OUCH!!!

Seeing as I work at one, I would recommend a pawn shop for starters. Specially if you live in a more metropolitan city, the likelihood that you can find a matching brand will be much better odds.

The other would be an ebay search to see if there is someone out there that specializes in DVD/VCR combo parts.

Your last ditch effort would be a dealer from out of Hong Kong, but the parts aren't always the best (seeing as that may be the only option) and they can take up to 4 weeks to get to your house.

Probably not the most helpful information, but at least its a starting point...

Or. You could find an old cd drive with a similar drive door and try to swap it with the broken tray. There are only two or three drive makers out there. You could get lucky and do this for cheap.
Just find out who made the dvd drive in your tv and find an old cd drive and compare. It could work.

    saw this post and want to know how do you snap the tray back into place. my son pulled it out and i am having a devil of a time getting it to snap back in, there does not appear to be anything broken, just not sure if the dvd player needs to be open or not.

    The tray is a snug fit so you might want to get one side started and then lightly flex the tray to get it back onto the guide rail.

    The trays usually have a molded in tab that acts as a stop. When you pull hard on the tray the tabs either break or bend and the tray comes out. If the tabs are still there then a little finesse is all you need to get the tray back in. If the tabs are broken then the tray might not stop when it ejects!

How do you record dvd to vhs and from vhs to dvd


For VHS to DVD, put the tape to dub in the VHS slot and a blank DVD in the DVD tray. Make sure the DVD is compatible with the DVD recorder (see the recommended disc list) and is unfinalized if you are using a R/W disc. Close the tray. Set the unit to VCR mode with the DVD/VCR button. Advance the tape to the place that you want the recording to start. Then press the Dubbing button (either on the remote or the unit itself). Select the recording mode (SP, LP etc), highlight Dubbing then press Enter or Dubbing. Press Stop to interrupt the recording.

For DVD to VHS, put a blank tape in the VCR (make sure the protection tab has not been broken off) and the DVD to duplicate in the DVD tray and close the tray. Put the unit in DVD mode by pressing the DVD/VCR button. Find the point at which you want to start recording the DVD. Again press Dubbing and set up the recording mode and highlight Dubbing and press Enter or Dubbing.

Note that copyprotected content can not be recorded.

The manual for this recorder is on the right side of the page here: http://www.lg.com/us/tv-audio-video/video/LG-dvd-recorder-RC897T.jsp . See page 48 for the screen captures of setting the recording mode part of the dubbing procedure.

I hope this helps.

I have an RCA DVD/VHS combo with TVG. The DVD


This is a work-around rather than a solution. We put an audio CD in the tray and after closing the tray the unit begins to play the music. After waiting a few seconds we open the tray and quickly substitute a DVD and it loads OK. We had also tried cleaning the player to no avail. The CD approach is a pain but it does allow us to play DVDs. Jim

DVD burner will not burn or finalize


Hi,
There are three things you can do that will eventually give you a working solution. Depending on the level of problem. Start with 1 progress to 3 until it works.
1. Use a cleaning disc. (one that use an alcohol based liquid)
2. If the cleaning disc does not solve it, you can use an ear bud, with some iso-propyl alcohol to clean the DVD lens on the drive directly. (you have to open the player and the drive)
3. The guaranteed working solution is to replace the DVD drive inside the player. This is quite a simple process, as most players use a standard IDE DVD-ROM or DVD writer.
You simply remove the face plate, (apply power to the drive, and press eject first) the tray will open. Unclip the tray face, and then with the tray open you can unclip the plastic face plate too.
Remove the old drive, and fit the new drive by reversing the removal procedure.
Once everything is assembled you should be able to watch DVD's again. If you can't find a cheap DVD drive locally, try ebay.
I have done this on over 50 players for my clients in the past. I use LG DVD roms and DVD writers for the DVD recorders, irrespective of brand.
Let me know how it goes.

Losing Audio Halfway Through Recording


The audio failure sounds more like a VHS player failure than a DVD software/recorder failure. Both audio and video are transferred at the same time to the DVD, and as long as the DVD recorder is working, that's really all there is. I would check the VHS player and confirm that the sound actually works all the way through.

Funai dvd rcorder will not record to dvd


Are you trying to record a VHS tape to DVD? This won't work if the VHS tape is a commercial (disney, dreamwords, etc) because of an analog copy protection scheme known as Macrovision.

If you are trying to record, say, a broadcast signal and it will record to VHS and HDD, but the DVD errors out, then either the DVD drive is bad, or you have the incorrect type of recordable DVD in the player...
