Dell XPS 13 9370 (2018) review
Help! I'm visiting my old man for the weekend and he wants me to fix his DVD recorder! Arghh, why ask me. Anyway, I have found you guys so hopefully, between us, we can put him out of his misery. Right ... when trying to record a programme, he can put all the information in the date, time to start, time to finish etc however, at the bottom of the screen there's a red button saying "timer off"! Does anybody know how the timer can be switched on again so he can happily record his programmes? As for the instruction manual?! God knows where that will be. Thank you :)
failing that get the manual here
Just looked ...no, there isn't one on the remote.
I have to go out now, I've got the same Panasonic 75EB, I will check it out and let you know later on.
I have a spot of trouble at home, eedcam (John) knows what I am on about (Pet and the word beginning C).
See you soon.
Joy 2008. I have this machine. It is far easier to select the programme you want to record on the Electronic Programme guide (Press Green Guide button on remote, and then select programmes you want and press OK - A little clock symbol appears by the programme. Then escape (right low small button) and press off to put machine in standby. You can add a bit of time to a recording if you want - just before you press the ok button there is an option to do this. Much easier than fiddling around with timings as one did with VCR's.
"at the bottom of the screen there's a red button saying "timer off"! Does anybody know how the timer can be switched on again so he can happily record his programmes?":
If it says "Timer Off" that is how it should be to Record a Program.
If you press the "Red" Oblong button on the remote just above the "Rec" button and below the Round "SUB MENU" Button that will change the message to "Timer On", but you will NOT be able to record anything using the timer.

If you look at Page 20 of the "Operating Instructions - EB Model 06/04/2006" 9.0MB Manual,

If there is a RED Clock to the Left of the Record Program No. It Is Set To Record The Program Via The Timer, If the Box DOES NOT have a RED Clock in the Fist Box IT WILL NOT Record the Program.
I Hope this Expanation Helps, Even though it sounds Complicated (It Isn't), It's just me, Mind a littled muddled and Upset at the moment.
All the Best,
