Rebooting, (Unplugging the power cord for a few minutes, then reconnecting ) will allow you to bring up the menu. The JVC factory tech said the the menu button is bad and the remote needs to be replaced. This doesn't make sense to me; since the button works after you reboot. I believe that there is a glitch i0n the programing. Any other ideas as to the cause?
How can t I get the pop up screen when I apply menu. When I press menu nothing appends. I have the illico box for HD and had the videotron tech install it so I can recorded but since the menu does not work I cannot set the time or anything else on it.

Most users will want to store VCR codes under the VCR button, Cable codes under CBL, etc. If you want to store a VCR code under CBL, etc., first follow the procedure for Direct Code Entry and press CBL in step 2 of Direct Code Entry, then enter ANY VCR code in step 3 of Direct Code Entry. Then follow the steps above for Code Search.
The option should come up when you set a recording. The menu screen should tell you which button to press. Or you might need to use the arrow keys to get the point and press enter. Though I see that your model does not have a remote. This will make it very difficult to change it. I suggest you get a replacement remote or universal one.

RCA Codes for VCR
There should be a menu button on the remote which will get you into the various advanced programming functions. Many/most of the late VCRs cannot be programmed, time set with the buttons on the VCR itself.
Unplug the unit for 24 hours or more, you should be fine after that. No not just turn off, UNPLUG from the wall. Then reset the time and all the stuff should come bacK fine. If it does not then buy a new VCR because to fix this one would require a new microprocessor IC, and that would cost you double on what the VCR cost.
