This is a common problem with this model,The sensor inside the player that tells the player a tape is in or the tape has been ejected is Broken or out of alinement .This will need to be repaired by a pro and to be honest with you it might be cheaper to buy a new one!

I "inherited" a Sylvania SSD803 combo player that works well. I bought a remote online that was made for this unit. I looked at the manual and could not find any codes to program the remote. Do you ha


If you purchased a Sylvania remote to work with your Sylvania player, the codes are in the remote. No "programming" is necessary, just point and shoot.

VCR Stops on me


Hello Ro Power,

 

This might be due to the tape sensor malfunctioning. You will need a schematic, and multimeter, and a LED power meter to work on this problem. When the tape loads it causes an LED sensor to become blocked and then the sensor tells the control chip that a tape is present and the the controll chip allows the tape to continue playing, if the sensor does not work the signal never gets to the control chips and since other events happend and triggered the control chip the control chip looks at this as an error and the stops the tape , some units even eject the tape.

 

If you do not have a background in electronics, I would suggest that you take the VCR to a qualified shop and have them repair it.

 

I hope this helps,

Thank You,

Magnavox ZV427MG9 DVD Recorder VCR Combo plays vcr for about 5 second then stops and shut off, when turned back on it ejects the tape.


This combo has a problem with the vcr unit which take up wheel will stop working and spill the tape. the unit will stop and eject the tape. You have to replace the whole vcr assembly.

I hAVE 24 in DVD triple combo ^&@$DG TV. I put


You're describing what could be a loose or worn loading belt problem, most of the vcr mechanisms used in these combos use one to load the tape and thread it for it to play or record, that is why you have to keep puhing the tape untill the machine accepts the tape and you have to keep pressing play untill it starts the play function.

Ssd803 dvd won't recognize universal remote


Sorry to say that most universal remotes do not work well with combo devices ie. vcr/dvd, tv/vcr, and so on. One thing you can try doing is to program the vcr portion of the remote to controll the vcr side, and the dvd protion to control the dvd side. More than likeley there will be a lack of functionality since combination units have buttons that would not be needed on individual devices.

I have found that the Logitech Harmany universal remotes work very well with anything but they tend to cost quite a bit more. You might be able to find a basic model on ebay or amazon for around $50.

CST In light is flashing green


I had the same problem. Aren't three-year-olds great? Mine had jammed several clothing tags into the VCR slot. Clearing them out didn't solve the problem, but I then took the outer case off (with power disconnected of course) and verified that there was no physical damage to the tape heads and that everything internally was clear. I put the case back on, and everything's back to normal.

Go-Video VCR Problem with accepting/ejecting tapes


As with any VCR, there are rubber parts inside that have become slick. This is a simple repair for any shop. The mechanisms are Samsung ones if I remember correctly. Expect a parts cost between $20-$40. Add in the local labor rate for the total cost. This is worth the repair cost as any replacement would not last anywhere near as long. This is also a normal occurrance as rubber parts harden with age. I have repaired many of these over the years.
