    I don't even know how to get into the recording set up. I have no manual and have never recorded anything. I just thought you had to put a blank dvd in and hit the record button like you would on a regular VCR but obviously not. Is there any way i can get to the recording menu through the remote or something??

    Thanks very much for your help, i will attempt to try to access the recording menu through the remote today. I have also searched for a manual but to no avail.
    I will let you know how i go, once again many thanks for your help!

    well I have been searching for a manual for you and i cannot find one at this time , but people were having problems with these models not finalizing after a dvd record. what you could do is call sansui and tell them you need a firmware update on your dvd player then ask them if your could also get a manual be cause you don't think it came with one. hope this helps!

    again sorry for that as I'm getting tired , gota stop , but to record on the dvd checkthe menu for recording options , like timmer record with dvd or recording preferences

    let me know how that worked and I'll check back ,gota sleep now , check back tomorrow

    my bad yes it should record , you should try the setup for recording to see if it will have a source to record from

  • jason May 11, 2010

    you do know that this model doesn't record dvd's , don't you?, its just a dvd player and VCR tape recorder , sorry to have to tell you that, I hope someone didn't tell you it was!

    also you should have a menu thru the remote on the dvd and you might have to switch it to dvd on the selection for dvd and vcr when trying to record. but try a cleaning disk in there if it also has problems playing dvd's and after every 8 hours of play

Have a Sansui VCR/DVD player/recorder. I'm trying to record a VHS to a DVD. Lost the manual. Can you walk me throuh it?

Google the term "Sansui/the model number/manual." A lot of hits will come back, likely a number will have a free downloadable copy of the owners manual.
