20 Most Recent Emerson EWV601B VCR Questions & Answers

You have got yourself into a tricky mess there. The mechanism was set up in a certain way. When you extracted the tape, it sent the mechanism into the wrong position. There is also a switch called a mode switch that is linked to the mechanism and the electronics of the video. This switch tells the electronics what mode the video is in - IE: fast forward etc. This is now out of position and the whole mechanism needs to be set up in the correct position, assuming there is no faults, and so does the mode switch.
However the bad news is that unless you have the service manual you have little chance of setting it up right. Most video's for example are NOT set up in the eject position for a start, so unless you have the instructions, you will never get it to work right.

If you have the instruction book that came with your remote you may find your VCR listed in it. If not, the book should give you the procedure to put the remote in the "search mode" which should help you make it operate the VCR.

There are replacement remotes and universal remotes that may work. This one is an exact replacement without the Emerson branding: https://www.remotes.com/emerson-p/emerson-rtnb118ud-insert.htm .

I hope this helps.

Fault to its main board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ . In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

If I am not mistaken.... judging only from experience and not researching your products, that giant remote is ir (infrared) and if I'm not mistake the roku is bluetooth remote. The giant remote is not bluetooth capable or RF to my knowledge, the roku is not ir compatible as far as i know even if its not bluetooth it would be some variation of it i.e RF. Good luck

Change your video source - input. If you don't see anything, there maybe a problem with TV. You can do a hard reset by unplugging TV from outlet for 15 minutes. If you are still unable to view anything, like video input message from TV, you have a more serious problem. Is your TV a CRT or LED/LCD? If your emmerson is a CRT, it's most likely the TV lamp. You can look on Amazon or ebay and pic one up for under $100. If it's a LED or LCD, it can be the motherboard. Which you can also find for under $100.
