On most VCR/DVD Recorder combos there is a quick dub button that you must select the source. Ifyou are recording from a VHS than you need to make sure the button is pressed so that VCR is displayed or lighted or whatever the unit does. If its on ??? Then perhaps its telling you that it is set to record of the DVD which it obviously can't.

Cannot record from tv to DVD Can play pre recordecdvd's

You cannot record from the TV as the TV doesn't give an output to the DVD Recorder.

You can only record onto DVDs from an external source such as Freeview, Cable or Satellite Box.

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.

I recorded a dvd and it will not play in any other player.

You must finalize the DVD after recording it. If you post the model of the JVC device, I may be able to find out how to do this for you.

DMR-EZ48VK - My father is having issues recording DVDs b/c of the copyright protection issue. Is there a "fix" for this? Firmware updates? Workarounds? He's getting messages that he cannot...

By changing the type of recording from extended play to the shorter ones the quality increases just like on a VHS.

Im not sure why he can't record certain channels because Tivo can and you can transfer those to a computer, he might have to call his cable company there.

Vcr - dvd player problems

I just got done recording a vhs to dvd and it worked great. Also you can print the manual at or something like that.. google it, i printed mine. I had to watch the enitre vhs to record it. As you are playing the vhs (right at the beginning) push the blue D. Dubbing button then when its done playing push stop on the DVD side it will say writing to disk on the bottom once thats done ooha la!! I am trying to figure out if there is a way to dub a vhs to dvd without having to watch the howl movie but unfortunatley I don't think there is!
