No remote for Goldstar 8mm VHS VCR recorder player

I just picked up this unit from a thrift store to use to play/record my 8mm tapes but it did not come with remote. We can't get the unit to switch to 8mm mode, it only plays VHS tapes and when we insert the 8mm tape it immediately ejects the tape. Is this problem fixable without a remote and do we even need the remote to use the machine at all? Thank you for this site and help!

8mm JVC tapes put into a VHS tape that will play on a combined TV and VCR. Please, please, I need your help! Found tapes from 15 years ago.


You need an 8mm player or the camera that recorded the tapes. Connect the video and audio from the 8mm player/camera to a VHS recorder. Put the 8mm on play and the VHS on record.

I just bought a used Memorex VHS player/recorder at a thrift store, Model MVR2031. I also have a remote MVD2015. Is there any way to make the remote control this player? If not, what remote do I need to...


If it doesn't work as is, then no. You'll have to purchase a Universal Remove, any basic model should work. Just make sure it has VCR Support.

Once you purchase a universal Remove Go Here is you need the codes to that VCR:

VHS system malfunction


VCR's automatically detect what speed the present tape was recorded at. It only gives you a choice of speeds when doing the recording. If you are saying that it won't playback a tape recorded in one of the slow speeds, it is most likely because VCR's with more than two heads use different combinations of them in different speeds and the ones used for slow speeds are maybe needing cleaning. If this is the case, the vcr will seem to be playing OK, but the video playback will be bad.

Tapes not playing


Hey do the tapes play at all? sometimes some tapes recorded
on other machines won't play on others. maybe you need to adjust the tracking on the VCR you are playing it on. If the tape
was recorded on a VCR that is misaligned it might not play back
on another VCR. Also the tape may have been recorded on a
super VHS VCR in et (extended definition) mode if so they won't play on just any VCR. If the picture looks scrambled like a
premium channel on analog cable then it's probably recorded in et.
and if its recorded on super VHS tape it may eject out of your VCR.
They don't make these S-VHS vcrs anymore but people still
have them around. There is also Digital VHS they're not
compatible with VHS either. A VHS recorded in et mode will
play on some more expensive vcrs it should say so on the box
or instructions.

Recording from one vhs recorder to another.


Hi,

If your plan is to copy a VHS movie to a blank VHS tape, the connections would require a 3 wire RCA connector/cable. The unit where the original movie will be played will be the player. Connect the yellow video RCA cable to the VIDEO OUT, the red & white to the AUDIO L/R OUT. On the 2nd unit designated as recorder, slip in the blank VHS tape. Connect the other end of the RCA 3 wire cable to yellow VIDEO IN, the red & white to the AUDIO L/R IN. Connect the RF OUT of the 2nd unit (recorder to the ANT IN of a TV set. Set the TV to either Channel 3 or 4 as the case may be.

If the recorder has a manual selector or via remote, pls verify that it is set to Video and not tuner (or channels) input.

Press Record on the recorder (2nd unit), press play on the 1st unit (player). The TV will serve as monitor to your copying progress.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or shoould you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Playback sound


Unit might be picking up 60 cycle hum or other electromagnetic field. Is VCR sitting on/under another piece of electronic equipment? If so, it could pick up such from the power supply circuitry of that other device. Try moving the VCR away from other equipment and see if the unwanted sound disappears.
