Question about RCA VR349 VHS VCR

1 Answer

Clearing program model vr616hf, original remote no good and long gone, universal remote can't clear a set program. When trying to get rid of it, can get so far and then prompt to press clear button, but there isn't one on the universal remote and unplugging the vcr doesn't work either. Any suggestions?

You are in a tough spot cause you probably keep the VCR to transfer old Tapes. FYI, did you know that DVD's have a shelf life of less than 10 years and VCR VHS tapes are good for 20 years plus? Keep your old tapes.

Write RCA and find out if you can get a new remote, it is basically the only solution.

Check with Ebay for a used one, you might get lucky.

How do I program it for a Clear Tunes TV?


You can use the CODE SEARCH (or equivalent) feature of your Panasonic remote to find something that will handle some or all functions of your TV. If a search through all codes stored in the remote is unsuccessful, you may have to try a different universal remote. All universal remotes do not store all possible codes.

My Sony VCR Model SLV-662HF will not accept cassettes. I am using a universal remote control. The VCR's display shows APC 71501 and 81508. Do these APC codes refer to the VCR or the All In One universal...


The codes are to program the universal remote control to communicate with the Sony VCR. Try programming the universal remote using one of these: 60000 60032 60033 60035
The acceptance of the cassettes may not be related to the use of a universal remote control. If the URC doesn't have the "equivalent" functionality of the VCR's original remote control, you may not be able to use the URC to perform the functions of the original remote control.

GE VG4020 constantly say's timer is set and won't record .


You can try the makers website for the book, they might have a free pdf of it. You will struggle without a remote though. Enter the model number into Google and see if you can find a remote for the model. If they are too expensive for the original, then get a good quality universal. But i would always recommend the original remote over universals.

How can i program a VCR plus with out a remote the timer light keeps flashing


Generally the timer flashing means that ethier a programme for recording is set to record or wrong information is added. You need to check the timer record menu to see if a recording is schedule. I suggest you might need to get a remote for the model or get a universal one. Placing a blank tape in a powering down, should see the timer stop, but if a recording schedule is there it will still be on. The only way to clear it (without the remote) might to let it record! You don't give the make or model so I can't say anymore.

Need universal remote


You should have no trouble getting a universal remote to work the basic functions: power, tape motion, etc. But you may have problems with advanced functions such as programming or accessing any special features the model may have. Often only the original remote has all the buttons needed. Universal remotes don't usually give complete control. If you're just looking to play tapes, you should be good with any basic universal remote that.

No manual or remote


Following the instructions I have been able to program a Philips SRU4105WM/17 universal remote using the first Mitsubishi code from the code list. However, I had to have the universal remote "learn" the vcr/tv button function (I assigned it to the Exit button). Good thing I still have the original Mitsubishi remote:-) I haven't tried having the universal remote learn all the functions, such as Cancel, Counter Reset, Audio Function, Video Function etc. I could see if I'm able to program those, if you'd like. LMK if you have any other questions.

Program GE VCR


By chance is there a menu option for resetting the timed record previously entered? you might also do a google search using your model number. There are suppliers out there specializing in original remote boxes.

No remote or manual.


So we're basically screwed when the recording speed is stuck on SP? We can't change it??

I have a Sanyo VCR and just bought a universal remote, hoping that I'd be able to access some kind of menu to change the recording speed. I can't get it to change the speed, though.

Is there any hope for me?
