20 Most Recent Sylvania DVR90VE DVD Recorder/VCR Questions & Answers

Sorry to hear about your problem. I do own this model too. I have not gotten the update myself. I just started using the dvd recorder.I bought a pack of dvds (Ativa) and now I need to return them, they are not supported by this dvd player. I called the 800 number and they told me some of the dvd brands it supports: JVC, TDK, Memorex, Maxell and Sony. I know Sony works, because I used them before. I also read "Vibratim" brand from Sam's Club works.

Be sure you have first set the clock correctly. After setting timer recorder time, channel, speed etc. hit enter to highlight the setting to be sure you have it. Press setup to put you back to tv screen. Then press t-Set button on remote. Unit will automatically shut off and there will be an amber symbol on the unit lcd along with the time. This indicated the unit is in the timer mode. It will automatically turn on and record the program at the set time.

It should explain it in the user manual, if you don't have one try the makers website they often have free PDF's of them.

Thanks for using FixYa. Please check that the DVDs are not scratched. Now run a lens cleaning DVD. If that does not work then you have to open the unit and clean the lens with a Q-tip dipped in alcohol. This is only recommended when the unit is not under warranty and you have some expertise in the field. If still the issue is not resolved then the lens is required to be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
