I came to the unit and it said please wait ont the front, I then got it to work but it would not record, when I unplugged it and tried to restart it would not get any power and I can not get it to come...

There is a problem with the switchmode power supply, in particular IC1 (its type number varies between DVD recorder models but begins with STR). This may have gone partially or totally short-circuit. A good idea to check ALL the electrolytic capacitors in the PSU, as some may be swollen/leaking. Visually inspect each one and replace any that look bad. Also check the board for burn marks corrosion/dry solder joints etc.

If you are not tech. savvy, submit the unit to an authorised Panasonic service centre for a quote on the likely cost(s) involved, and get a second opinion as to whether it is economical to repair or not (they may also be able to tell you more; for example if a new power board is required or not) - you can make a firm decision afterwards as to what to do - up to you.

Why does a disk that i have been recording on, that still has room for more recording space, suddengly become a non recordable disc, and i can no longer retrieve any recordings on it,or rerecorde on it?

It depends on what you are trying to play it in. DVD? Xbox360? PS3? If it is an xbox360 i know it only reads discs that have a certain logo ont he disc other than that it could of be internally scrached that you cant see with the naked eye

I do not know how to record a dvd from a VCR on my rca vc125hf

Heres a link to an online manual
If you look at page 38 (PDF page number 40) Instruction on how to copying from DVD to VHS NOTE:Caution: The unauthorized recording of copyrighted materials may infringe the rights of others.
The unit does NOT have a DVD Writer, so you cannot record onto the DVD

change the recording level. On the meny screen go to the options and set the recording level to a lower level. You get more space per disk but at a lower quality. I know this is almost 1 year late, but knowing RCA, you probably have more issues with this unit by now
