    Same problem. It plays back on the DVD/VCR combo only. I don't have the manual, but guessed from the DivX logo on the box that it would read on a PC with DivX, so I tried it on one, but still got nothing. What file type is it even supposed to be?

I have since learned about finalizing it and it works just fine. Maybe Insignia isn't total junk.

Recorder will not dub


What are you trying to dub, a movie on original dvd or something you recorded from tv. Some cable systems send an anti-copy signal with pay movie channels and can be almost impossible to copy. There are ways but no easy unless you are experienced. Same with purchased movies on DVD. See DVDfab program for ways to do that.

Dvd says cannot record copy protected movie how to fix ?


Depends what you are trying to record? Some TV stations have protection built in so you cannot record. If you are trying to copy a video from VHS to DVD and it's a commercial movie etc then it won't.
You can get a "box" that will get rid of copy protection signals, but only from outside the unit sources. Internal dub to dub protected sources cannot be copied.

Screen goes black as soon as i push record on dvd when trying to record vhs to dvd on magnavox combo player


Dubbing does the media transfer automatically, not by playback and record. you select vcr to dvd then do dubbing. Please read the manual. and try all the controls.

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.

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.
