I have one of these in my possession that my brother gave me cause he was moving country, he told me there was an issue with dvd tray opening. It refuses to stay closed therefore cannot play dvd's. Anyone know a way to resolve this issue as I refuse to discard the device without exploring ways of fixing it.
Matt have you had this issue with your machine ?
Last January I bought a DVD-SR275M from dabs.com
The first problem came with its inability to tune freeview; this was sorted within warranty by nearby Samsung repair people.
Soon after this it would no longer recorder programmed times, sometimes missing things by an hour, but mostly not recording at all.
As I was away from home at this time, the recorder pretty much just served as an expensive freeview box and DVD player.
Most recently the DVD drawer closes as almost instantly when you open (eject).
Is there anything I can do to fix this recorder, such as a hard reset or something? Bit fed up with the fact it has never reliably worked.
