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 hope I was of help!

I put it on vcr and put a vhs in it, it comes plays for about 5 seconds then it stops says error 1 and it completley shuts my player off, How would u fix this?


plenty of problems possible. I would pick the machine up and shake it, see if something rattles inside, if so see if you can get it to come out of the door, if not the cover will have to come off. if you are lucky it will be something a kid stuck in there or a part from a cassette, if not the machine is broken and would need to go to tech or goodwill. if it doesn't rattle you will have to take the cover off and you can watch the tape as it starts and will be able to see directly what is happening to make the tape stop. vcrs will stop and shut off if the tape is getting stuck or if something is broken.

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.

The VCR accepts the tape and starts to play; then stops and shuts off; when you turn the power back on the tape ejects


You have a transport problem, the mechanism the plays, FF or rewinds is not working.

Someone is going to have to open and look at the unit---as simple as a belt off or broken to the idler (rubber or geared) that doe the actual work, finding a shop that will work on a VCR unit is getting hard as most of the current techs have never seen this type of unit.

What I used to do when I opened one was have a old cassette with the tape removed! but the reels inside of it still there--tape off both sides of the cassette where it opens so the sensors on either side do not try to stop the unit from allowing this.

This way with the unit open and the dummy cassette in you can see thru its top to see if the reels are moving or not and not have the tape get in the way.

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.

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.

Zenith XBV 342 DVD Tray will not open and the VCR will not play


Every DVD player has a reset function...it is just like rebooting your computer.
For my Samsung, it was to hold in the channel up and down buttons for 10-15 sec with the power on and the whole machine restarts.

Call your manufacturer support line and ask for this option.

It worked for me...Good luck

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.
