Re: go video model 3930 dvd player recorder with vcr
I think your solution is impractical. If the unit is still under warranty, you should let GoVideo handle it.
A knowledgable tech might be able to point you towards a "stock" replacement, but finding someone to give out that kind of free advice is going to be nearly impossible. And chances are the part (even though cheaply made) would be expensive to buy even if you do find a source.
Next time don't buy a combo unit. They are never worth the sum of their parts. You can buy a $50-75 VCR that is as good or better and a $80-150 DVD recorder that is just as good as that GoVideo unit

I would start with a DVD cleaner kit for the player. Chances are, if the drive worked before, then it will again; after being cleaned.
If the issue persists, then the DVD drive is failing. Chances are at that point, it would be cheaper to replace the entire unit then just the DVD drive.
No VCR required - A VCR is a video cassette recorder, which requires a video cassette in order to record source material. A DVD recorder, requires DVD discs and this model in particular has a built in hard drive so you don't even need discs either, unless you plan to share recordings with others. All you need is a 'feed' / 'source' from an external aerial like Cable or Sky etc.
Does that help?
hook the video output from vcr to dvd input at rear, then hook output from dvd to tv input. note; you can not record protected vcr movies you can only record tv shows from sattelite to vcr or dvd recorder. its best to record straight from sattelite to dvd recorder for picture clarity.
Please connect video out and audio out of your TV to video in and audio in of your vcr respectively.Switch on the TV and the VCR.Put the VCR on camera or AV mode.Press the record key on VCR.The VCR will record the programme being shown on your TV.Thanks.
