Question about GoVideo Go Video DVD/VCR Combo

1 Answer

No power to DVD combo player. VCR OK.

I have a Go Video dual deck (DV1140). DVD and VCR. Apparently there's no power to the DVD. VCR works fine. Switched power supplies with a known working one. No difference. Removed non-working DVD deck and installed it in a known working DV1140 chassis. DVD powered up! So, problem must be in the original chassis circuit board. Any suggestions? What to look for? Where to start? I have a pretty good knowledge of electronics, but please take it slow. I'd appreciate it........tronicsman

    Are you talking within the main power supply for the whole unit or the circuit board towards the DVD deck? It is one large board for both decks. Another thing I noticed was the microprocessor directly underneath the DVD deck runs extremely hot. Number one pin on that processor reads less than 5 volts. Is running hot typical and should I get a 5 volt reading?

The power circuit for the DVD and the vcr are separate look for a open diode and transistor in the circuit that supply the DVD.GOOD LUCK.

Dv1140-vhs has lots of static on screen and lots of buzzing from audio.

Hi, I suggest, manual cleaning with a swab, you will need to take off cover, inside is three heads, probably has dust, swab off with alcohol spirits

Have a samsung DVD-V1000 VCR/DVD combo unit. DVD player works fine. been experiencing gradual decline of the VCR and now it won't play at all. will **** tape into the machine but can't get it out. any...

Always frustrating when a videotape gets stuck in a failing/failed VCR deck. Since all decks use a loading motor and gear system, it would be a simple matter of gaining access to the terminal pins of the loading motor (assuming you can see these from the top of the deck) and applying 9V DC voltage to 'unwind' the loading mechanism - you may get a little bit of tape outside of the cassette, but at least it's ejected. If the DVD deck works as you say, you may be able to continue using this for a while.

If the loading assembly is toward the underside of the main deck, you may need to remove the entire VCR mechanism - then you can apply the 9V to the motor to unwind the gear (it is easier to apply a low voltage to the deck rather than use physical force to unwind gears - as you may damage them) - while leaving the DVD deck in the unit untouched. There should be 2 separate mechanisms in this combo - 1 being for DVD the other being for VCR - as long as you are careful when removing the VCR deck, you should have no problem retrieving your tape (with maybe a little creasing but otherwise undamaged) from it. Be careful when removing the top cover and front panel assembly; you don't want anything broken.

Since VCRs are becoming obsolete these days, it is hardly worth getting this one repaired by any service centre (unless you want to pay a fortune, which is usually more than the retail price of a new combo unit). It's up to you.

NOTE: you cannot operate this unit with the VCR deck disconnected from the motherboard (you will get an annoying error display with the VCR removed). Once you have successfully removed your tape from it, reconnect the VCR mechanism to the board - but do not use it - just use the DVD part if that is still OK. Refit the covers, plug machine into power. Done!

You need a lot of patience to undertake the abovementioned action. Fingers crossed.

Hokk up my dvd player to my digital cable box

Thats ok my family is that same. you have to plug the video cords ( yellow white red ) into the output of the dvd vcr combo ( i think it says vcr output) then connect the ( yellow white and red ) video cord into the input your televition. the input may be at the back or front or both.

It looks better and cleaner if you plug it into the back ones. It should say input and be ( yellow white red ) colours. once you have connected them both up to eachother you turn the power on (if you left it on dont worry its fine) and tuen the vcr on and tv on at the power buttons.

Then turn the tv on to av1 or video what ever your tv calls it. put a vhs or dvd in and press play and it should work.

Thanks for asking if you have any other problems i am happy to help please dont hesitate to ask
