How do I get the DVD to record what is on the VHS tape not the TV?


You can record from an external component, such as a camcorder or VCR, connected to any of the Recorder's external inputs.
1. Make sure that the component you want to record from is connected properly to the Recorder. See page 14.

2. Press AUX repeatedly to select the external input to record from.
• AV1: Audio/Video Input mounted on back panel.
• AV2: Audio/Video Input mounted on front panel.
• DV: DV Input mounted on front panel.

page 37 from manual:

If this fails, try to disconnect the tv input cable and connect the vcr cable.

How do I get vhs video onto my computer?


You need a TV capture card... the package includes connectors for VHS & other DV cameras, you also need of course a VHS player..

While the VHS player is playing your VHS tape... the computer can now record it via the TV capture card.

That's what I do... goodluck and don't forget to rate...

I have a Magnavox ZV427MG9. I follow all directions in manual for dubbing VHS home movies to DVD but when I try to play the DVD back there's nothing on them.What am I doing wrong?


Depending on the procedure you may be pressing the record button instead of the D.Dubbing or Dubbing button. When recording from VHS to DVD you must first, load the blank DVD and VHS home movies, then play the VHS movies, then PAUSE the VHS movie when you want to START recording... then the only the you have to do is pressing the D.Dubbing button or the Dubbing button. If your VHS tapes starts to play after the Dubbing button is pressed you have been successful in Dubbing.

Burn dvd from vhs


i'm assuming you have a vcr to play your vhs tapes, just plug your audio/video cord from your vcr(out), plug into the audio/video vc10(in), start playing vcr and press rec botton whenever you want to start to record. make sure you can only use dvd+r. choose the quality for the length of time, at the end press 'function' to finalize the disc, then you are done.

Recording purchased vhs tape to dvd recorder.


How old is the VHS tape? I've had success recording older movies, but the newer ones have encryption to prevent duplication of them. I've even tried playing them on another VCR and transmitting the signal with a wireless audio/video transmitter but unfortunately the encryption is still there. If you can copy the tape to another tape, then it may not have encryption. If that's the case, check you A/V inputs to see if you have them setup right.

Adapter question


There are no such adapters that would allow 8mm, Hi8 and Mini DV tapes to be played in a VHS VCR. Only the old VHS-C tapes can fit and play in an adapter. There are several reasons why 8mm (or Hi8 and miniDV tapes) cannot be physically played in a VHS VCR: 1. 8mm (Hi8, miniDV) is a different format with different technical characteristics than VHS. These formats were never developed with the intention to be mechanically compatible with current VHS technology. 2. 8mm/Hi8 tapes are 8mm wide (miniDV is 6mm wide), while VHS tape is 1/2" wide, making it impossible for a VHS video head to read the taped information correctly. 3. 8mm/Hi8/miniDV tapes are recorded and played at different speeds than VHS, so even if the tapes could physically fit into a standard VHS VCR, the VCR still couldn't play back the tapes at their correct speeds. 4. 8mm/Hi8/minDV audio is recorded differently than VHS. 8mm/Hi8 audio is recorded in AFM HiFi mode, while miniDV audio is recording in 12-Bit or 16-Bit PCM digital audio format. So, even if the video could be played back in a VHS VCR, the audio could not be read properly. 5. 8mm/Hi8 video is of higher resolution than VHS and is recorded in a different bandwidth length (miniDV video is recorded digitally), so once again, a standard VCR still could not read the information correctly, even if the tape could fit into a VCR.

Samsung tv clicks and turns off and off in a cycle, you can see smart tv logo for a very small time before tv turns off again. Hey, so I have an issue with a Samsung tv un55ru7100fxza. It has this clicking sound and it’s in a cycle of turning off and on, you can see the startup logo for just a second before it turns off and on again. Almost every video I’ve seen so far talks about checking for bulging/ leaking capacitors but all the capacitors look fine and the solder joints on the back aren’t cracked or darkened. Next step is to take out each individual capacitor and test them which I really don’t want to do at all but I need to find the issue. I tried plugging in different boards to see if a particular board was causing it and I noticed that when I unplug the t con board the clicking stops and the tv stays on and I can manually turn it off, then I try and keep the t con board in and just unplug the 2 connectors that goes into the panel and the clicking continues, I feel like I need to replace the t con board but when I look up the symptoms of a t con board failing the tv just has fading or color distortions which I don’t have. So I’m kinda confused on why it would only click when that board is plugged in, if it was capacitor or power board issue wouldn’t the power board be clicking even if everything was unplugged? Awhile ago it’s done this but only for about 3 min then it worked fine and even for a week or two, but now it’s always doing it. I don’t know what to do since everyone I contacted wants hundreds of dollars to fix it. Is there anything else I can try?
