theres probably something out of whack in the vcr probably one of the pins inside your best best if you want to keep it is to take it to a repair shop or if your handy open it up and see if anything is either stuck in there or bent.

The tape drive and head cylinder motors are having trouble synchronizing close enough to allow the manual tracking to work. Does it work on prerecorded tapes?
Could be:
Too much drag from the tensioning gizmo. (fixable)
Dirty tape path (fixable)
Damaged tape (does it have a crease along one edge?
dragging motor (not usually fixable)
Hope Ya Fix It!

I believe that I have the solution to that problem... When you are hooked up to cable or dish and use a VCR, you MUST have the program you wish to tape playing on the Cable or dish program, therefore the VCR needs to be tuned to channel 3 or 4 {whichever is the unused channel in your area) I believe that all you have to do is make sure that the TV is tuned to the channel you wish to tape and program the VCR to Channel 3 (at my area) or channel 4.

I hope this works for you. I have VCRs hooked up to all my sets and this is how mine work.

I'm assuming you mean the recorder doesn't have freeview built in?
Then all you have to do is to get a cheap freeview box and just have it connected to your vcr via a scart lead. If the VCR has two scarts connect the one to the tv for playback and use the other for the box. If it has only one scart, then get a switcher box, there's some good ones on Amazon, that will allow you to select the different sockets and record from.

My digilogic dvdvcr2 will play dvd and tape but..how do I record stuff?


The "Speedometer Impulse Sender" was bad when it happened on my car. I bought a replacement on eBay for about 1/10 th of the Honda price and it has worked for about a year now. The sensor is on the transmission and a bit awkward to get at like a lot of repairs on this car. Mine is a manual, and I had to move the air intake and shifter cables out of the way to get at the sensor.

Problem recording of hd tv with cable box from


Here are a few items to check and how you need to set your recording.

1. Your HD box should have a coax out (or to TV) connection on the back of the box.
2. Connect a coax cable from the back of the HD box to the "RF IN (FROM ANT.)" in the back of the VCR.
3. When you set your VCR to record you need to set it to copy channel 3 and tune the HD box to the channel you want to record.
This should fix your problem...

Good Luck...

There could be at least two ways to hook in your VCR. The common way is to hook your VCR inline (between) the sat box output (RF or antenna) and the TV RF/antenna input. This will allow you to play the VCR/DVD & record whatever channel the sat box is set to. I'm not real familiar with the newer sat boxes, but I assume they output one channel at a time, thus, you can only record that channel. On the older cable or outdoor antenna systems, you could record one channel while watching another. Perhaps some sat boxes have this capability. You might do a Google search with the box Model number to see if an online manual can be found. The other hookup possibility is if your TV set has audio/video inputs & outputs. Hook these to the matching input/output of the VCR/DVD.

Vcr timed recordings


I'd be pretty certain that every VCR made these days (and of the last 10-15+ years) can be set to do a timed recording. They can be set for a one time recording, weekly or daily record. Whether used with a cable/satellite box, or outside antenna, you must ensure proper hookup. I'm not real familiar with recent cable/sat receiver boxes, but older ones had to be set to the channel you wanted to record, as the VCR will only see that channel. On older cable (no cable box) & outdoor antenna systems, a VCR could tune in and record any channel, while you watched another one. Anyway, check the capability of the cable/sat box, and follow suggested hookup. You will likely need to set the box to the channel you want to record before you retire for the night.
