Question about Symphonic Televison & Video

1 Answer

My tv/vcr won't respond when I press the power button. I've check the plug, which seemed fine. Also there's a button that reads "rec/otr", and a gold L-shaped line beneath, which points to a little light. That light is flashing. What's wrong with it?

Step 2: Press and hold the "CODE SEARCH" or "SETUP" button on the remote until the indicator light turns on, then release.
Step 3: Press and release the button for the device you are programming (VCR, DVD, TV etc.). For AUX, press AUX button, then the device button you are assigning to AUX. The indicator light will blink then remain lit.
Step 4: Enter the three-digit or four-digit code (depending on your GE remote model) for your device using the number buttons. After your code is entered the indicator light will turn off.
Step 5: Aim the remote at the device you want to control and press the POWER button. Your device should turn off. If your equipment does not respond to the first code listed in the documentation, repeat steps with the next code. If the device responds correctly to other functions like Volume or Program up/down, no further programming is required.
If you can't find a working code for your device or your brand is not listed try the "Code Search" method described below.

Step 2: Press and hold "CODE SEARCH" or "SETUP" until the light turns on, then release.

Step 4: Press and release the "POWER" button until your device turns off. Wait at least two seconds between each time you press "POWER". Note that you may have to press "POWER" up to 250 times!
Step 5: When your device turns off press the "ENTER" or "SAVE" button. The indicator light will turn off. Check other functions to see if your code is correct.

Vcr not responding to remote


If hooked up right the play button should work, if on wrong channel and no switch on rear to select 3 or 4 it might be the remote.

The remote can itself be tested--all shops have a tester--point remote at it and press any button and tester will react or not.

Many digital cameras can also be used in the same way in a VERY dark room. Point remote at the powered up camera and look for a tiny flash on the camera display itself when pointed at the camera and buttons pressed.

Test the remote first.

What does otr do?


OTR stands for One Touch Record. On the remote or VCR will be a button with it on, set the channel you want to record and press it. The VCR will start recording. If you press it again it will add a time often in jumps of 30 minutes each time it is pressed.

This morning while trying to copy from vhs to dvd I kept getting an on screen message OTR Pause....record. What is OTR as the tape did not copy this is model DRC832ON


OTR is one-touch recording on most of my VCR/DVD burners where you set the length of time to record from the tv. In my manual it is the Express Record feature. Press the REC button several times to advance the record time by 30 minutes. In your case it might refer to On Timed Record.

Use the COPY button on the front of the unit when the tape you want to record is in the VCR and a blank DVD is in the DVD tray. If you have the A/B Edits set, only the A/B editted sections will copy. (Copy protected tapes and DVDs can't be copied.) (Or the timed transfer described below)

Copying DVDs to VCR tapes can be done in a timed record mode. You can either use Menu > Disc > Copy Disc then press OK or Menu > Timers > Set Transfer and press OK. Then press Info to name the timed event followed by Done and OK, if desired. Press OK to highlight Copy From/To and make sure to select the correct source and destination and press OK. Next set the day and time that you want the transfer to take place (a couple of steps, press OK between them and when done). Then adjust the quality if needed and press OK. Finally highlight Keep Timer and press OK again. Make sure the correct tape and DVD are in place for the timed event.

Depending on what you set the unit for, I'd look for signs of power failures (which mess up most timed record functions). Then I'd double-check the time you set it to transfer and the A/B edits function. (A/B edits lets you grab small clips from an Indexed tape. Either index the tape by playing it and pressing the Insert A/B edit button (on the VCR/DVD, possibly on the remote) or delete A/B edits.)

I hope this helps.

I pushed the otr button by mistake and now I can not stop it from recording or turn off the vcr.


OTR stands for one touch record, each press of the button will increase the recording time. However if you keep pressing the button it should go back to "0" and stop!

Set the clock on my Panasonic NV-J11 HQ VCR


Hey there - I've got the exact same model VCR; although I've lost the manual as well, I've been using it for so long that I

can usually remember it all from heart:

To set the clock

1. Open the flip-down lid, push [CLOCK] button.
For each of the steps below, use the white-labeled [+] and [-] tracking buttons to increase/decrease each number.
2. Two digits should be blinking - this is the year (last two digits only) - adjust and push [NEXT] when done.
3. Two digits, with a "D" next to them should now be flashing - this is the month (1=January thru 12=December), adjust and push [NEXT] when done.
4. Two digits, with a "M" next to them should now be flashing - this is the day-of-month (1..31), adjust and push [NEXT] when done.
5. The time should now be displayed, with hours flashing - adjust and push [NEXT] when done.
6. The minutes of the time should now be flashing - adjust. When you push [NEXT], this will complete the date-setting and start the seconds-of-the-minute off at zero - handy for synchronising to an external time source (I recommend using the

Teletext broadcast clock if available - you'll usually find your recordings will start right-on time when you do this, depending on your TV station).
7. If you make an error at any step above, push [CLOCK] to exit clock-setting mode and start again.

Depending on your model of VCR - the clock may either persist through power failures (backup battery) or may have to be reset next time power is lost. Mine doesn't seem to have a backup battery.

To program the VCR for timer-recording: There are two modes, Timer Record (start and finish recording at arbitrary times in the future), and OTR ("One Touch Recording", start recording right now and finish at a set time in the future).

*** Timer recording ***
There are eight programme slots (numbered 1-8 on the display), each programme slot has an individual channel and start/finish time associated with it. Programmes can be scheduled up to 1 month in the future.

Push [PROG/CHECK] to cycle through each slot (after the eighth slot, it will return back to normal operating mode).

When you want to set a programme, push [PROG/CHECK] until you find an empty slot (date/time will be all dashes). Then do the following:

1. Channel should be flashing - set this using white-labeled [+]/[-] tracking buttons and push [NEXT] when done.
2. Date should be flashing (defaults to today), use [+]/[-] to adjust starting date and push [NEXT] when done.
3. Set the starting time ("ON" should be lit next to time) (defaults to now), use [+]/[-] to adjust starting time and push [NEXT] when done.
4. Set the finishing time ("OFF" should be lit next to time) (defaults to starting time), use [+]/[-] to adjust and push [NEXT] to complete the setting of this programme. After this, you'll be returned to the start of setting the next programme (the unit will also beep five times to confirm you have a valid programme set).

If you make an error (or you need to clear a programme slot that already has a programme set), hold down the [-] and [+] buttons for three seconds until the starting time/date becomes all dashes.

When you're done with setting your programme(s), keep pressing [PROG/CHECK] until you exit into normal operating mode, then push the [TIMER REC] button to activate the timer; this will put the VCR into timer standby mode, and the orange clock icon should be lit solidly on the display. There should also be a number (1..8) lit for each programme that has been set, but is still yet to run. Make sure you have the tape inserted and positioned in the right place when you do this.

After timer standby mode is activated, you can then push [PROG/CHECK] to review the individual programme slots; each push of [PROG/CHECK] will cycle through each slot (the display will time out in 10-15 secs).

To get out of timer standby mode (either when after the programmes have run or if you've made an error), push [TIMER REC] again - this will return you to normal operating mode (where you can fix errors if need be). Programmes that have run to completion should be automatically be cleared.


*** OTR (One Touch Recording) ***

This will start the tape recording immediately (good for when you have an unexpected distraction or sudden change of plans) and have it stop at a later preset time. The OTR mode only has one programme slot, unlike timer record.

1. Insert tape, have it positioned where you want to record from. Set the channel to the one you want to record from.
2. Open the flip-down lid, look at the bottom-right corner of the array of buttons inside.
3. Push the green-labeled [OTR +] button; this will start the tape recording instantly (the red "OTR" indicator should be lit on the display).
4. The stop time should also be displayed - use the [OTR -] and [OTR +] to adjust the stop time. When you're done, that's all you need to do (you can adjust it any time later).

To abort OTR mode (ie. if you start it by mistake, or want to stop the recording early), push the main [VTR] button to stop the recording. Yes, that's right - turn the whole thing off, it'll leave you in standby mode.



Hope this helps!

Can't record a program with videotape


Try setting the clock again paying close attention to AM and PM settings as well as everything else. REC/OTR is for recording "on the spot". Make sure unit is in proper mode with the DVD/VCR button. Customer service number is usually on a sticker on these units.
