Most later model VCRs NEED the original remote to get all the functions. None of the budget models support many of the available features from the front panel of the machine to save money. Universal remotes may support enough of the functions for you to be able to change the speed, but you will have to try them to see, as this feature support varies from brand to brand. They don't replace the original by any means. This problem is a product of the Walmart pricing philosophy. Cheaper is better.

I cannot find my manual what is the speed to record on the vcr for 8 hours


Unfortunately, most VCR recorders/tapes don't have an 8 hour option. It is 2 hours on SP (standard), LP for 4 hours or EP (SLP, depending on the unit) for 6 hours. (The slower recording speed usually gives poorer video quality.)

You would need a non-standard VCR cassette to get 8 hour recording. If you do have a tape that would hold 3 hours at SP, then use an EP setting to get 8 hours of recording on your VCR. I don't think I've seen any tapes that do that recording length even when VCRs were popular.

I wish that I had better news.

I need instruction to set recording for sharp h952 vcr


You need remote to get menu to set the clock then go to timed recording setting. Then you load a new tape, then shut down the vcr and wait for the timer to start the vcr and recording for you.

If you need a manual, google for sharp vcr manual download free from sharp website.

VCR won't record.


When you press record, does the tape eject? if it does, make sure the safety tab is intact. if not, put a piece of scotch tape over the hole. Do you hit the record button on the vcr or a universal remote? On a remote, you may have to hit recort 2 times.

Changing from sp to ep


it will automatically play at the speed the tape was recorded at. but if you want to change record speeds here's how: you should be able to access menu functions from the front of the vcr, if so, put a tape to be recorded into the unit and then set the timer for a couple of minutes.while you are on the timer menu it will ask you for recording speed. set the timer record speed to ep and let it record for two minutes and let it record for the full time untill it stops recording. the record speed will automatically change settings to whatever you used last on timer record.

How to set the tape lenght when recording


on older vcr's there should be a sp/slp or ep button on your remote or vcr. if not when you set a program to record, the option to choose should be there. sp= 2 hrs, ep =6 hrs.

Taping TV shows


You need to have an antenna in (from TV antenna or cable). Set the VCR to that channel and press RECORD. Or use the on screen menu to set up the recording time/channel


You really need to have a manual to find the step by step instructions for your VCR. Go to this website and search
for a VCR manual from Sharp. I was there and did not find the exact manual.Download a couple of ones that have similar model numbers and follow the process.

www.retrevo.com


Or call Sharp and ask them to fax/email you a manual.
