Check the cassette housing - the flexible cable in the housing may break, resulting in problems with large tapes.

Recorder stops recording from vhs tapes after about a minute


Some VHS tapes have copyright signals embedded in them. Then when the DVD recorder reads the copyright signal it will stop recording due to it thinking there is a copyright violation happening. Try testing with a VHS TAPE of a show you have recorded off the TV and see if it does the same thing .,

The recording set-up must have been program to record only in 5 minutes. You could play around with the remote and try to enter the record set-up. The problem with the VCR must be a worn-out belt or a dirty loading mechanism. You could try to replace the belt or clean the surface area where all the mechanism slide together or make contacts and put an small amount of recommended grease or petroleum jelly.

Is there a better (brand) tape to use with a Elura 90? I read somewhere that certain tapes had more problems than others. Thanks, Joe


One thing that can change the tape quality is making sure you are using th 60 minute recording mode vs the 90 minute EP recording mode. If you record alot, you should clean the tape heads every 6 months as well. I haven't really found any bad tapes out there (I'm sure there are some). Usually Sony and JVC are good choices to use.

If the take up reel is not working properly the slack in tape drive will cause poor recordings and shut downs.

Dub VHS to DVD


I am not sure why the DVD recorder is stopping after 25 mins of recording. However, once a disk is finalized all the remaining space is unrecordable. That is why your computer is showing the disk as full. The same applies when finalizing a CD. As for the first problem, check to see what record speed you are using. XP is 1 hr, SP 2hr and so on. But stopping after 25 minutes is weird. Even if you use a quick record button, (aka OTR) the recording is usually done in 30 minute increments. Try it again. If it still is only recording for 25 minutes, you may want to contact the manufacture's customer service or tech support. Hope it helps.
