My Samsung dvd/vhs player will not stay on. Says hello, then bye a couple seconds later

Sounds like a bad power switch. When you push the power button, it will initiate the unit to turn on, but if the switch does not keep the power on to the unit when you let go of the power switch, then the unit goes into shut down mode. Then the unit will display good bye. I would have the power switch looked at first.

Instructions on how to burn from my insignia DVD to VHS

my Insignia is a different model (NS-drVCR) but I always use the "DUBBING" button on the remote (which is basically the tech-term for a Recording-Transfer). The screen-dialog then shows VHS Dubbing to DVD with quality options to choose. I'm not as familiar with going the other way (from DVD to VHS) but I know that mine can since I've done it once with a similar method, starting with the DUB-button.

Can't turn on my go video dvd/vcr player, keeps

Unplug it, press the power button, then plug it in and retry it. If it doesn't work, unplug it, press power, and let it sit a couple days, to try to reset everything. There may be a reset pinhole in the back, unplug it and press the reset button.

How do I record my vhs tapes to Disk

I have done a lot of dubbing on my machine. First make sure the DVD is formatted. When you put in a new disc it should ask you if you want to initialize. Once that is done, switch to VCR mode. push play on the VCR then push the DUB button on the front of the machine. I hope it helps.

Power won't stay on, can't get dvd out

One of the motors in the mechanism died making a near short circuit. When the DVD tries to energize the motor, a lot of current passes through the circuits making the PSU protection to shut down the power supply to avoid damage or fire.
To get the movie out, you'll have to disassemble the DVD player and remove the disk. After that the DVD will be unusable because of the failing motor. The replacement often is more expensive than buying a new Chinese DVD player.

Stays on hello panasonic ez 27

LG told me:
Power on.
Push the powerbutton again and hold it.
After exact 5 sek. remove the plug from the 220V-wallplug.
Stop pushing the power-switch.
Wait 15 min and see...
In my case it didn´t work, so, LG told me, the Software will be demaged.

Won 't stay on

Contact Insignia if it is still under warranty and get it checked out. I had a problem with another version of insignia and it was not able to be repaired or replaced so they gave me a complete refund.
