Question about Toshiba M754 VCR
A friend gave me this VCR after my old one stopped working. Now we cannot seem to get it programed correctly to record. He no longer has the papers for it. I am trying to record chanel 7 Mon-Fri from 2:00-3:00. Please if someone could tell me all the correct things that I need to do. Thank you.
The answer to your question, "Does this have anything to do with the fact that the VCR and TV are now on cable?" is no.
The outside antenna and the cable are input signal sources only and have no effect on the functions of the VCR.
It sounds like you have an electronic problem with the timer circuitry. In order to locate exactly where the timer circuitry is located, you would need a service manual for your particular VCR. Using the service manual, you may or may not be able to repair it.
My suspicion is that it would be cheaper to just purchase a new VCR if timed recording is important to you.
