Cannot record from copy-protected VHS to DVD-R - is it possible to suppress the macrovision on the Philips VR630 VCR?

No. You will need to use a generic VHS player unit - most of them are unprotected.

I have just bought a second hand good condition Phillips VR Video Machine. I can play tapes, eject, reverse and forward on the machine itself, but the I can't track, get menu, reverse, forward or play...

The chances are that the person who supplied it to you gave you a Phillips remote for another VCR. Many makers remotes will work parts of a different model of the same firm, but only the true remote will operate ALL functions.
If you have the user manual check to see if it list the part number of the remote. If you don't have it look around the net for Philips VR630 remote. See if it matches yours. If it doesn't you will have to replace it.

VHS tape stuck in machine. How do you remove it ?

Sometimes you can unplug the VCR for a min. or two. Then plug it back in. This will reset the processor. If the tape does not come out, pull the top off and see if the tape is out around the Head. If it is, you have to manually move the gearing to back ever;ything up. The tape its self will not retract back into the cartage, If you can get the cartage backed out, take a pencil and on the bottom of the cartage there is a hole. Push the pencil in the hole(,this releases the spindles) and turn one of the spindles and this will pull the tape back into the cartage. The tape probably won't be any good. Tapes get stuck for many reasons. Sometimes the heads are so dirty the tape sticks to the head and maybe the tape its self is wore out. Hope this is helpful.

Cassette stuck in video

I am a sanyo VCR technician and i will share to you what i had encountered. the problem of your VCR is in the mechanism "slide front" unable to push out the ejector portion of the tape. If you can locate this part just push it so that the tape will eject.

VCR eats the tape

you have a bad take-up reel clutch or a belt on the bottom of the player mechanism that is causing this trouble.
