I have a jvc VCR/DVD player and when the DVD is played the audio is present, but there is no video. All I get is a horizontal tearing of black and white lines. Nothing that resemlbes what is being played.

just hooked up with an rca cable from the output jack ( audio/video ) of your dvd recorder then the other end connect to the input jack of the tv. then set your tv at the same time the dvd player to record.
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.
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 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.
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!
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.
