How to set timer without remote

I don't have the remote and can get the timer set, but you have to press a button called "Timer Record" on the remote to get it to follow what the timer says. Is there anyway to do this without a remote? Or, is there a universal remote that can do this?

Go to the recording menu and make certain you have no timer recordings set. If you have clear them and try again.

Set vcr to record after timer is set


You need to turn off the Timer and then add your new program to the schedule. Then turn the Timer back on (power off).
On most VCRs, the Timer is enabled by turning off the unit. Thus turning it on will work (as long as a program isn't currently being recorded). If a program is currently being recorded, press Stop to interrupt the programmed recording. Then add your new program - that doesn't conflict with other programmed recording or exceed the number of available timed recordings for the unit. Then turn off the unit.

At least one VCR I owned was a bit trickier. You had to press the Timer button on the remote instead of the power button.

I hope this helps.

How do I set the sleep timer? We got the tv from a friend and it had no manuel.


Programming the Sleep Timer:

  1. Press and release the TV key.
  2. Press and hold the SLEEP key for three seconds. The illuminated component name turns on.
  3. Release the SLEEP key.
  4. Using the number keys, enter the desired time in minutes (from 1-99 minutes). To set the timer to an umber under 10 minutes, first press 0 and then the desired number (e.g.,05 for five minutes). The illuminated component name blinks with each key press.
  5. Once the second number is entered,the illuminated component name turns off.
    Tip Any key press other than the number keys is ignored. If you don't enter the sleep time within 10 seconds after pressing the SLEEP key, you must start over at step 1. The illuminated component name blinks four times and then turns off, indicating your attempt to program the Sleep Timer has been unsuccessful.
  6. The Sleep Timer is now set.
  7. Leave remote aimed at the TV. Once the Sleep Timer is set, you can continue to use the remote without affecting the Sleep Timer. However, because the timing mechanism for the Sleep Timer is built into the remote itself, the remote must be in TV Mode and pointed at the TV to activate the Sleep Timer.
    Note: If the ON·OFF key is pressed, the Sleep Timer is canceled.

When I try to record back to back programs on different channels the timers won't work. It tells me there is a conflict with the timers and tells me to change priority or whatever. I can set a manual...


Hi this is Luke.
DVR Priority settings are used to prioritize timers should there be a conflict between timers. The top of the list is the highest priority and takes precedence. The bottom of the list is the lowest priority. A lower priority timer will not fire if there is a higher priority timer at the same time. Timers that conflict with each other will display Attention 532. The message may display when switching from Single User Mode to Dual User Mode because the receiver recalculates timers for conflicts.
  1. Press DVR three times on the remote (twice for a 942 receiver). The skip timer icon (red x) designates a conflicting timer.
  2. Select Timers.
  3. Select Set Priority.
  4. Select the timer to change.
  5. Use the Up and Down arrow buttons on the remote or the Move Up and Move Down options on the screen to move the timer priority one at a time. Use the Move to Top and Move to Last options on the screen to make the timer top or last priority.
  6. Select Done.

Selecting Automatically resolve by priority will allow the receiver to set the priority level of the timer. The last timer created will have the lowest priority level and will not be recorded if both tuners are being used for other higher priority level timers.

Selecting Change the priority of this timer will allow the customer to set the priority level of the timer. With the new event highlighted in the Daily Schedule screen (the event will display with the skip icon), press Select. Select Restore and then Yes. The new timer will now have a higher priority level than the conflicting timers.

You may also want to resolve the conflict by:
  1. Press Menu on the remote.
  2. Select Daily Schedule.
  3. Select Timers.
  4. Arrow over and select the timer that needs to be edited.
  5. Select Edit.
  6. Make the desired changes then select done.
Let me know if this help.

Timer recording can be programmed on-screen with
the remote control. The built-in timer allows automatic
unattended recording of up to 8 programs within 1
month.

EXAMPLE: Program a timer recording for the 26th day,
channel 125 (CATV), 11:00 - 11:30 PM on timer program

When a TV is connected with an audio/video cable, turn the
TV and this VCR on and select the video input mode on the

Press MENU on the Remote.
Check the “TIMER REC SET”
option is selected, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select one of

Timer light flashing,


You have a record event set for your VCR. Consult your user manual for specific ways to delete.

Generally, if you still have the remote, you can press the menu button, goto timer / record setup and see what events have already been saved. There may be information on the screen indicating how to delete.

VCR not timer recording, VCR will not turn on with timer


If no menu, unplug, and let it set a few minutes. Replug and the on-screen menu should appear. Reset the set-up (date, etc). I had the same experience as one of the other posters with JVC customer service telling me the menu button on the remote was malfunctioning, and I should purchase a new remote from them.
After you input your programming, be sure to hit the Timer button on your remote. If you want to change tapes or playback, you will need to hit the Timer button again (take it off Timer) for access to your VCR. Be sure to reset it to Timer afterwards, or you will not be able to record.

Timer programming


The remote control is key to timer recording. Notice the selections are color-coded: grey-black for VCR, gold for DVD. Then look at the second and third rows of buttons. Each button has multiple functions depending on if the VCR or DVD button has been pressed. To record from TV signal to VHS, press the VCR very top button. (The controller will also control your TV if set up properly, so be sure the small switch at the top-left of the controller is set to the VCR/DVD side. I use a separate controller for my TV so I never change this.) Now press the "PROG." button located beside the "3" button. (Your television must be on and set to "see" the VCR not the normal TV signal.) Now look at the second row of buttons, the ones with the "+" signs. The grey words below them indicate what they'll do when pressed (the same buttons do what the gold words say when the DVD is selected.) So to set the start time, press the first "+" button with the word "START" below it. That sets the start time of the show you want to record. It'll go in 30-minute intervals if you hold it down, otherwise it's a minute-at-a-press. If you go too far, you can back up with the third row's "-" button. When you have the start time set, move on to the next button labeled "STOP" and similarly set the end-time of the program. Continue with the third "+" button to set the date you want to record. Lastly, set the channel by pressing the fourth "+" button labeled "CH." It's a bit tedious if you have a high channel number to get to. When you have all these set properly, it's important to then press the "TIMER" button (located next to the keypad number 6). That turns the VCR off but "watching" for the settings you've just made, and it'll wake up and do the recording at the proper moment. You can confirm you've got it waiting by looking at the display on the VCR; to the left of the channel number a red "clock" image should be lit. That says it's waiting. You can program several shows to record by repeating these steps, or you can do them all sequentially by setting the first one, then pressing the "PROG" button again (rather than the "TIMER" button) and setting up the next recording. When you're done, THEN press the "TIMER" button and the VCR will go to sleep until it's assigned wake-up time.

How to set the vcr to record


Hi I'm not familiar with your model in particular, but normally there will be a timer button on the remote that you must press, or you must turn the vcr off after programming it for the timer recordings to be made. There should be a timer indicator on the front, either a symbol or a red light depending on the age of the vcr. If you program it, then press the timer button on the remote, the timer light should be on and the vcr will shut itself off, if it is the other type, then the timer indicator should stay lit when you shut off the machine. If that light is on, then your timer recordings should work. Hope this helps, good luck!
