Question about Emerson EWR20V4 DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

Could a dirty optical pickup unit effect the audio reception and output on my Emerson EWR29V4? Video is fine. Audio in playing a tape or disc is fine. Listening to TV though the unit is not acceptable and recording a tape or disc gives low audio.

SOURCE: Emerson DVd with Video Cassette Recorder EWR20V5

I purchased my EWR20V5 unit in December 2006. After 10 months usage it developed several problems

  1. Recording error message appears when trying to record onto DVDs.
  2. Playback error message appears when playing prerecorded disks (NetFlix, BlockBuster, etc.
  3. Playback error message sometimes appears when playing disks burned on this unit.
  4. I cannot finalize disks burned on this unit.
I've almost thrown this unit out several times, but I wasn't sure if I had to get the same unit to finalize my disks?. Is there a solution for all these problems?

Called the funai's service tech line at 1-800-605-8457. They will sell you a firmware update for 23.00 shipped that will allow it to use up to 8X DVD-RW. I'm using memorex 2X DVD-RW (RITEKW01) I got from walmart. They seem to work OK although dubbing on my deck doesn't seem to work. Probably unrelated.

Why does my Porche Cayenne six disc changer not recognise two of the CDs?


I have looked into this and can see no reason why The WHO would not play. My theory was that the album was not a pure CD but a mixed format disc. Some disks have a hidden track at the beginning which a computer can read but an audio CD play will skip. I thought perhaps your CD changer was getting confused. However Amazon say it's an Audio CD.

Can not get sound playing a vcr tape but can get sound playing a dvd please help


What connections are you using for the DVD and VCR output for both the video and audio?
If you are using a "digital" signal (such as optical audio/HDMI/etc) the VCR audio will not pass through these outputs. You will need to connect up the analog (red/white) RCA connectors on the back of your unit to hear the VCR audio
I hope this help, Magoo

I have a mini hifi sony mhc dx50 the 3 disc changer doesnt work it wont play any cds and says there is no cd in it when there is any ideas?


It may be a dirty laser lens, or the laser is worn enough that is can't read the discs any more. There are cleaning CDs available, but I haven't found them to work very well most of the time. The most effective way is to clean the lens with a cotton swab moistened with optical cleaning liquid. That means opening the unit to get to the lens, of course, and some Sonys are harder than others. It's not an impossible task, though.

If the player still doesn't read discs after cleaning the lens, the pickup probably is bad. There are other possible causes, but the pickup is the most common. Thanks for asking on Fixya!

How to connect dvd player to AV reciever


S-Video is a media type that only carries video. Unfortunately the LG unit was designed only to be a self contained surround sound unit. There are only video outputs to the television on this unit. Because of the unit having surround sound capabilities, LG felt that their wasn't a need for audio output. You would need to buy a new DVD player to allow audio from the DVD to your new Yamaha unit. Good Luck!

What causes disc format error ?


This is caused by copied discs, scratches on discs, dirty discs, or dirty optics inside the unit. Go to Walmart or a good audio shop and buy a CD optic cleaning disc. It has little brushes which clean dust off the laser lens.

Skips or won't play disc if even slightly scratched


Hello opie440,

The optics might be dirty or the pickup assembly might need alignment. In the former case you can get an optics cleaning kit and try to clean the laser LED and pickup assembly. For the latter cause you will need to have thre unit aligned at a TV repair shop.

CD's won't play


I know that Panasonic provides chips, optics (laser),etc. to Emerson. I am familiar with the problem you've experienced because I've had a Panasonic CD Player. If the disc doesn't spin (as you said), the problem must be that your shelf system probably has an optical problem (laser problem/pickup problem) and will need to be serviced.

Dvd recorder won't record on DVD-RW disc.


CLEANING THE DISC LENS ? If this unit still does not perform properly although you refer to the relevant sections and to ?TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE? in this Owner?s Manual, the laser optical pickup unit may be dirty. Consult your dealer or an Authorized Service Center for inspection and cleaning of the laser optical pickup unit. FROM EWR20V5 OWNERS MANUAL FUNAI-CORP.COM
