Question about GoVideo VR5940 DVD Recorder/VCR
For some reason when I place a regular VHS tape in the machine and try to copy it over to the DVD, it stops recording and comes up with the message copyrighted protected, with a button for yes only. These are tapes that I have made myself, they are not copyright protected. I purchased blank VHS tapes at the store and now I am getting this copyright protected message and it will not copy what is on the VHS tapes to the DVD. How can I correct this problem?
Don't know your machine, but is it possible that it's seeing your source tape as write protected (missing tab) and so assuming it should not be copied to the DVD?

The mechanism of your VCR has jammed with video casette tape. If tape ribbon has got twisted around the drum motor head, or the belt that connected to eject [capstan] motor has elongated, this type of fault will occur. Either it will play, rewind, fast forward of eject. Just replace the belts first. In most VCRs the user can replace the belt from underside. Let the tape is there, if it is in, replace all the belts. Belts can be bought from most of the electronic spare part shops at your town. It will come as kit type, each model has its own belt kit, and you have to give them the exact model number of your VCR. Just open the cover of the VCR, and look for tape ribbon twist if any. If it is there, remove it carefully without making damage to any other internal parts, especially to video head. If necessary, cut the tape film. If tape twist is only the problem, it will be rectifed as this twist has been removed. If this also doesn't help you, replace all the belts. OK.
