Our Sony dual recorder has been spitting out the vhs tapes after a couple of mins being played. And no shows are being recorded.


First, make sure you got a good quality tape. Bargain tapes can destroy a recorder before its time. Run a Cleaning Tape to get rid of dust on rollers.

VCR DVD Recorder not dubbing


I called the manufacturer and realized I was using the wrong type of recordable DVD disc to dub to. Non copy protected VHS tapes dub just fine as long as I'm using the proper disc.
