelleclive :

if the unit does not repeat the same error and operates normally then the disc that was inserted initially has a corruption or compatibility issue with the player and would need to be formatted. in case its a blank disc, format it to use it. if it has some content on it, i would suggest to transfer content onto another storage medium like maybe a computer.

michelleclive :

however if the unit does not operate normally let me know and i will suggest further accordingly
