I'm having trouble changing the record speed on my dvd/vcr recorder. I would like to change sp to lp or slp. I would like to record 6 hours on a 6 hour tape instead of just recording 2 can anyone help


We perhaps could have been of use, when you had told us in the first place what brand and model your recorder is. For the VCR part, some recorders do have a setting in the menu, to switch to LP (long play) but not all records have this option. So when the manual does not offer this option, your recorder can't.
When you post the details of your recorder, perhaps I manage to find the specs and will be able to tell you what your recorder can and can't. Give me a day, because it is bed time for me.

SONY keeps switching to EP at beginning of playing SP tapes


You may have dirty heads in the vcr---most 4 head machines use two for sp and the other two for lp and or ep.

Tape residue will usually be seen on the drum where the heads are when this happens--also look for the black residue on the tape guides that hold the tape in position against the drum-------

Normally this setting is found on the remote if there is no parallel settings on the panel of the set.
So if youhave lost the remote controller the universal remote must be changed to one which can select the speed settings. Normally the default settings is on the SP mode while the LP mode needs to be selected.
The other option is to identify the trigger of the main processor and use a manual switch to turn on the LP mode. Check for the manual of the set and look for the LP output pin of the processor.
Here the SP mode output also must be taken into consideration so that you can use a manual 4pole two way switch to activate the SP-LP mode.
Otherwise you may need to get the original remote control from the OE maker.

Sony - SLV-685HF -vcr using universal remote one for all 3021 can't change recording from sp to ep so I can record more on tape. vcr says auto, or 180 in speed setting always records sp. I just want to pop...


I solved it myself by selecting guide on the remote, then the tv screen said enter plus code. ijust type in all 0's for each space given (0000000) then the setting instantly changrd to EP from SP. I pushed set on the universal remote , that was it.
It was necessary to use the power button to turn vcr off like tthe TV screen said because I was just setting the timer. You can just go to menu or whatever next.

How do you switch tape speeds to LP on a Sony Handy cam TRV 240


You can set tape speed SP or LP in record mode only and can not change it in playback mode.
To set tape speed, turn camcorder in camera mode and go to Menu and set SP or LP in record speed option.

Changing from sp to ep


it will automatically play at the speed the tape was recorded at. but if you want to change record speeds here's how: you should be able to access menu functions from the front of the vcr, if so, put a tape to be recorded into the unit and then set the timer for a couple of minutes.while you are on the timer menu it will ask you for recording speed. set the timer record speed to ep and let it record for two minutes and let it record for the full time untill it stops recording. the record speed will automatically change settings to whatever you used last on timer record.

Tape Speed


Most late VCRs of the last 10+ years had just basic operating functions with the VCR mounted buttons. Setup of timed recording, and other advanced functions require a remote box, either the manufacturer original, or a universal unit which specifically is able to do advanced. Not all universal units have that capability, so if you go to your local electronics store, check this out carefully. Manufacturer remotes are available: Look here- http://www.electronicadventure.us/Merchant2/merchant.mv?screen=prod&store_code=EA&product_code=6711R1N051A Zenith may offer their own universal remotes- again, check them out for the capabilities required.

Toshiba M674 Lost Remote can't change tape speed


Is this an older VCR? If you can set the timer on the VCR itself
like on an older model you can set the timer and set it to record
in another speed. But if you can't do this. You are stuck at
recording in sp. If you can set the timer, if you make just
one mistake it may not come on at all. That's why vcrs
are not as reliable as dvrs. if you don't want to miss a show
diffinatly make sure you re at home and see it come on
like fill up the whole tape and put the show on the end of the tape. like a 2 hour movie comes on a 8pm-10pm set the
timer at ep speed to come on at 4:05pm- 10:05pm and put a 2 hour tape in it. in ep it will record for 6 hours. tape will stop
automatically so you will record it, and it will be on the tape
at the end. that's the way i do it. if I'm not going to be at home
if i really don't want to miss a show at all. because when you set the timer it still might not come on if you see it on you know
its going to record it.
note its cheaper to just buy a new vcr than buying a $72 remote.
you might as well do that if it is a newer model.

I bought an older model vcr in a thrift store for $10 and it worked good for a year for recording shows. I got lucky I guess.
it didn't have a remote I use the timer to set the ep speed
to record.
