I have a JVC HR-S5965 VCR which is about three years old and recently the timer record function has stopped working whilst using the remote. I contacted JVC and they suggested it was the remote. I purchased a secondhand model rather than just the remote. The problem was the machine not the remote. The replacement VCR worked fine for two months and I now find I have the same problem. Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be and is it repairable?
