Question about VCRs

1 Answer

Permanent standby my new funai 31B-250 video cassette recorder doesn't leave the standby modus after switching on. The standby light is solid red. The three lights are flashing - tape in, timer, rec. There is absolute no reaction by pressing the buttons on the recorder front panel nor on the remote control. Only one button ''eject'' on remote control is doing what it shall - the cassette is going out of recorder. The cassette can be put in and out as describe above. I think the firmware has crashed. Is there any possibility to reset the recorder? Many thanks. Alexej

The machine is in a "fault mode", as you have figured, but it's much more likely that a motor has not completed it's cycle upon power-up. It's also possible that the load carriage is out-of-time, and will need to be set according to manual specs...accordianman

Which brand of DVD-R disc did you use? What error did you get? What is your video source? Most TVs don't give video output. The tuner on the WV20V6 is an NTSC (analog) tuner. Thus you need to use a set-top box (OTA digital-to-analog converter, cable or satellite box) with the recording "channel" set to video input 1 for most channels or analog cable input to the recorder.
Verbatim DVD-R 8x, Maxell DVD-R 8X/16X and JVC DVD-R 2X have been tested and proven to work by the manufacturer. A number of DVD+R and DVD+RW or DVD-RW have been tested as well.
I've found that you have to test each batch of DVDs. Different manufacturing plants can lead to bad discs from a previously good brand.
The manual for the WV20V6 is available from Funai Corp (who manufacture the recorder for SV2000). The direct link is http://www.funai-corp.com/support/om/WV20V6.pdf . See page 25 of the PDF for tested optical discs. No CD-Rs will work.
I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more information about your situation for additional support.

We have a Funai analogue tv and a Sony analogue DVD recorder, we need to know how to connect them using 1 or 2 digiboxes.


If your TV and DVD recorder have two SCART sockets each, then you can connect the two boxes to the second scart of each device. When recording the channel selected will have to be AV2. If either of them hasn't a second scart socket. Then I suggest you get one of these scart switching boxes from places such as Amazon.

The buttons on the unit will allow you to record, whilst still watching the TV. 12_17_2012_5_01_21_pm.jpg

TWO VCRs stopped working.


Yes, try to look inside (not in play) when you hit fast forward or rewind--are the reels turning too slow or jerking etc?

It indicates a problem with the transport part of the unit---bad drive idler or even a slipping or bad belt or belts if used.

I have a vwm-400 Sanyo video cassette recorder. The clock on the recorder is set to the correct time! I programmed time recording for a set time to record a program on TV, but timed recording is not...


Hi,
After programing/ feeding record time in VCR, press Timer button on VCR so it will go into standby mode with Timer indication. VCR will automatically turn On at set time and will record program of set channel.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

VCR ejects tape when I try to record using the timer facility


Simple. The Cassette's 'Prevent Erasure' tab is missing. Just cover with Scotch tape and reload. Now try recording.

Recording from AV


Cheaper VCRs will automatically switch to using the AV inputs if a cable is phyisically plugged in. Better units give the user the option of leaving the cables plugged in all the time but you then have to either flip a switch or go into the onscreen menu to select this input. (May be called A/V, or AUX, VIDEO, or even a high channel number like 99)
