Customer Question
I have a Sony VCR...
I have a Sony VCR for DVD and VHS recording. Yesterday I switched form Verizon to Time Warner. In speaking with a representative from Time Warner about why my software wasn't working, i.e., the command signal or the system preferences button. She suggested that I check to see whether the installation person had connected the plugs to the VCR. He hadn't. She suggested at the same time that I move from DVD 1 or 3 input to DVD 3. Everything froze. Rather than having any window coming up where I can pre-record or change the settings, all I get is a signal saying DVD 2 on the VCR. I've tried turning the machine on and off many times. Is there some button somewhere where I can reset the whole thing?
