LG RHT397H DVD Timer record problem


I'm new to this but have just bought an LG RHT 397 H DVD Recorder and when I follow the instructions for timer recording ( Home>>TV.{.up/down to}>> Timer Record >> Enter... I get a message saying " Try Channel Setup First"

I do not understand what to do next, can't find channel setup in manual.

Manual record works ok.

Everything else seems to work.

What am I doing wrong ???

My DVD/ hdd recorder froze last night so I reset it. Now it won't turn on and is making a clicking noise inside. What do I do please?

Sounds like a power supply problem. It could be due to bad capacitors - look for bulging or domed capacitors.
