Panasonic DMR-ES30 error Cannot dub VHS side is busy

Please help. My Panasonic DMR-ES30 crashed during dubbing a VHS tape and switched itself off. I replugged it all and it started, working and recording OK separately, but refusing to dub the tape with the error Cannot dub. VHS side is busy. Also check standby mode for timer recording on VHS. (Enter/Return) I tried a different video tape and a different DVD, same thing. The dubbing button just flashes a few times and nothing happens. As if the system still thinks it is recording from before the crash. Any ideas? Thank you in advance

SOURCE: My Panasonic DMR-EH60 powers down

This is either a software bug on this system or a setting in the menu that is set to shut down after every disc burn. Have you gone through the menu / setup of the dvd player to look for such an option? I am not seeing one in any documentation but that is the only thing that makes sense. Either that or you have a glitchy version of the software on the system, which is almost a manufacturing defect...

How do you record dvd to vhs and from vhs to dvd


For VHS to DVD, put the tape to dub in the VHS slot and a blank DVD in the DVD tray. Make sure the DVD is compatible with the DVD recorder (see the recommended disc list) and is unfinalized if you are using a R/W disc. Close the tray. Set the unit to VCR mode with the DVD/VCR button. Advance the tape to the place that you want the recording to start. Then press the Dubbing button (either on the remote or the unit itself). Select the recording mode (SP, LP etc), highlight Dubbing then press Enter or Dubbing. Press Stop to interrupt the recording.

For DVD to VHS, put a blank tape in the VCR (make sure the protection tab has not been broken off) and the DVD to duplicate in the DVD tray and close the tray. Put the unit in DVD mode by pressing the DVD/VCR button. Find the point at which you want to start recording the DVD. Again press Dubbing and set up the recording mode and highlight Dubbing and press Enter or Dubbing.

Note that copyprotected content can not be recorded.

The manual for this recorder is on the right side of the page here: http://www.lg.com/us/tv-audio-video/video/LG-dvd-recorder-RC897T.jsp . See page 48 for the screen captures of setting the recording mode part of the dubbing procedure.

I hope this helps.

VCR DVD Recorder not dubbing


I called the manufacturer and realized I was using the wrong type of recordable DVD disc to dub to. Non copy protected VHS tapes dub just fine as long as I'm using the proper disc.

Help w/ panasonic burner


I own one and it is a pain to work. Put in the disc and vhs tape and hit the bottom right button, I believe it says DVD and above it says dubbing. Hold it for a few seconds and the screen will come up and the system will do the rest recording from your VHS tape to the disc. You MUST finalize the disc after you are finished if you want to watch it in another DVD players if not it will only work on the Panasonic. Hope this helps.
