Question about Philips DVDR3435V/37 DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

VCR won't record at a set time

My Philips DVR/VCR DVP3150V/37 no longer records a VCR at a programmed time, and it used to. It will record if I'm there to push "record," but not at a set time. It's just out of warranty, of course.  Is there something I can do OR  is it worth taking it for repair?

    Thanks, I checked that when it first went wrong and I was still trying to set up a program to record.  Time/date was and is set right.

Check that the clock on the machine is set to the correct time and date. Check am/pm.

This problem is usually caused by incorrect time & date.

This unit doesn't have a tuner of any sort. Even on the few DVR/DVD recorders that have tuners, the external composite video inputs do not connect to the tuner. To record from the L1 or L2 inputs, you must be using a set-top box (cable, satellite, or digital-to-analog converter for OTA signals) or another video source (video camera or a vcr). Most TVs do not have video output capabilities. If you have one of those, follow the directions for recording from set-top boxes below.

Turn on and set the source to the channel that you wish to record for any set-top box. Then make sure that the set-top box is left on and at the correct channel after you finish setting the frequency, speed and length of time for the recording. Note: if the set-top box is turned off, your recorder will still record the blank video and audio.
What source do you have connected to the VCR?

To record from a video camera or a VCR, set that source to play back at the desired time point. This is best done without the timer. Just start recording and then the playback.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with your video source for more support.

(My OTA tuner has a energy-saver option that turns off the unit when there is no activity for a while. Since I usually record when I'm either asleep or away from home, I had to disable the feature to get the correct recordings.)

Seems the DVD is only a player, not a recorder. If the manual did not explane how to do it most likely it will not.

Where can i find the volume on the remote for dvp3150v/37


Your DVD/VCR player does not have a volume but your TV will control the volume for it. If you do not hear any thing is because you did not hook up the TV right.

I have a Toshiba VCR w522 and would like to record a program previously recorded from a DVR. Is it possible?


If the vcr has two scarts connect the DVR player to one and select that imput. Watch the program using the the other scart connected to the TV. Press record on the vcr and then start the DVR player going. If it doesn't have two scarts use the front panel jacks to connect the DVR player.
The only time you won't be able to record a program is if somekind of anti-copy system is employed.

I'm thinking of buying this VCR/DVR combo - Toshiba DVR670 -- but first I want to know if you can program the VCR recording timer using time span information -- not just those codes for programs you find...


Usually, depending on the source, or channel, timer recording can be performed on a VCR; even this model.

The short answer is YES - you can record cable times or set manual scheduled recordings on this VCR. It depends on the channel(s) available in your area, and/or the source (such as cable receivers/set top boxes, etc.) which are intended to be recorded.

I found a loose part in the VCR bay I'd like to reinstall. Part #T5B


I found that part #T5B was on the bottom of the VCR tape tray on the right side of the VCR tape bay opening and was spring activated by inserting the tape to allow the tray to retract into the player mechanism. Without a tape installed, part T5B prevents the tape carriage from retracting.
However, I still couldn't get the whole mechanism timed properly, and gears were skipping teeth, the mechanism was still binding, and shutting the power for the whole player down. Therefore, I removed the rubber drive belt that operated the VCR tray insertion/ retraction process, and disabled the VCR side from operating at all. This allowed the power to remain on and allow the DVD side to work properly.
This worked only for the Phillips DVP3150V/37. I cannot say for certain if other Phillips players are the same.
