20 Most Recent Emerson EWD2204 DVD Player/VCR Questions & Answers


Assuming there is not a forgotten tape stuck in the VCR side, the mode selection logic has gotten all confused. On the VCR side, a tape is grabbed and loaded to be played. There probably is an EJECT button that is enabled for later use. The DVD side is disabled so no buttons work. On the DVD side, the open/close button is enabled (if no VCR-side problem is detected), allowing you to place a DVD in the tray and close it to play. The VCR side is disabled so no buttons work. That's the theory. From your description a sensor on the VCR side may have failed or been damaged, causing the player to keep reverting to VCR and preventing use of the DVD side.

if the outer case says no user serviceable parts inside, I would speculate no...sometimes they solder these connections into the circuit board so you are better to get another box than fix the one you have..

you must have a emerson dvd recorder and just connect the cables to one machine to another.

No. It's tuner is analog. However, your cable company may still broadcast some analog channels. But if that's the case, your TV will pick up the same channels.

if your not a technician dont try to open your player, most of fuse now is the holder near where the ac cord is soldered, if the fuse is busted most of the problem is the power regulator.

If you have HD TV it is best to hook up the DVD player separately.

The easiest way to connect this is to find the cable going from the receiver to the TV and disconnect it from the TV. Connect this cable to the back of the DVD player where it says "in" or "input".
Next take another cable and connect it from the DVD player output to the TV. Make sure your TV set is tuned to the correct channel and input and you're all set. If you need further assistance please reply here and I will see to it this gets resolved.

What code

Emerson EWD2204... | Answered on Apr 20, 2011


I would say yes - it might be time to replace the whole unit. It sounds like the laser has failed completely in this player or is too weak to read the signals from each disc that is inserted. The problem is this part is not repairable at any level, it would need to be replaced, but this is not economical (assuming the parts are available), due to the expensive added labour costs involved.

In the long term, it is cheaper and easier to simply buy a new unit (combos still exist and the replacement unit does not need to be brand spanking new in a box either - but a manufacturer refurbished one with a warranty is acceptable if you can find such a unit).

Since this is not a DVD recorder, nor is it a Blu-Ray player, it might be time to put this one to bed - but you can always submit it to a service centre for a quote on the likely cost(s) and get a second opinion - then you will know for sure where you stand.

Only replace the combo unit as a last resort.

Hello
Check the remote contro for its infrared emission. You can check it with a cellphone with camera option. Put the cellphone to camera mode, and place the remotes' front end towards its lens, at about one feet away from it, and press each button on the remote control. If there is infrared emission from it, you can see its image on cellphone camera screen. If not check the remote control. Check the battery polarity. If it is alright, you have to open it to see whether there is any loose soldering points developed or not.
If ther is infrared emission from the remote, and still the TV doesn't respond to it, surely the infrared sensor inside the TV is faulty, and should be replaced with same type and number. OK.

Unfortunately your particular player does not have the zoom function built into it. The only way you will be able to zoom your picture is if your TV has that functionality built in.

Get a good universal remote. Program which device you need. It will also instruct you on how to use shift keys for your old remote. Saves you a lot of money to replace the old one.

A very likely situation could be that the VHS DECK ASSEMBLY has a jam or a problem. Remove the case of the unit and check for any damages or loose mechanisms, if all works ok and looks ok, slowy , carefully put a tape into the unit and see if there are any jams or anything stopping it from moving.
