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

Good Luck

Hi.
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

    You can also try to leave it unpluged a long time (could be 10 hrs).

    *Do you know if there is a CD inside?

I bought 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.

GoVideo vr 2940 DVD drawer will not open. It has a DVD in it.


Pull the power plug from the unit. Wait a minute, then plug it back in. If it still won't open, you'll have to take the player apart to get it out, UNLESS it has the eject port on it - some do. Look around the DVD drive for a small hole, about the diameter of a paper clip. If you find one, straighten a paper clip, unplug the player from power, then use the straightened paper clip by pushing it straight in to the hole, which should trigger the emergency release.

Good luck.
