Question about Televison & Video
I have Verizon FiOS for TV service, but I can't figure out how to record onto my VCR a) in real time pressing record or b) using the timer.
SOURCE: 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!

If your plan is to copy a VHS movie to a blank VHS tape, the connections would require a 3 wire RCA connector/cable. The unit where the original movie will be played will be the player. Connect the yellow video RCA cable to the VIDEO OUT, the red & white to the AUDIO L/R OUT. On the 2nd unit designated as recorder, slip in the blank VHS tape. Connect the other end of the RCA 3 wire cable to yellow VIDEO IN, the red & white to the AUDIO L/R IN. Connect the RF OUT of the 2nd unit (recorder to the ANT IN of a TV set. Set the TV to either Channel 3 or 4 as the case may be.
If the recorder has a manual selector or via remote, pls verify that it is set to Video and not tuner (or channels) input.
Press Record on the recorder (2nd unit), press play on the 1st unit (player). The TV will serve as monitor to your copying progress.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or shoould you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

Simple. The Cassette's 'Prevent Erasure' tab is missing. Just cover with Scotch tape and reload. Now try recording.

SOURCE: VCR will not record (PV-V4624S)
SET YOUR TO RF LEVEL " LOW" OR YOUR CABLE CONNECTION IS WRONG CHECK IT.IF THE PROBLEM REMAINS, CHECK IT ON STANDARD DEFINITION TV FOR RECORDING.IF THE PROGRAM RECORDS OK THEN IT ID NOT COMPITIBLE FOR DIGITAL SIGNALS. BUT IF NO RECORDINGS PERFORM CHECK THE VIDEO HEAD CLOGGINGS OR MAY BE MAIN "IC" PROBLEM.

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.
