SOURCE: VCR will not record (PV-V4624S)
SET YOUR TO RF LEVEL " LOW" OR YOUR CABLE CONNECTION IS WRONG CHECK IT.IF THE PROBLEM REMAINS, CHECK IT ON STANDARD DEFINITION TV FOR RECORDING.IF THE PROGRAM RECORDS OK THEN IT ID NOT COMPITIBLE FOR DIGITAL SIGNALS. BUT IF NO RECORDINGS PERFORM CHECK THE VIDEO HEAD CLOGGINGS OR MAY BE MAIN "IC" PROBLEM.

If no menu, unplug, and let it set a few minutes. Replug and the on-screen menu should appear. Reset the set-up (date, etc). I had the same experience as one of the other posters with JVC customer service telling me the menu button on the remote was malfunctioning, and I should purchase a new remote from them.
After you input your programming, be sure to hit the Timer button on your remote. If you want to change tapes or playback, you will need to hit the Timer button again (take it off Timer) for access to your VCR. Be sure to reset it to Timer afterwards, or you will not be able to record.

Your VCR does not have a digital tuner. If using an antenna or basic cable, you must decode the digital signal through the D/A converter first, then send the signal via the RF cable (Screw -on ) or Audio/Video RCA to the VCR. You will have to manually press record. My guess is that you were used to programming and leaving it. So, if you are/were using your VCR as a tuner to schedule recordings, it is no longer a valid option. If you have a cable or satellite box with a DVR, this is the way to go. I am not sure if anyone offers a VCR with a digital tuner. Google and discover. Unfortunately all those hours (years in some cases) we spent learning how to program our VCRs is now in vain.
