Question about GoVideo DVD & Blu-Ray Players

1 Answer

After coming home from a short trip, I tried to watch a DVD program I had recorded while away. When I tried to play the DVD, it said "don't recognize the disk", & the tray opened up. Whenever I put any kind of disk in now, movie or something I've recorded or a blank disk, I get the same message & the tray opens. Everything had been working fine up until then. I've probably this DVD Recorder/VHS machine for about 2-1/2 to 3 years with no problem until now.

I purchased a second Sony RDR-VX525 Video Cassette Recorder/DVD Recorder for our bedroom to replace a failing Zenith VCR recorder/player. I began using the Sony VHS/DVD recorder to transfer our movies...


This is a known issue that happens with these players

To fix the Sony remote dvd-1 dvd-2 dvd-3 issue, take the remote for that recorder into another room or unplug the dvd recorder a moment. Then hold down the enter key and the number of the mode its stuck in ie if its stuck in dvd-1 mode hold down the enter key and then the 1 key. hold both buttons together for 3 seconds. After this go back into the room and try it or if you unplugged the player, then replug it back in. The remote has to be away from the player to work. again

here is an example

<stuck in dvd-1mode> get away from player different room so it can not sence remote. Hold down enter and 1 button for 3 seconds and then try it
if its stuck in dvd-2 mode dold down enter and the number 2 button together for 3 secondsd and try it. The idea is you have to be far away from the recorder so it dosent recieve any inputs from the remote while doing this.

Let me know if you are still having problems with this and I would be glad to help you.

thanks

Playback on recorded disk


The DVD has burned incorrectly and the data has likely corrupted somewhat to the point where the DVD player/writer can't read it. You may be able to watch it on your computer with a DVD drive. Try saving it to your computer, then erasing the disc and trying to record something short to it and play it back - if it plays back, it's likely to have been a recording problem, however, if you get the same problem, it may be a dodgy disc, a faulty DVD player/writer, or a format problem. Try this, in order left to right. Copy DVD to PC -> Erase DVD -> Record on DVD from TV -> Play back If plays back Erase DVD -> Continue as normal If not Buy DVD-RW (emphasis on the minus) -> Try using that If that works continue as normal, otherwise... Return the DVD player/writer under warranty for repair/replacement.

When I use the timer to record a TV show with my DVD-R155, unit locks up.


If you can afford it purchase a TIVO. I had a a video and dvd player and it drove me mad. This unit records 2 programs at once with just the press of a button.
you can watch tv at the same time. Also you can rewind situations on live tv to watch it again. Top unit. I am 73 and I have no problem using it. Love it!

After recording a program on a DVD+R disc, the TV screen says "Disc Finalize Processing...." and nothing else works. I can't stop it, watch it, finalize it, or power off.


The DVD burner in your DVD-VR is defective. Get it replaced at a service center.Is is not able to read the lead in lead out information from your disc. Try playing one of the disc you have written on another DVD player.

My DVD recorder is telling me "Input Source Protected" when I try to record. What does this mean?


This means the material you are trying to record is copywrite protected and can't be recorded. This can come from other DVD's or even certain brodcast programs are copywrited and therfore can't be recorded. I Have heard there ia abox you can hook to the DVD so it will remove thes copywrites but I don't know if they are still for sale. I hear someone tell me that he got his at Best Buy but that has been a few years back. If you have a computer and can go online, there is a program called DVD Fab decrypter that can remove the copywrites to most DVD's and you can make a copy on your computer to watch in your DVD. Just look up the DVD Fab Decrypter and check out their site. There is a cost for this program but I thought it was well worth it, I have made personal copies of many movies using this prgram.

I have a rca dvd recorder+vcr combo drc8320n i want to set up watching/changing cabletv channels on the dvd remote. i have tried buying universal remotes cheap& expensive but they no longer work on my


With cable input connected to "RF in"on rear of unit make sure vidoe input is set to "Tuner". This will show up on the TV screen. Change channels numerically or using up/down arrow keys on DVR remote. Note there is a slight pause between changing channels.You probably will have to "autoscan" for channel setup/etc. If you say your TV set is old; it probabaly is equiped with coax
connection only/set TV channel to "3" or "4". when yot opt to play vcr/dvd it will override your
cable channel selected. Hope this helps!

Playing burnt DVD disks on other dvd players


It is very possible that the head alignment on your DVD recorder is a little out.

Also, make sure that you are closing the session after doing the recording (burn). If the session is not closed, the DVD will not be playable on other players.

Transfering a vhs to a dvd


Hi jh1014,

If the disc is not playing on your home DVD player, it is possible that it was recorded in a format your unit does not support.

Your friend’s DVD recorder most likely recorded the DVD in a format readable by the player in which you watched it successfully.

Refer to your product manual for more information on which file formats your DVD player supports.

Thank you,
Jason,
