if you have a door that opens on the front, on some models you can open that door yourself then look inside and somewhere you will see a little hole about the size for like a paper clip to fit in, if so push a paper clip in there and it should force the disc tray out and hopefully resetting it
From comments posted on the Internet by other Sylvania users with a similar problem, I
learned that I had to use a 4X DVD-R (the ones I had been trying to record on were 16X).
And I found that Office Depot sells the sometimes hard-to-find 4X format, so that's where
I'm headed right after lunch. Thanks.
Unfortunately without a firmware upgrade the only disks you can use are DVD-R or DVD-RW. The tricky part is that you can ONLY USE 2X speed. Per my conversation with Sylvania there is a firmware update that will allow you to use up to 8x disks, but they are charging $17.00 for it.
If it's 7071, shut the unit off by holding the power button until the time is displayed (instead of the error code). Unplug the unit. When you open the case, you will see a white plastic piece at the front of the dvd drive near the silver plastic hinge on the face of the unit's dvd opening. The white plastic piece slips in the groove of the hinge to stop the units dvd door from being opened while the drive is engaged. Push the white plastic piece in toward the dvd drive; sometimes the mechanism gets sticky. Plug the unit back in and press the power button. This may solve the problem
Hope this helps.
