Question about Sylvania DV220SL8 DVD Player/VCR

Open Question

Cannot adjust Tracking.

Greetings,

I have a Sylvania DVD/CD Player with Video Cassette Recorder. DV220SL8.

When I first purchased it last November, I tested everything out to make sure it would work. I then put it away as a spare for latter use.

The Vcr side of this Machine, when I record, will not track properly, all it does is jump. When I put in a Purchased Movie? The darn thing will either play perfectly, or on the next movie, it jumps, I cannot adjust the tracking.

Thank you,
Robert J. Benzing

SOURCE: my sylvania dv220sl8 won't retract dvd. any

1.you could unplug the unit for 30 seconds and then plug it in again.
2. if there is a pen hole in the front you will need a paper clip to insert carefully and then the door will release.
3. If you can remover the cabinet cover you can go in to the units drive and rotate the gear that ejects the transfer table for the DVD and retrieve your disk.

Why won't the DVD-RW disks FORMAT? I've seen others with the same problem with formatting multiple types of disks... Please help.


If you are using a Sylvania DV220SL8 DVD Player \ VCR combo (which this question is posted under the heading of) there is a very simple reason why you can't format DVD-RW disks. DVD Players can't do that. You need a DVD Recorder to format DVD's.

This applies to all comments under this heading as well. You can not record if the unit you're using does not have that capability. And this unit does not have it. You can record with the VHS VCR, but the DVD Player is just that... A Player. It's not a Recorder.

Toshiba DVD video recorder/video cassette recorder. The picture is unstable and jumps up and down on cassette playback in SLP mode.Adjusting the tracking does not make a difference.
