Panasonic recorded dvds? what's up?

I have successfully dubbed vhs tapes into dvd format and they play on the Panasonic DVD player BUT THEY WON'T PLAY ON MY SONY DVD RECORDER??? Do I need to "format"the dubbed dvds? I had thought the vhs to dvd format didn't require a "finalizing" procedure?

    i transfered(dubbing from VHS to DVD, when it stopped recording Recorder freezes. Can't get dvd out, VHS comes out only. Can not open to get DVD, or turn off recorder. can not go in any funtion. Can't even watch the tv because it's through the recorder and can't turn it off and can't change channel. The only thing I can do is unplug and start over. Try again and it does the same thing. I did 1 tape yesterday, read up and finalized it today. AFter I did the finalizing on the one tape I'm having this problem.

    What can I do to correct this?

You may have a head alignment issue with your machine. This is a basic repair. Contact an electronics repair shop and have them quote you. They usually will charge you a diagnostics fee as a minimum.

I cannot get it to record a vhs tape to a dvd. The vcr will play tapes and the dvd player will play dvds. I need some one to walk me through what buttons to push to record.


You need a remote to setup the dvd record and vcr record. Then you have to do dvd initialization perhaps before you can dub from tape to dvd?

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.

JVC SR-DVM600 Dubbing from HDD to DVD Problem


Have you tried using a different brand disc. When I first purchased my DVM-600 it would not record on Memorex discs. I purchased TDK -R discs and all is fine. In the old-school analog world, all specific format tapes were computable to all machines. In other words, a VHS tape recorded in your VHS recorder will play back in my machine and every other VHS machine. Because the DVD format has so many formats and standards, compatability issues are quite common.

Insert the VHS tape. Do not press play. Insert a DVD RAM or DVD-R into the DVD side and press and hold DVD DUBBING, it should start playing the VHS immediately while recording on the DVD side.
