Re: standby

If both decks have a disc or tape in it , the unit shut down because of a power supply glitch or a mechanical trouble shut down the system control system. One way to possibly get them out is unplug unit for a few hours or overnight even better. Before you plug back in press the eject button and hold it in while you plug it in. Dont let go untill the tape comes out. Now if it comes out then unplug the unit anf replug back in and wait a few secs. to let it reset and do its thing. then see if it will turn on and try to eject the disc. if this dosent work then its a power supply problem and its going to need serviceing unless you know your way aroundservo controls and power supplys . Remeber always unplug these units as they do have voltages on the primary side of the transformer that can bite ya. Good Luck

How do i select finalise on sharp dv-rw 250h remote control

If you are using the original remote or one which matches all of the functions, make sure that no DVD or VHS tape is being played and that the recorder is on. Make sure that there is sufficient space left on the disc. (The space needed depends on chapter/disc titles.) Then press Setup on the remote; it should be below the arrow keys but the position may vary. Use the Up/Down arrows to select System Setup and press Enter. Select Disc Setup and press Enter. Select Finalise and press Enter. Select Start with the Right/Left arrows and press Enter. Wait for the procedure to finish.

Note: only discs recorded on this particular device can be finalized on the DV-RW250H. On some other Sharp DVD recorders, the Disc Menu is accessed directly from the Setup menu.

I hope this helps.

How do I get the DVD to record what is on the VHS tape not the TV?

You can record from an external component, such as a camcorder or VCR, connected to any of the Recorder's external inputs.
1. Make sure that the component you want to record from is connected properly to the Recorder. See page 14.

2. Press AUX repeatedly to select the external input to record from.
• AV1: Audio/Video Input mounted on back panel.
• AV2: Audio/Video Input mounted on front panel.
• DV: DV Input mounted on front panel.

page 37 from manual:

If this fails, try to disconnect the tv input cable and connect the vcr cable.

My VHS-to-DVD Burned Disc used to work and now it doesn't


It could be your disc is scratched or DVD+R can't be read in the DVD player. Check for any scratches. Then pop in the disc in to your PC DVD, to see if it's readable.

Can you record a playing vhs video to a dvd on sharp dv rw250?

Yes, you can do this if you have a VCR that has a channel on the VHS part of the unit that shows your DVD screen (see instruction manual for better explanation). The Sharp unit that you have might have this feature, if not then look at your instruction manual for how to hook up the VCR part of your unit to an external DVD player. Good luck to you!

VHS won't work

Had the same problem on my JVC vcr/dvd combo unit.
You need to turn off the timer function. I did this by making sure my remote was in the "VHS" mode...turn the swith from TV to the right (found on the remote in the upper left then hit the "vcr" button. Then point the remote at the VCR unit and hit the No. 4 button (timer turns off). Your unit should not have the red timer displayed and you should be able to play your tapes okay.

Hope this helps.

On some of the DVD/VCR combo units, the VCR output is only available through the RF jack (channel 3), standard video1.gif (yellow) RCA jack and S-VIDEO jack. If you are using the Component jacks, the DVD side will work but the VCR will not. This is because the quality of video recorded on VHS tapes is so much lower than component quality video.
Thank you for rating this solution.

Hitachi DV-PF33U DVD Player / VCR Combo

It sounds like the sensor to tell the microcontroller that the tape is moving is not working. If that is so, the VCR would probably do the same thing in FF or Rewind. If you end up taking this unit into a repair shop, have them check the DVD's software version (it should be 1.250) If below that number, have them upgrade that as well. You can check the version yourself by pressing 1,2,3,4 and then "display" on the remote while the unit is on and no disc in DVD. After noting the version, just hit "power" on the remote to exit this mode.
