Sounds like a mode switch problem to me. It will need to be replaced.

Is this a problem of the VCR not doing a timed record at all, or of it recording only snow (no signal) or perhaps the wrong channel? If the first, then it would point to incorrect setup of the timed record session or that the clock time & date settings are incorrect... the VCR setup stuff. Also, once the timed recording is setup, there is often one additional button to push to actually ready the VCR. Older VCRs, were put into the timed mode by power off. If VCR isn't recording anything (it is coming on to record, but no signal), then it has to do with hookup of the VCR. Depending on your cable system, the VCR can only record the channel the cable box is tuned to. Again, depending on the system, the VCR needs to be cabled in between the cable box and your TV (cable box RF out to VCR RF in, VCR RF out to TV RF in) RF=ant. Exact cabling will vary.

You can use some functions of the MVDR2102 without a remote. You can play a DVD. You can also record a program (one-touch recording) from an external source or a specific channel. You can't access the timer recording function or finalize a disc without a remote that provides those functions. See https://www.manualslib.com/manual/295195/Memorex-Mvdr2102.html?page=9#manual for the front panel buttons on the DVD recorder. Note: the DVD recorder only has an NTSC (analog tuner).

I hope this helps.

First, ensure that the TV is set to the TV (either NTSC (analog) or ATSC (digital)). To do this, press the Source button until this is the highlighted source. (The Source button is the second from the left (as you face the set) on the top of the TV. There is also a source button on the remote above and to the right of the arrow keys.) Next press the Menu button (center of the arrow keys on the remote or the button just to the right of the Source button on the TV). Use the navigation arrows to navigate the menus. The Channel up/down buttons mimic those arrow keys on the remote. Press the Volume Up or right arrow to select an item. Next select Setup and go to Preset. Select this sub-menu and go to Reception. Select the item and then set the mode to TV for over-the-air. Set this to CATV for cable on the antenna RF input. Press Menu repeatedly to go back in the menu system. Return to the Preset section of the Setup menu. Navigate to the Auto Install and select this. Wait for the TV to scan all channels for either NTSC or ATSC depending on the current Source. Exit the menu and change the source to the other TV tuner. Repeat the steps to Auto Install to store channels for both the analog and digital tuners.

The manual is available from ManualsLib here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/101765/Memorex-Mlt1912.html . See pages 5, 16 and 17 (pages 6, 17 and 18 as labeled by ManualsLib) for the screen shots and pictures of the remote control and front panel buttons for these steps.

Since there are only a few low-power NTSC stations still broadcasting, you may not find any stations when you scan for channels with NTSC as the source. Depending on the stations in your area, skipping the Auto Install step for NTSC may be appropriate. I hope this helps.
