Overwrote my VHS?? Help!

Hello. I am using a vhs dvd combo player model DVW 7200. I was using a blank DVD +RW. In the process of trying to record my vhs to the blank dvd i fear that i might’ve done the opposite. Is that even possible?i played the vhs for a second to ensure there was content. And then i rewound it and pressed record while the blank dvd was in there at the same time. Now, when i try to play the vhs alone it is not playing at all. The VHSs i previously watched are still playing. Is it possible i overwrote my vhs with the blank dvd???

This may have been problem.

So when i put the VHS in the player it had clear tape over this hole. I then removed the tape but i think i presses record prior to removing the tape. Could clicking record only for a moment have overwritten the entire 2 hours of the VHS?

Only if you let it go for two hours.

Fast forward a bit and hope.
