Re: playback with noise
This can be digital noise generated by reading the disc incorrectly or more likely a problem with the D-A converter IC. Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that has no effect, this unit will need to be chacked by a service center to confirm the problem as the processing board.

1) Set your TV to channel 3. 2) Insert a pre-recorded tape into this unit. 3) Press the OUTPUT button on the DVD/VCR so that the VCR OUTPUT light is lit. • If noise appears on the TV screen, press the VCR/TV button on the remote control. 4) Press the PLAY button once. 5) After a few seconds, press the PLAY button on the DVD/VCR for 3 seconds. • The RF output channel will change to channel 3 from channel 4 and you will see a playback picture. • When a picture does not appear on the TV screen, repeat step . 6) Press the STOP button to stop playback.
When was the last time you ran the "head cleaning" tape in the machine? As tape collects dust and dirt - it gets deposited on the recording and playback heads. This ruins playback and recording quality. Also, since tape is magnetic - they tend to magnetize the heads, too (just like reel to reel, 8 track & cassette player / recorders). Demagnetizing them will help too. Here are links to both products:
According to the Vizio website, your VBR231 CAN play DVDs the same way a lot of Blu-Ray players can. The site blurb suggests the VBR231 is backwards compatible - which means your player should be able to play DVDs as well as Blu-Ray. Generally, most Blu-ray players can play DVDs if they are backwards compatible with them.
I do know Blu-Ray discs will NOT work in most standalone DVD decks.

There should be a DVD/VCR button on the remote control which will toggle the machine from one playback source to another. If she has pressed the VCR button then the machine will only playback tapes & not show DVD's. Press this button & the DVD's should play. If you look closely at the front window of the machine it will show what mode it is in ie VCR or DVD, set this for the DVD to get it to play.
On the front panel: REV Button (DVD)
Press to view the DVD picture in fast reverse motion
or to reverse playback of an Audio CD.
Press to skip Chapters or Tracks.
FWD Button (DVD)
Press to fast forward the Disc. Press PAUSE, then
press this button to begin slow motion playback.
Press this button repeatedly to change the forward
