Go to menu, timed recording/recording, set the date, the channel to record (usually input or av channel if you are using rca jacks) (channel 4 if you are using coaxil cable) then set the time for the recording to start, the time for the recording to end, then press exit. It should now be all set.

It would seem that your not the first that has problems with the timer recording.
So here`s what i`d like you to do;
Set your timer as you usually would and if recording on disk , use a blank that has`nt been in another machine as the recorder has to format it using it`s own system.
Once the program is done press the "timer set" button on the remote and make sure the unit goes into standby mode, otherwise use the power button to power it down.
In otherwords the unit has to be in standby mode when the selected time comes around.
So if you`re using it in the mean time , make sure to power it down with the timer set or power button.
Let me know how it goes

Have you followed all the steps on p. 30 of the manual. You can download and view the pdf at this link:
If so and there is a problem recording it should give you a specific error number. If your having problems with the one of the steps let me know.

You say that you can not time record a DVD, but can you record a program manually? If you can not record at all, either while using the timer or trying to record manually, then the problem is in the burner portion of the optical assembly, the optical assembly consists of two sections, the playback or reader and the burner or recorder, and they are both included in one assembly. So if the recording side is not working at all then the whole assembly needs to be replaced.
If you are able to record manually, then there is a problem in setting up the different program for the start and end times or the main clock is not set correctly.
