    Thanks for your help. I had checked the 5 volt rail and it was low. All other voltages were as specified. The capacitor C4 looked fine, but on substitution the 5 volt rail was restored and the unit works fine. thanks again

Hi Christbc,
This sounds like a major power supply fail. Fortunately most of the voltages are present on the power supply when the unit is in standby. The ones that are controlled by the STANDBY/ON button are 12V and 5V which can be measured on connector CN3. The STANDBY/ON control line to the power supply board is labeled P/L on connector CN2. In the standby mode the 5V line should be 0V, the 12V line should be 0V and the P/L line should also be 0V. In the on mode the P/L line rises to 3.1V, the 5V line goes to 5V, the 12V line goes to 12V. All the other voltages should be approximately as listed on the board whether in STANDBY or ON. (+FL= -19V and -FL= -22V). The probable fault is the capacitor C4 which filters the 5V line and it can be found near the rectifier diode D2. and the transformer.
Good luck.

Turn the power on. to get rid of the red light you need to press the timer/rec button on the remote until it turns off. the red light means it is programed to record.

SOURCE: Sansui SAN0901 DVD Recorder - Power Problem

Hi Pandjoy,
I have been struggling with the same problem and almost rebuilt the power supply before finding the solution. In my case it was a faulty capacitor-C4, next to the diode D4. Replacing C4 and the machine performed as new. I hope this helps. Cheers

How do I set the recording speeds on the vcr without a remote control?


Unfortunately, you need the remote control to do this. You can get a replacement remote with all of the features here: http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=gmi&uuid=12937528570080&smodel=VRDVD4001&brand_pn=SANSUI_VRDVD4001 . There are a couple of other versions of the Sansui VRDVD4001 and their remotes are also available from remotes.com. Search on the model but not the brand name.

Even the timed recording menu which doesn't need the speed button doesn't have a button on the front panel of the unit.

I wish that I had better news.

I would like to make a copy from my video tape to a DVD How do I do it?


Turn on the TV and set it to the video source to be able to easily see the menus as you set up the dubbing process. Put the source tape you want to record in the VCR. (Copy protected tapes will not be dubbed.) If you want to avoid dubbing from the DVD to the VHS tape, remove the erase protection tab from the cassette. Put a compatible recordable disc (non-finalized disc, unprotected disc) in the recorder and make sure there is sufficient available capacity on the disc.

Press Rec Mode/Speed to set the speed (SP, LP, SLP, or XP). Press DVD/VCR and set the unit to VCR mode. Confirm the mode with the indicator light on the unit. Press Dubbing and the mode should switch to DVD automatically. Select Yes (with the left/right arrows) and press Enter to start the duplication. The unit should indicate the VCR playback, dub and DVD recording are in progress. Press Stop to halt the dubbing process or it will stop when the unit reached the end of the tape or the disc is full.

The dubbing button is only on the remote control; if your original remote isn't working make sure that your replacement remote has the feature. Remotes.com often has exact or substitute remotes with the matching features. Search just by the model number not the brand.

BTW: the manual is available here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/26967/SANSUI-DVD-VCR-Combo-L0311311?brand_name_search=sansui+VRDVD4005 .

I hope this helps.

Sansui vrdvd5000 no manual no remote anyone know how to record vhs to dvd


I believe the VRDVD4005 manual (which is the same as the VRDVD5000) is available on a Sears sponsered website called managemylife.com. I hope this helps you. The customer service number should be on the back of the unit to order a remote.
