Power off when inserting vhs tape

I had this problem when copying an old family vhs tape. I had to unscrew the top of the magnavox to access the vhs tape. Then, I gently removed the tape and replaced the cover. After winding the tape back, I put it in the player and immediately pushed fast forward for about 3 seconds before hitting play followed by d.dubbing. I was able to make a copy of the tape and did not damage my original.

I have a philips DVDR3510V ( DVD/VHS Recorder) which is 16 months old. The problem is that the buttons on the recorder do not work ( except power button) . We thought we had got round this as the remote...

I can only speak to getting the tape out. If all else fails, you can take the player to your local best buy and have them remove the tape for a minimal fee of no more than 30$.

A vhf tape got stuck in the machine. I could see the tape itself was caught on some moving prongs. now i don't know the proper setting for the prongs and cannot get any vhs tapes to play.

Hi, if VHS tape is in you have only one disassemble DVD/VCR ..Can you do it ? you may try !!t
Here's how to do it..
* 1 Turn off the COMBO. and unplug it.
* 2 Remove the 4x screws off COMBO on the sides and take off the DVD/VCR casing.
* 3 Look for the Tape which messed up with VCR transport mechanism ,try to release tape of the transport with your hand..
* 4 Since EJECT feature works with power only ,while you keep the tape off from transport plug the device to power and turn it on..Don't worry,you will see the eject mechanism starts moving back on forth,keep the tape off it and let it eject..
* 5.When tape is out .If it destroyed badly normally you should not use it however if the recording in is valuable for you you can cut the chewed portion and
splice it back together .(Pls see the video included...How to fix a broken VHS tape.)
* 6 While it is open,place another Tape to see if mechanism works properly. and eject it...
* 7 Replace the casing and the screws. Plug the player in and turn it on. Now player is finally working ..
Hope this helps!..
Take care and please

How to remove jammed tape from philips dvdr3320v combi

Remove the top lid from your machine, next see if you can carefully remove the tape "without pulling" if it won't come out, cut the tape with scissors and make sure all tape particles are removed, sometimes by removing the defective tape the vcr will function. Now if it won't work after that point you probably have a mechanical issue which will require a repair shop.

Transfer VHS recording to DVD . I have recordings on VHS tapes and would like to transfer them to DVD discs.

Try hooking up an external DVD player to the unit. Remember, the jacks are color coded and never connect an OUT to an IN or vice versa. Your unit might have a special channel in which you can watch DVDs with the VCR part left on, try recording from this too. Good luck to you!

As long as the tapes do not have a copy gaurd on them they should record to the dvd. Home moves, tv shows that were recorded or unprotected tapes can also be dubbed.

Play the video on your through your recorder if possible, then record it that way. It works for me. Just go to your watch tv setting and record it off channel three while the vcr plays the video.

I've purchased a philips dvd videoplayer, dvp3350v/05, with the aim of being able to copy from video to dvd...having read the manual though, it reads like the only copying it will do is from dvd to...

The DVP3350V/05 is a DVD player / Video recorder combi, so will only play DVDs, not record on to them.

You will need a Philips DVDR3510V or DVDR3512V, to record from VHS to DVD. should have them in stock, if not contact them for availability.

Also, most pre-recorded VHS tapes are copy protected, so you may experience picture rolling and colour fading in & out on any copies you make.
Any VHS tapes you have recorded yourself will not have this copy protection, and will copy ok.
