Question about Mitsubishi HS-1280U VHS VCR

1 Answer

Mitsubishi HS-U500 I am trying to set the calendar to record TV programs and the year 2008 comes up but when the day/date selection comes up, it does not match the correct day/date with the current year. Example: todays date is Wednesday, September 24, 2008 and in trying to program this the closest I can get is Sunday, September 24, 2008. Unfortunately the day & date as displayed together instead of separately so there is no way to reprogram the correct date. I believe this VCR is a 1994 model since that is the first year displayed @ set up screen. I did not have any problems recording until the year 2008 started. Please help!!!!

I have a Quasar VH6200 VCR. Can it be connected to a new TV and be able to record TV programs. I have connected it but it won't record. What can I do?


I have the same machine and the same problem as you do. Apparently, because this model has a hardwired, built in calendar, it experiences a "Y2K"-like problem and will not record (even manually!) when you either try to program a date that is more recent than 2008, or the machine's present date "hits the wall." The solution is to program a year that is identical to the current year. Example: day and date-wise, 2014 is identical to 1997. So entering the correct month and day, but using 1997 for the year entry will allow normal operation with correct day/date timer operation and the stupid CPU will be none the wiser. As for using this machine with modern HDTVs, there should be no problem as long as the TV has standard analog A/V jacks. For recording the machine would need a source of standard-def video, either basic cable TV or a digital converter box if using over the air signals. BTW, 1998 is a match for 2015, so the above solution will be good for two years. After that, just look up a leap within 1990 to 2008 year that matches 2016.

Can the date chip be updated in a mitsubishi VCR?


You can work around the problem. Check old calendars for a year where the days and dates correspond to the 2010 calendar. Program that year in your VCR and it will allow you to program recording times. The year 2004 will work.

VCR Calendar Out of Date


Program the VCR as if it were 1998. The day date sequence is the same as 2009 (and not a leap year).

This should solve the problem

Magnavox VCR U095 39760450-can not put in 2009 YR to record


I called Magavox and Matt told me they had no information for my very very old vcr. He suggested that I trick the machine and use a date similar to the current calendar. For instance, today is Monday, January 5th. I went back to 2004 and found the same day and date. I programmed my vcr for 30 minutes to test it out and it worked. If you can't beat it, join it. Hope your vcr works too. Happy new year!

You will have to choose a year that corresponds to the days of the week. In other words, the processor has not been designed to accomodate that far into the futured\...accordianman

Setting date and time on a Mitsubishi VCR


My Solution for Mitsubishi HS-U500 VCR setting the date for 2008 and beyond:
I had same problem with this old unit as everyone else has.  Since the year really doesn't matter (except maybe when you're setting to tape near a new year), here's how to get the day and dates correct:
On the remote, push Menu button, then select "First time setup", then select "Set the Clock", then select the month.  Now, start adjusting the YEAR and watch how the "days" change with the years.  Adjust the years so that the "Day" (Monday, Tuesday, etc.) matches the date (1,2, 22, 23, 28, etc.) in the month.  Then cycle thru the rest of the items and get out by hitting menu button again.  
That's it!  That's my quicky solution.  Caveat: This may not be permanent with leap years and the like, so you may need to check it from time to time to make sure the days match up with the dates.  But you can do this when you go to set up for timed taping.  Hope that "FIXes" it for "Ya"!
