Zenith XBR411 DVD Recorder/VCR Combo Problem

I have this model DVD/VCR combo. I recorded a lot of movies from the cable channel of my TV set onto blank DVD-R dvds. I have established my own little private collection of my favorite movies. I did learn that the DVDs that I recorded would not play on any other DVD player. So I talked with the store that I purchased the product from. They said I should look in the manual and follow the steps to finalize my DVDs that I recorded and I should be able to play them on other DVD players. I went through the steps and tried to finalize one of them but it didn't work and so I got frustrated and didn't try again. Now my DVD player is not working and the repairman said it can't be fixed. I even called up stores and searched on the internet to try to find another exact model but can't find one. How will I ever be able to watch my precious movies that I recorded since the DVDs won't play on any other DVD player and I didn't finalize them.

Is there another solution? Please help.

I have the XBR616 zenith combo.
If your dead set on initializing your dvds, I can try to
do one in my dvd player to see if it works, then send it back to you. I can't guarantee anything, my player is a bit fussy, but I don't mind helping you.

If so, let me know

How do I bring the menu up on a zenith VCR combo without the remote


Without a remote control you can't. To select a suitable replacement remote control, you should be aware about the set up codes for your device brand. To know more about it, visit the sites linked here. http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/
http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ Being there is no menu button at the front panel of your TV, without a remote control you can't select it's inputs. Universal remote controls are available by some online shopping centers too. Visit some of them.
Good luck

When playing commercial DVD's, my DR-MV150B starts to stall. It stops with the picture on the televsion screen, but can't see the rest of the movie. Any thoughts? The disc does eject.


Try cleaning the laser with a bud, if not it's either the spindle motor or laser assembly,

Veon tv manual


The eject button on the remote appears as an upward-pointing arrow with an underline - see below image. The eject button on the TV has a similar symbol.

However, I suspect that in your case, you might not be having a Remote.

This link says that your TV doesn't come with a Remote and DVD cannot be ejected without the remote :
