But this repair should only be carried out by qualified specialists, please make sure of this when handing over the VCR for repair. You should not open the lid yourself (disassemble the VCR) and try to repair it, this automatically deprives you of warranty service and may cause other damage or even fire to the device.

Some programs are routed by certain channels using a VPS system, which is a video recorder programming system or a PDC system. The signals transmitted by these systems turn the recording on and off in the right place, even if there is a delay in the start of the television program. Your VCR can recognize these signals. If the program you are watching is transmitted using a VPS or PDC system, then the VPS or PDC indicator is played on the VCR display. In this case, you can use the functions listed below.

To avoid unnecessary difficulties associated with the need to explain to the VCR where the ShowView code is located and where the program number is located, the VCR automatically remembers where to look for programs that you have programmed to record using the ShowView system. This means that when you select a timer recording program using the ShowView system for the first time, the corresponding screen appears. Just enter the program number from your cable/satellite receiver. After that, the VCR will remember the location of this program. The next time you use the ShowView number associated with recording programming, the VCR will know where to look for the right program. Thus, the VCR will create a library of channel locations.
