Question about GoVideo VR3840 DVD Recorder/VCR

Dvd player will not read disk

My GOVIDEO model vr3930 keeps ejecting dvd's saying"unknown disc-try again" I have tried several dvd's with same result. This began directly after successfully recording a DVD-r disc from a vhs tape.

    I have never been able to get this machine to recognize any type of disk.  Not sure if I should junk the machine or try to fix it myself.  Need help

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 I insert a blank DVD+R to copy a VHS, It reads the disk, says "Unknown Disk" and ejects it. How do I record if I can't keep a disk in the machine?


some discs don't work in some recorders. I always use verbatim, ritek or tdk discs and have very few problems. if the recorder suddenly dislikes a batch of one brand, I'll use one of the others.

What speed of disk did you use? On my older machine if I use faster than 4X it will not accept the disk. Check out your disk an see if the record speed is to fast for the machine.

Unit does not recognize DVD-R and is ejected from the player


You may need to try a DVD+R disc. Some of the players/recorders are REALLY picky.

My computer says a finalized dvd made on govideo vr3930 is blank.


Sounds like your computer only reads certain disc's like dvd-r or dvd+r check to see if the burned disc is the same as the original? Second Could be that you really did not finalize? good luck, safety first..
