Question about Dual Presidian DVD Recorder

1 Answer

My PDC3286 remote is not working. I can turn on my DVD player and eject a disc, but none of the other features work. I received a new remote today, thinking that was the problem, but still the features do not work. By features, I mean pause, reverse, slow the speed etc. Any advise.

    The disc will play without any problem. I just can not rewind, pause etc.

    I am not sure if you are receiving my answer to your question. DVD works just fine. Just the
    features do not work - rewind, fast forward, pause etc.

May I ask you sir are you able to play a disc to your DVD recorder?or is just you simply turn on and eject the disk and not playing it.because when the disk is not playing then the other function will not have a command on the remote try first lens cleaning do it manually by opening the cover and clean the lens with a cotton buds moistened wit an alcohol gently wipe the lens.let me hear how it goes.
then post back again for further question I'll be glad to give you answers.

Have sylvania model ld320ssx tvdvr. is there any way we can remove dvr disc without the remote cotrol

I assume you mean the TV/DVD player. There is an Eject button on the front panel of the TV. This is the fourth button from the right. (The power button is the right-most button.) The TV does need to be on to eject the DVD.

I hope this helps.

(note: if you used a mini-disc or have two discs inside the slot, the eject feature won't work.)

Will not read disc or eject disc

There's a few things you can try. Turn off unit, unplug from AC for 5 minutes or so, plug back in, turn unit on, hit eject/open.
OR..same as above, but hold the eject/open button, then turn unit on.

Sometimes a combination of these odd procedures actually work. Sometimes holding the stop button, and hitting eject/open works too. Hope this is helpful.

I can't access the DVD features on my Westinghouse vk-40f580d, I put the dvd in and go to the DVD menu, but wont let me use any dvd controlls, it wont on the remote and tv buttons, AND I cant eject, please...

to eject the disc, turn off your TV and hold the eject button then power TV back on. Regarding the DVD feature not working, you may need to change the main board. If your TV is still in warranty, call 1-800-701-0680 for an in home service.
