There are probably a few different ailments which can cause this. One is if something is afoul in tape transport. I'd think the problem would occur whether in record or playback however.
If the tape takeup reel drive is slipping, tape takeup might intermittently stop, and cause the machine to power off (this is to avoid spilling tape in the machine). With the cover off, insert a tape, hit play, and see if tape takeup is steady, especially nearer the end of the tape, when the right reel is filling up.
An associated problem is if the reel sensor is intermittent- this sensor tells the logic whether or not the takeup reel is turning- again, this is to avoid massive tape spillage and damage.
Another possibility is a dirty mode switch- this switch tells the logic circuitry what position the mechanicals are in. It is probably located on the underneath side of the deck. Sometimes it can be disassembled and cleaned with a cotton swab wetted with contact cleaner. Others must be replaced.
Hopefully this helps- perhaps another tech has a better solution too.

SOURCE: We recently connected to Direct
You can try this: Connect your DirecTv to VCR with Red/White/Yellow cables. Then the VCR to your TV with the same type of cables. Make sure the VCR is set to the video input, not the tuner. Turn your TV to the correct video input. Get the program ready on the DVR as if you were going to watch it. Press record on the VCR and then play on the DVR. At the end of the program, press stop on both. You may have a problem with the video recording properly. Some stations broadcast with copyright protection.
