    Unit is SAN0218-250GB DVD+RW Recorder. While watching a DVD my niece put it on pause and forgot it. Much later I tried to use it and it would not respond to any commands. I unplugged it for10- 15 mins then plugged it back in. It still would not respond, there was nothing in the display screen and a red light came on around the ch+-/rec on off switch. It will not respond to any command including holding the stop button in or unplugging for any amount of time.

You may want to contact Sansui direct @ http://www.sansui-global.com/english/contactus.php but I don't think you'll get anywhere! They don't have a great support system for their products as far as I can see.
Some DVDs and a lot of other things are built to break easily, offering no repair or troubleshooting support, and it's a shame!
When I find I've purchased such a product and it doesn't even pay to have it fixed (always worth getting an estimate though) I like to take it into the garage, put it on the bench and sludge hammer it to death or scavenge it for parts!

This is due to an attempted recording that has stored files in the memory,You will need to remove the cover and take out the internal battery for a few minutes so the files in the memory will be deleted.

This can sometimes be done by unplugging the unit and holding the power button(while it is unplugged) until the unit de energizes(you will see the light come on and fade out)

The main control has initiated protect mode. this may happen when the actual lens has burned out. when a DVD is left in the loading dock in the still mode function for to long, this will cause a reflective effect that will burn the lens out immediately. the main control will shutdown the entire dvd system during this event. unfortunately, it will have to be repaired by the manufacture in order to release the protect mode that exist.

Hold the power button down while removing the power cord from the back of the unit. Now plug the power cord back in and restart the machine. Give it time to reboot.
All better?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, unplug from the mains for an extended period of time. This is to revert the unit back to factory default and simulate a reset. Should that not be corrective, then pls:

  • post back to confirm if it is a Sansui VRDVD5000 DVD Recorder / VCR Combo;
  • if it is still under warranty;
  • if you are considering a DIY (do-it-yourself); and
  • if you a re familiar with electronic components & circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron.
If not, then consider to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.Pls post back as requested.

    Honestly, not exactly sure in your case...but from my extensive experience with VCRs, leaving the unit on pause for an extended period of time can burn out the motor. When a "catastrophic" event like that occurs it can shut down the entire unit. Take it to an authorized repair shop. Sorry, there is not too much anyone here can do for you.

I want to record Turner Classic Movies from my cable to a dvd. I then want to edit out parts I don't want. Some movies are good but have just a few scenes that are not appropriate for family viewing....


The dvd recorder will not automatically edit out parts you don't want to see....the easiest way is to watch the movie live and if you know the part you don't want to record, press pause during the part and resume when it's done. Otherwise you will have to load the whole movie from dvd to your computer, get an editing software and cut out the scenes you don't want. There are lots of these simple programs on the market and some are even free.
Quickest way is to watch it real time and push pause on the objectionable parts.
Hope this helps.

I am trying to copy a VHS to DVD from a VHS player. I have a Sony VRD-MC6 multi-function DVD Recorder. I am using the A/V cable and have verified that they are correctly placed. The Sony player will...


Is it possible the VHS you're trying to copy is copy-protected? Apparently, the MC6 displays "waiting for signal" when you're attempting to copy a copy-protected (commercial) video. I had success converting my own homemade VHS tapes. I just bought my MC6, and thought I'd pass along some tips I got from others: You know you're recording when a red ring around the large Record button lights up and it actually says "recording" on screen, and adjust HQ to SP to get 2-plus hours of video on the DVD.

I have a Magnavox ZV427MG9. I follow all directions in manual for dubbing VHS home movies to DVD but when I try to play the DVD back there's nothing on them.What am I doing wrong?


Depending on the procedure you may be pressing the record button instead of the D.Dubbing or Dubbing button. When recording from VHS to DVD you must first, load the blank DVD and VHS home movies, then play the VHS movies, then PAUSE the VHS movie when you want to START recording... then the only the you have to do is pressing the D.Dubbing button or the Dubbing button. If your VHS tapes starts to play after the Dubbing button is pressed you have been successful in Dubbing.

DVD pauses in the middle of the movie


who ever told you that well... doesnt know dvd players very much no mater what wene ever you watch a movie or anything there is no data transfer back to the cd it is a one way process unless you were burning the dvd which you would not be able to watch it at that time. as for the pausing thing take a soft cloth and clean the cd then get a can of compressed air and blow it into the slots to make sure that it is clean inside the machine. if that does not work then your problem is with the dvd. does it do it with other dvd's or just that one?

Dubbing vhs to dvd


If you try and record a video with copygaurd it will only record a tiny section. If you press stop or return for 3 seconds you will cancel the recording, try pressing the pause button you edit out adverts, i have not tried this yet but it might work.

Dvd video player


Your DVD player is having a problem reading the disc. This is what is accounting for the pausing and the slow loading times...especially if it plays other movies without hitches. Even if the DVD is cleaned, some scratching on the disc will prevent it from being viewed properly. Blockbuster shoudl give you another disc to try of the same movie if you ask. Also, you can try getting a cleaner for your DVD player to remove dust and help it read discs better.

DVD player froze, now only turns off


Sounds like the power supply in the dvd player has failed. It works just well enough to turn on the led infront but as soon as you go to do anything it shuts off. This is common in cheaper dvd players. Unless you can troubleshoot electronics. Or know someone that can. Your best bet is to unplug the unit and disassemly and retrieve your dvd.
