Question about Sony RDR-VX530 DVD Recorder/VCR

2 Answers

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.

VCR PLAY FOR A FEW SECONDS AND THEN QUITS


Dirty heads? Need cleaning. General cleaning of all internal pinchers and rollers. Sometimes the tape is at fault. Try another just in case. I think it is time for a good cleaning. Also the eject cartridge can sometimes get bent and cause misalignment of the VHS tape and the rollers, etc....

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.

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.

VHS to DVD


I just bought at Best Buy the Samsung DVD Recorder & VCR. You can copy your VHS tapes right to DVD and or hook up an external source into the deck and copy them to DVD.  I find it working well but many of my tapes have tracking issues which is becoming a hurdle for myself.
