Question about GoVideo Go Video VR3840 DVD Recorder/VCR
I like to share a piece of info that I believe might help you
Complaints about the VR3840 pepper online discussion boards and blogs, with users saying that the DVD player freezes or shuts off in the menu section when a user attempts to play recent DVD releases. GoVideo now provides a firmware update fix for customers to install, saying in a statement on its Web site: "GoVideo is offering an upgrade to the VR3840/VR5940 that allows certain Sony Pictures, Columbia Pictures, or Revolution Studios Movies to play without delay."
According to DVD player manufacturers contacted for this story, these three studios all have introduced copy protection that goes beyond the industry's default Content Scrambling System (CSS) antipiracy protection.
So far I couldn't find 1800 number but I have GoVideo's regular number that you may try to call it +1-314-621-3314

Have you tried your DVD recorder on another socket? If you have and your sure the socket or electrical current is not the problem, maybe the DVD is heating up to much. You can try to place a small fan on its back, or if you feel confident, open it and clean its dust and see if there is something stucked or not working

the VR3845 on a whim, at a local Costco because of the DVD/VHS combo
feature and the price. After 7 months the VR3845 suddenly wouldn't read
DVD's anymore, even ones I'd recorded the night before. The GoVideo Web
site was of no help and I'm now facing wasting hours of my time to get
a replacement or my money back, assuming I can.
Other "features", you can only switch recording channels at the minute. That means you record, say 8pm to 9pm on channel 5, but you can't program the unit to record from 9pm to 10pm on a different channel. The programming interface will only let you start the next recording on a new channel at 9:01PM, so you lose the first minute of your program.
At the end of a programmed recording session the VR3845 automatically shuts off. If you're watching another channel while recording, suddenly all you see is static until you power up the VR3845 again.
Sorry Man but this thing just isn't worth it I would take it back.
