Question about JVC HR-S9500 S-VHS VCR

2 Answers

JVC HR-S9500U The vcr flashes AUTO all the time now. It will turn on for a few seconds then turn off and start flashing AUTO again. If I put a tape in it only stays on long enough to load it and returns to power off auto flashing mode. I checked the child lock(holding the power button)and it's off. It allowed me to do that while loading a tape since that's the only way I can keep it on more than three seconds.

    I have the same problem. Unplugging it for any length of time, 15-minutes or 15-days, makes no difference. When it's plugged in, it's on for 3-seconds, then goes to the flashing "Auto" mode.

OK, found the problem. Another website had the same question on the HR-S9600U, the 9500's replacement:

http://www.cippico.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?p=528&sid=ce3dfc944e4539181195720b836021f4

I checked my vcr, and, sure enough, there was a sort of clicking sound coming from the drum area immediately before the unit would go into "Auto" mode. I removed the complete drum assembly, and tore into the little gearbox, and found the two black, plastic gears with inside pinions that drive the metal screws to change the video head position had each cracked and were slipping on the shafts. This caused the gearbox to bind up.

Using a jeweler's screwdriver, I roughed up the metal shaft and the inside of the gears where they slip onto the shafts, and glued them on using a two-part epoxy. I then re-assembled it all, sorta setting the screws about two turns after their contact with the base of the upper drum. Now, upon power-up, the drum adjusting motor toggles one direction, then the other, and the unit stays on. Playback seems OK.

So, there you go. Yay me....

VHS won't work


Had the same problem on my JVC vcr/dvd combo unit.
You need to turn off the timer function. I did this by making sure my remote was in the "VHS" mode...turn the swith from TV to the right (found on the remote in the upper left corner...an then hit the "vcr" button. Then point the remote at the VCR unit and hit the No. 4 button (timer turns off). Your unit should not have the red timer displayed and you should be able to play your tapes okay.

Hope this helps.
