Question about VCRs

Sanyo VCR - further info required

Following on from your response to my query re my mum's VCR. Unfortunately, she can't afford Sky Plus so that's not an option.
The VCR is working fine using channels 1 to 5 but doesn't accept an channel input above 80 so how does she record three digit channels?

Hi, as stated on other post, VCR cannot be programmed storing sat channels in memory, you can get only a unique sat input channel on VCR.
You can only record from the channel that is currently been received on Sat, you can even use VCR timer, but you cannot store Sat channels into VCR.
all you do is connecting the sat box output to VCR, and VCR will see the SAT box as input, or line 1, or AV1, or external, or something similar, depending on the model.
You cannot program VCR on sat channel, you will need to leave sat box on the channel you want to record, it will be the same on a DVD RW.

Regards

I have acquired a Panasonic NV-FJ620B-S Video Cassette Recorder which has 2 x scart sockets on the back. 1 marked AV2 DECODER/DECODEUR(EX) the other AV1 (TV). The AV1 scart connector works fine on the TV...


Have just visited the Panasonic UK website and the User Manual for the Panasonic NV-FJ620B-S is available free. It lists on page 11 all the details. I'll e-mail it you Tom to see if it helps.

Proper vcr connections to operate on a television


Since the cable is connected to the VCR and from there to the TV. The TV should be tune to channel 3 or 4. Using this connection, the VCR tuner will be changing channels when is ON, if you want to change channels on the TV; the VCR should be on standby.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Sanyo vcr player vwm 900, tape won't COME OUT.


This needs a little bit of care but essentially you will need to unplug the power from the VCR then do the following:

Remove the top cover
Then with the front of the VCR facing you look to see if any of the tape is wound around a large metallic silver drum, that is tilted upward and is not flat, at the rear of the tape casing. If so then it means that it has wound around the drum and you will need to retrieve the tape to allow the eject mechanism to work. Do not touch the shiny polished part of the drum. To get the tape in usually means that you have to locate a plastic or metal cog wheel, usually on the right side of the VCR that you can turn with your finger. This makes the VCR motor move. Also there is one that works the tape eject mechanism. If you can find the one to wind in the tape before working on the one for the tape eject than you stand a chance of rescuing the tape, if not then it will get some damage. Don’t worry about turning the cog wheels with your finger as you can do very little harm to the VCR with no tools involved and no power on. Moving the cogs this way will only cause very small movements with the tape motor and eject so you will need to be a little patient and you will soon see what is happening. Once remove run a cleaning tape through the VCR before you use it again. With the limited space available her it is difficult to give you much more info.
