Even if you do get it connected you cannot copy from vhs to dvd as you have bought a vcr recorder with dvd player, not a dvd recorder. You can only record to the vcr tape from a dvd, in the players controls.

If you are lucky; Sylvania is a branch of Funai which is the 'bottom of the barrel' on quality so it may be just another case of Funai-ism.
Other brands belonging to Funai:
Symphonic, Emerson, Aventura, Durabrand, ESA, Magnavox, INSIGNIA, Philips and Misakai
I earned part of my income from servicing consumer electronics some years ago and historically, Funai gear has been among the worst built.

Why does it indicate 'wrong region'?

DVDs come imprinted with a region code for the geographical area they are sold in. DVD players sold in the same area(s) have the same region code. If you purchase DVDs made for a different region code, they will not play on your player. This is done to prevent piracy and copyright violators. Players can have their region codes changed, but then anything you have already will not play, and you are usually limited to three or four region changes before the player will not allow any more.

Here is a link to a Wikipedia article explaining Region Codes in more detail....

I just bought a series of movies from the UK and found out about this whole regions thing. I have a Sylvania sdvd4101c an do can't figure out how to unlock it. Help!

Your trouble may not end at the region of the DVD player. There's the issue of format. There is NTSC (USA), PAL (UK) and a lesser used SECAM format. These are NOT interchangeable unless the player supports it. See this link for more:

What is the difference between PAL NTSC and SECAM

Many players can have the region changed. Most however, are computer drives. Home audio equipment can be tricky - and you might want to have a look here first:

Playing UK region 2 DVDs on American region 1 DVD players

Some players allow you to make several changes and that's all, or allow you to set to "Region Free" (which is ideal).

I have a sylvania dvd vcr combo and the progressive scan light is on and it wont play dvds. How can I fix this?

Try the (Goldstar and Zenith) trick - with the unit on, but no discs inserted, press and hold STOP button on the front (not the remote) for 10 seconds, then release. This should revert progressive back to normal interlace output for your TV and may also turn off the progressive LED indicator on your unit.

I mentioned 2 other brands in parentheses - because the (press and hold STOP for 10 seconds) trick works for progressive on those.

New dvd movie will not play

I rented Rush Hour 3 from blockbuster along with Woodcock and both did not play on my Sylvania DVD player. I did take them and put them on my computer and their was a page that came up INTERACTUAL
This DVD is enhanced with interactive features designed exclusively for use on a computer.
PLAY DVD with enhanced features (that prompted a download)
or PLAY DVD without enhanced features and you can play the DVD movie on your small home computer screen.
I believe that the DVD producers have added the ENHANCED FEATURES to be used on a computer and in so doing they do not work at least not on the Sylvania DVD players.

Not sure what type of machine you are talking about. But most of them have a label underneath or behind with the player region.
