Possible fault within the memory to the processor as the TIMER settings does not register. Erase all the settings if there were set earlier and then swtich off power on the set for few hours. Now switch on and set the TIMER, make sure there is no power interuptions , fault in the PLUG point or a power supply related issue. If so the fault is within and might need some professional help to remove , check and rectify.

Unable to operate recorder at all.

When you are turning the recorder on it is blocking the signal for cable going to the TV. Your TV will need to be on channel 3 or 4 depending on what the dvd/vcr player channel output is set to. This is why your tv is asking you to re-scan. It is losing the video signal because the dvd/vcr is taking over. The reason why the vcr with the button on the remote is because the vcr button is changing the function of the buttons on the remote to vcr. Even though the dvd/vcr is one unit they still will act like two seperate components independent of each other. They have seperate power buttons and the dvd player part may need to be hooked up seperately with rca cables to work.

I had d problem where mi dvd was unable 2 eject cuz it was locked, so i uplugged it den pluggd it bak n held d power button and it suddenli went off as i was holdin d button n now it doesnt wanna ***...

Normally when the VCR is plugged in, the display should blink. If not, it could be broken. Since I am not sure about this model, do an experiment. Unplug the unit. Wait for a few minutes. Plug it back in and insert a video cassette. If it powers up and the display turns on, VCR should be OK. The unit may be reset to factory default and the remote might be set to different code. The remote can be reset to factory setting by removing the battery for a few minutes.

Turn off progressive scan mode

If you set progressive scant On by accident,you must reset the unit. Remove any disc from the unit and close the disc tray. See that "disc" is displayed on the display window. Now press STOP and hold it for more than 5 seconds before releasing it. The video output will be restored to the standard setting and picture will once again be visible on a conventional analog TV or monitor.
