When inserting vhs tape, the player pulls the tape from inserted vhs
That is exactly what a typical M-Load mechanism is supposed to do. Once the VHS tape cassette is inserted, cassette housing cover will be flipped up and two arms will pull tape out of cassette housing to wrap tape around cylindrical spinning head housing that contains video heads and, if VHS HI-FI, audio heads as well. When stop or eject button is pressed, arms will retract and tape will wind back into cassette housing. What type of problem are you experiencing with unit? It may have nothing to do with M-load engaging tape around head cylinder.

Vcr - dvd player problems
I just got done recording a vhs to dvd and it worked great. Also you can print the manual at manualsonline.com or something like that.. google it, i printed mine. I had to watch the enitre vhs to record it. As you are playing the vhs (right at the beginning) push the blue D. Dubbing button then when its done playing push stop on the DVD side it will say writing to disk on the bottom once thats done ooha la!! I am trying to figure out if there is a way to dub a vhs to dvd without having to watch the howl movie but unfortunatley I don't think there is!

Black box on screen blocking view of movie
A medium sized black box in the middle of the screen indicates the text feature is engaged.
For several years in the settings on many sets with closed captioning there was a option for "TEXT" and the idea was books and other written things could be transmitted on certain channels.
This never really got off the ground but millions of sets have this feature.
The TEXT box can come from one of two places:
In the set's customer menu look for CC (closed caption) and make sure TEXT IS NOT HIGHLIGHTED.
If you are using a cable or satellite box etc it can also come from that.
If you find it selected for TEXT 1 (there are 1-4 in most sets) either turn it to off or select something other than TEXT 1 and the box should go away. It could also be coming from an external source of something else connected to the set but this is not likely.
Check first CC with the set's remote to see what is turned on or off and LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU FIND.
