Trying to record to disc from VHS After recirding 8 copies, it now reads "Unknown disc, Please check disc" This is a Go-Video VR3845 Unit.


Hello,

I answered this question previously and the solution remains the same;

how long have you been using the player and has it ever accept blank DVD-R discs in the past.

The problem might be as a result of weak laser (lens) or the blank discs inserted might not be compatible with player.

When the laser(lens) of a player becomes weak, it will not be able to read blank discs. It only takes a very strong laser to read/accept blank discs. If it happens that the laser (lens) is the cause of the problem, then it means you will need to replace the laser (lens) to a brand new one to be able to read blank disc. Though the player might be playing DVD and CD, note that blank disc is stronger when it comes to reading from the laser (lens), it requires sharper laser. I hope you understand this.

So, insert a CD into the player and observe if it will play.If it plays, then its obvious that your laser is very weak.

Concerning the incompatibility issue, I hope you are aware that there are various kinds of empty DVD discs such as DVD +, DVD -, DVD RW. Try any of this empty DVD discs as one of them as to be compatible with this DVD recorder.

Amongst the two topics discussed above, one has to be the cause of the problem. So its up to you to figure out which is the cause of the problem.

I hope you understand the above....

I wish you good luck.

Can't record DVD's


Hello there.

As per http://www.videohelp.com/dvdrecorders/cinevision-rv4000/881
you can see that your DVD player only supports writing to DVD+R
or DVD+RW, not DVD-RW or DVD-R.


Hope this helps.

No Disc


I had this identical problem just after a year and a half of use. I tried cleaning the lens... that didn't change anything. I tried using movie discs that I knew had worked before.... same problem. I took the unit apart and found the problem. There 5 or 6 (I forgot exactly) capacitors on the power board that are black cylinder types with silver tops. If the tops look like they are bulging, then It requires changing capacitors on the power board. I ordered them through the internet, removed the old and installed the new capacitors. Now everything works great.


The capacitors are: 10v 2200uf 105-Degree Capacitors. They cost about 20 cents a piece.

Good luck.

Cyberhome 300 DVD Player: pal to ntsc mode?


You might want to reset to factory defaults, but there is an error in the manual. In order to reset to factory defaults, turn on (with no disc inside), DO NOT OPEN THE DISC TRAY, just press the stop button on the player for 5 seconds.
