Question about GoVideo VR3840 DVD Recorder/VCR

Open Question

VR3840 turns off on it's own

When I power up my VR3840 Combo machine it says "please wait" and after about a minute then shuts down. I can't open the DVD door. I've tried to manually open the door as suggested in one of the posts but there is still no success. The DVD drive seems to respond to DVDs, but does not fully start up or show anything on the TV. PLEASE HELP!!!

SOURCE: DVD won't recognize the disk message below

Try running a DVD cleaner through it and see what happens. You can get one at Walmart for under $10. If that doesn't do the trick then take it to someone that can open it up to clean it.

SOURCE: Cannot open door

belt is loose or gear is broke, if out of warranty you can try to force it or open the cover and see if you can push the door.

Most likely either the door motor is worn out or it needs to be pryed open with a paper clip, pulled back all the way, and then hit eject button to see if it retracts.

WONT RUN


I bought the VR3845 on a whim, at a local Costco because of the DVD/VHS combo feature and the price. After 7 months the VR3845 suddenly wouldn't read DVD's anymore, even ones I'd recorded the night before. The GoVideo Web site was of no help and I'm now facing wasting hours of my time to get a replacement or my money back, assuming I can.

Other "features", you can only switch recording channels at the minute. That means you record, say 8pm to 9pm on channel 5, but you can't program the unit to record from 9pm to 10pm on a different channel. The programming interface will only let you start the next recording on a new channel at 9:01PM, so you lose the first minute of your program.

At the end of a programmed recording session the VR3845 automatically shuts off. If you're watching another channel while recording, suddenly all you see is static until you power up the VR3845 again.

Sorry Man but this thing just isn't worth it I would take it back.

Powers on flases wait only


Maybe you need to wait sometimes for about five minutes to allow for autotuning seeing that it is a DVD/VCR combo. If after minutes it still asks you wait then you have an initialisation fault where it needs to be reflashed or repaired.

GoVideo VR3840 will not Finalize


Clean the laser unit by using a cleaning DVD. This should shore up the problem if it don't try using another brand of Disc maybe you had got a bad batch.

The power shuts off after a few minutes


There could be several factors. Are there any indication or failure lights/codes prior to the unit shutting down? You didn't mention where the unit is located. Does it initially start to read the disc then shut down or is there no activity at all? Please respond with some additional info & we'll go from there.
