You should set the VCR to the channel which you want to record. It doesn't matter what channel the TV is on. In your case, just turn off the TV.
I making assumptions about your setup. If you can turn on your VCR and TV and watch the channel that you will be recording, then just turn your TV off, and you should be good.
Only caveat, some VCRs must be turned off while waiting for the recording timer to activate (presumably, so as not to interfere with someone actively watching a program).

Have you some experience in opening and repairing Electronic equipments? Or does your husband / partner have any experience?
From what you have described, it seems that one of the belts has snapped or become loose.
Unplug the VCR, opem the bottom cover, and check the belts. If any of them is loose, or snapped, replace.
