Question about Sansui VRDVD4005 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

Discs will not play on any other machine

This is a cool recorder, but I've found that the discs I make will ONLY play on this machine. I cannot play them on any other DVD player, whether stand-alone or in a computer. Needless to say, that makes the discs practically worthless. Anybody else have this problem? Is there a way to find out what kind of encoding is used, so as to figure out if the data is retrievable?

    No matter what DVD I place into the VRDVD4005, I receive an error message "Incorrect Disk - C104"

    Unit plays VHS tapes ok, but not DVDs.

    Thanks for chiming in, but this isn't a solution to the problem.

I have the same problem with a brand new HP Pavilion PC running Windows Vista with a LightScribe DVD reader. I downloaded the latest driver from LightScribe, but the system refuses to recognize it. A request for help from HP hasn't been answered yet.

My son has the same problem with his custom machine running Windows XP.

Dvd disc not playing


Buy a cleaning disc for about $15.00. If that doesn't work it's time to buy a new one.

Dvdr3576h will record on dvd+r but will not play on other devices


You will need to finalize the discs on the Philips. I know the manual says that +r may auto-finalize, but I found that finalization sometimes fails on the first attempt. Go into the menu for the Philips, and select the Edit Disc -> Finalize option. Once finalized, your disc should play in other players.

Press the "setup" button on the remote. Go to "system setup" in the menu then "disc setup" then "finalize" then "proceed" to finalise the disc to play on other machines.

Won't Read blank disc!!


I my DVD-HR735 wont recognise any discs at times, and is getting worse. I've now discovered (out of frustration) that if I tip the front up to between 30-45 degrees, it will play all the discs it says were unreadable. I've started jamming three dvd boxes under the front of the machine when i want to play dvds.

Not reading pre-recorded dvd's and ocassionally not re-wrtten dvds


Over recent months my recorder has stopped reading pre-recorded disc's and more requently re-writer disc's. I had thought that the region had some how been altered, but not too sure now. Is there a way of checking? Or is there a problem with the laser block. I have stripped the machine down and thoroughly cleaned (but no dust found) and no loose parts. I have reset to manufacture default but this hasn't helped.

OK 1 Other User Has The Same Problem Comment by Guest, posted on Dec 19, 2007 DVDR70-051 recorder functions generally becoming more and more erratic. DVD-RW discs I have recorded sometimes say 'disc error' sometimes 'no disc' sometimes start ok but cycles round and round for 5 - 10 mins before stopping, sometimes goes straight into play at last position, won't stop back in menu just goes straight to stndby. Factory reset dosn't help. Wont play pre-recorded discs without going into menu and messing around. It seems to damage or not record RW discs properly a lot of the time. Not even sure if it's resetting to factory settings properly.

Dvd willnot record, keeps saying defect in disc


I had the same problem and just figured it out about 5 minutes ago. I have been trying 16x discs. I guess it can only read 8x max dvd+r discs. Give that a try. The hardest part was finding 8x discs. I found some at K-mart on closeout, 15 for 6.00 plus tax. Good luck to you.
