Go Video DVR4200 DVD not working

The DVD player is not working on my Go Video DVR4200. When I put a VHS tape in the DVD drawer opens automatically. With the VHS out the DVD drawer does not open with the remote, but it does with the button on the unit. When a DVD is placed in the unit no signal is detected and drawer does not alway respond to the button on the unit. Can you help me fix the problem?

If it is new, best advice is to take it the Comapny Service Centre, as you are having Warranty.

SOURCE: DVD Drawer / VHS Eject button

My 1st suggestion is to pull the AC power plug from the wall, wait 5 minutes (have a smoke or a coffee) and plug it back in.
Then retry the functions that are giving you grief.
Report back with the results and we'll go from there.

** Please re-comment if the suggestion did not work for you, there may be several other possibilities.

SOURCE: copy a vhs to a dvd on govideo dvr4200

This model is a DVD player only. It does not record to DVD's. You would need to get a model that has a DVD recorder.

SOURCE: recording from vhs to dvd

Direct copy VCR to DVD:
- Insert VHS tape you want to copy
- Insert a recordable DVD disc
- Press DVD copy button on front panel or remote control (to DVD).
- To stop recording press the stop button.

IMPORTANT: If attempting to copy copyrighted material the Samsung DVD-VR320 will detect the encoding and will not allow the copy to be made.

A VHS tape is stuck in my TV/VHS combo unit.

I'm sorry to say that the solution as stated is not correct. This condition usually occurs because of belts that are slipping. In order to remove the tape, some dis-assembly is required. If you have not done this in the past, I would not suggest that you attempt this repair. This repair should cost about $10 in parts plus labor. It is possible that the IR LED is defective as well which can also cause this. This is a common failure and should be a simple repair for any shop.

Copying VHS to DVD

some of these things are very fussy as to what blank dvd media you have put in them. try a few other brands. On my philips you can designate what signals are going to and from each connection so go through your manual again checking all your input/output connections are correct and you have selected the right function

VHS tape plays for a few seconds and automatically ejects

My guess would be dirt on the rollers inside the VCR. They sesnse a jam and ejct. Try a VCR cleaner (with cleaning fluid) and see if that helps.

Need to copy VHS to DVD. I have a Go Video DVR4200 model

The name of the GoVideo DVR4200 is a bit misleading. It is NOT a "DVR". It will only record DVD ->VCR and any "protected" DVD will not record. There are some hacks out there for this unit but be careful because some of them have been known to kill the DVD player.

The 4200 has been out for quite some time as I had bought one for a family member some years ago.
