If you mean that when the recorder is paused during recording or playback, then it shuts down after being left awhile. Then I'm afraid the asnswer must be no.
The reason is because it's the recorder protecting itself and the tape from risk of damage. As when the tape is laced up, the head spinning at high speed can cause static electricity, plus the general risk that the tape might get entangled. The timer is all part of the micro controller in any case, which is the "brains" of the VCR.

However if the VCR is shutting itself eratic, then there's some kind of fault.

The timer will not shut off and did not record the show as it was set up.

I cleared up the problem by getting back into the setup. It is now corrected. Thank you for your interest.

You may already know this, but you must push the timer button and the one on it's left, marked in red at the same time to set, and then the timer light comes on. and the unit shuts off. I just bought one with no manual, so I'm working my way through it.

How to set the vcr to record

Hi I'm not familiar with your model in particular, but normally there will be a timer button on the remote that you must press, or you must turn the vcr off after programming it for the timer recordings to be made. There should be a timer indicator on the front, either a symbol or a red light depending on the age of the vcr. If you program it, then press the timer button on the remote, the timer light should be on and the vcr will shut itself off, if it is the other type, then the timer indicator should stay lit when you shut off the machine. If that light is on, then your timer recordings should work. Hope this helps, good luck!
