Hi there and welcome to Just Answer. I'm Steve. Thanks for asking your question. I'm sorry to hear about your TV.
This is a TV. You must be using something else to record and playback - an external box maybe. Can you give me the make and model please?
I have the user guide. On what page are you reading this?
This TV has no built in recorder.
The TV is able to control external recording devices so that you can go to the program guide, highlight an upcoming program and hit 'record'.
The recording however is done on the external device, not on the TV itself. The TV has no hard drive or memory of any kind that can record TV programs.
I'll be here if you need more help. I want you to be 100% satisfied with my answer.
Thanks very much.
