The VCR may need to be OFF (or in standby mode) when the timed program begins for the timer to take effect.

MY RCA VCR - TIMER LIGHT ALWAYS FLASHES. WHEN i TRY TO RECORD OR TURN OFF VCR IT EJECTS TAPE.


If it plays a tape OK, then it could be that you have a timer set. In which case clear it! Or that you are using a blank tape where the slot at the back is open. If you are using a blank tape which is good and it still ejects the tape after setting the recording. Then it's likely the recording tab sensor - that detects the slot at the back of the tape - is either bent or broken.

VCR won't record, just ejects tape


You have not mentioned the make and model number of the vcr. Any way the problem is due to end sensor or related circuit. End sensors are photo diods which you can check the shorting with a multy meter.

Would like to tape from tv.


this should help jar your memory some....if your vcr is set/tuned to ch 3...and tv is set to ch 3....cable/dish box is your ch selector (tune to any ch u wish) put a blank tape in press record if you want to record....(you are not home, you must set the timer on the vcr /menu/timer recording settings)...make sure the cable box is set to the ch you wish to record...or else you will miss your recording you want.

Pre-Set Timer program not recording


Just a hunch, but did you check the clock settings after the time change?

VCR ejects blank tape only


It sounds like the cassette is not releasing the tape so the machine can put it around the heads. This could damage the machine. Don't use it. A two dollar tape is not worth damaging your vcr. Throw it away.

Recording


Coax out from box into cable in on VCR. Coax out from VCR to Cable in on TV. Set TV and VCR to ch 3. Put in blank tape. Start show on DVR and hit record on VCR. Hope that works for you.

Won't timer record


- Does it have a tape inserted?
- Is the clock set?
- Is VCR off? (has to be off to be in timer mode for many VCRs)
- Is it recording but just plays back blank or does it not even start?
- If recording blank, make sure you are giving it a signal (Is your monitor hooked to the VCR output?)
- If timer doesn't start double check timer settings - they can be very tricky.

Toshiba M674 Lost Remote can't change tape speed


Is this an older VCR? If you can set the timer on the VCR itself
like on an older model you can set the timer and set it to record
in another speed. But if you can't do this. You are stuck at
recording in sp. If you can set the timer, if you make just
one mistake it may not come on at all. That's why vcrs
are not as reliable as dvrs. if you don't want to miss a show
diffinatly make sure you re at home and see it come on
like fill up the whole tape and put the show on the end of the tape. like a 2 hour movie comes on a 8pm-10pm set the
timer at ep speed to come on at 4:05pm- 10:05pm and put a 2 hour tape in it. in ep it will record for 6 hours. tape will stop
automatically so you will record it, and it will be on the tape
at the end. that's the way i do it. if I'm not going to be at home
if i really don't want to miss a show at all. because when you set the timer it still might not come on if you see it on you know
its going to record it.
note its cheaper to just buy a new vcr than buying a $72 remote.
you might as well do that if it is a newer model.

I bought an older model vcr in a thrift store for $10 and it worked good for a year for recording shows. I got lucky I guess.
it didn't have a remote I use the timer to set the ep speed
to record.
