I received a JVC DR-MV80B DVD/VCR combo and the DVD's play fine, but on the VCR side, the video doesn't play - only hear audio. Is this a product issue, or something that can be repaired without costing...

Try cleaning the video heads - assuming you got a 'snow' image with audio, see if it helps. Otherwise the VCR might require a head replacement/mechanical realignment, which could be expensive/uneconomical.

Jvc dvd/vcr player records from vcr to dvd but only plays back the dvd on the jvc DR-MV79 won't play on any other dvd players

Have you finalized the DVD in question? Unfinalized discs usually won't play in other machines. Is the DVD type compatible with the other dvd players? (Some may not handle DVD+R for example; it is an acceptable disc for the jvc DR-MV79.) Try a different brand and type of DVD. Check your other players supported discs.

To Finalize the disc, Menu > Setup > Disc Setting > Finalize (if needed set Disc Protection to Off).

I hope this helps.

Can't get my new DVD/VCR to work.

I read the instruction manual one more time. It said to tune my TV to Video and voila, the VCR worked. All JVC VCR's seem to need the tv tuned to Video to play back. I had an older JVC VCR and I had to do the same thing with it.
Thanks anyway.

My JVC DR-MV150B plays prerecorded VHS tapes fine.

Try opening the front hatch of the tape by pressing the small, square button on the right or left (short) side of the tape. Check the black tape inside for any marks, dirt, scratches, tears, etc. If the tape is fine then your unit needs to be cleaned with a tape cleaner available at any electronics specialty or retail store. Good luck to you!

How to hook up vcr and dvd together ?

|DVD| -> |VCR| -> |TV|

1. Connect your VCR to your TV. (Using Antena cable or RCA cables.)

2. From your DVD player, choose the AUDIO VIDEO OUT. Then, connect that to your VCR's LINE IN jacks.

(*)Your DVD player has 3 jacks coming out. Yellow-video, White- Audio Left and Red- Audio Right.
If you VCR does not have the RED jack. Go to a radio shack and tell on of the sales person taht you need to connect 2 RCA audio outs to 1 RCA audio in. (He/ She will give you a "2RCA Male to 1RCA Female" splitter)

3. Finally, play your DVD, put your VCR channel in TV and most important select the LINE channel in your VCR. (This channal may called as L1, Line,... etc)

You should be seeing the DVD in your TV now.

If you want to play the VCR, just put the casset and play.

Important- The VCR needs to be powered on in order to the DVD signals to go to the TV.

Video channel

Dear Gonedeep2,
Are you saying the DVD/VCR player does not have a coaxial socket?
Does your TV have RCA sockets to match the DVD/VCR player.
(ie. red and white for audio and yellow for video signals).

Video channel

if your DVD player supports a HDMI cable a single cable is enough for both audio and video channel.

but both your player and TV must support HDMI.
