Question about Sony RDR-GX300 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Leaves blank TV screen when Return button operated

After setting a Timer / record program, the unit will not return to the TV picture when pressing the Return button.

The only way to go back to the TV program is to Turn OFF the DVd recorder.

Whilst the Record timer remains SET no actual program recording takes place - On Playback of that disk the record time shows on the TV screen, the time counts down on the recorder display BUT there is no actual content replayed.

It may be something simple but it is difficult to get any advice either way from Sony !

It sounds as though the unit is actually recording a DVD, but is getting no incoming signal to record. What is your recording source? Satellite and receiver? Antenna? Cable box? In the set-up menu, be sure you have chosen the proper input source; i.e., recording from where? You may be able to access that menu through the Function button on the remote, AFter setting that menu, be sure to press Return to restore the recorder to the ready mode. If you are using the RF input for recording, be sure that is selected as well, as opposed to L1 or L2. The input channel must match the output channel on your receiver, usually channel 3 or four. What is the model number?

Lost manual. Cannot get HR A591U JVC VCR program to record a future cable tv program. Seems I have tried everything but it does not record as I set up. It will record an existing show by pressing...


Timer Recording JVC VCR HR A591U
Timer recording can be programmed on-screen with
the remote control. The built-in timer allows automatic
unattended recording of up to 8 programs within 1
month.

EXAMPLE: Program a timer recording for the 26th day,
channel 125 (CATV), 11:00 - 11:30 PM on timer program
number 1 (Tape speed: EP).

When a TV is connected with an audio/video cable, turn the
TV and this VCR on and select the video input mode on the
TV.


• After timer recording is completed, the VCR turns off
automatically.
• You can program the timer recording while a regular
recording is in progress; the menu screens will not be
recorded.
• The timer recording will start at 20 seconds before the time
you predetermined.

Press MENU on the Remote.
Check the “TIMER REC SET”
option is selected, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select one of
the program lines, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select the
date, then press ENTER.

Set the start time, end time,
channel and tape speed as in
step 3.
NOTE: To record from external
source, press SET –/+
and set the channel to
"L". "L" will appear next
to CH 125 (or 69).

To enter other programs,
repeat step 2 through 4. Or,
press MENU twice to return
to the normal screen.

Press TIMER on the Remote.
The power will go off, the
TIMER REC indicator ( ) will
light and the VCR stands by
for recording.

To cancel a program:

Press the SET –/+ to select the
“TIMER REC SET” option in the
MENU. Then press SET –/+ to
select the unnecessary program,
and press CANCEL to cancel the
program.

Is there a way to record something on a dvd from the tv?


Which model do you have? Some of the GoVideo DVD/VCR units are only DVD players so you can only record to the VHS tape. If you have a DVD writer version, you may find it tedious but doable. First load the blank DVD and set the Disc Record mode (you will see an on-screen prompt) for VR (this lets you do more editing of the video) or Video (this choice is compatible with more players). Then set the REC Mode by pressing that button repeatedly (SP (2 hours per disc), LP or XP(1 hour per disc). For one-touch recording (recording the current program that you are receiving on the device), select your Channel and Audio track then press REC. If you press REC several times, you will set when the recording stops. Otherwise it will not end until you press STOP.

For timed recording, press Timer Record. Then go through all the items to set the DVD recording information. Record mode, Channel, start and stop times. The left and right arrows let you change menu sections and the up down scroll through the settings. Press Enter to save the programmed recording. Then press Return. Make sure blank media (or with enough room for the programmed item) is in the machine. On some units, you will need to turn off the machine for the Timed Recording to work.

For recording from external sources, press Input instead of Channel.

For any recording, leave a bit of extra space on the disc to Finalize the DVD if you will want to play the disc on other players.

I hope this helps.
