Question about Televison & Video

I own a Go Video DVR4000, which has worked fine for years. Recently, I had a series of digital pictures recorded on a disc. For some unknown reason I cannot view them on my TV. The discs work ok on a friend's player, but not mine.Other cd's work on my 4000. Can you help me?

    In other words, there's no solution to my problem

    What does difference of media mean?

  • spinoso Feb 18, 2008

    Don't understand "different type of media", different recorder". You mean buy a new player since mine can't be repaired

  • spinoso Feb 18, 2008

    It's worth a try, thank you

Now that today's CD-ROMs are 40 and 50 times faster than their progenitors the problem is that they're too fast. Modern CAV (constant angular velocity) CD-ROM drives require a second or two to spin up before they start reading. That's not a problem if you're copying large amounts of data, but if you just want to view a file or two on a CD or play a game from a CD-ROM, that lag can be annoying.

    There's still a solution to that problem. Re copy again the cd or burn it again with the help your friend which was it can read by your friend player. Burn / copy it in the slowest speed 32x could be better so that your player can read it now.. A 8x CD-R / CD-RW will do..

    There are few reasons that it might not work
    Difference of media
    Different type of Recorder (that media has been written)
    Cleanliness of the lens

    Please check the those and post your comments

Hello Mark. Most likely your player is regionalized and not compatable ith those DVD's that won't play. To eliminate the regional setting on your player go to this link http://www.wisebread.com/make-your-dvd-player-region-free-in-seconds

It contains the step by step instructions on how to make your player region free. It also has an how to video and a full explanation of why the regionalization was installed in the first place. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Unknown disk type


Press 'Disc Menu' and wait for 'no disc' to appear on the screen. Eject the tray by pressing the 'open / close' button on front of the recorder. Enter the following numbers very slowly on the remote control ' 0086000 ' Press ' OK ' button on your remote control. Close the tray by pressing ' open / close ' button on the front of the recorder. You can check this has worked by pressing ' 0009 OK ' on your remote after the tray has closed. A display will pop up on screen showing the Region as 0. This means you should be able to play discs from all Regions. If this doesn't work the first time! try again! Hope this helps!!

Dvd "unknown disc" message coming up


Have you tryed to use a lens cleaning disc yet. The laser lens on these players and recorders alike, must have the lens cleaned every oince in awhile. If that does not help, most likly you have a bad laser pickup assembly and you will need to replace the plaer as to have that repaiered, you could buy a new unit. Good Luck
