Not if you mean recording within that 1 unit from VHS to DVD.You would need a second unit DVD recorder which normally requires a digital input of some sort such as a cable box or a self-contained digital scanner but I am not sure if that would even work.It would depend on what the media input was recorded on the VHS.

unplugged the unit and then re plugged and turn it on again while pressing the eject button, let see if it does. if still won't open, at this time you are going to remove the cover so you can access the internal part. you need check weather their is an stuck up on the rail motor for the loading tray or the motor belt not aligned.

The safe mode on Sanyo VCRs locks out the buttons on the machine. Try using the remote. To turn off the safe mode, look for a button on the remote labeled "Safe."

Likely something in the mechanism is out of position causing this. First thing I would do is open unit and watch to see what happens when you power it up--also look nothing is inside the unit that does not belong there.

Combo units almost never sell "parts" for the DVD part--only the complete unit (expensive if even available).

I am sorry to hear regarding the trouble.

This is a common problem on this unit and many complaints has already been registered for the same cause.Unfortunately, there is no ' quick ' fix and it would need repair. You could try to disconnect the power supply for few minutes, say 30 minutes and then turn it ON. If that does not help, repair or replacement is the only option. On most of the other models, you would often find a tiny hole next to the tray for manually open the tray door, however this model does not have. You would need to remove the top of the machine to see if you can gain enough access to manually unwind the mechanism by hand. If you cant do that the whole of the deck would need to come out to get at the tray motor it is probable that the drive belt usually a very small one has failed. Be advised to disconnect the power from the wall power.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Hey my nameis Mike Houston of DISH Network and I see where you want to run the SanyoDVW-6000 DVD/VCR Player to the DISH Network receiver. You can run the SanyoDVD/VCR directly to the TV and pick the channel you want to record and it willrecord the channel showing.

You should check your SCART cable and the SCART sockets on both the TV and the DVD players. Make sure none of the pins on the SCART cable connectors are bent, loose - or missing. I suggest you also try another SCART cable and ensure you haven't accidentally muted the DVD player from the remote.
