The fact that a certain format did work once indicates it most likely is the infamous "reset" problem we are experiencing with our Sansui--the same model that you have. This appears to be memory"reset" issue since firmware instructions work fine with formats allowed, per instruction manual. Especially, if your dvd player fails to read upon disk insertion. There were some appended instructions with my unit--stating a 45 second delay required for reading the disc if I recall correctly--something to that effect. However, this will not usually correct the power "reset" issue. It has been suggested elsewhere to unplug the dvd player for 30 minutes, then try again. This momentarily corrects at least some of the problem. I would think that 5 or 10 minutes unplugged would be plenty of time for bleeding off corrupted (or overloaded?) memory issues. It's interesting that our other unit--the same model purchased at the same time--never had this problem. Still looking for answers myself... Good luck!

Try cleaning the optics with one of those DVD cleaners.
When that probably doesn't work, you can hand clean the optics if you can figure out how to get at them. (easy on some, hard on others) If that doesn't work, it is prbably not worth going any farther

I have a Sansui model VRDVD4005. When I put a DVD


I think you need to take it to the service center, because there's nothing that you can do all by your self.The problems starts from the optical lens/ laser pick up, replacing the lens could be necessary.

Cannot format a dvd-rw disc or record to the disc.


Unless you posted this question in the wrong category, you can't use the Sansui VRDVD4000 to record to DVD. It is a DVD player only, not a DVD burner. It will play and record VHS tapes, but with DVDs it will only play them.

To record to a DVD, you would need a DVD burner. Many modern computers include a DVD burner, so maybe either your computer or someone you know's computer has a DVD burner.

DVD-RW will not record. Using Memorex DVD-RW and get the "Incorrect disc C104" message. Where can I get the correct disc and what are they? these used to work, but the new ones don't.


I have the same machine and I've used Memorex DVD-RW 2X/4.7gb/120min dvd's for a long time. The newer ones at Officemax are 4x, 8x, 16x and 52x they won't work. I think they have to be 2x only!!!

Solutions to incorrect disk error c105 & c104


Hello gjbrokke,

First make sure the disc is compatible with the dvd player (CD-R+ , or CD-R - )

Second make sure the region code of the dvd you burned is compatible with the dvd region settings on your dvd player.

One of those two are preventing the disc from playing in your sansui player.

Where can you find the 1-2X DVD, I have only been able to find 1-4X and none of these work.
