    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 an old sanyo analog vcr and I need to set the time and date

You will need the remote for that. Select the main menu, then look around for time setting option. You will probably have to use either the arrow keys or numbers on the keypad of the remote to set the date. Some models will have an OK button to set the date/time on each part. If you see an auto setting for the clock time, set it to off, as broadcasters no longer set a time out for analogue models.

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.

Can the date chip be updated in a mitsubishi VCR?

You can work around the problem. Check old calendars for a year where the days and dates correspond to the 2010 calendar. Program that year in your VCR and it will allow you to program recording times. The year 2004 will work.

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.

RCA model DRC8335 Loosing the date and time

That will be a problem from the text side of the broadcast, the clock is set from the text transmission, ( in other words a problem from the transmitter ) possibly due to digital switchover or work on the transmitters. One possible solution would be to turn off auto clock setting, and/or auto summer time adjustment.

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.
