Question about Mitsubishi HS-U795 S-VHS VCR

1 Answer

The sound cuts on and off and on and off and...

The audio on my MITSUBISHI HS-U795 will cut out for about 15 or 20 seconds and then come back on for a minute or two then cut out again......and on again...and off again etc. We can rule out tracking problems because this occurs whether there's a tape loaded or not. I've checked and even replaced the audio cables so I know that's not the problem. The same problem occurs when I'm playing a tape as well.

First, have you definitely ruled out an external problem, by hooking it up to a different television or audio amp? If the problem follows the VCR to whatever it is hooked up to, then obviously, the VCR has a problem. Likely, this is an internal electronic defect. Services of a repair shop would be required. Sorry I can't be of more help.

It's not fixable.

Error E3 on Mitsubishi HS-U795

Try this :
If your VCR malfunctions, try the following steps prior to contacting your Mitsubishi Dealer:
1 Check the Trouble Checks below to see if there is a solution to the current problem that you are
2 If the problem is not addressed on the Trouble Checks, the safety circuits in the VCR may be in
operation, thus please try the following: (the clock setting and the timer recording will be deleted.)
1 If possible, press EJECT on the front panel and remove the tape.
2 Press TIMER RESET on the rear panel with a pencil or a ball point pen.
3 If a tape is not loaded, press POWER to turn the power on. If a tape is loaded, wait about 1 minute
until the tape protecting function is completed, then press POWER.
3 You may also try the following procedure if the above steps did not resolve the problem (All settings will
be reset to the default settings.).
1 Press POWER on the front panel continuously for about 8 seconds until the current time display on
the front panel shows "- : - -."
2 If a tape is not loaded, press POWER to turn the power on. If a tape is loaded, the tape protecting
function will work and "99" will appear on the front panel display to begin count down. Wait about 1
minute until it reaches "00" to show the tape protecting function is completed, then press POWER.
If the problem with your VCR persists, contact your Mitsubishi dealer for assistance.

Im looking for error codes.
