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?

    I tried the paperclip route but unfortunately it didn't work. Any other suggestions?

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.

How to use the usb port on Pioneer DV-410V DVD Player


Dear friends in problem solving.
My husband actually solved this problem by writing in the browser: Manual for Pioneer DV-410V DVD player.
That was available online and there it said that not all formats was supported by the USB port, so we tried to load a movie on a pen drive, insert it in the player and it opened and we just clicked play, so it was actually an issue of having an incompatible video file on the pen drive that made it not open in the first place.

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.
