SONY RDR-VX515 does not record,says INF-WRITE ??

by cjust24 / January 24, 2006 11:10 AM PST

I JUST PURCHASED THIS recorder and can't find anything in the manual about INF-WRITE.I like sony products and have always had,nevermind that.
I connected straight to the tv [rca]with the cable hooked to recorder,we are waiting for cable-one to clear up our signals on higher channels since hurricane katrina[gulfport,ms].when i try to record from vhs-dvd it lights up like it is working,then after 45seconds or so it stops,goes back to tv and flashes INF-WRITE one time on recorder.The same thing happens when trying to record tv.
what have i done wrong?does sony have tech support for people like me who don't have a clue?

SONY RDR-GX315 does not record, says INF-WRITE
by 24infront / October 16, 2006 1:57 PM PDT

I have the same problem with my RDR-GX315. I press the record button and it displays an INF-WRITE message and then stops after 10 seconds.
I did this several time and all I got was several 10 second segments of the movie I tried to record. Now it does not record at all.
I've tried to even record my local news so it can't be copy protection...

The SONY tech site lists nothing about this INF-WRITE display nor does the Operating instructions.

Has anyone else encountered this problem? My next step will be to sit for 6 hours on hold to speak with SONY Tech support.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
