    I am helping my dad with his dvd/vhs player. He said it hasn’t worked right from the start. It will play a very few DVD’s like 2 or 3. I had looked at it & when you put a DVD in it will not spin & then I get error please remove disc. The only one that I got to run was a DVD that was made on a computer. I went to the Emerson site not much help there. I have also gone through the troubleshooting section. Any help would be great. Thank you Mike.

You're not telling much besides the fact that it doe'snt work. One thing to try offcourse is cleaning the lense inside, remove cover and gently brush dust off etc. If there's no dust build up, then I guess its just another emerson gone bad, NOT a rare occasion. Use the warranty if valid, otherwise consider if the repair cost is worth it, or if you rather getting another DVD player that you can count on. Good luck

OK, first go through these steps:
(if they doesn't work, then you have to say good bye to the combo.

1.) check if your DVDs aren't scratched (very common)
2.) check if your DVDs aren't dirty (eg. somebody held it in his hands after he ate a juicy marmelade bread)
3.) Try to clean the head (lens) of your DVD player with a cleaning DVD (at least 5 times).

How do I dub a VCR tape to a DVD. Also is the

You need a DVD recorder. Hook the VCR to the inputs on that and you will be set. Just put a blank DVD+/-R in, hit record, then hit play on the VCR.

If you don't have a DVD recorder you'd have to capture it into a computer and convert it to DVD format then burn to disc.

Do you know why the tape was stuck? How did you get it out? On most vcr's there's a mode switch connected to the mechanics of the vcr. If the mode switch isn't in stop position, the unit will try to get it there and shut off if it can't. Bad belts, bad idler wheel, dirty mode switch, mechanical timing off (maybe due to forcing a stuck tape out?)... all these can cause this.
