Hi,

Since you have not mentioned the model number or make of the TV/VCR combo I could not refer to the manual. If you have if handy please try to follow the steps in the user manual.

Thank You

Panasonic makes VCR programming quick and easy, with the VCR Plus+feature. Just enter the PlusCode numbers (published in over 500 newspapers nationwide, as well as in TV Guide) for the programs you wish to record—and the VCR is automatically set! This high quality, four-head Hi-Fi VCR features Auto Clock Set (using the Extended Data Service signal carried by many PBS stations). In the event of a power outage, a back-up system will automatically reset the time and date within 24 hours.

I have a Quasar VH6200 VCR. Can it be connected to a new TV and be able to record TV programs. I have connected it but it won't record. What can I do?


I have the same machine and the same problem as you do. Apparently, because this model has a hardwired, built in calendar, it experiences a "Y2K"-like problem and will not record (even manually!) when you either try to program a date that is more recent than 2008, or the machine's present date "hits the wall." The solution is to program a year that is identical to the current year. Example: day and date-wise, 2014 is identical to 1997. So entering the correct month and day, but using 1997 for the year entry will allow normal operation with correct day/date timer operation and the stupid CPU will be none the wiser. As for using this machine with modern HDTVs, there should be no problem as long as the TV has standard analog A/V jacks. For recording the machine would need a source of standard-def video, either basic cable TV or a digital converter box if using over the air signals. BTW, 1998 is a match for 2015, so the above solution will be good for two years. After that, just look up a leap within 1990 to 2008 year that matches 2016.

How do i record a show onto a tape?


lets say you are hooked up correctly (cable to VCR in (from cable/sat box) & cable to TV from VCR out) and the VCR is set to Ch 3,, (PLEASE NOTE THE TV MUST BE ON CH 3)

program a recording
the VCR clock / date must be set and not flashing 12:00
then you go to menu, program a recording by imputing the start time / end time of the show and the date it will be recorded and Ch 3...(you might have to set your cable box for the same date/time as the VCR or manually turn to that ch you wish to record that morning or before you go to bed) put a new tape in the machine....

manual recording
a show,game or special comes on and you sitting and want to watch and record and even edit (no commercials) put tape in... press record button get the remote so you can pause (on commercials) and press pause again to resume recording

Can the date chip be updated in a mitsubishi VCR?


You can work around the problem. Check old calendars for a year where the days and dates correspond to the 2010 calendar. Program that year in your VCR and it will allow you to program recording times. The year 2004 will work.

Can no set date on VCR past 2008


dig around for old calendars or maybe the internet. compare dates. like for example. (my birhtay) july 12 in 1998 was a sunday. in 2009 july 12 was also a sunday. so u know that all dates in 2009 will line up with 1998. so in setting the vcr, make like its 98.

VCR Calendar Out of Date


Program the VCR as if it were 1998. The day date sequence is the same as 2009 (and not a leap year).

This should solve the problem

VCR will not go to date 2009


I wish you luck on your search for an answer, but vcr's are programmed for a possible life expectancy.  So ur vcr was expecting to be in a landfill by january 2009 and according to its programming there is not a 2009.  Combo units at walmart are realativly cheap now a days I would recommend picking up a new one.

Setting date and time on a Mitsubishi VCR


My Solution for Mitsubishi HS-U500 VCR setting the date for 2008 and beyond:
I had same problem with this old unit as everyone else has.  Since the year really doesn't matter (except maybe when you're setting to tape near a new year), here's how to get the day and dates correct:
On the remote, push Menu button, then select "First time setup", then select "Set the Clock", then select the month.  Now, start adjusting the YEAR and watch how the "days" change with the years.  Adjust the years so that the "Day" (Monday, Tuesday, etc.) matches the date (1,2, 22, 23, 28, etc.) in the month.  Then cycle thru the rest of the items and get out by hitting menu button again.  
That's it!  That's my quicky solution.  Caveat: This may not be permanent with leap years and the like, so you may need to check it from time to time to make sure the days match up with the dates.  But you can do this when you go to set up for timed taping.  Hope that "FIXes" it for "Ya"!
