Question about Televison & Video
Do a hard reset. Just unplug the power cord for 30 minutes to an hour. When you power it up again it will reset all the internal soft codes inside the dvd player mechanisms.
then you might want to get inside and see if there is something obstructing the mechanism. If not, then it is a servo system failure and the IC will need to be replaced - - - at a cost of more than the price of a new dvd player (which can be connected to the aux input on the tv). You can buy a replacement dvd player for $28 and up.

Ok it has nothing to do with power like these other techs think, it is the mechanism in the dvd drive they break or come off there rails constantly, it is repairable by yourself but it is tricky it is not worth having it repaired cos you can buy a brand new one cheaper, does the vcr drive take the tapes or does it not work at all?

Kindly tell me the make and model of your DVD player for further assistance. If you yourself can find the reset button then press it yourself. Remove your DVD player from power source for 5 minutes and then reconnect. Remember you have to remove every wire connected to your DVD because even from output it can get 5 volts.

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
