Re: dvd not recording
Try some Verbatim. They work in almost everything.
Also, some recorders record only +R, or only -R discs. Make sure you have the right ones.
Maxells that are made in Japan are the good ones. Not the ones made
in Taiwan. TDK isn't among our favorites either. If the TDKs work in
computer, you may have to watch them in computer too. If they won't
record in recorder, they probably won't play in it either

Daewoo DVD Recorder/VCR combi (I believe the model number is DF-4100P it wont record on disc but it will on tape mode plus the drawer in the dvd wont open please can someone send me an answer of whats wrong with it thank you
I found this solution on one of your old notes (but a different machine). I set up a scheduled record for 11:59 PM to 12:01 AM for the current day, then set up the scheduled record for the next day. The VCR recorded both the initial 2 minute session and the later one which I wanted to record.
No you cannot - This is a DVD *PLAYER* / VCR combo - which means it features a DVD player & VHS recorder in one - you cannot record onto DVD - You can however watch a DVD while recording your tv program on the VCR.
I hope this answers your question.
If you want to convert your VHS to DVD you will need to purchase a standalone DVD recorder - I personally do not reocmmend the DVD recorder / VCR combos - or you can use a HDD/DVD recorder which stores recordings on a hard drive and later you can burn them on DVD, they allow editing, more flexible recording options, etc
I've had this problem myself and a list of others. FYI, I've found it easier to use dvd-rw discs
for any mistakes you might make. Use Video mode (not VR mode) if you want to watch them
on a Computer or other DVD again and you have to Finalize disc. As for your problem, if all
else is okay, try removing your disc and unplugging the unit. I've done this numerous times
for odd reasons something wasn't working right. I'm not sure how long you have to keep it
unplugged. Try 10 minutes and you'll have to wait 30 minutes or more if you want the clock
to sync up on its own but you can set the clock manually. I've done this for a blinking
REC light in the VCR mode after trying the TIMER REC button.(it shouldn't be blinking
when the unit's working properly) This gets to be a pain and I've had to do this sometimes
2 days later or 6 months later. It's not a perfect unit. By the way, if times an issue, reset the
clock manually as soon as it starts blinking. This will cut your reset down to 11-12 minutes.
Hope this helps.
Most of the time, the VCR cleaning tapes are not very good.
Take the VCR to the local TV service shop in your area, and pay them the few dollars for a proper manual cleaning.
After a few years of use, the transport may need a new pinch roller, belts, idler wheel, head cleaner sponge, and some other pieces. Most of the manufactures are no longer supplying replacement parts for VCR servicing, but the manufactures used to sell a maintenance kit for their models. This kit used to cost about $15 to $40 depending on the model of the VCR.
You can research how to do the manual cleaning yourself, but if you are not experienced you take the chance to damage your VCR. The heads, and the guide alignments are very critical. You may also need to change some parts.
If the VCR still does not perform after the cleaning, then there are fault conditions. The machine will then need proper service.
