Before trying to dupe a tape, always run it thru a FF/WW cycle the whole length.

Be prepared to run a wet head cleaner thru the machine fairly often. This may be why the first tape was mostly good and the others not.
I ordered a head cleaner from Amazon. Now when I play the first tape that seemed okay, it is mostly bad.

I have no VHS-C cameras in the family. Nobody knows what happened to the original.
