Question about GoVideo Go Video DVD/VCR Combo

1 Answer

DVD slot does not open. Can't insert into it.

Model DV 1030. Purchased in 2004 in CA and was able to use it then. Have not tried to use it since 2006. (So it only had about 1 1/2 year's actual usage. That means an average of 1 DVD every other week.)
The machine is connected to the cable box and I assume all the connections are OK. The power goes on, the VCR part works fine--insert and eject in the VCR are OK. Pressing eject for the DVD does nothing for that slot. I do get the message that I can "Load" and that there is "no disc". Doesn't all of this seem to indicate that everything is connected alright. So what do you think is the problem?

Sounds like the dvd door is stuck. Try using a paperclip in the small hole by the dvd door to open manually. Once opened then try to use the button to close. Hope this helps.

GO VIDEO model 1030....VCR works fine...DVD..nothing happens...door won't even open?


Combo units have this essential flaw--if one half fails you are usually done especially if the DVD side fails.

If Door does not open either a disc is jammed inside the mechanism or the mechanism is out of alignment or damaged.

Good argument against buying these units--DVD individual parts are rarely sold--only (if available) would be the entire DVD unit itself--not cost effective to repair.

DVD players are now real cheap (see some for as little as $20) so if not a simple jammed disc or something like that buy a DVD player.

I HAVE PROBLEMS WITH MY ACER ASPIRE M1100 COMPUTER,WHICH I PURCHASED IN 2008. SPECIFICALLY, THE DVD RAM IS NOT FUNCTIONAL AT ALL. THE CD RAM HOWEVER, IS WORKING JUST FINE. PLEASE, HELP ME FIX THIS...


You better check the DVD if this is recognized by going to My computer > Device manager > DVD/CD-ROM drive and see if mark as ( ? ) question mark. also check the IDE slot as well as cable if its properly attach or insert,try to change IDE cable at least. Check the power supply socket all going thru your DVD, might no supply or power entering the drive that's why it's not recognized.



Good luck.

RCA DVD player model DRC285


try sticking a knife on the top of the dvd slot. don't put a lot of pressure to break it though. turn the dvd player on, and it may open. If this solves the issue, try not to put items on top of the dvd player because it will cause it to stick and not open.
