You will need to take the original remoter and go into the menu, find the channel set up and reprogram the VCR for the channels, as when you lost power the channels also went out because of the memory chips need the power to hold the data.

My VCR will not record but I can play tapes on it. how come?

The simplest explanation is that you are using a video tape that has it's protect tab removed. Covering the slot with tape will solve that. However if the tab is there, it might be that the switch inside it pushes on is bent or broken.

Can't view tapes on vcr

I assume that you are coming in on channel 73 because you don't have a line level input on the display (tv) you are using. If that is the case, your options are limited. If you DO have a line input to the monitor, run the VCR to that input and just switch to that input when you want to use the VCR. If you have RF in only, -that would be the screw on type connector- you would have to have the same kind of output on the VCR. Understand, the VCR will be outputting to channel 3 or 4, so you would need a 2x rf switch, and you would have to change from channel 73 to 3 or 4 whenever you wanted to watch a movie. There may be other options, but I don't really know what you have.

Remote control problems

I would love to say we can help, but the truth is, you remote needs to be replaced. One of the advantages to have the remote is that you wear out the remote, not the controls on the tv. And replacing a remote is much cheaper. You have done all you can to save this remote. You will need to replace it.

I suggest you get the Tape path cleaned up. Could be dirty video heads or a dirty Control Head. Use a good 'wet' type cleaning cassette.

Tape will not load

A schematic would definitely be a plus here, as you could then check the logic levels from the sensor(s), as the "light path" is interupted. If voltage levels changed properly, and no tape load was initiated, then this would indicate a problem elsewhere. You may want to also check for the presence of power supply voltages. If the voltage supply for the loading motor (often the capstan motor) is missing then there would be no load initiate. It sounds like you have some knowledge of how these things work- a good thing. As you are probably aware, todays electronic equipment (VCRs included) is substandard, disposable, not worth investing much if any repair. Find an old Panasonic manufactured unit, and such will often outlive several of these "lighter than air" cheap rascals.
