Question about JVC HR-S9400 S-VHS VCR

1 Answer

RCA VR678HF display reads, "LOCK." Nothing will work!

This is a GREAT VCR that I use as a tuner for my television. As a result, my tv has the best picture I've ever seen other than a HD picture. And the display is a bright orange that can easily be seen across the room.

Anyway, last week the display on VCR read suddenly read "lock" and all buttons on the remote and on VCR no longered worked. It has totally shut down and there's nothing on the on-screen menu that covers this dilemma. Even when unplugging the vcr for 2 days, it will still read "lock" and nothing works.

How do I "unlock" my VCR?

How do I connect my Sansui 6010B VCR with an analog TV and a DTV tuner?


two ways of connecting VCR with Analog TV with DTV tuner.
DTV tuner (RF) output to VCR (RF) input,VCR (RF) output to analog TV (RF) input.
turn DTV tuner on (VCR should have a TV\VCR switch that makes signal coming from tuner BYPASS VHS right into TV) note:: change channel FROM tuner.You should be able to record by placing a blank tape and pressing RECORD.
2ND. DTV tuner, VCR, should have a RCA in\out connections...Audio & video.You need a RF\RCA bypass switch. It has a INput with RCA connections to a RF signal out that goes to the RF Input of analog TV

Can anyone replace a cable tuner


I bought a 42" Akai TV that really was just a monitor because it didn't have a built in tuner. I dug up an old vcr hooked my cable up to it and plugged rca cables to the composite out on the vcr to the composite in on the tv and set the input on my TV to run off that input.I was able to change channels through the vcr it worked like a cable box. Thats just an idea that could save some bucks. Oh yeah, if you do this make sure you get an older vcr that has a tuner in it.

No channel below 7 when hooked direct to cable connection. Reset and auto program channels , only get 7 and up. This makes it unable to use VCR tuned to channel 4 or 3 . As well as not getting the lower...

Assuming the picture tube lights up and you have snow when selecting the tuner function, I would first hook up a working VCR with a good tape and play it while the set is on channel 3 (if that is what your VCR is set to). If no sound or picture is displayed while the tape is playing,it could indicate a defective tuner. If you don't even get snow with no antenna connected (unless your set is designed to go to a blue screen with no signal present) then you could have a problem in the video processing circuits which would explain no picture with the RCA connections as well. This would probably make the set beyone economical repair.

Broken cable hook up


sometimes if the tuner is not damaged then a technician can put it back on... the other option is to tune the channel through a vcr.. essentally bypassing the tv tuner and useing vcr tuner. hook the cable to vcr then using rca jacks yellow red and white connect it to you tv(if it has rca jacks ...most have them these days.. sometimes on front and sometime on back or even on the side.. tune your tv to that input(video 1 or something like that.. then using your vcr remote change channel...its not a perfect solution but it will save you the 130 buck most charge to repair that connector

Hi, Based on your post/description, it would appear that the TV tuner of the RCA is at fault. Chances are the the VHF Low is not working right but the VHF High is. This is an inshop repair probably requiring component replacement. You may want to confirm by checking your TV's setup in the menu, you should have Cable selected instead of Air or STd and do a Memory + (scan and add channels). If still a no go, then back to the tuner suspect. The VCR will not display any movie since it normally transmits in Channel 3 (which is VHF Low). If there are no other problem with the VCR then you might still be able to use it by connection it to the A/V inputs of the TV. If the VCR works in A/V mode, then perhaps you may want to save the repair expense of the RCA TV and use the tuner of the VCR to watch TV and switch channels. Post back should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
