Question about Durabrand DUR7 Portable DVD Player
Hi, I just got a Sylvania SRD4900 dual deck DVD/VCR combo, and it will power on for a couple seconds and then shut itself off. It will not stay powered on for more than that.
The DVD player's light is green, and the VCR's light is red. The seller informed me that this was a brand new player but it may not be.
Thank you in advance for your help.
There's a problem with the tape drive, so it's shutting down to prevent damage to the tape. Someone familiar with VCR mechanisms would probably have to see it in action to identify what's wrong. Most of them act in a similar fashion, so if you have a working VCR, you can take the cover off and watch it load a tape, run it, rewind and eject, then compare with the non-working unit. The parts won't be interchangeable, but the tape loading will look much the same. You can comment on what happens and I can try to explain what I think is going on. Better yet, if you could post a video of the internal mechanism while it tries to load a tape, that would be very helpful.

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
