Re: programming a vcr

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?

Re: programming a vcr

"when I press menu on the remote the tv screen goes blank. It is a black screen."

From other posts on this site, just unplug it, wait a minute or so, and plug it back in. I haven't done this yet, but I will go to my parents' place and try it with their vcr.

zzoo :

"when i program the vcr i turn off the pow. it doesnt record and if i leave the pow on it still wont work. the vcr has no manual so i am doing it the same as my old vcr"

No, this vcr is not like almost every other vcr in the world. To start recording you have to press the 'Timer' button near the bottom of the remote.

How do I program this VCR for a daily program M-F?

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.

The timer used to work with analog cable TV but it does work with our cogeco digital cable TV. When the timer goes on, the little red VCR icon vanishes which means we are recording a blank, blue screen....

Some TV's output the signals for recording in different ways. It depends on how the VCR is connected to the TV. Have a look around the TV's menu or the instruction manual to see if has a setting for outputting signals to VCR's.

Setting the clock/time

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.

No Signal

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.
