Check through, the settings of Magnavox and do the similar region
settings in your other DVD.

In short to say, recording format and the play back format does not
match. if you corect this through the MENU available, it should be OK.

May be your other DVD is old model!

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 just bought a Magnavox ZV450MW8A DVD/VCR Recorder. It has recording capabilities on both the DVD and VCR components but can you tell me if I can use it to record FROM the VCR directly onto the DVD? This...


Yes, you can, I have this unit and have actually copied a dvd to a vhs and then copied back to a dvd as I wanted a dvd copy to give a friend. The directions in the book are really quite simple. They tell you how to set the vhs to the spot where you want to start copying, etc.

I have not yet tried copying my family vhs tapes, but don't see a problem, just a big project. Good luck.

I have been copying my kids vhs videos onto cds and they don't pl


You don't necessarily need a code if the DVD player screen is not asking for one. The problem could be that the discs are not finalized - use the same DVD recorder or computer burning software that you used to record the DVD's to finalize the discs. Some programs/players use the word "closing" or "close disc" instead of the word "finalize." If you used the Magnavox to record the DVD's, go into the Settings menu of the Magnavox, select "Disc Edit," and then "Finalize." If the DVD player screen is specifically asking for a code, the user manual for the Magnavox has the universal code in it - it is usually 7-1-1 or 0-7-1-1 for Magnavox. If you have lost the user manual, it is available from either the Magnavox or Funai website, depending on your exact model.

DVD recorded discs (from VHS) do not play on other dvd players


I called the manufacturer. They admitted to improper instructions. They provided me a fix to their copying protocol and it worked. Also, they game me instructions on how to fix already copied tapes. It works well and I would have to say I was impressed with their customer/technical service.

Recording from vhs to dvd


Direct copy VCR to DVD:
- Insert VHS tape you want to copy
- Insert a recordable DVD disc
- Press DVD copy button on front panel or remote control (to DVD).
- To stop recording press the stop button.

IMPORTANT: If attempting to copy copyrighted material the Samsung DVD-VR320 will detect the encoding and will not allow the copy to be made.
