Locate the output jacks DVD player. Sometimes they are standard female RCA A/V jacks, like those found on the front of many VCRs. Others are more tricky, having a small jack that looks like a stereo headphones plug. These camcorders require a special cord that converts a 1/8" stereo signal into RCA A/V male plugs.
Using the proper cord, connect your PLAYER to the VCR's RCA A/V input jacks, usually found on the front or back of your VCR.
Turn on your VCR and TV, so you can see the input from the camcorder. You might have to select "Input 1/2", "Line 1/2", or "VIDEO" depending on your VCR model. You should now see whatever is on your camcorder displayed on your television.
Press "Record" on your VCR, then press "Play" on your camcorder. That's it!
Older movies will do that w/out problem. newer dvds will not because of piracy protection. A way to copy vhs to dvd is hook up a dvd camcorder or digital camcorder from the output on the player to the input on the recorder and press record that should work.
f.y.i. this suggestion is nothing more than a solid maybe. Sorry it's the best i got
Unfortunately, no, unless the DVD is not copy written material. Commercial DVD and VHS tapes have a built in copy protection called Macrovision. Basically, it prevents copying them with any Macrovision enabled recorder. All DVD and VHS players sold in North America are required to have Macrovision Enabled.
Though there are certain players that get around this (such as the Apex AD-1500, in which Macrovision can easily be disabled), unless you research and purchase one of those specifically, you're not going to be able to avoid Macrovision, and therefore won't be able to copy anything to or from a commercial DVD or VHS tape.
Hope that answered your question completely, even if it wasn't what you wanted to hear.
Your unit has it seems to have developed a video problem. it could be in the video switching IC or the video processor. Its going to need a trained technician, who knows how to use an ocilliscope to find the video problem.. Good Luck
