This is more a work-around than a solution, as the unit is failing to function normally; however, having the identical problem I observed that the unit is failing to power on at 2:00 minutes before beginning recording, a necessary step to record to DVD.
My work-around is the following:
1) Set up the timer, inputting necessary date, time, etc. as normal. With the unit still powered on, start the timed recording mode by pressing timer set, as normal. You will see the red clock icon and the DVD logo iluminate on the VFD.
2) Press the Standby-On power button. This will power the unit on in VCR mode. You should at this time be unable to switch from VCR to DVD mode since the DVD is still in timer mode. LEAVE THE UNIT POWERED ON in this manner. The timer will function and the DVD will record normally.
I have no clue why my unit suddenly forgot how to power up on its own in order to record to DVD. If anyone has an answer for that one please post!

Here is the owner's manual for your DVD machine. This is a VHS recorder but not a DVD recorder. To record VHS tapes to DVDs, you will need a DVD recorder.
You will plug the yellow video out connector on the VHS to the yellow 'Video in' connector on the DVD Recorder. Do the same for the red and white audio connections, out on the VHS, IN on the DVD Recorder. Connect your TV to the DVD recorder so you can see the picture you are recording.

Testimonial: "Thank you for you help, I thought we bought a recorder both ways but aparently we didn't. If we can get the manual I will be eternally grateful. "
Hi, thanks for posting your Question.. This problem might be can be due to a writing error problem on bad media. What's more, this error is 'non-critical', and can easily be cleared in most cases by the user.
Press 'DISPLAY' button (should be on remote); this should clear it. Also check to make sure the recordable DVD media is 4x - 8x write speed. Recommended media brand: Verbatim DVD-R/RW if you can get it, or Kodak will work.
Discard any discs you previously used in this machine which may have triggered the error.
Or you can try the below step.
Unplug the unit from the wall AC outlet for two hours to reset .. If it doesn't reset, Turn on unit, select Hold channel up and play buttons on front of the unit for 5 seconds..Unit should reinitialize and work better..
Good luck to you..
