    In my opinion no refund should be issued since the problem has been explained. Sorry I got a little anoyed there.




    1. To record a TV channel using this VCR, you will need to have a Cable/Satellite box connected to the player. (Important)
    2. Mutiple channel timer recordings using the VCR is NOT possible as the VCR will only record the current channel selected on the cable/satellite box .
    3. You will need to leave your cable/satellite box ON and tuned to the correct channel for proper recording to occur.

    Here it is ones again

    -You can only record the channel which is turned on in the cable box / satteli box or other device where the show is coming from

    -YOU CAN NOT PROGRAM CHANNELS INTO THE PLAYER

Sony dvd/video recorder turns on, says L2 then cuts off..what's the problem


Hit the input select on either your remote or behind the flap on the front of the unit. It might be turned off cause nothings plugged in to the L2 channel. I believe you should have an L1, L2 and L3 channel. I'm almost positive L2 is an auxiliary channel and not an error code but u could be wrong

Can't get rid off L2 message on the recorder.


If I'm understanding this as what I think it is - that's not an error message at all! It's the input your recorder is currently set on (I'm talking about the "L2" shown in the right side of the LED display when the unit is powered on, where the channel number would usually be.) In order to change that, you have to open the bottom flap on the front of the machine (or slide open the remote bottom for the record controls to be exposed,) and press the "Input Select" button twice until it cycles through L3 and ends on whatever channel you last left it on - I think it defaults to 100 if the power has been interrupted. When you press this button after that, it would cycle through "L1", "L2", "L3", and the channel input (or coaxial cable input, to be exact), as expected. I know of no other "L2" message you might be speaking of. If I'm incorrect on this, I apologize. But I hope I'm not and that this simple issue is all that is causing you a headache! Good luck! And by the way, "L1,2, & 3" are the RCA/S-Video inputs on the back (L1 and L3) and on the front (L2) of your machine for various things you might plug in (video cameras, etc.) Note: For L1 and L3 ONLY, you have to go into setup to select whether you will be using the RCA yellow or S-Video jack on the back of the machine for the video of that particular input (with no bearing on the RCA audio jacks for that particular input - they're always used...) - the front L2 input evidently selects on its own between S-Video and the RCA yellow plug, based on which plug has something plugged in. I haven't tested to see which it will select if they are both occupied with a plug on L2. I don't mean to treat you like an idiot -- please don't take it that way - but I don't know how much you know about electronics, and IF I'm right about this whole thing, then I'm sort of assuming you aren't too familiar with them. In either case, please know that I mean well, and any information that you already know, just overlook. Thanks, and again, good luck!

I cannot record from tv ? how do you get the channel on that you want to record ? i can dub, play tapes or dvd's, but can't record ?


This model does not have a tuner so you will not be able to record off of tv unless you run your cable box or dish satellite's audio and video outputs through the dvd recorder's front or back inputs(L1 or L2) and record from those sources. Even then the cable box or satellite box would have to be tuned to the channel that you want to record. If you choose to do this you must go to your on screen menu and under setup/general settings/video/video input you will need to select the video input source(L1,rear or L2, front).

Can't get to recorded programs


Check and make sure you have the DVD Recorder hooked up to the TV. I think you have the Cable box or Satellite hooked up or else you could not record. So there is a second set of outputs on the back of your DVD Recorder, Buy a set of RCA jacks and plug them into the Yellow,White, Red Plugs of your DVD Recorder, Then plug the other end into your TV in either L1 or L2 inputs, whichever ones are free.

Channel selection


L1 and L2 are just line inputs. This unit does not have a tuner so there are no channels to select.
It requires you to be connected to a TV broadcast via a cable or satellite tuner box... and then would only record what ever channel you were viewing. The DVD is a player only.
It sounds like you should have purchased a DVD Recorder or a DVD/VCR Recorder. The players normally do not have a tuner. A Recorder should have an built-in digital tuner. Some also have the old NTSC tuner and may also have a QAM tuner.

Dvd/vcr combo


I'l make sure, but I beleave L1 and L2 are inputs. You need to select the one where the show comes from, Its it coming from the L1 connector or L2.

Your device doesn't have a tuner input jack. To record TV programs on your DVD/VCR, you need to connect this DVD/VCR to an external tuner device (e.g., set top box, cable box or satellite receiver) that has audio/video output jacks.

Il confirm this and reply to you in a moment.
