Question about GoVideo Go Video DVD/VCR Combo

1 Answer

GO,VIDEO ISSUE. DVD SOMETIMES PLAYS,EVERYOTHER OR SO.

STRANGe thing?
This is dvd/vhs type unit, GO,VIDEO system.
We put the dvd in and it runs, then again another dvd and nothing. It comes up with can not read dvd.
I looked through some of these listings and saw a note about the spinning of dvd so the machine can read the dvd.
I will listen for that problem, Yet, it does run some and then not others, about 50% it will not read.
Have any other of you run into this Odd problem?
Maybe the spinner is starting to go out completly?
Maybe dust or something has caused a clitch that comes and goes?
Any ideas would be good. I can certianly crack the box open and replace a part or so.
I thought maybe somebody ran into this type/same issue.
Thanks for any help.
Happy new years.

This is a common problem, bit only with Go video but with many DVD players that are in the 50-200 dollar range. It might be a bad disk, as the machine does play some disks.
More than likely it is a Codec issue. Each machine shipped, has software loaded with the latest codecs for playing movies, but they change and add codecs so often. If the newer codecs are on the disk, then the machine will not know how to read it. Try it in another machine or your computer and it just might work. I have the same problem with a few disks that I can think of, Sin City will not play on my computer, even with the newest codecs, yet it plays fine in my DVD. Other disks will play fine in the computer, yet the standalone DVD will not play them. It boils down to copy protection and the evils that that entails.

Best Regards,

Charles

Says no disc when i put in a dvd. dvd is new and clean, still won't work.


Hello
Put a video CD and see whether it reads and plays. If it also does not plays, or if video CD only plays and not DVD; in both cases; the Laser Pickup Unit is faulty and should be replaced with same type and number. OK.

Which disc can be used to recrord on ?


According to the user manual, the following DVD media you can record with this unit are:

RECORDING: TYPES OF DISCS YOU CAN USE FOR RECORDING

DVD+R 2.4x, 4x, or 8x ONLY; DVD+RW 2.4x and 4x ONLY.

NOTES:
It is NOT possible to record on CD-R or CD-RW discs.
IMPORTANT: It is NOT possible to record content that is copy-protected. This is usually true for most pre-recorded DVD discs and most pre-recorded VHS tapes.

PLAYBACK: TYPES OF DISCS YOU CAN PLAY

DVD discs - DVD movie discs (DVD-ROM); DVD+R; DVD+RW; DVD-RW (must be recorded using video mode or VM); DVD-R (must be recorded using video mode or VM and must be finalized).
CDs (Audio CDs, CD-R, CD-RW) - Audio CDs contain musical or sound content only. mp3 discs are CDs (CD-R or CD-RW)
that contain mp3 files. This product also plays CDs that contain JPEG files and Multisession CDs.
Video CD (VCD) and Super Video CD (S-VCD) discs - Like DVD video discs, VCDs contain picture and sound content. The difference is the amount of information that can be stored on the disc.
VCDs typically have lower picture and sound quality than DVD discs.
Super Video CDs (S-VCDs) can be used to record up to 70 minutes of digital sound and video, with MPEG-2 standard video and MPEG-1 standard audio-but you must use DVD+R or DVD+RW discs to record on your DVD/VCR not S-VCDs.
Additionally, S-VCD disc compatibility is dependent on which MPEG coding software, disc design software, and disc writer software are used; and the discs themselves.

(The above information is extracted from the user manual for this particular model and is a guide only)

I find it very strange that the user manual does not provide any information about DVD-R recording since this is a DVD recorder. I guess you could try those types of discs in it, otherwise it will playback finalised DVD-R discs recorded/burned in another machine.

I assume you have the original manual for this unit. If not, you may be able to download it free from various sites. (retrevo may have it but they may ask you for email address prior to downloading)

I hope the above information helps a tiny bit with regard to DVD formats for this unit.

VHS plays in colour and DVD plays in black and white.


there is a circuit in the color section to put the tv to black and white if the color subcarrier is missing from the broadcast signal.
it is called a color killer and needs to be adjusted.
it is for a technician to do.
it operates off the 3.58mhz color subcarrier.

Only dvd plays properly but vhs will not show picture.


Most likely you have the dvd part connected through component or svideo cables. Despite the fact that this is one unit, like other vcr/dvd combo units it acts as two separate units in the same box. The vcr will probably not play through those cables. As you have audio coming through I'd imagine that the audio is connected using red and white composite cable. Connect the video on the vcr side with composite yellow cable or run direct to tv with a coaxial cable.

CD and DVD disks use a different set of optics for each type of operation. Some units have a different laser for the different format types.

The fault could be mechanical alignment, calibration, or a failure in the signal and or processor path. These types of faults are impossible to guess at.

If the unit is under warranty, contact the dealer to find out how to get it serviced. If out of warranty it may not be feasible to service.
