Is the VHS tape a store bought movie or show?

MacroVision and other copy protection systems are put into store bought tapes and discs of movies and shows, and are read by your recording equipment. Once it reads this, it stops recording.

Does the screen turn red before it stops? This is one of the indications that MacroVision is stopping you.

How do you record dvd to vhs and from vhs to dvd


For VHS to DVD, put the tape to dub in the VHS slot and a blank DVD in the DVD tray. Make sure the DVD is compatible with the DVD recorder (see the recommended disc list) and is unfinalized if you are using a R/W disc. Close the tray. Set the unit to VCR mode with the DVD/VCR button. Advance the tape to the place that you want the recording to start. Then press the Dubbing button (either on the remote or the unit itself). Select the recording mode (SP, LP etc), highlight Dubbing then press Enter or Dubbing. Press Stop to interrupt the recording.

For DVD to VHS, put a blank tape in the VCR (make sure the protection tab has not been broken off) and the DVD to duplicate in the DVD tray and close the tray. Put the unit in DVD mode by pressing the DVD/VCR button. Find the point at which you want to start recording the DVD. Again press Dubbing and set up the recording mode and highlight Dubbing and press Enter or Dubbing.

Note that copyprotected content can not be recorded.

The manual for this recorder is on the right side of the page here: http://www.lg.com/us/tv-audio-video/video/LG-dvd-recorder-RC897T.jsp . See page 48 for the screen captures of setting the recording mode part of the dubbing procedure.

I hope this helps.

MY RCA DRC 8320n DVD Recorder/VCR Combo will not accept tapes. DVD works fine. RCA help line is a joke. I will never buy another RCA product.


Yah, you're going to be taking that in for repair. I worked for couple of years at RCA / Sony / Panasonic / ... and 60 more names - service center. When a VHS Cassette loading mechanism doesn't work - it probably needs loading motor or loading gear, something repaired. At the cost of DVD and VHS combos these days I'd call it Not Worth Repair (NWR) out of the starting gate. At least $50 an hour, at least 2 hours ... that's beyond the cost of a new one.

I need help converting vhs tapes to dvd+r


If you have both a VCR and DVD recorder there is no problem. Just connect the A/V output from the VCR to the A/V input of the DVD recorder. Start the tape and press record on the DVD recorder. (these connection are RCA type ans coloured white, red, abd yellow. Just connecxt them colour to colour. Couldn't be simpler. When the recording finishes, transfer to an optical disk. After finalizing, the VOB files from the optical disk can be converted to mpeg4 or any other format you desire using your PC.

How do I record my vhs tapes to Disk


I have done a lot of dubbing on my machine. First make sure the DVD is formatted. When you put in a new disc it should ask you if you want to initialize. Once that is done, switch to VCR mode. push play on the VCR then push the DUB button on the front of the machine. I hope it helps.

Connect DVD recorder to Video player/recorder- transfer VHStodisc


hook the video output from vcr to dvd input at rear, then hook output from dvd to tv input. note; you can not record protected vcr movies you can only record tv shows from sattelite to vcr or dvd recorder. its best to record straight from sattelite to dvd recorder for picture clarity.

RCA DRC-8295N


It sounds like you got the old electrical surge blowout going on there bud. It could be as simple as a bad regulator transistor or IC. the onlt real way to tell is to troubleshoot this unit by getting a service manual and a meter and checking your standby and switched power supply. Now since this is a recorder maybe it is wort a look at by your local repair depot or is there any warrantee left on it at as my book says it has a 1 year warrantee but just dont volenter any info how it went out if ya get my drift. Good Luck
