Flashing "1" I have a Hitachi VTFX695E Since I can't find this specifi model on the site, I am asking by the model# closest resembling. Whenever I put a tape in, I get a flashinng "1" on the panel, and then it turns itself off. If I could find my owner's manual, I would check to see what that means, but..... Can anyone tell me what that means? (I'm assuming most hitachi's flash the same number for the same problem.

Re: flashing "1"

It could be a defective loading motor, jammed mechnism or defect in the power supply. Probably cheaper to replace the VCR.

What is the code for the remote control for vhf6012a VCR

For which remote exactly? Each manufacturer of programmable/ learning remotes has their own code base and unique numbers for each code.

Asking for a device code without stating the make and model of the remote is pretty pointless. It is like asking for the postcode/zip code of Acacia Avenue but without specifying the city and district. Give us the make and model of the remote and then the community might be able to help

Why my Hitachi F371 Vhs will not turn on

Fault with the main power supply regulator board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis.

Try the Hitachi website. Some makers provide them free as a PDF. You will need the model number, if they don't you could also post the model number on here again and see if anyone has a copy of your model.

Hitachi F361 VCR Digital Auto Tracking (not 631!)

I had the same problem when I got the TV from someone and I didnt have a remote. I went out and got a ONE FOR ALL remote and once I got it set up I had it in VCR mode and hit the AV button and now I can get to the channels. Hope it works for you.
