My solution is a simple one. I set the Record Time via "TIMER REC." on your remote for 10 minutes BEFORE and AFTER my desired program time.

Now it's a simple matter to EDIT to the program content I want.

Hope this helps you!

How do you reset clock on your DVD Recorder DMR-ES15. Can't find booklet that came with recorder.


You can either copy and paste the following link into your browser, for quick-view, and/or save the .pdf document (instructions for Panasonic DMR-ES15 DVD recorder):

http://videolinq.tafe.net/attached_docs/pdf/equipment/Panasonic_DMR-ES15_User_Manual.pdf

(verified and complete to give you a basic operation manual for FREE download)

or you can try to set the clock manually, do this:

press [FUNCTIONS] on the remote while unit is on, to bring up the setup menu, scroll to 'OTHERS' look for 'CLOCK' or 'CLOCK SET' option, highlight it, click it, set the clock. Press [ENTER/OK] to access the date hour minute, etc., then press the relevant remote arrow buttons to select correct time/date, then press [ENTER/OK] to store the current setting. Then press [RETURN] to exit the setup. Clock is now set (this model does not offer automatic clock adjustment for daylight saving).

If the above suggestion does not work, download the pdf and save it for accurate reference. Either may help you.

The time show late every single day..every day i must turn the right time..


Do you have your DVR set for automatic clock updates? I changed mine to manual clock settings because of problems with the new dates for Daylight Savings Time. Every few months I have to adjust the time by a minute or so if I find I am missing the intro to programs that I record. I also have to do the Daylight Savings Time shifts each fall and spring.

Recently, i;ve been trying to record tv programs on my Panasonic DVD Video Recorder DMR-E50, as i have done so for many years. However, lately, whenever i program it to record a tv program using the timer...


Hi Leah,

Good description and good job in narrowing down the problem. The lens is the remaining common denominator.

You need to get a CD/DVD lens cleaner. It should have a disk and a bottle of cleaning solution. They are available in the electronics dept of most chain stores.

A couple drops of cleaning solution on the feathery cleaning element attached to the disk, insert the disk into the machine and hit play. Takes just a couple seconds.

Best regards
Mike

RCA DVD Recorder (drc8000n) loses time


Is it always a minus 4:11:50 reset? Do you use Guide Plus+ or something like it for recording off-air? I would think the clock would be set automatically from an external source if you wanted to synchronize with scheduled programs.

I would bet if yoy set the clock and disconnected the cable it would NOT change again in 3 hours as it has been doing. Experiment with that sometime. I'll bet the problem is up the foodchain somwhere.

Magnovox MWR20V6 will not begin recording when it should.


This is more a work-around than a solution, as the unit is failing to function normally; however, having the identical problem I observed that the unit is failing to power on at 2:00 minutes before beginning recording, a necessary step to record to DVD.

My work-around is the following:

1) Set up the timer, inputting necessary date, time, etc. as normal. With the unit still powered on, start the timed recording mode by pressing timer set, as normal. You will see the red clock icon and the DVD logo iluminate on the VFD.

2) Press the Standby-On power button. This will power the unit on in VCR mode. You should at this time be unable to switch from VCR to DVD mode since the DVD is still in timer mode. LEAVE THE UNIT POWERED ON in this manner. The timer will function and the DVD will record normally.

I have no clue why my unit suddenly forgot how to power up on its own in order to record to DVD. If anyone has an answer for that one please post!

i have uploaded the user manual for this model, it should be visible within the next 24 hours. the quick version is this:

if you haven't done so yet, set the clock
menu/ use up/down arrows to select "clock set", press right arrow to select, set day, year, etc using up and down arrows, when each is set, the right arrow moves you to the next bit

once clock is set

timer recording
menu
use up and down arrows to scroll to timer recording, and press the right arrow to select
set the program number (1-8)
set frequency (once, daily, weekly)
set the date to record
set start time (i usually go 5 mins prior)
set end time (i usually go 5 mins after)
set channel number
set tape speed
exit by pressing clear/c reset
press t-set to activate the timer

the timer rec light should come on, the timer recording will not be active unless you press the t-set button

hope this helps

Either You haven't set the time/timer correctly or you need to find a way to clear/format the hard disk.
