SOURCE: VCR not timer recording, VCR will not turn on with timer

If no menu, unplug, and let it set a few minutes. Replug and the on-screen menu should appear. Reset the set-up (date, etc). I had the same experience as one of the other posters with JVC customer service telling me the menu button on the remote was malfunctioning, and I should purchase a new remote from them.
After you input your programming, be sure to hit the Timer button on your remote. If you want to change tapes or playback, you will need to hit the Timer button again (take it off Timer) for access to your VCR. Be sure to reset it to Timer afterwards, or you will not be able to record.

WOULD LIKE A USER MANUAL FOR A SHARP VC-A582U


It depends what you are recording from. Most newer tv broadcast will block the recording by injecting copyright code into the stream. It forces you to get a dvr system from the company like cable or satellite. Because of the new digital broadcast it makes over the air recording to vhs difficult. More for the fact that you have to hook a converter box to the vcr to get the signal from digital to analog again. Here is the link to the manual. http://archivos.diagramas.mx/otros/VCA582U.pdf

My sharp VCR wont accept tapes, they pop out when I insert them, help?


This often caused by a faulty carriage assembly. Another cause is a mode switch failure. The mode switch tells the electronics what position the VCR mechanism is in. When it goes faulty it will cause the tape to eject sometimes. However any kind of mechanism damage can cause the mode switch to go into a wrong position.

VCR Recorder VC-H982 Can't time record. can't select a channel other then 3, 40 av under timer. What is pdc?. where dose it appear. what is sap in set up window? what is air in the channel...


You will probably find a free manual at the Sharp website. That should answer most of your problems. However can tell you that PDC stands for Programme Delivery Control. With it on, say you want to record a program that starts at 9pm and finishes at 10pm. Then all you need is set the control to on, when you set the timer recording, and the video will record your show, even if it starts at say 9.10 and runs while 10.10. The VCR will wait till 9.10 to start and stop at 10.10. Good if a sporting event or live event overruns!
However PDC doesn't work on digital and will not work sometimes at all or if you set the timer wrong. It uses the old teletext signal, which is why if you are in an area that has gone over to digital it should be set to off! As it will never get a PDC signal!!!!

My vcr wont record when programed but will if you just push the record button


When you set the timer see if PDC appears. If it does switch it to off and try setting a record. PDC sometimes doesn't work. And the recorder will sit there waiting for the signal to tell it when to start recording. Which never comes! However you will have to set the time to adjust for it not recording late running TV shows. For example a show to start at 8pm and finish at 8.30pm, will need to be set at 7.59 till 8.35pm. Or you could miss the start or end! Wheras PDC would get it all even if it started at 8.05!

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.

I need instruction to set recording for sharp h952 vcr


You need remote to get menu to set the clock then go to timed recording setting. Then you load a new tape, then shut down the vcr and wait for the timer to start the vcr and recording for you.

If you need a manual, google for sharp vcr manual download free from sharp website.

Set the timer to record


Do you have the remote which came with it? Most VCRs of the last 10 years require the remote to setup a timed record, or for that matter, most of the advanced functions- beyond play/rewind/ffwd, etc.

Assuming you do have the remote, and the correct time is set, and the timed record properly setup, some VCRs require a the On-Timed-Record button to be pushed. This sets the VCR in a wait mode, until the time set for the recording to begin.

Consult your owners manual- an online manual may be available if the printed one is missing.

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.
