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?

Hi, Not usually especially if the remote had a sleep timer button. the only excception is if the tvis fitted with buttons for accessing/navigating the menu functions from the local keyboard.
A quick way to verify if theremote is outputting any IR is to view the front of the remote with a digital camera/ phone camera etc whike pressing a button. you will normall see a white flickering light if all is well. note this doesn't confirm if there is good signal - more only an indication the remote is operational

Timer recording

If the internal clock is not correct, it probably wouldn't let you time record because it would record at the wrong time. Maybe there was a power surge and it caused it to clear the time?
Try setting the time through the menu and if you need a manual, call 1-800-SAMSUNG (if you haven't done that already).

Can I change the recording speed from SP to EP without the remote

I alreay figured it out on my own! However, if you'd like to pay me the "premium" price maybe I could help you out. What a joke this site is. Anyone who pays for simple advice to a site like yours is a ****** or really has no knowledge of the internet that you scam their money out of them. What a deal, the general public answers all your questions for you and a couple of A-Holes collect all the money. Scum Bags!

TV wont come on

the picture tube is most likely not out. but there is a problem in the high voltage transformer part of the set( this is what fires up the picture tube). a problem like that can be just as expensive as a new picture tube. if it's not still in warranty it would be cost prohibitive to repair.

Sleep timer

Pres Timer. Make sure the time is set. Then just set the off time. It's not really a sleep button, but it works.

Program timer light blinking

The timer light blinks when the AC power has been disconnected and the clock is not set. This is how the set warns you that it can no longer do timer recordings. Setting the clock and doing an autoprogram will fix it, but both the remote and the remote receiver must be working. If the original remote is not damaged and has good batteries in it but does not work on that set and you cannot get any other universal remote to work, then the remote receiver (the IR "eye") inside the set has failed and needs to be replaced. I have seen many of those little receivers failing recently. If you do not have experience changing electronic parts on small PC boards then have a qualified tech change it for you.

Timer record set

Make sure the clock is set. Since the clock must be set before the timer will work, be sure you have entered an accurate date, day of the week, and time (including AM or PM). And always check the clock after a power outage. Also, check that your videotape does not have the tab removed which protects against further recording.
