What is the proper connection of cables and also there are times that the VCR will not start to record on time or the tape will lock up at start

Connect it to your TV set or cable box, just like you would a regular VCR. Then put a blank disc or tape in to record from either the DVD drive or the VCR drive. There should be an easy dubbing button to record from VCR to DVD. (I don't have this particular machine; I have two other brands of combo recorders, and I use them both like I would a regular VCR. This one shouldn't be any different.)

Panasonic DMR-ES30V DVD / VCR Combo Recorder - where can I buy another? If I have to buy latest model, will it finalise DVD's made on the above model?


You may be able to find an identical model for this combo unit on eBay or similar, otherwise if you do end up purchasing a new unit (for example a DMR-EZ48V which is a Panasonic) - you cannot finalise discs recorded on one model in a different one, and I doubt you would be able to even on an identical model, since there would be variations in their digital control circuitry.

This is why recorded DVDs must be finalised in the drive they were written in to enable compatible playback in standard players. You cannot change recording models or drives prior to finalising.

I have a DVD/VCR recording device and I need to hook up my camcorder to record videos to a DVD to submit to an organization for my son to receive a service dog. I can hook up camcorder straight to TV...


To record to the DVD, connect the A/V cables from the JVC GR-D347U to the A/V In on the DVD recorder. Since the DVD already plays to the TV, you just have to keep the TV set to that input. Put a blank DVD in the recorder. Set the DVD recorder to record on from the appropriate Line In (input) with the DVD as the target recording media. To make sure that all of the devices are on and receiving the output from the camera and DVD recorder, start playback on the GR-D347U and check that it displays on the TV. Forward the tape in the camera to the point where you want to record to the DVD. Stop playback. Press REC for the DVD recorder and restart your playback. Press stop for both the DVD recorder and then the camera when the desired video segment has been played back.

See page 21 of the manual for the GR-D347U. Treat the DVD recorder as a VCR for this situation. The manual is available here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/82266/Jvc-Gr-D347u.html?page=21#manual .

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the details of the DVD recorder for more information on connecting the unit in this daisy chain.

(Many recorders have at least two composite video Line In inputs. That's why you need select the correct one for recording.)

Im having problems hooking up thru vcr/dvd player


Hi,

The correct setup depends on whether you have a cable/satellite receiver and whether you want to record to and playback from the VCR. If you are using a cable/satellite receiver, this needs to be connected to both the TV and the DVD/VCR if you want to record. The DVD then needs to be connected to the TV via the video and audio out sockets on the back of the DVD/VCR for playback.

I can let you know exactly which connections to use and where they should all go, but I need to know the following details as otherwise I don't know which sockets/connect you have available.

1. Brand and model number of TV
2. Brand and model number of DVD/VCR
3. Brand and model number of any cable/satellite receiver if you are using one.

Please confirm these details and I will try to assist you further.

Regards,
BElectric

I have a Sylvania 6240VE vcr. When I try to rewind a recorded tape, the vcr ejects the video. I was wanting to purchase a dvd/vcr combo, but the reviews for these items are awful. I tried a Magnavox combo....


When you put the player into rewind, is it at the beginning of the tape that it ejects? If so, it may be because you have the machine in timer mode. If you have a pre-recorded tape in a VCR, it will automatically eject the tape because you`ve not to record on a pre-recorded tape. I hope this help, Ian

Only dvd plays properly but vhs will not show picture.


Most likely you have the dvd part connected through component or svideo cables. Despite the fact that this is one unit, like other vcr/dvd combo units it acts as two separate units in the same box. The vcr will probably not play through those cables. As you have audio coming through I'd imagine that the audio is connected using red and white composite cable. Connect the video on the vcr side with composite yellow cable or run direct to tv with a coaxial cable.

Sylvania zv420SL8 error code E4


The error is actually a catch all for three problems or a better way of putting it three problems can generate this error Sylvania requires that you call them with the error code to get an answer on which of the three errors it could be, However I can tell you from working on these units that the issue has to do with recording laser power.

HELP! I can't figure out how to Connect my Sylvania DVD/VCR Combo to my older TV


Even if you do get it connected you cannot copy from vhs to dvd as you have bought a vcr recorder with dvd player, not a dvd recorder. You can only record to the vcr tape from a dvd, in the players controls.
