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?

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
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.
