The rubber parts in VCR's don't do so well just sitting unused. Kind of like how the tires on your car can develop flat spots whe it sits a long time. It probably needs a belt job.

How to record on vcr/dvd combo I set the timer program to record on the vcr but nothing happen, I can record by hitting the record button, but unable to get the timer to work. I received the vcr/dvd combo...

First make sure the internal clock is setup correctly observing am/pm. Then try recording something so you can watch the operation to see if it works. Make sure you have a tape you can record on and also make sure the write protect tab has not been removed from the front lower corner of the tape. Good Luck! I hope you now have success!

Timer recording, more than 1 show

I have no solution how to fix it. My idea is . Use the One-touch timer Recording (OTR) on page 27.
If your manual is the same as mine. My VCR recorder is broken.

1. Is the VCR coming on in the timed mode and recording? Make an experiment- set up a timed record for just a few minutes in advance. Have a tape in the machine- then wait a few minutes & see if it indeed comes on and records. This should for sure help you diagnose your problem.

Note: When a timed record is set up, some VCRs must be turned off, or a particular button pushed to activate the timed record mode, where it will wait for the specified time and come on by itself..

2. Video source set correctly? If all you get is a blue screen, or a moment of snow, then the timed recording is happening, but there is no signal present.

Vcr timed recordings

I'd be pretty certain that every VCR made these days (and of the last 10-15+ years) can be set to do a timed recording. They can be set for a one time recording, weekly or daily record. Whether used with a cable/satellite box, or outside antenna, you must ensure proper hookup. I'm not real familiar with recent cable/sat receiver boxes, but older ones had to be set to the channel you wanted to record, as the VCR will only see that channel. On older cable (no cable box) & outdoor antenna systems, a VCR could tune in and record any channel, while you watched another one. Anyway, check the capability of the cable/sat box, and follow suggested hookup. You will likely need to set the box to the channel you want to record before you retire for the night.
