HR-A37U remote won't work

The remote for this VCR will not work all of a sudden. I cannot turn on the power. It will work to turn on/off the TV if I turn the TV button on on the VCR remote and hit power but it will not turn on the VCR.

    I have a universal remote for vcr's; however, the codes posted in the booklet will not work my JVC HR-A57U. There was 8 codes in the booklet. There must be more codes and how are they accessed?
    thanks

It's not unusual for remote controls to stop functioning either partially or fully. To determine where the problem is, you will have to go through a process of elimination. The easiest way to find out where the problem lies is to purchase an inexpensive universal remote at a nearby store. Try the different codes and see if you can activate the VCR. If it works, you have the option of keeping the remote or returning it for another one if you cannot access all the functions of the VCR. I have seen exact replacements online for under $20.
If it does not work then the trouble is most likely in the VCR itself, unless the proper code could not be found in the universal remote, in which case you need to try another brand or model.
The only other suggestion I have for you would be to unplug the VCR from the AC power for at least 5 to 10 minutes and then plug it back in and try the original remote again.
I hope this helps, good luck.

The remote isn't working (and, yes, I tried new batteries--a couple of times). I need to hit the "TV/VCR" switch. I don't see that same button on the VCR. How can I switch from TV to VCR (and back) when...


I ran into a very similar problem with a TV that I had that did not have a TV/VCR button on it. You HAD to have a remote to change it and the remote for the TV had been LONG lost. The solution was to go to Target or Walmart, and pick up a cheap universal remote. Make sure that the universal remote has a TV/VCR button on it and when you get the right code plugged into the remote it will function just like the original remote.

Vcr does not respond to tv/vcr button on remote


You will not know from looking at the VCR if it is in VCR mode or TV mode. This is more likely a TV issue of whether the TV is monitoring the VCR or not. Make sure you have the TV selected so that it is monitoring the VCR.
That VCR/TV button has caused more confusion for the average person than anything else.

JVC HR-S3901 S-VHS / Switching from TV to VCR no longer works . . .


Ifyou do not see the VCR/TV button switch on the front panel, then its a problem most likly with the firmware in the microprocessor. If you do see the VCR/TV indicator switching in or on the front panel display, most likly a defective RF modulator/switcher or RF antenna pack. You may still be able to get one from like MCM or tritronics or PTS corp can rebuild it for you. I have seen this type of break down many times with VCR's as we used to do hundreds of VCR repairs a day as we did factory service for several companies in the NY/NJ area. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.
