Question about Panasonic DMR-ES40VS DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

Two problems at the same time: VCR plays split screen and DVD player won't ready Disks (Errrrr)

Two problems started simultaneously, so I suspect a single cause. Problem 1: VCR plays a screen split in the middle and in black and white. Audio is fine. DVD player does not ready any disks at all and gives error message Errrr. Tried some of the standard things like reseting, and took off the cover and cleaned of the dust, but no luck. Changed Output cables and tried different outputs and even a second TV and no luck. Any suggestions other than getting a new one?

    The VCR and DVD both play split screen and in black and white. It is also a shaky bad black and white picture.

Getting a new one is about all you can do in this case. A repair for this type of problem would likely cost more than the replacement.

Why won't the DVD-RW disks FORMAT? I've seen others with the same problem with formatting multiple types of disks... Please help.


If you are using a Sylvania DV220SL8 DVD Player \ VCR combo (which this question is posted under the heading of) there is a very simple reason why you can't format DVD-RW disks. DVD Players can't do that. You need a DVD Recorder to format DVD's.

This applies to all comments under this heading as well. You can not record if the unit you're using does not have that capability. And this unit does not have it. You can record with the VHS VCR, but the DVD Player is just that... A Player. It's not a Recorder.

My Smasung DVD/VCR Combo stopped reading DVDs because of a dirty read head. It started by only playing disks sometimes, and progressed to never playing disks. I assumed it was a dirty laser lens so I bought a lens cleaner set. Unfortunately my player wouldn't play the cleaner disk.

So I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens manually with some isopropyl alcohol (the clenser that came with my cleaning disk), and a lens cloth (that came with my glasses). Just open the case (starting with the screws in the back) and remove the snap in cross panel that obscures the lens of the DVD portion. Put a drop of cleanser on the lens and gently wipe it with the cloth.

Oh and by the way, I take no responsibility if you break your own player while following my instructions. My own DVD player was far out of warranty at the time I cracked it open.

Will Not Play CD-Rs Part Deux


Checked specs- YES -supposed to play MP3's. Did you try other MP3 Audio disks in the DVD? You can try the MP3 disk in your computer to make sure it is OK. If it plays in the computer, have to suspect a problem with the DVD unit - probably the converter IC.
