LG DVD/VCR Combo - Won't read DVDs - Door Just Opens & Closes

I have seen multiple posts on the Internet for this same problem, but no solutions for the problem. I called LG customer support, but they weren't able to fix the problem. Does anyone know how to fix the issue? Since it is a known issue, will LG service the unit free of charge?

You have a bad micro switch in the DVD door. The switch developes a dead spot overtime and it messes up the door logic causing the door to open. Here is the replacement switch if you are good at opening things up and sodering.

Dvd draw wont open without the remote


VCR combo?? I had to check the date on this post to see if it was from 1990. Do you still view VCR recordings? If not, then trash it and get a DVD player. I've seen them for less than $20 new.

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.

I cannot play DVDs.


This brand is already out in business.

A firmware upgrade is needed to make your GoVideo reads the dvds.

If you can post here the model number of your DVD/VCR, maybe we can help you find the last firmware update that the manufacturer released before they shutdown their business.
