Question about Emerson EWR20V4 DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

Emerson DVD Recorder

I purchased an Emerson DVD Recorder with Video Cassette Recorder Model EWR2OV4. I have used it to record DVDs from video cassettes. I used an HP DVD-R disk with the R4.7 mark.

I then moved the DVD Recorder and connected it to another television. Afterwords I used a Sony DVD-R disk that did not have the R4.7 mark and the DVD Recorder did not record. After studying the manual I noticed that the R4.7 mark was essential. I then tried using an Imation DVD-R disk with the R4.7 mark and I cannot get it to format. Even though I am trying to record on the disk, the Recorder immediately tells me to, “Please eject the disk. Play back feature may not be available on this disk.” When I click on the Disc Menu, the Disc Menu does not appear. I am unable to format the disk. Since these worked the first time, I purchased more HP DVD-R disks with the R4.7 mark. Again it tells me to eject the disk because it will not play back and I cannot get the Disc Menu to appear.
Please tell me what I am doing wrong.

Re: Emerson DVD Recorder

Sounds like what your doing is correct, See if you can locate a reset button on it and reset it. Did you try connecting to the TV that it worked on previously? Let me know.

Be advised that this unit, the Go-Video DVR4300, is a combined VCR (video cassette recorder) and DVD Player; it does not record DVDs. Only a DVD Recorder unit will serve your need.

Instructions for recording to VCR from TV is in the manual.
