Well you said there was a tape with it and that you could see it moving.
But, you have it under Digital Cameras which generally use flash media, nowadays.
Some older camcorders used tape.

I think that the head may be magnetized, or the mechanism for driving it is binding. At any rate, if I were working on it, I wouldn't want to put much effort into fixing it, because tapes were always so troublesome compared to today's flash memory cameras.

Record button does not work I press the record button and ejects the tape


The sensor switch which pushes against the record tab on the tape is either bent out of shape, or broken. Therefore the video recorder thinks that the tape you put in is a pre-recorded or protected tape, thus ejects it.

HOW DO YOU BURN A DVD ON A SONY DVD RECORDER RDR


Make sure your Sony input signal is on L1 or L3 (the inputs in back of recorder) or on L2 which is for inputs for cameras(located in front).Once you get a signal, you're where you need to be. Choose your recording mode for recording speed (pull down the flap on the remote control for this button and also the input button).
Choose from between1 hour and six hours. To archive really important stuff, stick with the first 3 speeds. TV recording can be on 3, 4 or 6 hour mode.
Push the record/pause button once. This will put the recorder into the record/pause mode and then it awaits you pushing it again to start recording immediately. Just pushing record will force the machine into a 3 to five second delay before actually recording anything so you might mess up and miss the first few seconds of your input. Suggest you use a dvr-rw or dvd+rw to practice on.

When your recording is done, just push the pause again. It stops recording but allows you to add more on to the first recording without starting a new chapter if you want. Just continue to release the pause button to continue.
If you are satisfied that you are finished, then push the pause button to stop recording. Wait for the info to be written(flashing message on screen). When it stops, you may play the dvd.
Notice- since the dvd has not been FINALIZED, you may only play it back on this unit without finalizing. It will not play on other dvd players unless you finalize it first.
To finalize, look on remote for the TOOL button. Press it once. Now push DISC INFO once. Use arrow keys and enter button on remote for the following. Scroll down to FINALIZE and press enter.
Use arrow keys to scroll to OK. push the ENTER button. Finalizing should take between 30 seconds and 2 minutes.

Warning- if titles or chapters are to typed in, it must be done BEFORE finalizing. Finalizing afterwards cannot be done.
Erasing can be done in part or all if using an RW+ or RW- disc

Set the clock on my Panasonic NV-J11 HQ VCR


Hey there - I've got the exact same model VCR; although I've lost the manual as well, I've been using it for so long that I

can usually remember it all from heart:

To set the clock

1. Open the flip-down lid, push [CLOCK] button.
For each of the steps below, use the white-labeled [+] and [-] tracking buttons to increase/decrease each number.
2. Two digits should be blinking - this is the year (last two digits only) - adjust and push [NEXT] when done.
3. Two digits, with a "D" next to them should now be flashing - this is the month (1=January thru 12=December), adjust and push [NEXT] when done.
4. Two digits, with a "M" next to them should now be flashing - this is the day-of-month (1..31), adjust and push [NEXT] when done.
5. The time should now be displayed, with hours flashing - adjust and push [NEXT] when done.
6. The minutes of the time should now be flashing - adjust. When you push [NEXT], this will complete the date-setting and start the seconds-of-the-minute off at zero - handy for synchronising to an external time source (I recommend using the

Teletext broadcast clock if available - you'll usually find your recordings will start right-on time when you do this, depending on your TV station).
7. If you make an error at any step above, push [CLOCK] to exit clock-setting mode and start again.

Depending on your model of VCR - the clock may either persist through power failures (backup battery) or may have to be reset next time power is lost. Mine doesn't seem to have a backup battery.

To program the VCR for timer-recording: There are two modes, Timer Record (start and finish recording at arbitrary times in the future), and OTR ("One Touch Recording", start recording right now and finish at a set time in the future).

*** Timer recording ***
There are eight programme slots (numbered 1-8 on the display), each programme slot has an individual channel and start/finish time associated with it. Programmes can be scheduled up to 1 month in the future.

Push [PROG/CHECK] to cycle through each slot (after the eighth slot, it will return back to normal operating mode).

When you want to set a programme, push [PROG/CHECK] until you find an empty slot (date/time will be all dashes). Then do the following:

1. Channel should be flashing - set this using white-labeled [+]/[-] tracking buttons and push [NEXT] when done.
2. Date should be flashing (defaults to today), use [+]/[-] to adjust starting date and push [NEXT] when done.
3. Set the starting time ("ON" should be lit next to time) (defaults to now), use [+]/[-] to adjust starting time and push [NEXT] when done.
4. Set the finishing time ("OFF" should be lit next to time) (defaults to starting time), use [+]/[-] to adjust and push [NEXT] to complete the setting of this programme. After this, you'll be returned to the start of setting the next programme (the unit will also beep five times to confirm you have a valid programme set).

If you make an error (or you need to clear a programme slot that already has a programme set), hold down the [-] and [+] buttons for three seconds until the starting time/date becomes all dashes.

When you're done with setting your programme(s), keep pressing [PROG/CHECK] until you exit into normal operating mode, then push the [TIMER REC] button to activate the timer; this will put the VCR into timer standby mode, and the orange clock icon should be lit solidly on the display. There should also be a number (1..8) lit for each programme that has been set, but is still yet to run. Make sure you have the tape inserted and positioned in the right place when you do this.

After timer standby mode is activated, you can then push [PROG/CHECK] to review the individual programme slots; each push of [PROG/CHECK] will cycle through each slot (the display will time out in 10-15 secs).

To get out of timer standby mode (either when after the programmes have run or if you've made an error), push [TIMER REC] again - this will return you to normal operating mode (where you can fix errors if need be). Programmes that have run to completion should be automatically be cleared.


*** OTR (One Touch Recording) ***

This will start the tape recording immediately (good for when you have an unexpected distraction or sudden change of plans) and have it stop at a later preset time. The OTR mode only has one programme slot, unlike timer record.

1. Insert tape, have it positioned where you want to record from. Set the channel to the one you want to record from.
2. Open the flip-down lid, look at the bottom-right corner of the array of buttons inside.
3. Push the green-labeled [OTR +] button; this will start the tape recording instantly (the red "OTR" indicator should be lit on the display).
4. The stop time should also be displayed - use the [OTR -] and [OTR +] to adjust the stop time. When you're done, that's all you need to do (you can adjust it any time later).

To abort OTR mode (ie. if you start it by mistake, or want to stop the recording early), push the main [VTR] button to stop the recording. Yes, that's right - turn the whole thing off, it'll leave you in standby mode.



Hope this helps!

Dubbling cassette tapes


After looking @ the owner's manual online, I can see why you're confused. Man! It shouldn't that tough. You can always tell when the Chinese translate anything into English. If look you closely enough on pages 18 & 19, whenever the directions refer to "manual recording" one of functions that they don't specify is the recording of 1 tape onto another. The way that this manual was written the writer apparently didn't envision that anyone would want to do tape-to-tape (dubbing) recording.

On pg 18 it says to load a recordable (blank) tape into the B side deck. Easy enough. Next comes the tough to discern part.
In section 2 where it mentions "For Manual Recording and Sound Mixing:" Select the desired source to record or mix. In your case that would be the A deck. Here is where they needed to take a little time and explain that tape-to-tape recording is one of those possibilities. Notice that you'll need to place the B deck in standby. Then select the REC PAUSE/START to start the B deck & then (this is another place where they needed to be more clear) you'll need to simultaneously start (press the play button) the A deck which would be the recording source. In the future just remember that the A deck is the source and the B deck is the destination.

Good luck.

I had the exact same problem; my tape icon was flashing red with a line through it and the recorder would not record, no matter how hard I begged it to. After a full day of frustration, I called the videographer who had used it previously. There is a little trick.

1. Open the exterior tape door with the "Eject" button.
2. Wait, dont touch the tape. The little metal encasement will pop over and open within a few seconds.
3. To properly put the tape in, insert tape, push the little metal door that sais "Push this first".
4. Then push the exterior door closed.

Voila! Thats all there is to it!
