When you say downloaded movies are they avi's, vob's mpegs, mov's or windows media files? Which files are you using on the cds? what software are you using to burn the discs? When you burn onto cds are you creating VCD's or just data discs. When you burn onto a RW disc it cannot be finalised. I think you are possibly either not using mpegs or vobs or you discs are not being finalised. (When i say vobs i mean dvd compiled and compatible discs)

It is also possible that you are trying to record using an already used -R or an unformatted RAM disk.

This is happening because your DVD is NOT all region, you need to change the Code.

This is a good sign that the power supply is having a problem. In standby or even on without a tape or disc, the current draw is low. Once a disc or tape is inserted there is a higher demand on the power supply. This is usually some defective capacitors that are easily replaced. Realize that there are other possibilities as well, but the power supply is the most common. The parts cost is in the $15 range.

The manual for my DVD-V3500 says that you can't record from DVD to the VCR. But, can you record from the VCR to a DVD?


In short, no. Not with this unit on its own. No function for recording from or copying to DVDs exists with this brand/model.

A separate DVD recorder is required. I don't know of anyone who records DVDs to tape these days.

You are correct; the manual states clearly you cannot record from the DVD deck in this machine, which is a bit unusual, considering other brands of combos such as LG, SONY and PANASONIC offered an input (which was between channels or could be selected via remote) to allow DVD to VHS recording within the one unit.

I would presume you can connect this combo to the input of a DVD recorder, play a videotape and it will work via cables. DVDs last longer than tapes anyway.

DVD doesn't play any disk anymore. Displays a message: this can't of disc can't be played ... I tried several different types of disks.


Same here! It would say something along the lines of "this type of disc cannot be played. please insert a different disc." it's the appropriate dvd region, i've tried all types of dvds, and it still won't work. the vhs and cd still works, it's just the dvd player that won't.

Will not play any DVD


I may have bad news for you. Here's my story with the PVD4744S.

I watched over an hour of a DVD-video disc one night, no problems. The next night, I played only the intro; then the DVD player gave a message, "This type of disc cannot be played. Please insert another disc." Thereafter, I couldn't play any of several DVDs.

The manual gives little help:

My disappointment is exacerbated by the declining availability of DVD/VHS players with an RF modulator. Maybe Panasonic should create a repair kit for aging devices.
