I have an old emerson TV/VCR (Digital Tracking VHSHQ) The TV works fine, but when I put a tape in it is ejected and part of the tape stays inside, but can be pulled out.

Try a VHS Cleaning Tape Cassette. Follow it's instructions. If no better result it's not worth throwing away money on having repairs done but better put toward, if you can afford to, buying:
Option 1. A VHS/DVD player (combo as these are known) and plug that into the Emerson AV input.
Option Two: A VHS/DVD twin recorder combo deck - and plug that in.
Then start on copying any VHS tapes you cherish to DVD on this device.
Option Three: Forget the Emerson except for just using as a TV and buy a new TV with DVD player built in - the latest type of combo.
(I'm having to guess whether you've just used tapes to watch or record and watch)

I lost my remote for Philips DVDR player/recorder DVDR 3505. What remote can I get to replace it that will do all the functions as the original.

I have the same DVD recorder and I have tried many different universal remotes and none have worked. I've found on forums that others have the same issue. Below is a link to purchase the manufacturer's remote for about $20 + shipping.

How to copy VHS tape to DVD on the Panasonic DMR-ES36V?

You need a macrovision filter to put between the VHS player and the DVD recorder. They're getting difficult to find, but can still be had.

I found this one on eBay. Search around, you'll surely find others.

How do i transfer recording from vhs to dvd ram panasonic

The easiest way to transfer from VHS to DVD is by connecting the VHS player (or VCR) A/V OUT to the DVD recorder A/V IN. This uses inexpensive RCA cables, which can often be found in a local "dollar store" or for around 5 dollars in any electronics store.

The jacks are round and colored Yellow (Video), Red (Audio Right), and White (Audio Left).

After you connect the A/V OUT from your VHS player to your DVD recorder A/V IN, you will need to select the INPUT of your DVD recorder to "A/V" or "composite" in the SETUP menu. Your DVD recorder manual will provide details for your specific model on how to select the A/V input.

Once the correct input is selected, press PLAY on your VHS player, and as soon as the picture is steady, press RECORD on your DVD recorder. You will be good to go!

I recommend that you do not use DVD-RAM disks, though. They are "platform specific", meaning that if your DVD-RAM burner dies, you will need to replace it with the same model to be able to view your video. The best solution that I have found is to use blank DVD-R disks. They are much less expensive than DVD-RAM media. Make sure that after you are done recording on a disk that you "finalize" it. Until any DVD is finalized, it will be "platform specific"- by finalizing the disk, it will work on any DVD player. Check your DVD burner manual for the details on how to finalize disks.... the procedure varies from one manufacturer to another.

DVD-RAM and DVD+/- RW disks have a drawback in that before they can be used at all, they need to be formatted. Depending on the make and model of your burner, this can take up to 45 minutes. The big advantage with DVD-RAM and DVD+/-RW is that they can be erased and reused. DVD+/-R media is "record once".... you cannot erase and reuse them, but they are much less expensive.

DVD+R and DVD-R disks can be written to directly, then finalized as I described above.
My experience has been that for videos, DVD-R disks produce the best results, and have the least amount of errors. The disk brands that I have had the best luck with are TDK and Panasonic. Each manufacturer uses a different dye recipe for their disks, and some may not work at all for you. Keep away from the generic disks unless you are willing to experiment. I have had allot of problems with DVD+R so I no longer use them.

I Hope this was not TMI..... I just wanted to convey as much as I could so your recording experiences are pleasant ones..... Good Luck, and Thank You for using FixYa!

I have a Toshiba DVD Video Recorder. How do I record from a VHS to a DVD?

For a toshiba DVD player there should be a s-video input. For a vhs you must have a vhs player that has a component/s-video output. Hook up the vhs player to the dvd recorder using an s-video cable and press play on the vhs player. Then press record on the dvd recorder.

The latter part of your comments look familiar. Virgin Net did a similar thing and when the transmitters went to digital, all analogue recorders were rendered useless. All they could do is record the channel you are watching!
