DVD & VCR Recorder Model ZV450MW8A

I have had this DVD & VCR Recorder for a week and have been trying to set it up to record and play back with the VCR function. I believe I have properly set it up to record and play back now but, omehow I have done something which is making me unable to change from the DVD to VCR functions. I know this function is workable, because I have use it previously when setting it up. However, I now want to reset the channels, and when I hit the Standby button on the remote, I see a red circle with a line through it on the screen and the face on the VCR will not change from DVD to VCR. I tried hitting the Source button the VCR and it will not change. I am sure this is operator error but just don't know what I did to cause this problem or how to resolve it.

Please help.

My grandmother had the same problem. Whenever you press "timer set" to set the timer, it automatically turns off the VCR and whenever you turn it back on the VCR is locked and it's stuck on DVD. All you have to do is press "timer set" to unlock the VCR side. Then you may have to press "VCR" to switch it back. Hope this helps.

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.

My VCR/DVD Recorder won't record a program that I like.


I don't have a solution unfortunately, but I also have this problem. I cannot, no matter what the manual says (which it doesn't) figure out how to select which channel I want to have recorded to dvd-r.

Someone? Anyone? Help us??

Can,t Record from VCR to DVD


Make sure you have your VCR connected to the recorder by either the ANTENNA cable or 3 A/V cords. Make sure the recorder is on whatever output channel the VCR is set on (switch on the back of the VCR) for RF, or that the VCR is set for AV output and the recorder is set for Input 1 for the back of the recorder. You should be able to see a picture on the recorder of what's playing on the VCR. If you got that far, then you should be able to record the incoming program using the menu features of the RCA 8030. I hope this helps.
I need a manual for this machine if anyone has one.

Play the video on your through your recorder if possible, then record it that way. It works for me. Just go to your watch tv setting and record it off channel three while the vcr plays the video.

3) Scroll down, select "Finalize", press "OK"

4) Select "Yes", press "OK"

Finalizing will start.

--- have done this operation several times, works Ok.
