Question about GoVideo DV1140 DVD Player / VCR Combo
I've no complaints about the DVD but whenever I tried to view a VHS tape (movie purchase/rental or just a show I taped) the tape starts fine, then sound is replaced by buzzing followed by TOTAL loss of sound and LOTS of static - then the tape comes back for about 15 seconds and sound is lost again, etc etc. This goes on sometimes for the DURATION of the tape and occurs even with brand new blank tapes that I've used to tape TV shows for later viewing. What's going on, and how can I fix this? I've even tried cleaning/demagnetizing the play heads with a tape cleaner I've had for awhile but nothing seemed to work.
SOURCE: dvd player will not read disk
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

When this model was released, sheer versatile and packed with accessories and many bought because of accessories in the cabin, but the only catch was blue ray DVDwich were in HD format for improving the image quality. But the down side is as with previous optical disc formats, HD DVD supports several file systems, such as ISO 9660 and Universal Disk Format (UDF). All HD DVD titles use UDF version 2.5 as the file system. In the file system, a multiplexed audio and video streams are stored in EVO container format.
Plus all HD DVD players are required to decode linear (uncompressed) PCM, Dolby Digital AC-3, Dolby Digital EX, DTS, Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby TrueHD.A secondary soundtrack, if present, can be stored in any of theaforementioned formats, or in one of the HD DVD optional codecs: DTS-HD High Resolution Audio and DTS-HD Master Audio.For the highest-fidelity audio experience, HD DVD offerscontent-producers the choice of LPCM, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MasterAudio.
Wheras HD DVD video can be encoded using VC-1, AVC, or MPEG-2. A wide variety of resolutions are supported, from low-resolution CIF, all SDTV resolutions supported by DVD-Video, and of course the HDTV formats: 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. All studio-released movie titles have featured video in a 1080-line format, with companion supplements in 480i or 480p. The vast majority of releases were encoded with VC-1, and most of the remaining titles encoded with AVC.
Now all such formats can be read/interpreted by using various media player whjich were capable of decoding whichever media player that player suited best. The way u can use/listen or see netfix DVD'd is to use a audio cm video covertyer to convert the entire DVD to a format compatible with your player, on to a pen drive or any such compatible device recognized by the nlue ray DVD player.
