    This first advice was worthless.

I think what everyone is trying to say here is that the universal remote may not allow you to pull up functions like the setup feature on the VCR....they are usually meant for just the basic functions such as rewind/pause/forward/on/and off. To use the full functions of the VCR your best bet would be to buy the original remote for that model VCR

Here is a link to one: http://www.sony.newremotecontrol.com/catalog_item.php?catnum=141815311

Hope that helps you out a bit , and sorry for the bad news!

My Sony VCR Model SLV-662HF will not accept cassettes. I am using a universal remote control. The VCR's display shows APC 71501 and 81508. Do these APC codes refer to the VCR or the All In One universal...


The codes are to program the universal remote control to communicate with the Sony VCR. Try programming the universal remote using one of these: 60000 60032 60033 60035
The acceptance of the cassettes may not be related to the use of a universal remote control. If the URC doesn't have the "equivalent" functionality of the VCR's original remote control, you may not be able to use the URC to perform the functions of the original remote control.

Where can i buy new belts for this model SLV679HV


Now days it's all about trial and error w/ vcr belts. Your best bet is to find a tech that has several of the old belts in stock. It doesn't have to be exact, but needs to be very close in size to the original.

Where can I get a remote control for the Sony VHS SLV 685HS?


You can get a duplicate of the original remote (new or used) here: http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=SLV-685HF&uuid=12875134515770 for the 685HF. I can not find the SLV 685HS is not a valid model that I can find at either Sony Parts or Remotes.com.

However, a refurbished remote for the SLV685HS is listed at: http://www.replacementremotes.com/SONY/Buy-RMT-V231A-RMTV231A-147555321-Video-Remote-Control.html . (E-bay also lists a few remotes for th SLV685HS; these listings may or may not still be valid.)

I hope this helps.

Need universal remote


You should have no trouble getting a universal remote to work the basic functions: power, tape motion, etc. But you may have problems with advanced functions such as programming or accessing any special features the model may have. Often only the original remote has all the buttons needed. Universal remotes don't usually give complete control. If you're just looking to play tapes, you should be good with any basic universal remote that.

Remote ineffective.


If you have a video camera with a night vision setting, wait until dark, turn out the lights and turn the camera onto night vision and look the the remote. When you press the buttons on the remote does the small led transmitter on the front ligh up. If so the remote is working but possibly sending the incorrect signals.

Vcr does not run


Try changing the channels on the VCR itself. If you can do that, then it would indicate a problem with the VCR's remote. If you are still unable to change channels on the VCR manually, it could indicate a circuitry problem, for which you will have to get the VCR serviced.

Programming my mitsubishi remote


If the remote is specific for your model of Mits (or a range of Mits models) it should be able to do every function including time/date/timer record. If by chance this is a universal remote box (it doesn't look so by the part number you supplied), many such boxes- especially lower cost ones, may not be able to do those advanced functions. Your remote box should have a menu button which will allow you to access all the setup areas. One site shows your remote http://www.replacementremotes.com/store/prodthumbs.cfm?sr=101&CATEGORYID=289 and there is a menu button on it. It is possible the remote box has a problem (well used boxes can have buttons which fail to work, or are difficult to activate. Did you purchase these new, or used? If used, then perhaps a dead or difficult button is a fair possibility. If this is the problem, sometimes this can be fixed or improved by taking the box apart and cleaning the button pad and matching contact surfaces on the circuit board.
