Question about Sylvania DVR90VE DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

Sylvania DVR9OVF I can not even find this model # listed. When I put in a new DVD it says on the screen "Disc Error, Play back feature may not be available on this disc." If I put in an old DVD it works fine. What is that all about.

Re: sylvania DVR9OVF

You have the wrong number model. The model number is not DVR9OVF.... It is DVR9OVE. I have the same problem. I called the 800 number because I buaght a 50 pack of dvd's at Office Depot (Ativa Reg. $29.99 GREAT SALE PRICE FOR $9.99)and it gave me an error "disk is not recordable" E24. They told me this dvd supports a limited dvd disk brand....Maxell, Memorex, TDK, JVC, and Sony, so I am returning them to the store. I know Sony does work because I used those before.

Disc Error:

Take it back to the store if its new or if you bought a warranty and trade it for a new one. If not try calling an electronic store and ask them if they know whats wrongs with it. Be sure to read the instruction manuel for a support phone number and call there too.

I'm having an odd problem with my Sylvania DVR90VE. My new DVD of Transformers Revenge of the Fallen's second special features disc will only play some selections on the disc, not most. It's a 7.8GB disc...

> Do I need to update the firmware?
If you are lucky; Sylvania is a branch of Funai which is the 'bottom of the barrel' on quality so it may be just another case of Funai-ism.
Other brands belonging to Funai:
Symphonic, Emerson, Aventura, Durabrand, ESA, Magnavox, INSIGNIA, Philips and Misakai
I earned part of my income from servicing consumer electronics some years ago and historically, Funai gear has been among the worst built.

Disc error "playback feature may not be available on this disc"

the message you are getting is the machines waay of telling you that it can not read that disc. which means you will have to burn your discs in a different format. or your are using a type of disc it does not recognize.

Disk error message

In the manual there is a list of discs the unit wil play. On the last pages there is a quick reference. There are also region codes that need to be set. Maybe a power outage reset your settings. Also it would be good to know if this unit played disc previously, plays other disks? Or the discs play on other players. It could just be a dirt problem as well.

Manual is available here;

New dvd movie will not play

I rented Rush Hour 3 from blockbuster along with Woodcock and both did not play on my Sylvania DVD player. I did take them and put them on my computer and their was a page that came up INTERACTUAL
This DVD is enhanced with interactive features designed exclusively for use on a computer.
PLAY DVD with enhanced features (that prompted a download)
or PLAY DVD without enhanced features and you can play the DVD movie on your small home computer screen.
I believe that the DVD producers have added the ENHANCED FEATURES to be used on a computer and in so doing they do not work at least not on the Sylvania DVD players.
