Question about Sylvania SRD3900 DVD Player/VCR
If you are trying to record vhs tapes to the dvr side, first you need to get 1x up to 8x DVD-R dvds. You can find them on ebay. The machine has problems recognizing the up to 16x type. Put the blank DVD in and let it load. Then start playing (not dubbing but playing) the videotape for at least 6-8 seconds. If you have somewhat of a lead-in on the videotape you can let it go even 10 seconds. Only after the videotape has been playing for this period of time, press the dubbing button. If the error code does come up, rewind the tape and start again, but in most cases the error code will not happen if you do it like this.

If you are trying to record from a vhs tape to a dvd, first of all you'll need to buy only 1x-8x dvd-r dvds. You can find the 4x or 8x on ebay. This recorder has a problem with the up to 16x. Put the DVD-R in and let it load. Put the videotape in. Press play on the videotape side - not dubbing but play - and let the videotape play for 6-10 seconds and THEN press the dubbing button. If you have somewhat of a lead-in on the videotape you won't lose anything. At most otherwise you'll lose 6-10 seconds. If the error code comes up, rewind the tape, and start again. Letting the videotape run for a bit first before pressing dubbing seems to prevent this problem, at least for me, and I was getting the error code every time.
