    There is no picture and no sound when the VHS tape is inserted.

    Despite checking I have connected the cables correctly, I am unable to play or record VHS tapes on my Samsung DVDV6800. When I insert a tape, there is no picture and the VCR stops and ejects the tape.

    There is nothing wrong with the tapes as I have been able to play them on other VHS recorder. I think the problem is with the Samsung DVDV6800.

There should be a button that changes the player from dvd to vcr. DVD/VCR
If you've pressed this button and you still are unable to play,fastforward,or rewind the tape; Then the player's motor is shot.

If the tape is faulty to make it proper just try this Take a good tape of little value. For instance a promotional tape. Open both the good and bad tape. Discard the actual tape of the VHS cass. that works. Transplant the tape from the defective cass. in the working housing. And presto, one restored VHS cass. (if the actual tape is damaged byond repair this will not solve your problem).

    You are right, problem i with Samsung DVDV6800 VHS Mechanism and it looks like that VHS tape is not being loaded completely due to some mechanical misalignment. System control chip waits for a while for loading of tape and then unload it to eject due to error.
    Samsung DVDV6800 should be checked by local qualified tech or if it is under warranty then call Samsung guys to fix it.
    This is not user level repair.

If the entire VHS is full then you can easily transfer the VHS contents to the DVD. The video will play while it is recording onto the DVD, but you don't have to have it hooked up to any TV for it to record. Now if you don't know how long the VHS content is that you want to record to DVD, then you will have to hook up the player to a TV so that you can press stop when you reach the end of the content you want recorded. At least this is true in the way that I use to transfer VHS to DVD:

1) Turn on the unit
2) Insert VHS tape
3) Insert DVD-+R or DVD-+ RW
4) Using remote, press VCR
5)Using remote, press play then pause the tape where you want to start recording.
6)Using remote, press DVD
7) Using the remote, press DUBBING. The VHS should start to play and the DVD should start recording

When using this method, don't hit the RECORD button!

I hope this helps!

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.


Time and poor storage conditions are the mortal enemies of tapes. Store the in a 'played

My JVC DR-MV150B plays prerecorded VHS tapes fine.


Try opening the front hatch of the tape by pressing the small, square button on the right or left (short) side of the tape. Check the black tape inside for any marks, dirt, scratches, tears, etc. If the tape is fine then your unit needs to be cleaned with a tape cleaner available at any electronics specialty or retail store. Good luck to you!

I have a Magnavox ZV427MG9. I follow all directions in manual for dubbing VHS home movies to DVD but when I try to play the DVD back there's nothing on them.What am I doing wrong?


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.
