Haven't found answer to that, but there is a remote contol specifically for your unit now on EBAY at http://cgi.ebay.com/SHARP-VCR-RRMCGO173AJSA-Remote-Control_W0QQitemZ350117240995QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?_trksid=p3286.m20.l1116. The whole thing is under $10 including shipping. If nothing else, copy the model # of the remote and you might be able to find it cheaper someplace else.

The menu button on the front will get you to options to set the timer for recording movies automatically, change the language, set the stations, etc., but not to set the tape speed. That has to be done via the remote. OR - if you can get into the menu, you can record 1 minute of video, and set the tape speed for that recording. That, then becomes the tape speed, until the unit is unplugged.
Use contact cleaner (radio shack, or auto parts store), to clean the menu button, use the included red tube and spray in the crevice around the button and the case, and working the button many times until it makes contact.

SOURCE: Sony SLV-N71 VCR makes a rattling sound (ff, rew)

I make no claim to being any kind of an expert techie but it sounds to me like there are one or more loose or badly worn parts inside your machine. If you haven't had a look at the innards, try that. Loose things can usually be re-secured and, sometimes, worn parts can be replaced.

Unfortunately if there is no menu option to do that or button on the VCR you will need one of these remote controls

I need instruction to set recording for sharp h952 vcr


You need remote to get menu to set the clock then go to timed recording setting. Then you load a new tape, then shut down the vcr and wait for the timer to start the vcr and recording for you.

If you need a manual, google for sharp vcr manual download free from sharp website.
