Customer Question

I have two DVD recorders, DMR-EX83EB. One is connected to the TV through a Scart cable and the other through an HDMI cable. They both frequently display the same intermittent fault as in: -
press drive select on the remote control and the recorder displays, "there may be a fault with the disc", then does a resent which takes several minutes. There is nothing wrong with the DVD or the HDD. After the reset completes the Recorder works fine - until we press the drive select button!
Can anyone please help with this problem - it's driving me to distraction.
