Question about GoVideo VR3840 DVD Recorder/VCR

DVD does not recognize disc

I have a Panasonic TV/DVD/VCR Combination - PV-DF2004 and the DVD tries to read the disc and then says it does not recognize the disc and to put in another.  I have tried using a head cleaner and blowing out any dust without success.   Does anyone have any idea of what I would need to try for the next step.  I had put it on  Craigs List for $75 and when I found out the DVD did not work, I reduced the price to $50, but if I can fix the problem myself that would be a better solution.  If anyone can help me with this issue, I would be most appreciative or if you need more information to solve my problem, please email me.  Thank you.  CJ

    Appreciate your prompt response.   If I had to purchase a laser unit, do you have an idea what the cost maybe and whether it would be worth it on a 4 year old TV.

Hi..if a lense cleaner  dont solve the prolbem then you can replace the laser unit itself if that type of cleaning also dont work means and you think you are capable of taking the casing off make sure you switch it off first this should send the laser to the center of the laser tray if you take the case off and it is not in the center it might just be that it has got stucked sometimes gently pushing it back to the middle will get it working again if it is already in the middle then it could be that the laser needs replacing but if not in middle push gently dont shake the device too much it  should be quite hard to push any way when you push back to middle try a disk  but please make sure you dont touch anything while device is it is plugged in if nothing works then it probably is the laser but before you do anything as soon as you get the case off switch it on and put a dvd in and make sure the disk is spinning.. if its not spinning then ur laser unit is damaged..

thank u
rate me

Panasonic tv, vcr, dvd combo gets black rectangle with text in it. what do i do?


There should be a closed caption button on your remote control. You will want to go into the CC settings and turn off the TEXT mode as that is whats causing the black box to appear. Please take a few moments to rate my answer.. Thanks..

Wont play dvd's.


If this happens when you insert a DVD disc then most likely the laser assembly is failing in the DVD drive. In most cases it will probably still play CD's. The part number needed is LSVQ0087 and isn't cheap as seen on the following ebay posting. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks.

DVD player cannot read DVD disc.


Have you tried other DVD's in this unit and they work? If so it might be just an incompatibility issue with that DVD in your TV.

Remote code


Some remotes, such as the Sony RM-VL600, have a learning function that will "learn" the code for your set.  I used one for my combo unit, and it worked OK for the TV functions, but I couldn't get it to work for the DVD player.
