Question about Funai FDRV90E DVD Recorder/VCR
When you insert a vcr tape, it starts to play and then everything including the dvd player shut down and the power shuts off
I have researched that there has been numerous issues in this unit beyond warranty period just like this issue and the one I have with the DVD recorder. I am planning to write a letter to the company and need some supporters. If you like to put a response (one line with your name) in this link, I will include them as comments to the CEO of the company. I feel like we are being ripped by this company that sells products with defective and unreliable components.

Me too..! Never used the VCR for the year it was under warrenty and when I recently tried to play a tape it shut the unit down in about 6 seconds.
I had trouble with the DVD burner working spuratically...and then not burning a disc at all...and giving me an error message for a bad disc. Wrong. There was nothing wrong with the disc. Today I took the case off (6 screws) and blew the unit out with a hair dryer. I was going to clean the laser reader but had no denatured alcohol...put it back together turned it on...and it burned the disc it had rejected earlier. Maybe it just needed to be dusted...!

I have the same problem with Play,FF, REW. Goes for 5 to 7 seconds and shuts down. Hit power switch and tape ejects. It acts like there is a problem with the end of tape sensor. Does anyone know how the end of tape sensor in this thing works?

"Thank you for your inquiry,
It shouldn't do that.. it would need to be looked into.
Have you had this unit within the one year warranty along with the original receipt? We can service this unit if that is the case. Please reply back as soon as you can for further instructions or call our support line at 1-800-242-7158.

Seems like no solution...bummer. Funai was no help. Same out of warrenty story and no idea what i was talking about. Tried to blame it on the unit being old. Too bad I didn't use the vcr side sooner!! it would still be under warranty. Well there's 180 bucks down the tubes.

I too am experiencing the same issue as my unit shuts down after a few minutes of use. I will never buy anything from this Funai again. Btw: unplugging it does work but only for a short amount of time and then the problem happens again. Very poor product.
