Question about GoVideo DVR4200 DVD Player/VCR
Hi, well i see these types of faults, all the time in my shop. usually it is the Open/Close motor that has failed, or the driver for the motor has failed, or the microprocessor controlling the driver has faulted, or indeed ALL of them have faulted. Other times it is a thing called the "Mode Switch" this too is a common culprit. In reality, there is NO home repair, this is a job for a professional.
What you need to do, is contact a local or head office, for the GoVideo, and ask them for a referral to an authorised service center. When at the service center, please ask for a 'Quote" before allowing any repair work to be undertaken. This way you can make an informed decision, as to repair or replace, as often these days depending on the actual problem of course many repairs end up being un-economic. Also often it is better to put any monies that were to be spent on repair, towards a NEW Modern unit with a FULL warranty.
Above is your user manual.

The laser is trying to find the information on the cd that does not have it because has not been finalized, do this: turn off the unit, let it rest for about 5 minutes and then turn it on while pressing the eject constantly, do not keep you finger pressing all the time, press on and of as quick as you can.
Another thing you could do is turn it on and let it on for about 5 minutes and without touching any other button, press just once the eject button.
There is also the possibility that the cd is jammed inside in the middle of the loading cycle, in this case you will need to take it to a service for repairs.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Do you hear any noises when you press eject.

You could have a faulty motor that opens the door. You can test power to the motor with a voltmeter. If there is power and motor doesn't turn, then it is bad. If no power to the motor, than there is a bad component on the main circuit board.
You can always try and stick a paperclip in the tray and pull it open manually. Once it is opened, slowly pull it back as far as it will go, then press the eject button and hopefully it will fix itself which can happen.
