    We have two Mitsubishi HS-U500 VCRs and they both have the same problem. The date will not set after 2007. Does you have a solution?

My Solution for Mitsubishi HS-U500 VCR setting the date for 2008 and beyond:
I had same problem with this old unit as everyone else has.  Since the year really doesn't matter (except maybe when you're setting to tape near a new year), here's how to get the day and dates correct:
On the remote, push Menu button, then select "First time setup", then select "Set the Clock", then select the month.  Now, start adjusting the YEAR and watch how the "days" change with the years.  Adjust the years so that the "Day" (Monday, Tuesday, etc.) matches the date (1,2, 22, 23, 28, etc.) in the month.  Then cycle thru the rest of the items and get out by hitting menu button again.  
That's it!  That's my quicky solution.  Caveat: This may not be permanent with leap years and the like, so you may need to check it from time to time to make sure the days match up with the dates.  But you can do this when you go to set up for timed taping.  Hope that "FIXes" it for "Ya"!

I have a reconditioned VCR HS-521V(IR) and I want to set the date but the year ends at 2009. can I change this date.?


Unfortunately no! the vcr has a built in calender that is limited to the year 2009 that was programmed at the factory. The only way to change this, is reprogramming it with specially equipment.

How do i record a show onto a tape?


lets say you are hooked up correctly (cable to VCR in (from cable/sat box) & cable to TV from VCR out) and the VCR is set to Ch 3,, (PLEASE NOTE THE TV MUST BE ON CH 3)

program a recording
the VCR clock / date must be set and not flashing 12:00
then you go to menu, program a recording by imputing the start time / end time of the show and the date it will be recorded and Ch 3...(you might have to set your cable box for the same date/time as the VCR or manually turn to that ch you wish to record that morning or before you go to bed) put a new tape in the machine....

manual recording
a show,game or special comes on and you sitting and want to watch and record and even edit (no commercials) put tape in... press record button get the remote so you can pause (on commercials) and press pause again to resume recording

I have a Zenith DVD/VCR and I am recording a tape


unless the security camera has a setting for recording the date stamp you probably can't. The camera probably has a setup tab to enable embedding the date stamp on the video.

Can no set date on VCR past 2008


dig around for old calendars or maybe the internet. compare dates. like for example. (my birhtay) july 12 in 1998 was a sunday. in 2009 july 12 was also a sunday. so u know that all dates in 2009 will line up with 1998. so in setting the vcr, make like its 98.

Have you set up the VCR on initial installation correctly!!
Remember correct date, day and time am/pm must be set firstly before any timed recordings can be done properly.

Sony VCR date only goes up 2006


Goggle year with same dates as the year you want. It'll show up.
For example if you can't get 2009, then you can set it to 1998. Same starting day, and all other dates will be identical.
