To be clear, every time you turn on the DVD player, your getting the SETUP menu on the screen and it wont go away?

I would of course, read the manual, but if no help, Look for the menu button on the remote and see if pressing it will make it go away or at least atry navigating through and setting any settings.

This isnt usually required with DVD players, usually you can just accept the defualt settings and start playing a DVD.

Are you usiung a Cable T.V. universal remote at all? If so, some times they dont get programed right by the cable company or you have to press the right source button, I.E. DVD, T.V. CABLE,Satalite etc. depending on what device you are using or want to use.

If you have reason to suspect that the DVD player itdelf is faulty, take it back if its under warranty, if not, start testing on another Television and begine torubleshooting what the issue may be.

Of course, makes sure everything is connected properly. A/V cables should gor the the output of the DVD to the input in back of the T.V. orin front a/v if available and you just want wires hanging out the front of your t.v., thats up to you.

Make sure that the T.V. is also set up properly and that the menu your seeing is in fact the DVD player and not the T.V.'s set up menu.

Let us know and good luck

    you may have to use the set up utility to get it off your screen or program channels sometimes putting dvd in will clear it but there is usually a reason(input) that is needed to finish hope this helps

Just start holding down "Enter" and "1", then "Enter" and "2", "Enter" and "3" on the remote, then switch to the reverse sequence (3, 2, 1), and after a few cycles,  - the remote will start working and you  will be  able to cycle through the setup process.

also check out this   the a/v cables plugged into the front TV connectors, note that there are a/v connectors in the back of the TV, those ones being the audio/video IN connectors where you should have put them in the first place

Can I watch tv with the timer on the dvd recorder turned on?


Hook up the cable wire that comes directly from the wall to the dvd recorder's in connection, then get a 3 ft cable cord and connect from the out of the dvd recorder to the in on the tv. You should be able to set the dvd recorder channel and timer and leave it off. you then should be able to have your tv on and watch any station but to watch the tv with dvd recorder on, your tv should be set to either channel 3 or 4 depending on the switch on back of dvd recorder. I hope this solves your problem. Foxpaw13

Dvdr tray


You have one of the following problems:
  • The device freezes and does not react anymore to the remote control commands.
  • The DVD is stuck in the tray. Sometimes the message BLOCKED appears.
  • A feature is not available in the menu without any logical reason.
  • A feature of the device does not work (for example start install).
  • There is some problem with the device you cannot solve.

Reset the DVD recorder.
  1. Unplug the mains cord from the mains wall outlet.
  2. Press the POWER/ON button on the DVD recorder itself.
  3. While keeping the POWER/ON button pressed connect the main power cord to the wall outlet again. A message IS TV ON? or a demo message will appear in the display.
  4. Start the first installation process.

Notes:
    1. The settings of the DVD recorder will return to their default settings. Install the DVD recorder as if it came out of the box.
    2. The data on the hard disc will not be affected.

Leaves blank TV screen when Return button operated


It sounds as though the unit is actually recording a DVD, but is getting no incoming signal to record. What is your recording source? Satellite and receiver? Antenna? Cable box? In the set-up menu, be sure you have chosen the proper input source; i.e., recording from where? You may be able to access that menu through the Function button on the remote, AFter setting that menu, be sure to press Return to restore the recorder to the ready mode. If you are using the RF input for recording, be sure that is selected as well, as opposed to L1 or L2. The input channel must match the output channel on your receiver, usually channel 3 or four. What is the model number?

Sylvania SRD4900 DVD/VCR combo problem


Hi I am Temperance MI and I see this mode in my shop often, does any onscreen menu come up when using the remote and
going into menu? If not maybe the remote is bad, common just
a loose battery lead, If you are able to go into menu, and set the
clock, but unable to set timer record, look closely at you recordable tape to make sure on the left bottom from corner the
the recording tab is in place, You can place scotch tape over this hole of existing tab to ensure it will go into record. Finally
if it wont go into record when you try to use OTR, you
make a problem with the record ready switch in the VCR section. Joe . East Electronics, Temperance MI
