    try cleaning the laser lens , and if you deleted info on the hard drive(hdd) that is for the system , then you will have to get a software disc and or software update disc from funai for the hdd , do not try to use a computer to format the hdd , files from funai are put on there to control or update the system.

Can you record a dvd from vhs on this system ?

No you cannot - This is a DVD *PLAYER* / VCR combo - which means it features a DVD player & VHS recorder in one - you cannot record onto DVD - You can however watch a DVD while recording your tv program on the VCR.

I hope this answers your question.

If you want to convert your VHS to DVD you will need to purchase a standalone DVD recorder - I personally do not reocmmend the DVD recorder / VCR combos - or you can use a HDD/DVD recorder which stores recordings on a hard drive and later you can burn them on DVD, they allow editing, more flexible recording options, etc

Recording from VCR to HDD

The VCR tape contains a copy inhibitor along it's length, so cannot be copied. the only way to make a copy is to use a truly analog route, without any copyright checking getting in the way. I think this is mentioned in the manual.
