If it is new, best advice is to take it the Comapny Service Centre, as you are having Warranty.

I have a DVD/VHS recorder and lost the remote for it --DVW 5000 --Will a Universal Remote work?

We lost our original remote also. We got a generic remote. It came w/instructions & a list of brands/devices that it will work with. I found Sanyo on the list & entered the code associated w/Sanyo into the new remote & presto. We were using our DVW 5000 again.

Sanyo DVW 7200 Disc Error

check to see if the disc spins......As in place the disc in the DVD player with the label in a position that is readable to you....Put the disc in close the tray and wait a few seconds. Open the tray and se if the disc actualy has moved. If it hasent then the motor is bad and not worth replacing!

I just had the same problem and stumbled across this solution:
If this is a sanyo dvd player try this:
Enter the set-up menu (there cannot be a disc in the unit to access this menu, simply eject the disc, then enter set-up)
  1. For the password enter 788444 (even if there is only room for four digits enter all six)
  2. Press enter (the lock should open)
  3. Enter a new four digit code (this will lock it again)
  4. renter the new code to edit the settings

DVD won't eject

Same problem - same solution. I have tried to verify if there is too much movement in the tray (vertical) but it is a random issue with mine..... except now I can't get system to recognize I want to load DVD instead of tape! See separate thread.
