Advent dvd player

In our infinite wisdom, we put 2 dvd's in the player, one on top of another and now the player will not work.

Any ideas?

Advent problems

Dear Stephanie,

Check at the rear of your DVD player or in its manual which region is it set to. It has a symbol that resembles a globe with a number inside.

In the U.S., players are set for region 1. Latin America and Australia for region 4. Europe and Middle East for region 2 and so on. Please check:

Maybe you are trying to use a DVD for region 2 (from Europe) in a DVD player in U.S., that only accepts region 1 discs. Please, check the label on your DVD or the back of its box.

Another reason could be that you are trying to play a recorded DVD in a format that is not read by your device, like DVD-R or DVD+R.

Hope you may find this information useful!

Best regards,

Miguel Luiz Martins

Where can i get a new remote for my sanyo dvw6100 dvd/vcr player

Sorry, you can't. SANYO in their infinite wisdom, decided not to stock after market spare accessories for their products. I suggest a universal remote but those are limited in function and sometimes hard to use even without a code. The only option is to try and find another combo unit (good used ones can be found on places like craigslist, eBay, etc.) either online or in a local secondhand shop. The price depends on the age and specifications of the unit (at least it may have its original remote in working order which helps a tad).

The only good news about this is this will not cost you a trip to any service centre; you keep your SANYO. According to another forum I read recently, SANYO no longer services their products nor do they offer after market accessories/parts, most agents who are meant to repair such items, won't even touch SANYO.

Can't dub from VHS to DVD. Tried 16x DVD+R, which the book says should work.

Yea, I tried this to. The movie people, in their infinite wisdom, put an encoding on the tapes so you cannot make a copy of "their" work.

You should be getting an error like this or at the least that the recording will not start.

I gave up since there are only a very few that this will work for.

Every disc is a "Bad Disc".

This is due to faulty DVD lens/head. Try cleaning it with DVD/CD hed cleaning CDs.If still the problem persists, contact near by service center for replacing the faulty Lens.

I agree, made the same mistake and settled for the cheaper ADVENT solution even though a friend warned me suggesting one from Invision. Check out: the SL 7 for my wife’s Ford Edge and the Invision system is worth every penny! Best of luck.

1}DVDR 3480 playback on many Dvds widescreen insteadof 4.3 as set. 2) my Vcr. has 3pin phono. Dvdr scart to Phono .Xt2 says nosignal. Phono tophono (cam socket) no signal .cannot copt tape to DVD. 3)B W...

1) The 4:3 / 16:9 option only optimises playback for that particular type of TV. The 4:3 setting also allows you to set the output between:

  • 4:3 PS - expands the picture vertically and horizontally which gets rid of the black bars, but you also lose the left and right edges of the picture.
  • 4:3 LB - Letterbox format, displays the full picture from the disc, with black bars top and bottom.
The PS option loses the bars on 16:9 widescreen DVDs, but may still leave bars on true cinema widescreen DVDs, which are 21.7:9
This is normal.
  • 16:9 - Optimises the picture for a widescreen TV. Again True cinema widescreen DVDs will still have black bars.
2) All of the external inputs will show "No signal" until there is actually a signal playing into them.
EG to copy VHS to DVD, you will need to select the relevant scart or phono input, and press play before the recorder will register a signal and allow recording.
Some bought VHS videos have copy protection, and may cause problems when copying to DVD.

3) Greenish playback maybe caused by colour setting on TV being too high. Also check Hue or Tint settings on the TV, if it has them.

4) For some reason, in their infinite wisdom, Philips omitted the Video Plus facility from this model.

Panasonic DVD recorder DMRES46V

Hi, sometimes if the disc is not completely flat in the tray, I get the same problem. Pretty low tech, but sometimes works!

Pioneer dvd recorder dvr 310

I've seen this problem somewhere before, ran across it on a service call or something and I just can't remember where.. Just getting old I guess.. You should have a "Return" button on the remote. Press it and the "2"... That should allow you to access the unit again. What you've done basically is set the unit up as unit 2 and you could have as many as 3 identical units all operating from the same remote. So, Pioneer, in their infinite wisdom decided to make three specific designation points and allow you to switch the remote to access each one without disturbing the rest... If this doesn't solve the problem you might try calling Pioneer support, 800-421-1404 and they should clearly be able to help. Good Luck Bill
