SOURCE: dvd player will not read disk

have you tried getting a lense cleaner as they sometimes get alot of dust and will stop signal from disk to the laser if this dont solve the prolbem then you are looking at replacing the laser unit itself if the cleaning dont work 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 jammed now 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 gerk it it should be quite stiff to push any way when you push back to middle try a disk with the casing off but please make sure you dont touch anything whislt 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 not laser unit is nakered and need replacing let me know how you get on hope this is some help to you

SOURCE: GoVideo VR3840 will not Finalize

Clean the laser unit by using a cleaning DVD. This should shore up the problem if it don't try using another brand of Disc maybe you had got a bad batch.

Initalizing DVD-Rs


are you using a quality brand of dvd-r like memorex.

Also after making a recording you must finalize the disc you recorded so it will play on other players.

Unknown disc, please, check disc again


I'm afraid it looks like this machine will only record on DVD-R disks not DVD R. See page 9 of the manual (link below to download): http://www.govideo.com/Download/VR3840_manual.pdf Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
