Cannot play a VHS tape. Push in and pops out.


The belt on the loader motor is slipping. This causes the tape to not completely position itself to allow the tape to load around the drum. The machine senses this and ejects the tape.

How to record a vhs tape to dvd on a samsung 1080


Hello

1.The VHS/DVD player must have recording capabilities.

2 Connect both players to a television so that you can make sure you are recording the appropriate content. You can also monitor the speed at which the VHS is copying to DVD.

3. Place the VHS in the VHS player and the blank DVD in the DVD recorder. You will need to use your remote and go through the menu options to choose the correct format for recording. The formats should be clearly labeled and outlined in your instruction manual. Choose the option that will read something like "VHS to DVD." You may also have to choose recording speed, which varies per blank DVD that you purchase. Every player is different, and every menu will vary slightly. If you have questions, refer to you individual manual.

4. Select the option that works best for you and hit "Play" on the VHS player and "Record" on the DVD recorder. To play the finished DVD, you will select the playback option.
THANK YOU

VHS to DVD: audio and visual dont match on playback


Hi, this is a problem with cramming too much info onto dvd.
For a good quality dvd, it needs to have about 1.5 to 2 hours of video on it. The more you put it the lower the quality it becomes. Don't forget though , it will never be better than the original.unless you have some specialist software to tidy up sound and flickers in the video.
So I would stick with one tape to one dvd if you want to keep the quality.
DVD's are cheap anyway, you can buy a spindle of 50 Verbatims for £10.

I hope this has helped you understand a little better, but if you need more assistance, then please ask.

Regards - Anthony

Tried dubbing VHS to DVDs, worked okay. But I cannot get the DVDs to play on my laptop. I used DVD-RWs. What kind of DVD do I have to use?


It depends on the specifications of the DVD drive in the laptop. Go to the website for you laptop manufacturer and look up the specifications. You also have to have DVD playing software. It is was not always included with the Windows operating system, although some kind of player may have been packaged with your computer when sold. DVD-RWs are recorded at slower speeds, which makes bigger dots and make not work with all DVD playback drives.

Copying VHS to DVD


some of these things are very fussy as to what blank dvd media you have put in them. try a few other brands. On my philips you can designate what signals are going to and from each connection so go through your manual again checking all your input/output connections are correct and you have selected the right function

VHS plays in colour and DVD plays in black and white.


there is a circuit in the color section to put the tv to black and white if the color subcarrier is missing from the broadcast signal.
it is called a color killer and needs to be adjusted.
it is for a technician to do.
it operates off the 3.58mhz color subcarrier.

Are you trying to copy a comercial VHS tape to DVD?
If you are then macrovision copy protection system on either the tape or in the machine is the reason for the loss of colour.
There's not a lot you can do about it. If you want to copy commercial material you will need to transfer it to a computer and get a program to do it. But unless it's unavailable it is cheaper to buy the DVD version I have found and you will get better picture and sound too!
If it does it with a none comercial tape (ie something recorded of the TV). Then it could be a head fault or something else. In which case try cleaning all the heads guides etc first.

VHS tapes are black and white


The tapes are B/W or one of the playback video heads is not making contact with the tape. The video head may need to be adjusted. You can take it in to get it fixed or buy a new one. The unit today is worth around $25-$30.
