Downloaded DVD's can often be encoded using different software and some work better than others.

If they only play to the exact same point they were probably built from a pair of files eg cd1 and cd2 and then encoded into one.

Computers can handle these issues much better than any dvd player due to the availability of CODECS and more tolerant software. They will often play DVD's that dvd players cannot even touch

I would suggest that you run them through another program and re-burn them. Nero does a great job and will even add chapters if they are not currently set

Try stick to the exact same source for your DVD files.

It is sure that the processor is giving the commands and outputs the drive voltage to the loading motor to work and open the tray or load the cd.
This means that the motor is faulty, the motor drive output IC is defective, the circuit leading to the drive IC must be checked for the loading voltage from the processor to confirm.
Finally the possibility of the motor being jammed, the mechanism or the gear movements are restricted by foreign particles or that there is misalignment of the linkages of the loading mechanism.
This means there is voltage on the motor without the mechanism moving which will require an overhauling of the drive mechanism.
Remove the section, check voltage and reset.

It all depends on the region coding of your player and the code on each disc.

For example, if the DVD region code is 1, and the player is region 4, the disc will not be compatible. The same can be said of region 4 discs in a player specifically intended as a region 1.

Region-free discs (or '0') should work with this player. It sounds like a restriction from region coding between the discs and the player. There isn't much you can do except use discs marked 'region 0' or 'ALL' (playable worldwide), or those which match the code on your player. Check your disc's cover for region code information (if any).

I do not recommend region hacks as these may damage your player.

I haven't heard of Alligator Dundee, but after some reading up on it, it appears to be a parody of Crocodile Dundee, which was more popular.

There a few things that can cause this, bad loading sensor, the idler assembly is defective, or a broken drive belt, to find the actual cause you will need a tech to see if it can be remedied at a reasonable price.

Hello there,

This is most likely because the recorder is connected to a cable box. When setting the timer recording feature with a cable box as the source, you are not actually selecting the channel to record. You are selecting the recording source. The cable box sends all of the channels to the recorder using RF channel 3. In this case, the channel for recording will be whichever channel is selected on the cable box.

To help me give you a more definite answer, please can you answer the following quick questions:

1. Are you using a cable box?
2. If using a cable box, how is it connected to the recorder?
3. What is the model number of the GoVideo recorder, e.g. DVR4000?

Did the tape remain inside the VCR after the power-off? if so, it is probably one of many causes including:

the power supply may have several short-circuit/leaky components within it, especially electrolytic capacitors and IC regulators;

if the VCR operates mechanically with more than 1 belt, chances are the belt(s) will need replacement (but not likely if the model is relatively recent, i.e. less than 5 years old).

Presuming the unit is idle, no tapes or discs in it, and it reverts to standby/clock by itself, without any action from you, then it would be poor regulation from the PSU.

Being a budget-model, the PSU should be pretty straightforward and not too expensive to fix.

Buy a 'universal' remote - available from most electrical / tv stores

Hi there,

The Zenith player/recorder will be able to record to DVD from an external input such as a PVR. The most likely reasons you are unable to record successfully are:

1. The TV / DVR is not connected to the Zenith recorder correctly. You need a separate cable for recording. You cannot record using the cable that is connected for playback of DVD discs.
2. The TV / DVR does not have "VIDEO OUT" sockets
3. You have not selected the correct external input on the Zenith recorder

If you can let me know the brand and model number of your TV / DVR and how it is connected to the Zenith DVD recorder, I can let you know why it isn't working, how to make it work, and even draw you a setup diagram, if required. It's very difficult to give you the correct answer without these details.

You Zenith DVD recorder will record from the DVR - the real question is, can the DVR send video to the Zenith DVD recorder . . . ?

If you have blue screen or snow on the tv, it means the video head is dirty. Use a wet or dry cleaning tape, I recommend the dry because it is easier on the mechanism. The other option is to buy a store bought blank tape T120 and set the vcr to sp and let it run the full two hours.

I push the VHS Cartridge in, it drops down to the play position, the front door opens, the tape comes out, it goes around the chrome wheel that is spinning, but it will not play, will not rewind, will not fast forward. It then shows "Error" and the machine shuts off, with the tape still around the chrome wheel, When I turn the machine back on, the VHS Cartridge ejects from the machine. This machine has been used very little, I loaned it to my Son In Law and it came back with the VHS Tape Deck not playing. I have the machine open, so I can see what it is doing.
