You stated having the unit unplugged in your problem description so you did do a reset already and that seems to have caused your problem. Unplugging the machine will probably not resolve your issue then. What does seem to be happening is corruption in the unit's firmware that is crashing it causing it to go into stand-by. Unfortunately I doubt there is any software on the Internet that will allow you to re-flash the machine's firmware. Unless you still have warranty available you will either have to live with it, replace the unit's main board (doubt a replacement can easily be found), or replace it with something new.

SOURCE: Can't switch from AV2 to AV1 with Samsung DVD-VR375 DVD Recorder / VCR Combo

To be able to select AV1, you have to first go into the setup menu and set the control set top box setting to OFF. I think you go to the menu >> setup >> features >> set top box control >> select OFF. Note that this has the side effect of erasing any previously stored timer settings.

I'm thinking of buying this VCR/DVR combo - Toshiba DVR670 -- but first I want to know if you can program the VCR recording timer using time span information -- not just those codes for programs you find...

Usually, depending on the source, or channel, timer recording can be performed on a VCR; even this model.

The short answer is YES - you can record cable times or set manual scheduled recordings on this VCR. It depends on the channel(s) available in your area, and/or the source (such as cable receivers/set top boxes, etc.) which are intended to be recorded.

VHS won't work

Had the same problem on my JVC vcr/dvd combo unit.
You need to turn off the timer function. I did this by making sure my remote was in the "VHS" mode...turn the swith from TV to the right (found on the remote in the upper left then hit the "vcr" button. Then point the remote at the VCR unit and hit the No. 4 button (timer turns off). Your unit should not have the red timer displayed and you should be able to play your tapes okay.

Hope this helps.

Need a little help

Greetings dexter11,

It appears that there is a gap in the recent technologies. It appears most of the VCR/DVD-R combo's you can purchase will not allow you to "timer record". There are a few from a few manufactures that do allow this but they are the more expensive units with integrated digital tuners.

Now I know you said you were not interested in TIVO because of the lack of a home phone line, but if you have an internet connection it will allow you to use your wireless network to receive programing updates as well.

Happy Recording.
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Magnovox MWR20V6 will not begin recording when it should.

This is more a work-around than a solution, as the unit is failing to function normally; however, having the identical problem I observed that the unit is failing to power on at 2:00 minutes before beginning recording, a necessary step to record to DVD.

My work-around is the following:

1) Set up the timer, inputting necessary date, time, etc. as normal. With the unit still powered on, start the timed recording mode by pressing timer set, as normal. You will see the red clock icon and the DVD logo iluminate on the VFD.

2) Press the Standby-On power button. This will power the unit on in VCR mode. You should at this time be unable to switch from VCR to DVD mode since the DVD is still in timer mode. LEAVE THE UNIT POWERED ON in this manner. The timer will function and the DVD will record normally.

I have no clue why my unit suddenly forgot how to power up on its own in order to record to DVD. If anyone has an answer for that one please post!

Panasonic units are pretty nice and easy. They also have a DVD recorder/VCR combo unit as well, if you wanted it.

This is the model number for the DVD-R/VCR unit: DMR-EZ47.

Sylvania SRD4900 DVD/VCR combo problem

Hi I am Temperance MI and I see this mode in my shop often, does any onscreen menu come up when using the remote and
going into menu? If not maybe the remote is bad, common just
a loose battery lead, If you are able to go into menu, and set the
clock, but unable to set timer record, look closely at you recordable tape to make sure on the left bottom from corner the
the recording tab is in place, You can place scotch tape over this hole of existing tab to ensure it will go into record. Finally
if it wont go into record when you try to use OTR, you
make a problem with the record ready switch in the VCR section. Joe . East Electronics, Temperance MI
