Question about Televison & Video
I have a Maxell VHS tape with a lecture recorded in 1992. I tried to play the tape and it played for a minute or so, then it stopped. Now it won't rewind or go forward. I'd like to transfer the contents to a DVD. What can I do?
I work at the History Channel and have a VHS that had the same troubles. I need it desperately for the show I am working on. I tapped it on a table fast forwarded it and presto! Tape fixed, crisis averted. Thank you, Thank you, thank you.

Same problem, but mine still wouldn't fast forward, so I tried rewinding it (with little hope) and wellah! It worked! Thanks for the tip. My tape was one of my children when they were very young!

If it won't PLAY VHS tapes it must have a serious mechanical problem (if it even loads) or its heads are glommed up, so it obviously won't record them either. When's the last time you ran a cleaning tape through it?
Solve the load or playback problem and it will probably record.
Time and poor storage conditions are the mortal enemies of tapes. Store the in a 'played
