Can't record a program with videotape

I am trying to record a program using a videotape and when I set it up with the date, time, channel, nothing happens. I want to tape a program that will be early in the morning so I want to set it up in advance. Does anyone know how to record in advance. Does the VCR have to be on or off? If I want to record on the spot, do I just press on TIMER REC or REC/OTR. Again I tried both but nothing happens. Thanks p.s. I don't have the manual

Try setting the clock again paying close attention to AM and PM settings as well as everything else. REC/OTR is for recording "on the spot". Make sure unit is in proper mode with the DVD/VCR button. Customer service number is usually on a sticker on these units.

Logik recorder - error message - cannot schedule recording, there is already a timer at the same time on this channel. turned the box off at the wall & retuned. Any suggestions? Thank you. x

check programmed recordings you will have a clash possibly in time and date on another channel. If the dvd records two channels at once normally check if it has two channels already set up at the same time to record i the scheduled recordings.
you may have two different channel positions that are the same tv station and have set up two different channels to record the same show. and then you may be trying to record another different channel at the same time. check and delete extra channel schedule.

Another way to have this is as an example say programmed record at channel nine f0r show 1 at 7:30 to 8.35 day xyz and then you set up show 2 to record at channel nine say from 8:30 to 9.35.day xyz this will use two time frames during the overlap from 8:30 to 8:35 on day xyz and if you decide to record a third show you can't between the overlap time frame

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

I just got a JVC HR-S3500, The online manual only gives timed recording instructions for the number code on a program listing. I need to know how to record by time and channel. This was simple with my...

To program the recording by time and channel, press Prog then press Start +/- (the left-most +/- button below the number pads). You should see the time and channel blanks. Continue pressing the Start +/- button until you get to the desired start time. If you press and hold the Start +/- button, the time will advance by 30 minutes. To set the Stop time, press the next button to the right (the Stop +/- button) until you reach the desired end time. Use the next toggle button (to the right) to set the Date for the recording. Use the Channel +/- button (the right-most button in the row) to set the channel to record. Set the tape speed with the SP/EP button below the Date toggle. Then press Prog or OK to save the recording. This is in the manual under Express Timer Recording which starts on page 42 of the manual. I found the manual here: http://resources.jvc.com/Resources/00/00/99/LPT0024-001B.pdf .

I hope this helps.

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.

Timer record set

Make sure the clock is set. Since the clock must be set before the timer will work, be sure you have entered an accurate date, day of the week, and time (including AM or PM). And always check the clock after a power outage. Also, check that your videotape does not have the tab removed which protects against further recording.
