Customer Question

I own a Funai ZV427FX4 Combination VCR and DVD Recorder. I suddenly noticed that only certain functions on the remote to this work (just occurred earlier tonight). For instance, I can use play, stop, and setup menu buttons, but other buttons like record mode and dubbing will not work. Are the batteries in the remote simply dying, or does something like this normally happen on funai remotes? I would like to use the record speed function right now, but the only way I know of to change rec speed is using the rec mode button on the remote (no button for changing recording speeds on the vcr/dvd itself that I can see). Thanks

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, replace the batteries. This is both an attempt of a fix and as a requisite for another test should it be needed.

Please post back results / observations of the above once tried.
