Question about Emerson EWD2202 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

I have recorded from Vhs tape to a DVD-R. When I insert DVD-R to play in Emerson EWD2202 it tells me that playback feature may not be available on this disc. Emerson's manual says it will play DVD-R. What's wrong?

Without sounding too pretentious, I would first advise you to use a QUALITY disc for exactly this reason! Don't be afraid to spend a little more on some TDK or Hitachi/Maxell DVDs! **** DVDs will fail as much as 25-40% of the time, making them no bargain at all!!

That being said, I would also inquire as to exactly what methods/products were used in the transfer process. There are several different ways of writing data to the disc (DAO, TAO, etc...), as well as many different video formats (did you select "Make a video CD" from your application? This will only work in digital video disc players, NOT DVD players!). Only a few (if that) will typically work on any given player.

On that note, my advice would first be to copy the data from the disc back onto your PC if possible (if it isn't still there already), or even from the VHS tape again, and take a look at the file name, particularly the extension, of the copied video file(s). If the extension is not .mpg or .mpeg, then it is NOT in DVD format, and converting to the appropriate format would be a necessary part of your transfer process. Also, make sure you are creating a DVD, not a video disc! They are different! Rewrite the data to the disc in the appropriate format on good quality media using the same process as before and you should be good to go!

I hope this helps! If not, please comment with any additional information and I will respond ASAP and we will get things figured out for you. Thanks for your questions!

If it won't PLAY VHS tapes it must have a serious mechanical problem (if it even loads) or its heads are glommed up, so it obviously won't record them either. When's the last time you ran a cleaning tape through it?


Solve the load or playback problem and it will probably record.

Copy from vhs to dvd- want to speed process ???


I'm afraid, VHS tape have to be playback on standard speed for good picture and sound and dvd would also burn accordingly.
Noo way for fast dubbing because VHS tape video is analog signal that changed into digital signal in circuits to write on dvd disc.
I hope you understand how this dubbing works.

Playback Problem


open the recorder, 4 screws at each corner, wipe the playing head and the voice reccognition head, to the right of the playing head head with a baby wipe, you will be amiazed what **** comes off it. DON'T scrub it just wipe lightly, spin the playing head so it's clean. If you have a lint free cloth ( a glasses cleaning cloth you get in the case is brilliant) Try the tape (before you put it in make sure everything is DRY!) and your problem should be solved. It worked for me! and that came from a TV engineer

1. Insert a blank DVD disc in the DVD deck and
close the disc tray.
2. Insert the VHS video tape you wish to copy into

record.

Mode: EP, LP, SP or XP.

7. To stop dubbing at any other time, press STOP (x).
Dubbing will stop automatically when the VHS tape ends.

How to set up to copying a video tape.


This is a snap, as long as you have a second VCR if not you can't do it.

1. Hook the out put line(s) from VCR1 to the input line(s) on VCR2.
2. Put recorded tape into VCR1 and press play.
3. Set VCR2 to the channel that VCR1 is playing on, it's usually 3 or 4.
4. rewind the recorded tape and put the blank into VCR2.
5. Press record on VCR 2 and play on VCR1.
if you want an exact copy stop here. . . or
6. pause VCR2 when ever something comes up you don't want to record, ie a commercial if you'r re-recording a movie from TV. be for warned though each time you re-record an analog recording, like a VHS tape, the audio and vido tracks get further and further apart. After about the second or third time you re-record a tape you'll hear something before you see it, or vice-versa. I hope this helps you out.

No playback


The dvd player does not recognize discs above 2x. I contacted Emerson, they have a software upgrade they will send you for free, but you have to ask for it. I think it gives the player the ability to read up to 8x.

VHS tapes are black and white


The tapes are B/W or one of the playback video heads is not making contact with the tape. The video head may need to be adjusted. You can take it in to get it fixed or buy a new one. The unit today is worth around $25-$30.

Unit powering off unable to stay on


mine did the same thing. Try this turn the power on with the remote, hit the record button and the tape should come out. This means that you need to record something.
