Re: Recording

Does it record when you are simultaneously watching a program? if yes, then recording circuits are OK. It is definitely a problem of settings. Try doing it again step by step. And before you program for timer recording, make sure that the VCR clock is set for correct time.

VCR won't record, just ejects tape

You have not mentioned the make and model number of the vcr. Any way the problem is due to end sensor or related circuit. End sensors are photo diods which you can check the shorting with a multy meter.

My vcr recorded my shows before i switched to a digital adapter now i cant get it to record anything ive tried everything

If the digital adaptor is connected to your TV, then the VCR will not get any signals to record. The VCR will also have to be converted, by adding another digital box, unless the first box has two digital tuners! You can connect another box if the VCR has two scart sockets, the second box connected to the other scart socket. To record after connection, leave the box on, set to the channel you want to record, and set the timer on the video. However when selecting the channel to record make certain that you select the scart socket with the box connected to it. Also make certain (if the VCR has it) PDC is set to OFF as it no longer works.
This way you can record shows while watching anothe channel.

I cant record TV

Proper setting is required. This time i don't know what connection you have, in case you use RF IN, fine tune your VCR's Tuner to the desired channel you wish to record. If you connect via A/V IN, select proper input on your VCR. Good Luck

VCR ejects tape when I try to record using the timer facility

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

what do you mean? you can set it to record mon-fri or
weekly. you do that on the timer. if you want to record the whole 6 or 8 hour tape
just press record the tape will go off itself at end of tape some vcrs you can set manual timers by pressing record button
more than once and can set to record up to 6 or 8 hours .
if it don't do that just leave it on record it will fill up tape until end
but will stay on same channel.
timers are unreliable if u make just one mistake it might miss
the show.

I need to record a show

You have to make sure the channel on the vcr is set to 04 and the channel on your tv is set to 03. That's how mine works.
