Question about Philips VR550 VHS VCR

1 Answer

Phillips VCR 550/07

I have recently bought the above, but can't figure out how to record more than one item on the same day without coming out of the record set-up screen and going back in.

On my old VCR I could set up many recordings on the same day from the same screen.

Can you do this on the Phillips VCR550/07?

does this make sense?

Calmly and relaxed, read the operator's manual to realize the exact proceedure or one-day, multi-time-setting. Upon reading the context will indicate the component's ability and weather the programing is to be direct component button pressing or through the remote control.

Set up VCR for recording with Satellite TV

You will not be able to record satellite (digital signal) onto a VCR (analog signal) without what is called a scan converter. This is the only way to do it with your current machine. It can be done but the cost of doing it properly will come close to using a different recording method.

I bought the VCR without the remote. I have a universal remote that has been programmed to work with the VCR. However, I can not bring up the record menu. What can I do to record programs without using the...

Sometimes the codes used in the remote are the wrong type for your model VCR. Though functions will work with some codes. It's best to try some of the other codes for GE VCR's and see if that triggers it to life the missing menu.

The sequence should go from the wall to the VCR then the VCR to the RF modulator then from the RF modulator to the TV and this should allow you to record a TV program and watch a DVD at the same time.

I have a Sylvania 6240VE vcr. When I try to rewind a recorded tape, the vcr ejects the video. I was wanting to purchase a dvd/vcr combo, but the reviews for these items are awful. I tried a Magnavox combo....

When you put the player into rewind, is it at the beginning of the tape that it ejects? If so, it may be because you have the machine in timer mode. If you have a pre-recorded tape in a VCR, it will automatically eject the tape because you`ve not to record on a pre-recorded tape. I hope this help, Ian

VCR will not record with new digital cable box

The short and simple solution is to tune the VCR to the channel that the cable box is set to (4), and then tune teh TV to the VCR's output channel (3). If you do this you should be able to see the Cable channel through the VCR tuner and then record. Any other solution would require figuring out how to set both the VCR and the cable box to the same channel, but it sounds as if you have ruled out any possibility of being able to do that.

VCR ejects blank tape only

It sounds like the cassette is not releasing the tape so the machine can put it around the heads. This could damage the machine. Don't use it. A two dollar tape is not worth damaging your vcr. Throw it away.

Change recording speed

The only solution to this problem is to buy a new remote from the manufacturer. Aftermarket remotes that I have looked at: RCA, PHILLIPS, SONY, etc do not have a speed select button for the VCR. (which IMHO is stupid) Come on aftermarket people- it cant be that hard to program a speed select button!

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.
