Philips dvdr 3380

Hi, everyone,
just purchased above recorder but I can’t get it to record on the timer or videoplus. I have followed all the instructions and the machine shows timer to be on but it does not start up.
How do I know whether it is in stand by or on, as there does not appear to be any difference. to select the Video in channel I have to turn the machine on but in the instructions the standby-on button is not pressed until last.
Hope this makes sense to somebody, here’s hoping!!

You might have better luck if you post your question
in the Philips forum. :slight_smile:
Perhaps the moderator will move your post over there.
Sorry I’m not familiar with your recorder.
