Question about Sansui VRDVD5000 DVD Recorder/VCR
I also experienced this problem as well as other intermittent error messages about hdd titles damaged etc.
Rather than send machine back for repair I opened it up and found a loose cable to the hard drive.(Must have come loose during transportation even though they appear to be glued in?)
I assume that because the machine can't fully "boot up" (like with a computer) it just stalls with the red light around the DVD button.
So if you are not confident in opening the machine up (unplugged from the wall of course) I would suggest taking it to a repair shop (if it is not still under warranty)..chances are it is the hard drive.
Hope this helps a few people.

I had the same problem with my sansui san0218-160 dvd recorder. i found the power supply board inside the case had failed, so i replaced two faulty capacitors on the power supply board and reassembled the recorder, it`s working like new again. hope this may be of some help.

I've got the same model but what you are talking about is not a fault. It is a safeguard so you don't interrupt the recording accidentally. From memory, if you want to stop it recording, press and HOLD the stop button on the device (not the remote) until it responds. It takes a few seconds so be patient.
