Re: picture distrub and audio noisy

Not all tracking is created equal, and this is a classic example of what you want to do in the future. Make sure that the tape you want to play back in the secondary machine has been recorded originally in the "SP" mode. "EP mode sometimes has too much crosstalk to effectively play in other machines without the more closely spaced tracks interferring with each other. Hop this helps...Accordianman

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.

Unable to switch from "Norm" audio track on old tapes

Hello, this problem is because of the nature of previously recorded signal. The recording made in an older way (mono) has a separate head and the solution for your problem can be to clean the head. This head has two functions, for control pulses and audio signal. If you need more info please advice. Arpi

Jvc a 55u plays a movie from the store but I cant get it to tape a regular tape,it's a nice vcr and I have never seen this problem, the moves from the store are played great but when I put in my own tape...

Hi Diane,
Just downloaded the manual for your vcr it says:

1 Press menu

2 press up/down arrows to Function Set then press ok

3 press channel up/down arrows to Auto picture then press Ok or shuttle plus right arrow to set to on or off when using rental tapes set either to on or off to give the best picture

4 to return to normal press menu

For recording

1 load a cassette make sure the tab on the cassette is intact if not put some cellotape over the hole

2 set channel press up/down arrows then press enter

3 select tape speed sp/ep

4 press and hold rec and press play on remote or just press record on unit

5 to pause recording (cut out ads) press pause on remote to continue again press play

6 to stop recording just press the stop button

hope this helps and reflects in my feedback lol all the best

Either the camera or the vcr is dirty. Try running a cleaning cassette through both, but bare in mind that tapes which were recorded while the camera was dirty will ALWAYS look like that. Forever.

JVC HR-DVS3 Mini DV/S-VHS VCR time code problem

time code problems may be the result of tape path alignment, but since you have the same problem with five decks, don't overlook the possibility that the tapes themselves may have defective or non-existent time code. check to make sure the device that recorded the time code isn't malfunctioning.

Older VHS tapes play 'sped up' on S-VHS

A couple of possibilities: 1. One of the machines had a audio & tracking head alignment problem. If memory serves, tracking pulses are recorded on the bottom edge of the tape, and if one machine's head is slightly off, then these pulses aren't being picked up.

2. Do both machines have 3 play/record speeds? Many machines had SP, EP, & LP. Some didn't have EP, and if your older tapes were recorded in EP, perhaps this would cause your problem.

Both of these possibilities might be way out in left field.

Perhaps you could have a friend try your old tapes in their machine- in short, narrow down the defect. Is it the older VCR and it's recordings, or is it some goofy problem on the new one.

Lastly, you might check the audio/tracking head- see if it needs cleaning. This head is just to the right of the rotating video drum assembly.

Poor EP playback

hi sir
the speed in EP is differ from sp ,EP it is much slow then all quality would be less cause you are using less magnetic particles on the tape so here are many reasons for bad recording
first may be you have to clean video heads
or ,you have to clean the path of the tape in the recorder there are some metal guides that turnes with the tape to get it rounds the heads they may be dirty
or clean the capstain pinch roller and its metal roller that makes it run ( the capstain roller )
or you should have new heasd drum sir
