Magnavox ZV450MW8 VHS to DVD Dubbing not working

I follow the manual instructions to the letter and even got a DVD that will burn (Sony DVD-R). When I hit the Dub Start after placing the VHS on Pause, all I get recorded is the TV Feed going into the unit.

Most commercial tapes have anti-copying feature imbedded in the signal. Often this is a kind of "burp" in the horizontal synch signal. I don't know if they are still available but a few years ago my boss obtained a "horizontal stabilization" box that did the trick for most tapes. We actually used it for legitimate image stabilization when using tapes with older video projectors. It cost (about 7 years ago) around $40.00 and was purchased at a little electronics parts store.

Please thank Stu for scanning this. I have uploaded the manual to my personal web page. Just click the link and the word document will download. (why is it so hard to record with this thing? Shouldn't there just be one button? Broksonic has taken years off my life, but not anymore)

SOURCE: VHS to DVD Dubbing Problem

I have the same problem. I saw a solution that said I needed to set my cable to a non-premium channel like NBC, ABC, PBS, CSPAN in order to allow the dubbing to occur without the +VR problem. At first, I thought it was a stupid solution; but guess what, It worked. I just set my cable box to from HBO to CSPAN,restarted the dubbing from VCR to DVD and it worked. Now the question is: Why do I have to change the channel when I'm dubbing from VCR to DVD?
This worked for me..still trying to figure out why it worked???

Depending on the procedure you may be pressing the record button instead of the D.Dubbing or Dubbing button. When recording from VHS to DVD you must first, load the blank DVD and VHS home movies, then play the VHS movies, then PAUSE the VHS movie when you want to START recording... then the only the you have to do is pressing the D.Dubbing button or the Dubbing button. If your VHS tapes starts to play after the Dubbing button is pressed you have been successful in Dubbing.

Make sure that your system is on VHS before you press the dub button. you should then get a box that asks you do you want to record from VHS to DVD and it asks you to confirm this. you press the left arrow button so that the yes box is highlighted and then press enter and your dubbing should begin.

Lost manual for DVD Recorder/VCR ZV450MW8 Need instructions to copy DVD Disk to VDD Disk or e-mail manual


To dub a DVD, first press Setup on the remote. Then select Recording (use the Up/Down arrows and then press OK). Navigate to and select Dubbing Mode. Select the direction for the duplication. Then press Setup to leave the Setup menu. Then press DVD to ensure that the unit is ready to play the DVD. (Press VCR if you are dubbing a video tape.) Then Press Play to advance to the section that you wish to duplicate, if needed, and then press Pause. (Press Pause a bit early; the dubbing process will lose about 5 seconds.) Now, press the other Mode button (VCR if recording to tape, DVD if recording to DVD). Next press D.Dubbing on the recorder or the remote. (The button is to the right of the Channel Up/Down buttons on the recorder. It's near the bottom left on the remote.) Press Stop when the section to be duplicated has been played in its entirety.

The Magnavox ZV450MW8 was manufactured by Funai with the Magnavox name. Thus Funai Service has the manual available: http://www.funaiservice.com/manual2012_search2.php . The direct link is http://www.funaiservice.com/manuals/MAGNAVOX/ZV450MW8/ZV450MW8.pdf . The directions for dubbing a DVD to VCR or vice versa start on page 48. Note: copy protected items cannot be duplicated.

I hope this helps.

Screen goes black as soon as i push record on dvd when trying to record vhs to dvd on magnavox combo player


Dubbing does the media transfer automatically, not by playback and record. you select vcr to dvd then do dubbing. Please read the manual. and try all the controls.

How can I record from dvd to vcr? Is that possible?


Yes! Just be sure to use the remote, and when you enter "General" features... Look for recording, or Dubbing. Under dubbing... It should allow you to choose which way you wan the recording to go. For example, VHS>DVD or DVD>VHS... Then, install the blank in one side, the movie in the other, and hit the "Dubbing" RECORD button. this should work. Also, most companies now have their documentation, even for very old units, online should you need the instruction manual which originally came with your unit. Good luck!
