That would be the timer record indicator. It has either a setting that has not completed (due to a transmission error) or you have set something by mistake to record something on a daily basis and is waiting to be shut down or have something to record on inserted.
Clearing the record screen should clear this. If it doesn't then is a system fault. If this uses a tape, the mode switch will be faulty.

First make certain that somebody (perhaps a child) hasn't been playing with the controls or altering the settings. If they are OK, something might have snapped inside. Video recorders generate a great deal of heat when running this can cause all sorts of faults.

Sounds like the chipboard has blown. You could try pulling the unit apart and see if there is a burn on it not always easy to see but if there is you may as well buy a new one. If not it maybe the power supply regulator has blown which is more likly and this can be replaced but is expencive to do.

Just the usual problem of needing the rubber belts replaced.
Take the top cover off and watch the mechanism move, usually you can see what the problem is if you get to know its motion. Best if you learn this before it develops a problem of course.
Buy a kit of belts for your model from all kinds of sites on the net and install them yourself if you are handy with delicate mechanisms.
Hope ya fix it!

1. Check to see if a tape is jammed inside (see 284 Extract a Jammed Videotape).
2. Try changing the video input and/or output source. Many VCRs have two ways to receive and send a video signal (coaxial and video direct). If that works, try changing the cable for the other method to see whether you need a new cable.
3. Clean tape heads (see How to Clean VCR Heads).
4. Open VCR and inspect any belts that are accessible (see 284 Extract a Jammed Videotape). A drive belt may be broken or loose.

If tapes are getting stuck / enmeshed inside the machine, itis 90% probability) a mechanical problem. Change the Belts, clean all rollers, idlers, and braking pads.
I would suggest that you also replace the Capstan Pinch Roller.

Thank you for getting back to me about my question. I found out that if my DVD is a DVD/ROM it does not burn DVDs. I am told that I can get a external DVD burner to Burn DVDs.
Thank You Very Much

On most TVs, the PC input is the VGA port. Try setting the TV input to HDMI, assuming an HDMI to HDMI cable is in use. You may need to turn off both the TV and the laptop. Then turn on the TV before turning on the laptop. After the laptop is running, you may need to adjust the display settings to send the data to the TV. (For energy conservation, the laptop may not send data to external ports.) On most versions of Windows, you can find a quick Display Settings link by right clicking on the desktop somewhere without icons or running programs. Otherwise, look in the Control Panel (Windows 8 and earlier) or in Settings (Windows 10). (There are similar steps for Mac OSX and Chrome OS.)

I hope this helps.

(Note: using an HDMI to VGA cable is not generally useful. Those can work for some projectors. For a PC to TV, you'd need an HDMI to VGA (digital to analog video) converter.)
