20 Most Recent Sanyo DRW-1000 DVD Recorder/VCR Questions & Answers


Convert to playable dvd from .mov file

Usually .mov Files will work if you have a good DVD Burning Program, however the standard is .mpg or .avi. Most programs such as Roxio, Nero, and 3rd party DVD Authoring programs will use any file, but it will take a little longer because it has to convert the video, usually resulting a little quality loss.

How to clean a dvd disc

Buy a "kit", or use a small amount of dish-washing soap, and quickly rinse it off. Put the disk onto a paper towel, to let it dry off.

I record a program, I can play it & see it on

After you finish recording you have to finalize the disc before you can play it in another DVD player.The owners manual will have a section to tell you how to finalize the disc. WARNING!!! Once you have finalized the disc you will no longer be able to record on it. If this helps please rank me and leave a comment. I do not get paid in any way but I like doing this and want to make sure I am helping. I am adding a link where you can download the manual in case you lost it.

Trying to find a remote for a Sanyo dr1000 I purchased 2nd hand will a universal work?

I would try a universal remote and before you buy it, check to see if your brand of TV is on the list they provide. Chances are all of the newer remotes will have a code that works.

My sanyo dwm-3900 is on progressive scan mode how do i fix this


If your DVD players is set to Progressive Scan Mode, tehn ther would be a light indicating it is so. The light is labeled P?scan on the bottom right side of your display window.

You can disable/turn OFF the P/Scan mode in the "Setup menu".

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Put dvd in it says no disc or disc error

The problem is caused by the laser pickup assembly, the laser cannot read the disc because the pladder motor is not turning. The only option is to replace the assembly, not cost effective to repair, cheaper to buy a new replacement.

Child protective lockout can't be turned off

I found the remote, then tried 0000 to unlock, which didn't work. Luckily 1111 did. I figure if I hadn't found the remote, I could have bought a cheap universal one. But all is well now. I still have no idea how the parental control was implemented.
