Question about JVC HR-A592U S-VHS VCR

VCR not timer recording, VCR will not turn on with timer

I have programmed all my shows to my JVC VCR, and it does not acknowledge the shows, will not turn on.

My VCR only works when you record directly, but not when a show is on timer record.

    I've already unplugged the VCR and let it sit 10 minutes, then I reprogrammed my shows on the Timer.

    Still nothing!!!

    Now what? Believe me, I did everything you could think of.


  • mjc8456 Mar 02, 2009

    Thanks for getting back to me with a great answer. Unfortunately, I do get a blue menu screen, I've reset the time and date, plus re-programmed my shows to come on timer.

    It still does not acknowledge my timed shows!!

    Any other suggestions??


  • mjc8456 Mar 02, 2009

    Hi, thanks, the dates and time are fine. I will try clicking?? the timer button on my remote? Where is there a TIMER button? I thought you just said OK/Yes after you set up your shows which brings you back to menu. That's the way I've always done it!

    I'll try your way and see, thanks again!


  • mjc8456 Mar 03, 2009

    Oh My God, thanks sooooooooo much for your thorough description of the "Timer" method! I set it, and I'm off and running, let's see if it works!!

    If yes, then again, thanks sooooo much, I feel so silly now!

If no menu, unplug, and let it set a few minutes. Replug and the on-screen menu should appear. Reset the set-up (date, etc). I had the same experience as one of the other posters with JVC customer service telling me the menu button on the remote was malfunctioning, and I should purchase a new remote from them.
After you input your programming, be sure to hit the Timer button on your remote. If you want to change tapes or playback, you will need to hit the Timer button again (take it off Timer) for access to your VCR. Be sure to reset it to Timer afterwards, or you will not be able to record.

    After reprogramming, have you clicked the TIMER button on your remote? This is the only way to activate programming. Once the TIMER is engaged the VCR power turns off and a little rectangle appears on your display, next to the time of day, and recording will happen as you have scheduled it. If for any reason you press TIMER and take it out of the recording mode, you can watch other tapes, or change tapes, but you must once again activate TIMER to record. In addition, did you double-check the dates and times you have programmed?



  • hunterj2 Mar 03, 2009

    This is probably the only VCR that requires programming be locked in with the Timer button. If you have the standard remote that came with the JVC vcr, it is found on the bottom third of the remote--middle button between vcr/tv and cancel/reset. Set your programs, press Timer, and you are good to go. Need to remove tape or watch another tape? You must unset Timer by pressing it. Once again, you must press Timer in order to record. You will see a little rectangle appear on your VCR display that tells you that you are in the programming mode.

    Great! I had problems remembering that pesky timer button as well. Seems to be an anomaly with the JVC.

Set vcr to record after timer is set


You need to turn off the Timer and then add your new program to the schedule. Then turn the Timer back on (power off).
On most VCRs, the Timer is enabled by turning off the unit. Thus turning it on will work (as long as a program isn't currently being recorded). If a program is currently being recorded, press Stop to interrupt the programmed recording. Then add your new program - that doesn't conflict with other programmed recording or exceed the number of available timed recordings for the unit. Then turn off the unit.

At least one VCR I owned was a bit trickier. You had to press the Timer button on the remote instead of the power button.

I hope this helps.

Lost manual. Cannot get HR A591U JVC VCR program to record a future cable tv program. Seems I have tried everything but it does not record as I set up. It will record an existing show by pressing...


Timer Recording JVC VCR HR A591U
Timer recording can be programmed on-screen with
the remote control. The built-in timer allows automatic
unattended recording of up to 8 programs within 1
month.

EXAMPLE: Program a timer recording for the 26th day,
channel 125 (CATV), 11:00 - 11:30 PM on timer program
number 1 (Tape speed: EP).

When a TV is connected with an audio/video cable, turn the
TV and this VCR on and select the video input mode on the
TV.


• After timer recording is completed, the VCR turns off
automatically.
• You can program the timer recording while a regular
recording is in progress; the menu screens will not be
recorded.
• The timer recording will start at 20 seconds before the time
you predetermined.

Press MENU on the Remote.
Check the “TIMER REC SET”
option is selected, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select one of
the program lines, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select the
date, then press ENTER.

Set the start time, end time,
channel and tape speed as in
step 3.
NOTE: To record from external
source, press SET –/+
and set the channel to
"L". "L" will appear next
to CH 125 (or 69).

To enter other programs,
repeat step 2 through 4. Or,
press MENU twice to return
to the normal screen.

Press TIMER on the Remote.
The power will go off, the
TIMER REC indicator ( ) will
light and the VCR stands by
for recording.

To cancel a program:

Press the SET –/+ to select the
“TIMER REC SET” option in the
MENU. Then press SET –/+ to
select the unnecessary program,
and press CANCEL to cancel the
program.

Timer programming


The remote control is key to timer recording. Notice the selections are color-coded: grey-black for VCR, gold for DVD. Then look at the second and third rows of buttons. Each button has multiple functions depending on if the VCR or DVD button has been pressed. To record from TV signal to VHS, press the VCR very top button. (The controller will also control your TV if set up properly, so be sure the small switch at the top-left of the controller is set to the VCR/DVD side. I use a separate controller for my TV so I never change this.) Now press the "PROG." button located beside the "3" button. (Your television must be on and set to "see" the VCR not the normal TV signal.) Now look at the second row of buttons, the ones with the "+" signs. The grey words below them indicate what they'll do when pressed (the same buttons do what the gold words say when the DVD is selected.) So to set the start time, press the first "+" button with the word "START" below it. That sets the start time of the show you want to record. It'll go in 30-minute intervals if you hold it down, otherwise it's a minute-at-a-press. If you go too far, you can back up with the third row's "-" button. When you have the start time set, move on to the next button labeled "STOP" and similarly set the end-time of the program. Continue with the third "+" button to set the date you want to record. Lastly, set the channel by pressing the fourth "+" button labeled "CH." It's a bit tedious if you have a high channel number to get to. When you have all these set properly, it's important to then press the "TIMER" button (located next to the keypad number 6). That turns the VCR off but "watching" for the settings you've just made, and it'll wake up and do the recording at the proper moment. You can confirm you've got it waiting by looking at the display on the VCR; to the left of the channel number a red "clock" image should be lit. That says it's waiting. You can program several shows to record by repeating these steps, or you can do them all sequentially by setting the first one, then pressing the "PROG" button again (rather than the "TIMER" button) and setting up the next recording. When you're done, THEN press the "TIMER" button and the VCR will go to sleep until it's assigned wake-up time.

How to set the vcr to record


Hi I'm not familiar with your model in particular, but normally there will be a timer button on the remote that you must press, or you must turn the vcr off after programming it for the timer recordings to be made. There should be a timer indicator on the front, either a symbol or a red light depending on the age of the vcr. If you program it, then press the timer button on the remote, the timer light should be on and the vcr will shut itself off, if it is the other type, then the timer indicator should stay lit when you shut off the machine. If that light is on, then your timer recordings should work. Hope this helps, good luck!
