Disk initialised numerous times per night.
Screen suddenly went blue
Didn't record as programmed.
When playing what it did record, on a couple of occasions, the screen pixelated and repeated the same scene for about two minutes.

My Daewoo DSD9503T keeps locking up and has a high pitched hum some times
changes channel randomly

I have never had a problem with mine, but bought one for my parents which goes into the 'hard disk needs initialising' never-ending loop which disables all recording functions and means it is little more than a very expensive freeview box. Has been replaced twice so now 'm giving up and going with another manufacturer (read more)

We have had this machine for just over a month, and it has broken down already. The only message we have on the screen is that the hard drive is being initialised. This has taken all evening so far! Daewoo customer service is closed, presumably for the whole of the Bank holiday weekend, so we will be without a recorder for several days. (read more)

The Daewoo DSD9503T hard drive recorder is a great piece of kit to rival skybox for freeview customers. Can record one channel whilst watching another and pause live TV up to two hours. Great electronic programme guide with really simple instructions. (read more)
