This can be something mechanicaly binding in the mechanism. It is also possible that the power supply is starting to fail, and when under load it goes into protect. It is also possible that there are some circuits in the VCR that are pulling too much current due to some failures.

The VCR should be checked by an experienced service tech who knows VCR's.

I have a Zenith DVD/VCR and I am recording a tape


unless the security camera has a setting for recording the date stamp you probably can't. The camera probably has a setup tab to enable embedding the date stamp on the video.

Recording from VCR to HDD


The VCR tape contains a copy inhibitor along it's length, so cannot be copied. the only way to make a copy is to use a truly analog route, without any copyright checking getting in the way. I think this is mentioned in the manual.

Tape Speed


Most late VCRs of the last 10+ years had just basic operating functions with the VCR mounted buttons. Setup of timed recording, and other advanced functions require a remote box, either the manufacturer original, or a universal unit which specifically is able to do advanced. Not all universal units have that capability, so if you go to your local electronics store, check this out carefully. Manufacturer remotes are available: Look here- http://www.electronicadventure.us/Merchant2/merchant.mv?screen=prod&store_code=EA&product_code=6711R1N051A Zenith may offer their own universal remotes- again, check them out for the capabilities required.
