Question about Sony RDR-VX530 DVD Recorder/VCR

Vhs stuck - plastic roller part floting inside case.

I rarely use the vhs but needed to make a copy of a vhs to dvd. Pop vhs in and it got stuck, recorde powered itself off. removed case to free tape, tape had not gotten far enough to come out of the cartage.
Problem is i found a plactic part with a roller which is the reason the tape got stuck. How can I determine if I can fix this part (snap back in place) or take it to a repair shop (which may never happen given how much I don't use the vhs half of the unit). Benny

You could probably do it yourself, but it would be best if you got professional help, you know, just in case if you don't know where the part went.

Power off when inserting vhs tape


I had this problem when copying an old family vhs tape. I had to unscrew the top of the magnavox to access the vhs tape. Then, I gently removed the tape and replaced the cover. After winding the tape back, I put it in the player and immediately pushed fast forward for about 3 seconds before hitting play followed by d.dubbing. I was able to make a copy of the tape and did not damage my original.

Hello, we are having an error pop up and I was wondering if it can be fixed here or if we will need to call in an expert and do some repairs/replacements on the device. We have a Cannon Imagerunner 5000...


Hello,
this is error related to the fixing web cleaning belt. Sthis error appears after certain number of copies and means that you need to replace it.
For first aid you can clear the error in service mode. To do this on copier panel:
1) Press the user mode key ( ) on the control panel.
2) Press the 2 and 8 keys at the same time.
3) Press the user mode key ( )
Choose:
COPIER>COUNTER>MISC>FIX-WEB
and
COPIER>COUNTER>DRBL-1>FX-WEB

Turn the copier off and back on.

Now you can copy/print, but call service support for fixing web replacement.

Hope that helps!

P.S.
In rare cases, E005 can occure because broken web clutch or if you do not copy in big ammount, so the web gets stuck on fixing roller and the E005 rises because the web clutch cant operate.

I've got some rare 80s movies on VHS that are not available on DVD. I want to transfer these movies to DVD, but my VCR/DVD combo unit will not allow me to burn a copy-protected VHS movie. Is there any way...


as i recall VHS cassettes have a hole on front (where is the label with name of movie ) which disables re-recording over original movie. if that isn`t the problem,you can try with connecting your VCR to PC inputing audio and video cable to PC. requirements for this recording from VCR to PC is that PC has graphic card with audio-video input.

Well ont eject all the way out


There is a problem with the loading basket, or the VHS tape is stuck inside and the eject mechanism can not cycle the tape out. To check this, open the lid so you can see the tape, if it is wrapped around the head and roller, hit the eject button to see if the tape is being pulled or jammed, cut the tape with scissors to free it up to see if it will pop out. If the tape is okay, it means you have a faulty loading basket.

Are you trying to copy a comercial VHS tape to DVD?
If you are then macrovision copy protection system on either the tape or in the machine is the reason for the loss of colour.
There's not a lot you can do about it. If you want to copy commercial material you will need to transfer it to a computer and get a program to do it. But unless it's unavailable it is cheaper to buy the DVD version I have found and you will get better picture and sound too!
If it does it with a none comercial tape (ie something recorded of the TV). Then it could be a head fault or something else. In which case try cleaning all the heads guides etc first.

VHS tape plays for a few seconds and automatically ejects


My guess would be dirt on the rollers inside the VCR. They sesnse a jam and ejct. Try a VCR cleaner (with cleaning fluid) and see if that helps.

Can't copy to DVD


Most movies , on VHS , need a small decryption device to get rid of the ( Macrovision) protection, which will not let you record from VHS to DVD. I have one here that I use , works perfectly. It also decrypts from DVD to DVD , in case you need to back up a movie. Kids are allways banging DVD with scratches and it's not to copy the original & give them the copy to mess with, that way you allways have a perfect one in stock. If you ever need a converter , I have one left but works great. emailme:peppersradio@videotron.ca if interested?

Recording purchased vhs tape to dvd recorder.


How old is the VHS tape? I've had success recording older movies, but the newer ones have encryption to prevent duplication of them. I've even tried playing them on another VCR and transmitting the signal with a wireless audio/video transmitter but unfortunately the encryption is still there. If you can copy the tape to another tape, then it may not have encryption. If that's the case, check you A/V inputs to see if you have them setup right.
