Go to tv menu, find the "autoprogramming" option and select it. It will scan all available channels. You can then pick and stay on your channel to record. Make sure you can view program through vcr channel before hitting record.

If using a DTV converter to connect to the VCR to record channels then follow the steps given below:
(i)You must have the VCR tuned to record on channel 3.
(ii) You must have the VCR connected to output signal of the DTV converter box. In other words, the converter box must be connected between the antenna and the VCR. So, the likely configuration you would use with a coaxial cable is antenna to DTV converter to VCR to TV.
(iii) You must tune the DTV converter to the channel you want to record prior to recording. The VCR won't be able to change channels on the DTV converter.
To determine if the issue is with the VCR or the channel source, try playing any tape in the VCR after tuning to any channel and check if the channel is changing automatically to channel 3.
Furthermore, you may contact the cable service provider to check if the signal transmitted on the channel 7 and 12 are recordable.

The VCR should be on channel 3 or 4 with the switch on the back of the VCR and your TV should be on channel 3 or 4. Do you have other devices connected to the VCR, other than the TV, like a DVD player? It acting like you have other device connected. Do you have more than one record button? Like one on the VCR and one on the remote. If so , try the other record button. If there is more than one input try a different input to the VCR. Has to be a clinch or stuck because maybe a previous device. I hope deep down inside you don't have it preprogrammed to record ch 3

You can tune to 12 or 7 and push record, or you can program the machine to record 12 or 7 to record at a certain time.
Some VCRs allow you to enter the program code for automatic recording.
