Question about GoVideo VR3845 DVD Recorder/VCR

Go video VR3845

My dvd/vcr recorder has been working fine for over a year and now all of a sudden I can watch a dvd or vcr tape but I can't record any tv channels because its no longer seeing the tv channels all I get now is snow. I haven't changed any of the connections or anything and this just started happening. The channel indicator on the recorder is flashing and when I hit the up or down channel button it changes the channel but still no picture.

I bought the VR3845 on a whim, at a local Costco because of the DVD/VHS combo feature and the price. After 7 months the VR3845 suddenly wouldn't read DVD's anymore, even ones I'd recorded the night before. The GoVideo Web site was of no help and I'm now facing wasting hours of my time to get a replacement or my money back, assuming I can.

Other "features", you can only switch recording channels at the minute. That means you record, say 8pm to 9pm on channel 5, but you can't program the unit to record from 9pm to 10pm on a different channel. The programming interface will only let you start the next recording on a new channel at 9:01PM, so you lose the first minute of your program.

At the end of a programmed recording session the VR3845 automatically shuts off. If you're watching another channel while recording, suddenly all you see is static until you power up the VR3845 again.

Sorry Man but this thing just isn't worth it I would take it back.

How to switch the tape speed on Go Video dvd/tape.


  1. Press SETUP,
  2. Toggle with the left/right arrow to the RECORDING OPTIONS (icon has a dot and the letters REC below it in the icon menus at the top of the set up screen.)
  3. While RECORDING options is selected, press the DOWN arrow to select VCR RECORD QUALITY.
  4. Press ENTER to go to the submenu.
  5. Use the ARROW UP/DOWN buttons to select the desired quality.
  6. Press ENTER to confirm selection.
  7. Press SETUP to exit the menu.
This is the same procedure for selecting the quality for the DVR recording speeds.

VHS speeds are:
SLP is 3x the recording time of SP.

DVR recording options are:

HQ=1 hour
SP=2 hours
EP=4 hours
SLP=6 hours

per disc.

DVD Recorder+VCR


Are you putting in both media, starting the VCR you want to copy and then pressing copy? The first post mentions "set up" and that is not necessary for copying.
