Time on DVD/VCR Combo auto resetting

When the clock on the Sylvania MODEL 2V450SL8 hits 12:00am or 12:00pm it auto resets to 9:00am - every time.

Any suggestions on what could be occurring.

It is connected to cable (COMCAST).

    Darklord1 may be right it can also be the cmos battery gone, the fact is that in this case (battery gone) it should rather reset when you disconnect from power or eventually turn it off, not at a determined time.

    As I suspected your DVD has Auto Clock settings, CMOS battery probably is not cause for the problem.
    Check you user manual for Auto Clock settings and disable it.
    Here is procedure for a similar model:
    1
    Hit [SETUP].
    Easy Setting Menu or Advanced
    Setting Menu will appear.
    If Advanced Setting Menu is displayed,
    proceed to step 3.
    2
    Using [K / L], select
    “Advanced Setting Menu”.
    Hit [ENTER].
    Advanced Setting Menu will
    appear.
    3
    Using [K / L], select “Clock”.
    Hit [ENTER].
    Clock menu will appear.
    4
    Using [K / L], select “Auto
    Clock Setting”. Hit [ENTER].
    Option window will appear
    5
    Set 'auto' to off.

    Try the procedure, if it works you should change solution rating and accept my solution.

    Ginko can be right sir you shouldnt have voted Fixya yet.. IF the battery aint the problem then I'd suggest you contact fixya and have the fixya vote rmoved as it would be unfair to ginko or another expert who may have posed the right solution.. But my money is on the battery.

Clock will not keep time


Aside from resetting the time to the correct time every once in a while, it's not worth fixing. I have a sharp vcr that the clock starts to run fast 2-4 weeks after i set it.

And another thing to check is to make sure the VCR is not plugged into a socket that activates with a wall switch that you might turn on and off everyday.

Need 4 digit code forsylvania tv dvd combo model ld195sl8a


Unfortunately, your remote control predates TV/DVD combos and as such the manual does not list a code for a Sylvania TV/DVD combos.

To make this control work with a TV/VCR combo, one would enter 0054 for the TV controls and 0081 for the VCR controls. May I suggest you try the following codes for the TV: 0054, 0030, 0096, 0020, 0381. If these codes do not work, try running through the auto-code search.

The manual for the URC-4330 does not list any Sylvania DVD codes at all, so I recommend running through the auto-code search. Here are the steps:

  1. On the remote control, press DVD once.
  2. Press and hold SET until the LED blinks twice, then release SET.
  3. Enter 9 - 9 - 1.The LED will blink twice.
  4. Aim the remote control at the the DVD and slowly alternate between pressing POWER and DVD. Stop when the DVD turns off.
  5. To lock in the code, press and hold SET until the LED blinks twice, then release SET.
Hope that helps.

I hAVE 24 in DVD triple combo ^&@$DG TV. I put


You're describing what could be a loose or worn loading belt problem, most of the vcr mechanisms used in these combos use one to load the tape and thread it for it to play or record, that is why you have to keep puhing the tape untill the machine accepts the tape and you have to keep pressing play untill it starts the play function.

RCA model DRC8335 Loosing the date and time


That will be a problem from the text side of the broadcast, the clock is set from the text transmission, ( in other words a problem from the transmitter ) possibly due to digital switchover or work on the transmitters. One possible solution would be to turn off auto clock setting, and/or auto summer time adjustment.
