Open Question

I have a Sylvania SRDV 495 dvd-VHS recorder. It gives error messages when the disc is not a specific type. Does anyone have a link to the software upgrade to be able to record DVD-R?

I have the same unit, a SRDv495 and have also been having
a bad time getting dvd's that will work in my machine. I also
bought mine from Sears. I have found one that works every
time and that is a MAXWELL DVD-RW. The trick I think is
the speed of the DVD, so you need to use the ones that have
Up to Max 2X, 4.7 GBgo, 2 Hrs. I find these work every time.
Hope this helps.

Are you pressing the record button on the actual box? I'm not sure if you are supposed to be able to record that way, but I can't either. If that is what you've been trying, then I suggest this:

What I had to do was hit the "Dubbing" button on the remote control. It will automatically start the VHS tape and start recording to DVD.

Hope this helps.

EXT1 is not an error - that message means that the dvd player is on input "EXT1" - so it is trying to display whatever is connected to EXT1 in the back of your DVD player, whether it is a cable/sat box, another vhs player, etc. The message may be getting displayed for a number of reasons - but, if you put in an incompatilbe/unfinalized disc type, and it is not able to play that disc, it may default to EXT1 b/c it is searching for some type of usable signal.

The MRV700VR is only compatible with certain discs types - and the disc types that you are trying to insert must also be finalized discs. I would reccomend only using the compatible disc types listed in your user's manual - some of them are getting harder-to-find. 16x discs are very iffy with this machine. 8x discs are best.

I have the full user's manual, so I can give you any more details that you request.

Dish dvr 625 can't get dvd/vcr player to work with tv2..


if you have the coax hooked to the VCR in you will need to change the VCR channel to 22 and leave the TV itself tuned to 3 or 4.. I recommend setting the vcr to 60 or 73 to see if you can get reception on there as that is usually the two channels that TV2 is modulated on. You can check the modulation by going to TV1 and pressing menu-6-1-5 on the TV1 remote. Thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can be of further assistance please let me know.

Unable to "dub" my 8mm tapes onto DVD-R using my Sylvania DV90VE


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.

Funai DRV-B2737 Error message


I'd had this problem with my 2737 for quite some time but haven't had the time to fix this until now.
Just for the record it has one laser unit inside which fires off two frequencies one for read the other for write. Anyway, I've been repairing Playstation 1 and 2 and Xbox for years and the most common problem seem to be disc read errors caused by seemingly failing lasers or scratched/damaged discs.
The manufacturer sets these lasers at safe usable limits but after some use they start malfunctioning.
I wanted to copy a VHS recorded disc to my PC tonight only to find I hadn't finalised it in my Funai.
Realising I couldn't because of the silly E4 54037380 error I finally took the plunge and dismantled the unit.

NOTE: the following is not for the faint hearted and please use an antistatic wrist strap to earth yourself.



The Disc tray mechanism has to be removed and a small circuit board directly to the right has too be released. There are a plethora of ribbon cables but only one needs disconnection. Carefully turn the disc drive mechanism on it's back and un clip the thick ribbon cable that attaches to the laser. Tuck the cable out of the way being careful not to damage it. Move the lens unit to the top of the tray mechanism and note there are two potetiometers Using a pot tool or fine flat bladed screwdriver adjust the lower pot by an eigth of a turn (this increases the frequency of the recording laser enough to eliminate the E4 54037380 error completely or it did in my case).Problem solved fully working recorder.

Dismantling procedure

Disconnect Funai from mains and remove the top casing (5 screws)

There are 4 screws holding disc drive mechanism in front right most tricky (use grabber tool to retrieve screw)
Top right has an earth cable connected to it
The other end of the earth cable is held in by another screw on the circuit board next to the drive mechanism this also needs removing
The screw directly below this with the metal earth case strip remove.
The board is held on by two small plastic lugs which need compressing so the board can pop up.
Remove drive mechanism carefully along with the circuit board and flip the whole lot over. Be mindful of the ribbon cables as they are fragile

I have a Sylvania SRDV495 DVD/VHS combo recorder (-R/-RW) it will not let me record to or from any Dvd higher than 2x4.7 gb yet the manual says it should as long as it is -R/-RW disc.


It could be the color on the surface of the disc.Try using a differnt type of dvd disc. There is also a different types of burnable dvds. there dvdr and dvd rom make sure your using the correct one. The differance is the burn speeds. 4times is fast. check your users manual which sould be on www.sylavania.com to see what the player requires. See if that helps if not get back to me.
