20 Most Recent GoVideo VR3840 DVD Recorder/VCR Questions & Answers


Hiya ... you have a simple lead or set up problem .. ensure that the lead is a good quality one .... and also that the correct leads are atttached where they should be on the tv & stereo... select AV....( this is also dependant on the number of peripheral attachments and their set up to the T.V... ie Digital box.. dvd player... scart or aerial connection)... after checking these... use your T.V controls.. select menu... sounds...external sounds... or digital sounds... something similar....select external devices.... ensure that you have the "phono" selected on your hi-fi.. this should sort your problem.
You should remember also that once you use your Hi-fi to listen to your t.v.... some tv sound systems will.. not allow any of the additional speakers attached to the tv to work ..... you should however be able to manipulate bass/treble settings in certain sound modes via your tv remote.
Alternatively if you have the ROCK/POP/CINEMA...etc selection modes on your hi-fi these can also be used for a satisfactory sound...
Have I understood your problem correctly? and has it helped?

Regards Faggly

hi..if a lense cleaner  dont solve the prolbem then you can replace the laser unit itself if that type of cleaning also dont work means and you think you are capable of taking the casing off make sure you switch it off first this should send the laser to the center of the laser tray if you take the case off and it is not in the center it might just be that it has got stucked sometimes gently pushing it back to the middle will get it working again if it is already in the middle then it could be that the laser needs replacing but if not in middle push gently dont shake the device too much it  should be quite hard to push any way when you push back to middle try a disk  but please make sure you dont touch anything while device is it is plugged in if nothing works then it probably is the laser but before you do anything as soon as you get the case off switch it on and put a dvd in and make sure the disk is spinning.. if its not spinning then ur laser unit is damaged..

thank u

It sounds like you have the "progressive scan" mode enabled. This changes the order that the scan lines (each horizontal line) is sent to your TV. When this setting doesn't match what your TV expects, you get this effect.

have you tried getting a lense cleaner as they sometimes get alot of dust and will stop signal from disk to the laser if this dont solve the prolbem then you are looking at replacing the laser unit itself if the cleaning dont work and you think you are capable of taking the casing off make sure you switch it off first this should send the laser to the center of the laser tray if you take the case off and it is not in the center it might just be that it has got jammed now sometimes gently pushing it back to the middle will get it working again if it is already in the middle then it could be that the laser needs replacing but if not in middle push gently dont gerk it it should be quite stiff to push any way when you push back to middle try a disk with the casing off but please make sure you dont touch anything whislt it is plugged in if nothing works then it probably is the laser but before you do anything as soon as you get the case off switch it on and put a dvd in and make sure the disk is spinning if not laser unit is nakered and need replacing let me know how you get on hope this is some help to you

Your VCR is suffering from old age. Also, if you are playing old tapes, the oxide may be shedding onto the heads.

The inability to read DVD+R disks probably is the reason the recorder was offered for sale on eBay.
