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.

Samsung DVD-V3650 Combo Player ejects most videotapes without playing them


You can only compensate for minor scratches. As for the vcr side the rollers could be dirty or the brake worn out. The tensioner may be too sensitive as well. Basically the mechanism probably needs servicing.

I have a Goldstar VCR and I want to record a tv program using it. How do I do it?


Most Goldstar VCRs only have an analog tuner. (TVs do not often have an option to output their video to another device.)

So first what is the source of the TV program? If it is an OTA analog or CATV cable. Set up the VCR normally by connecting the incoming signal cable to the VCR and then use the coax out to the TV. Scan for channels and set the VCR to record the desired program. (Either use the timed record or one touch record method.)

If your source is digital, you will need a set top box (either a digital to analog converter or cable box). To split an incoming OTA signal between your TV and the converter box, you can use a switch or a splitter. (A splitter will give lower signal strength to both the TV and the converter box.)

Depending on the box, you can either connect a coax cable from the box to the VCR and then to the TV or composite video from the box to the VCR. If you use coax, set the converter to channel 3 or channel 4 and record that channel. Otherwise set the VCR to record Line 1.

To record, put in a tape with sufficient space available with an intact safety tab. For One Touch Recording, set the VCR to the desired channel and tape speed. Then press Rec. Press several time for a timed recording. For Timed recording, press Menu > Program. Press Select and move through the list to program day to record, the start/stop time, and channel, etc. When done, press Menu to save the setting. The timer light should come on (most VCRs will turn off).

I hope this helps.

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,

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.

ERROR CODES E24 ~& E4 54037380 ON MY DVD RECORDER, CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT THESE MEAN, THANKS


If you are trying to record vhs tapes to the dvr side, first you need to get 1x up to 8x DVD-R dvds. You can find them on ebay. The machine has problems recognizing the up to 16x type. Put the blank DVD in and let it load. Then start playing (not dubbing but playing) the videotape for at least 6-8 seconds. If you have somewhat of a lead-in on the videotape you can let it go even 10 seconds. Only after the videotape has been playing for this period of time, press the dubbing button. If the error code does come up, rewind the tape and start again, but in most cases the error code will not happen if you do it like this.

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.
