SOURCE: VHS to DVD dubbing

You need to try to copy just some homevideo videotapes not movies. All them are copyprotected. Recording stops then copyguard is detected. It should be noted in the manual for this unit at page 47.

SOURCE: VHS to DVD dubbing

Press the 'DVD' button then 'Input' button at the top of the remote until 'Line1' or 'Line2' input is selected. I messed with this for quite a while until I finally looked at Sony's web site which states this.

I have just purchased a Magnaox ZV247MG9 and to convert VHS to DVD and my first DVD is blank. All the connections are made and I followed the manual, but am confused as to what happened.


I hope you have resolved this by now but in case you haven't: The only thing I can think of is that the disc was not compatible. Make sure to use one of the discs listed in the manual.

Recorded a movie on the DVR, played it & recorded it onto a Sony DVD-R with the Sony RDR-VX525, I believe it finalized & did everything it should. However, it won't play. It says disk error. I went...


what happened was that you probably chose a disc speed on the DVD that was too fast or slow for the dvd players that you are putting it in to. Try re recording it but when under the DVD section, on your remote, choose REC Mode till it says SP. That one should work on just about any dvd player. I had the same problem with mine. Here is a step by step instruction on how to dub from VHS to DVD correctly. If you follow all the steps, you should be fine :) http://angrytechblog.com/2011/02/how-to-one-touch-dub-vhs-to-dvd-on-the-sony-rdr-vx525/

Just bought a used Sony TCWR610, to reproduce some valued cassettes. Cannot get the B deck to record. There is a little red light that comes on that says REC, but deck does not turn as I start the tape...


I have the same tape deck. To do a copy on this machine you first press the normal speed button below synchro dubbing, then hit the pause button on the recording side to start the copy. It will automatically start both decks.

And to stop the recording hit either of the stop buttons.

I would like to make a copy from my video tape to a DVD How do I do it?


Turn on the TV and set it to the video source to be able to easily see the menus as you set up the dubbing process. Put the source tape you want to record in the VCR. (Copy protected tapes will not be dubbed.) If you want to avoid dubbing from the DVD to the VHS tape, remove the erase protection tab from the cassette. Put a compatible recordable disc (non-finalized disc, unprotected disc) in the recorder and make sure there is sufficient available capacity on the disc.

Press Rec Mode/Speed to set the speed (SP, LP, SLP, or XP). Press DVD/VCR and set the unit to VCR mode. Confirm the mode with the indicator light on the unit. Press Dubbing and the mode should switch to DVD automatically. Select Yes (with the left/right arrows) and press Enter to start the duplication. The unit should indicate the VCR playback, dub and DVD recording are in progress. Press Stop to halt the dubbing process or it will stop when the unit reached the end of the tape or the disc is full.

The dubbing button is only on the remote control; if your original remote isn't working make sure that your replacement remote has the feature. Remotes.com often has exact or substitute remotes with the matching features. Search just by the model number not the brand.

BTW: the manual is available here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/26967/SANSUI-DVD-VCR-Combo-L0311311?brand_name_search=sansui+VRDVD4005 .

I hope this helps.

How do I transfer a video from vcr to dvd on magnavok dvd/vcr recorder ?


Use the Dub video feature. This will work if the source is not copy protected. Make sure you have a writable (or rewritable) DVD with sufficient space available in the DVD tray (closed) and put your tape to dub in the VCR.

Press Setup on the remote and navigate down (up/down arrows) to Recording and press OK. Then select Dubbing Mode in the next menu level and press OK. When the Option menu opens, highlight VCR to DVD and press OK. Press Setup to exit this menu. Choose a recording mode using REC MODE on the remote. Press Play and then Pause when you reach the point where you want to start the recording (press quickly if you want to dub the whole tape; you will lose a few seconds while the dubbing starts so include 5 seconds extra if starting later in the tape). Then press Dubbing on the remote. The duplication will start. Press Stop when you reach the end of the section to record.

I hope this helps.

(only the Setup and Rec Mode buttons do not have a matching button on the front of the unit. The later steps (setting up the start point, starting the Dub and stopping it) can be done with the remote or the buttons on the unit.)

VHS to DVD Dubbing Problem


I have the same problem. I saw a solution that said I needed to set my cable to a non-premium channel like NBC, ABC, PBS, CSPAN in order to allow the dubbing to occur without the +VR problem. At first, I thought it was a stupid solution; but guess what, It worked. I just set my cable box to from HBO to CSPAN,restarted the dubbing from VCR to DVD and it worked. Now the question is: Why do I have to change the channel when I'm dubbing from VCR to DVD?
This worked for me..still trying to figure out why it worked???

I Have a Teac W525R double auto reverse cassette deck and I cant dub from ;Play (left sd) to Rec. (right sd). What gives? I push rec then play on the other side and the rec stops. Then I tried the other...


Don't do either of those things. Just hit one of the DUB START buttons (NORMAL OR HIGH) Located right under the tape counter. The deck does the rest.
