Machine keeps saying
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.

I'm having an odd problem with my Sylvania
> Do I need to update the firmware?
If you are lucky; Sylvania is a branch of Funai which is the 'bottom of the barrel' on quality so it may be just another case of Funai-ism.
Other brands belonging to Funai:
Symphonic, Emerson, Aventura, Durabrand, ESA, Magnavox, INSIGNIA, Philips and Misakai
I earned part of my income from servicing consumer electronics some years ago and historically, Funai gear has been among the worst built.

contacting Sylvania customer support with the model and serial number of your television, which can be found on the back of the set. Sylvania's toll-free support number for LCD television sets is (866) 321-3927. Call (800) 968-3429 if you have an old tube-type (Cathode Ray Tube) Sylvania television.

DVD Recorder tells me it cannot record on disc
You can't use 16x or anything that says 1x-16x or 1x-4x.
The 4X speed DVD-R are difficult to find. (Tried Office Depot,OfficeMax, Staples, Microcenter,Best Buy and Walgreens!) Finally found Princo brand at checkoutstore.com
They worked great!

Sylvania dvr90vf dvd recorder
Unfortunately without a firmware upgrade the only disks you can use are DVD-R or DVD-RW. The tricky part is that you can ONLY USE 2X speed. Per my conversation with Sylvania there is a firmware update that will allow you to use up to 8x disks, but they are charging $17.00 for it.

Sometimes it can record on DVD-R Sony sometimes it doesn't.
So now I get an e-mail from Fix Ya asking me if I found a solution, if not they offer me a PREMIUM (Charge)Plan to help me solve the problem.
If I have solved my problem they want me to tell them how I fixed it for FREE.
Do you guys at Fix Ya use us as your employees to solve others problems and you collect the money? That is such a shame!

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.
