Hi Clive,

If this happens with multiple discs then the recorder may need cleaning.

Try running a cleaning disc in it and let me know if that helps:

I have run my cleaning disc but it has not cured the fault
Expert:  Pete replied 3 months ago.

It may take several runs.

If there is no improvement then there is a more serious fault with the lens or possibly the motor.
