I suggest that you record one month at a time.

I have a Quasar VH6200 VCR. Can it be connected to a new TV and be able to record TV programs. I have connected it but it won't record. What can I do?


I have the same machine and the same problem as you do. Apparently, because this model has a hardwired, built in calendar, it experiences a "Y2K"-like problem and will not record (even manually!) when you either try to program a date that is more recent than 2008, or the machine's present date "hits the wall." The solution is to program a year that is identical to the current year. Example: day and date-wise, 2014 is identical to 1997. So entering the correct month and day, but using 1997 for the year entry will allow normal operation with correct day/date timer operation and the stupid CPU will be none the wiser. As for using this machine with modern HDTVs, there should be no problem as long as the TV has standard analog A/V jacks. For recording the machine would need a source of standard-def video, either basic cable TV or a digital converter box if using over the air signals. BTW, 1998 is a match for 2015, so the above solution will be good for two years. After that, just look up a leap within 1990 to 2008 year that matches 2016.

The year on the "clock


Yes, 2005 and 2011 are identical, the VCR will never know the difference. For future years 2012 and beyond just make sure the year you pick is not a leap year and that the day starts on the same day of the week for both years. The calendars need to have the same days and there are many years like this. Also check to be sure your VCR programming is good before doing a timer recording. You would not want to lose a show due to bad setup. See this link to 2005 and 2011 calendars.:

My vcr will not recognise the year 2010 it goes back to 1990 so I can no longer use the timer to record when I am not there.


All depending on when your unit was manufactured, it might not support the year 2010. You will have to upgrade to a new VCR or DVD player to use the timer record function. Good luck to you!

Magnavox VCR U095 39760450-can not put in 2009 YR to record


I called Magavox and Matt told me they had no information for my very very old vcr. He suggested that I trick the machine and use a date similar to the current calendar. For instance, today is Monday, January 5th. I went back to 2004 and found the same day and date. I programmed my vcr for 30 minutes to test it out and it worked. If you can't beat it, join it. Hope your vcr works too. Happy new year!

Setting date and time on a Mitsubishi VCR


My Solution for Mitsubishi HS-U500 VCR setting the date for 2008 and beyond:
I had same problem with this old unit as everyone else has.  Since the year really doesn't matter (except maybe when you're setting to tape near a new year), here's how to get the day and dates correct:
On the remote, push Menu button, then select "First time setup", then select "Set the Clock", then select the month.  Now, start adjusting the YEAR and watch how the "days" change with the years.  Adjust the years so that the "Day" (Monday, Tuesday, etc.) matches the date (1,2, 22, 23, 28, etc.) in the month.  Then cycle thru the rest of the items and get out by hitting menu button again.  
That's it!  That's my quicky solution.  Caveat: This may not be permanent with leap years and the like, so you may need to check it from time to time to make sure the days match up with the dates.  But you can do this when you go to set up for timed taping.  Hope that "FIXes" it for "Ya"!

Time


Most VCRs of the last 10+ years are programmed via the remote box. If you have the matching remote, there should be a button which brings up an on-screen menu where you can select various functions such as setting the time/date, tape speed, channel programming, and the unattended recording you desire. Take a look here for an online manual: http://www.emersonaudiovideo.com/pdf/om/EWV603.pdf

Emerson DVd with Video Cassette Recorder EWR20V5


Try using 8x and lower DVDs and -R ones; try cleaning with CD cleaning disk and then try recording a few min again. If that doesn't help try unplugging and waiting about 30min then put in disk that was previously recorded and go to last item and play it to end (if 2hr long skip to last skip and then play until it finishes) - now try just recording a few min using the manual DVD record button and see if error comes up again - usually this unplugging somehow resets everything. Hope this helps ya'll.
