I've had this for a few years and have never had any problems. This week, however, nothing has recorded at that I had pre-set to tape. I've had the same program pre-set to tape every day, Mon-Fri, for quite some time. I checked the menu/pre-set program list and it's still there (thought that maybe someone wiped it out, but that's not the case). If I'm watching something and decide to also tape it, there's no problem. So, the VCR does tape, just not the pre-set program. Any suggestions?

On the timer record screen, move the cursor left to the 'date' field, and scroll down until the date disappears, and it only shows a day of the week. If it shows 'Mon', your programme will record every Monday.

The “Timer” Indicator lights up on DECK.
• You can do Timer Recording with the power on or off.
• “TIMER REC WILL START SOON” appears on-screen for 2 minutes
before Timer Recording starts. If DECK is in DVD mode, no message
appears, but the VCR REC Indicator, the VCR mode indicator and
“REC” will flash on Multi function Display.
Somehow, my HDD/DVD recorder recorded correctly 2 times last night, even if I did not do anything specific to fix. I will keep an eye on new occurences of this problem, but it appears at the moment that the issue disappeared by itself.
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
Several things to check
1) Your time - set it manually and remove the automatic time set
2) Try manually recording even a few min of anything (just put on channel to record, press DVD button and DVD Record button) - does it give you an error message on that disk? If so it might be because you are using 16x and machine sometimes gets messed up and won't record on those speed disks - same with +R sometimes does this - try recording on 8x -R ones.
Hopefully this helps - if not try unplugging unit from wallsocket and leave off about 30min then try setting program again etc (plus current local time) and use a new disk and see if problem still occurs - sometimes just unplugging it "resets" everything and then starts working again.
