If there is a mechanism fault on the VCR then the VCR will shut itself down. It sounds like the mechanism might be jammed, it's trying to move to the right position, when power is applied but can't so it stops. One thing that might be wrong is the mode switch might be faulty. This will cause all sorts of thing to happen, including putting on the timer record light even when none has been set.
I assume you wish to set the VCR (model DVP3050) clock. This is easy, just follow these instructions:
Press VCR, then press DISC/VCR MENU so MENU appears. If the clock has never been set, the CLOCK SET menu may appear when you press DISC/VCR MENU. If so, follow the instructions from step 3 on this page.
Press \/ or /\ to select CLOCK SET.Then, press >.
While the MONTH space is flashing, press \/ or /\ until the month appears.Then, press >.
While the DAY space is flashing, press \/ or /\ until the day appears.Then, press >.
While the YEAR space is flashing, press \/ or /\ until the year appears.Then, press >. The day of the week will appear automatically.
While the HOUR space is flashing, press \/ or /\ until the hour appears.Then, press >.
While the MINUTE space is flashing, press \/ or /\ until the minute appears.Then, press >.
While the AM or PM space is flashing, press \/ or /\ to point to AM or PM. Your selection will flash on the screen in the AM/PM space.
Press CLEAR/RESET or > to start the clock.

I know of four places that deal in Panasonic parts and they are all on-line!
Number one is Grandata, 2 is Willow Vale, 3 is CPC.
The fourth one I have just checked on and they have the upper cylinder unit in stock at £47.99 plus P&P!
And they are Curry's Partmaster.
You might want to try the others just in case they do it cheaper, but I find that Panasonic heads tend to be all around that sort of price.
I have the Zenith xbv613 model DVD/VCR player and also need to change the clock set up. For the xbv613 I had to switch the player to VCR. The menu button did not bring the clock set up in DVD. When I switched to VCR and hit the menu button the clock set up showed, where I used to right arrow button to change the time. Hope this helps.
Had the same problem with my one. After a lot of time spent testing etc and finding no low volts of any value present and looking on the web, I found that Panasonic tend to use a similar design of power supply for a lot of models and there appears to be, after a number of years in use, a weak link in the design/use with the voltage regulator. For this model, the regulator generic part number is STRG 6352 and the Panasonic part no is C5HACZZ00002. In the UK it is available from:- http:/www.chsinteractive.co.uk/electrical-components/misc/nvfj620b-c5haczz00002-ic-pana.htm If you need a service manual for this model, which is helpful for checking things/disasembly/assembly, you can obtain a free one from:- http://www.reptips.dk/Reptips/NV-FJ620.pdf As a note the panasonic replacement from chs came with the pins bent correctly, so it fitted directly after I had cut the old one out. Best of luck!
