TV/VCR/Stereo Troubleshooting/dvd,vcr player/recroder


I have a Toshiba Mod.dvr620 less then a year old. I record with no problems on DVD/VCR. vcr play back is good,Ican not get the dvd disc to play on other dvd players.But It will play on my portable dvd player.

Here is a good commentary on this model that may point to a compatibility model between the type or disc the dvr620 will record on whilst other players may not support.

Your player will work compatibly on most all dvd formats but will record only in DVD+R discs, I think.  In any event, it may be a compatibility issue that you are facing.

Hope this helps.
