Re: DVD-VCR Reorder, Model DVD-V5650

On the more modern vcrs this problem can be caused by several things, Faulty mode switch, Deck alignment incorrect, reel idler faulty.
I would advise if the machine is only 3mths old it will be still be under warantee so take it back to shop.

How can I show my DVD-R(Memorex) on my televison?

I assume you mean that your current DVD player won't play this DVD?
There are 3 reasons that it won't play. One that the disc is faulty and therefore won't play on any machine. Two that the disc has a scratch or has marks on it. You can look at ways to clean the disc on-line!
3 That it was not finalised on the machine that it was recorded on. If you current player is a + machine it won't play the disc if it is unfinalised. You will need to use the old machine to finalise the disc or another "-" disc recorder to do it - if it will accept the disc! Otherwise if the old DVD recorder is no longer with you, then your only hope to save the disc is to find another model of your old recorder to do it on. If it was a common model someone might let you finalise the disc!

We recently connected to Direct TV...I want to transfer some old western TV Shows I recorded on my Direct TV DVR Recorder to VCR Tape. I was told by the people at Direct TV that I would need to contact you...

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.

I have an RCA VCR model VR651HF that still works great. I can record shows without a problem as long as I'm not trying to watch a dvd. I recently bought a Sony dvd player model DVP SR200. I have my cable...

The sequence should go from the wall to the VCR then the VCR to the RF modulator then from the RF modulator to the TV and this should allow you to record a TV program and watch a DVD at the same time.

Have digital TV have 3 yr old sony VHS VCR DVD player combo

A DTV converter box will take digital broadcast signals from the antenna and convert them to a format compatible with the VCR. You will be able to record programs received through the DTV box on your VCR if you could record analog over-the-air programs before the digital changeover. You can use either the RF output or the component output from the DTV box to input to the VCR.

My VCR plays cassets perfectly, but recently I am facing recording problem. I am unable to record, I am seeing recording caption on my screen. But it is not recording.

Well I think that the the machines mechanical piece that allows you to record is broken then and needs to be fixed so we perfer DVD players and dvd disc;s instead they are better at recording and have less problems too.

External Tuner Device for VCR/DVD player

Just pick up an old used VCR that has a tuner built in. Only the very new ones don't have them (due to the DTV switch coming up in February).

Getting a dvd player to record vhs to dvd

The RF converter takes the Red/White/Yellow as INPUTS and converts them to either channel 3 or 4. You need to go the other way. You need a tuner or another VCR to convert from RF (channel 3 or 4) to a standard AV signal (Red/White/Yel).
