Perhaps there is some logic problem in the electronics... I'd think this exact kind of defect would be rather rare, obviously not impossible.

I assume from what you are telling me, that the VCR doesn't come on at all when it reaches the set Record on time.

Also, there is often an indicator of some sort which is visible which indicates that a timed record has been set. Does it have one?

If the problem is in the electronics, and not a matter of improper timer setup and related, then a quick trip to an electronics store for a replacement unit is in order. Repair on most electronics, including VCRs is getting pretty economically unfeasible.

Beyond what I've already mentioned, I don't have much in the way of further suggestions. One last thing: I assume a tape is in the VCR, and that this tape doesn't have the record lockout tab missing... doubtful, as many machines would auto eject the tape as safeguard against recording over a "keeper" previously recorded program.

Lost manual. Cannot get HR A591U JVC VCR program to record a future cable tv program. Seems I have tried everything but it does not record as I set up. It will record an existing show by pressing...


Timer Recording JVC VCR HR A591U
Timer recording can be programmed on-screen with
the remote control. The built-in timer allows automatic
unattended recording of up to 8 programs within 1
month.

EXAMPLE: Program a timer recording for the 26th day,
channel 125 (CATV), 11:00 - 11:30 PM on timer program
number 1 (Tape speed: EP).

When a TV is connected with an audio/video cable, turn the
TV and this VCR on and select the video input mode on the
TV.


• After timer recording is completed, the VCR turns off
automatically.
• You can program the timer recording while a regular
recording is in progress; the menu screens will not be
recorded.
• The timer recording will start at 20 seconds before the time
you predetermined.

Press MENU on the Remote.
Check the “TIMER REC SET”
option is selected, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select one of
the program lines, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select the
date, then press ENTER.

Set the start time, end time,
channel and tape speed as in
step 3.
NOTE: To record from external
source, press SET –/+
and set the channel to
"L". "L" will appear next
to CH 125 (or 69).

To enter other programs,
repeat step 2 through 4. Or,
press MENU twice to return
to the normal screen.

Press TIMER on the Remote.
The power will go off, the
TIMER REC indicator ( ) will
light and the VCR stands by
for recording.

To cancel a program:

Press the SET –/+ to select the
“TIMER REC SET” option in the
MENU. Then press SET –/+ to
select the unnecessary program,
and press CANCEL to cancel the
program.

My Samsung video cassette recorder (VR8460 or VR5460) is giving error message SAFE. Can you help me clear it? It will not power off. I have not tried unplugging yet.


Hi. I don't know if you have solved this problenm yet, but that isn't an error. Just press Display button about 5 seconds and that's all. It's just a safety feature to avoid someone from changing setup whet it's prepared to timer record.

1. Is the VCR coming on in the timed mode and recording? Make an experiment- set up a timed record for just a few minutes in advance. Have a tape in the machine- then wait a few minutes & see if it indeed comes on and records. This should for sure help you diagnose your problem.

Note: When a timed record is set up, some VCRs must be turned off, or a particular button pushed to activate the timed record mode, where it will wait for the specified time and come on by itself..

2. Video source set correctly? If all you get is a blue screen, or a moment of snow, then the timed recording is happening, but there is no signal present.

Clock resetting problems


You might contact your cable provider and see if their system indeed is broadcasting this subcarrier information. If so, is their system on the correct time? You might be able to turn this feature off on your VCR. Another thing to try, is disconnect the VCR from the cable system, set the clock, and see if it stays on time. This may indicate whether it is indeed locking it's time to the cable provided time.
