Question about GoVideo Go Video DVD/VCR Combo

2 Answers

I'm about to post this

I have a model DV1140 on my 4 year old son’s room since 2004 and I’ve seen this kind of issue before. This is mostly caused by trying to eject the DVD without pressing “stop” twice before ejecting it. But since you are already in trouble you may try this: First, let the player start to play the movie (you must let it play all the sneak previews first). Second, press “stop” twice (make sure the counter reads 0:00:00). Third, press “eject”. It should be working fine by now. If not, then you’ll probably experiencing the same issue I had today. My wife came to me complaining about the dvd player, she told me that she couldn’t get the player to eject the disc. “Women” I thought (sorry for that I didn’t mean it), but when I was trying my “magic” I heard an unusual winding noise coming out from the DVD tray. Since I couldn’t get the DVD to eject I decided to open up the player and check it for any loose or broken parts, nothing fancy anyone can do this. (If you don’t feel comfortable with this, just don’t do it and take the unit to a repair shop). Ok, now for the ones who stayed with me. Most important; first, unplug the unit from the AC outlet and disconnect it from all sources (TV, Cable, Sat, etc.). Remove a few Philips screws located at both sides and on the back panel and then remove the top lid, you should be able to see your disc by now. There should be another small black plastic “lid” on top of your DVD tray (this ensures the disc stays in place and centered), remove this lid by unscrewing another two Philips screws located on both sides of this “lid”. By now you should be able to remove your disc. After removing the disc you may try to plug the unit back to an outlet and turn it back on to look for any unusual sounds (like the one I heard) to identify any issues, (CAUTION: avoid any exposure to the laser beam). If you can’t find anything wrong yet then proceed to remove the front panel (it has a few clips all around just be careful not to break any of them). Now, check inside the DVD mechanism (a flashlight may be helpful here) when you look inside search for two small “pulleys” (mostly white)there should be a black rubber belt running around them if there is no belt around you’d just found half of the problem. If you are in luck you may find the little rubber belt (about an inch on diameter) or what is left of it inside the DVD tray. As soon as you find it you will have the other half of the problem. You see, when you press the eject button it activates a motor that spins the two “pulleys” I mentioned before with the help of the little belt you’d just found. This makes the DVD tray to move in or out of the player.
I hope this will be helpful for anyone out there with the same problem. (Remember, this work for my player (DV1140), I’m not totally sure that it’ll work for all models). As for me? Well, now I have to search for the belt p/n and were can I get two of them (one for spare). If anyone found it first you can contact me at: occ_68@yahoo.com

Where is sensor 33220-76G11 suzuki ignis


old post
you'd have to ask the dealer that, to do a reverse lookup.
why post this, why not post name of part.
or why asking backward,
most folks diagnose problems , do tests, the find a bad part by name ,then look up number based on location and name to order
a part, why backwards ?
just curious. never seen a question on any form like this in 10 years.

Yamaha 650 v star tps,.. how do i find it on a 2004...then how do I test it to see if its the problem??


I would still think this is a carb issue. Most techs stink at properly rebuilding carbs because there are so many different kinds.

I however have spent 15 years honing my carb skills to perfection.

If the bike was purchased from a person at a higher altitude, main jet size might be incorrect. Or if it has modifications to the exhaust or intake - also main jet.

Contaminated or old fuel could also be a factor - have you drained the tank?

The TPS has to be set and checked with an olm meter. The TPS controls the CDI second timing curve which may have failed. I have seen this many times!

Washer has squealing sound and burning rubber odor


Yes, its basically in need of a overhaul, which the parts involved, basket drive/clutch and gearcase are all wearing out, I've seen this happen many times and cause the squeal/spin cycle and then in time to slow then stop spinning altogether.

From the parts diagram it said this model was made in 1998. The only time I have changed these parts on a model this old is when the customer purchased a service contract when it was new and kept paying on the contact year after year, thus the repair was free to them, but most of the time its NOT practical to keep paying on a service contact for up to 10 years unless you have heavy/extreme, daily/many times of day use of the washer, usually for large families living in the same household.

Here's the list of parts I always change for this issue, now some members and techs. could possibly change just the basket drive/clutch assembly or just the clutch alone and it may work for another 6 months or year and a half, but I found when I used to change the parts separately I had to go back to change the other parts within 6-18 months.

Help! Our Optoma DLP projector is about 6 months old. It started with one white dot on the screen. It has since mulitplied to be at least 20 white dots all over the screen and now some black dots are...


Your DMD chip or DMD driver need to be checked. The most likely it is DMD. If your projector is new with one year warranty, send it to the company for repairs. They will replace it at no cost.

My 2004 santa fe starts up but then dies, ran fine all day yesterday and this morning did this...lights come on so battery is ok.....fuel pump should be ok if it the car starts.....Ive read some horror...


The best kind of car is the paid-for kind...brand has very little to do with it these days. There are all kinds of things that can cause your vehicle to start and die. A MAP Sensor could cause it. I have even seen bad ignition switches cause similar symptoms. Nobody can tell you how much it is going to cost or how much you can "expect to spend" until you find out what is causing it...that's what the diagnostics is for. As far as trading the vehicle in???...All I can say about that is that I can't figure the math that most people use. I have had customers tell me that they cannot afford a vehicle any longer because they had to spend $2000 dollars in the last year on repairs. Then they turn around and jump into a $450/Month car payment???? How is it they can afford $5400/year in car payments, but cannot afford $2000/year in repairs to keep their old car in good running condition? My computer just does not work that way...I don't get it.

Infocus lp755 projector has horizontal lines in picture. Do I need a new bulb?


There is no way a bulb could cause this issue.
A couple problems could cause this issue, The most common being equipment failure (would need service) Failed electronics, which may be repairable but now a days, most company just replace entire component boards. This sounds like it may be a grounding issue.
Eaither the power outlet it is plugged into is not grounded, or properly grounded. I have seen this issue arise out of know where, Example when someone plugs another device in near the projector (ex. computer,ps3 etc)
First things to try,
Replace power cable and with an electrical tester test your ground on the outlet and / or unplug any other or new device near the projector. (may not just mean same outlet or power strip as more then one outlet in the same room is most likely connected to the same fuse or breaker) Or just take it else ware and plug in and test.
If none of this helps please update your post with results or re post with new info.
