Question about Sony RDR-VX555
We haven't used our unit for awhile. We are following the directions, but no light goes on to show that it's transferring from the vcr to dvd. It doesn't work when we push the vcr botton to record. It plays vcrs and dvds fine though.
Make sure the DVD-R is 8x or SLOWER. They are difficult to find these days. The unit will not not give any specific warning when a faster disc is used, it just doesn't work. The burner is simply an IDE drive, so it is upgradeable, should you wish to risk that route.

Does the machine record on to + or - DVDR?
If it does both try each type. Also try high quality discs, some of the cheaper types won't work. Try it on different speeds too.

You need to "finalize" the dvd you created - usually on the machine that you created it on. The SONY RDR-VX525 finishes recording, then you have to go to the system menu and follow the prompts to do the "finalize". As it's finalizing, it should the word finalize on the front panel display. It'll run about a minute or two and then just stop without telling you what it did. It should be ready to play on any dvd player.
