I used timer record set in menu for recording a program, but the set timer was never on so that the program was never recorded. i don't know why it is not working. I really want to record some shows, but I can't. Please help me...
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.

Unfortunately, most VCR recorders/tapes don't have an 8 hour option. It is 2 hours on SP (standard), LP for 4 hours or EP (SLP, depending on the unit) for 6 hours. (The slower recording speed usually gives poorer video quality.)
You would need a non-standard VCR cassette to get 8 hour recording. If you do have a tape that would hold 3 hours at SP, then use an EP setting to get 8 hours of recording on your VCR. I don't think I've seen any tapes that do that recording length even when VCRs were popular.
I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in using the Universal Remote control with some recorder. In most cases, the timer recording side of a DVR/VCR must be performed with it's own remote. Hence it would be good if you can provide the device you're using with the Remote to provide further assistance.
Hello, you can go to the toshiba web site and download the manual from there.
The other option is to go into the TV menu, and select the timer rec set selection and access it there and fill in the times for the program you want to recording and that should do it.
I hope tihs helps.
If the internal clock is not correct, it probably wouldn't let you time record because it would record at the wrong time. Maybe there was a power surge and it caused it to clear the time? Try setting the time through the menu and if you need a manual, call 1-800-SAMSUNG (if you haven't done that already).
I have a Panasonic TV with built-in VCR, I had Comcast put in a converter box and was given instructions on how to set up the system to record my wife's programs, I had to select the program (in advance of scheduled time) to be recorded through the TV & converter box to the VCR. Next styep- select "Show" and I received a menu the first of which was "R" I clicked the "R" and a menu for selecting Repeat record start/stop times appeared Click OK and was then directed to to set up the VCR according to Panasonic VCR instructions. Worked for a day then the "R" menu on the converter box disappeared. Both the VCR and TV had to be set to Ch 3 to get it to work, But that's history. When it quit working ("R" menu), I had Comcast come get their box . PS The tech who showed up to pick up the converter box knew nothing about any "R" (record) menus except on the most ecpensive converter box. That cinched my decision, Oh Wel!.
