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.

Re: The sound cuts on and off and on and off and...

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.

Looking to obtain a HS-U448 manual and remote.

The manual is available from the Mitsubishi Support site: . The direct link to the manual is .

The original remote is no longer available. However, has a substitute remote: .

A number of universal remotes will probably also work. The codes will be in any remote that still controls a VCR if the remote was programmed after the HS-U448 was released.

I hope this helps.

I cannot remove a vhs tape from my Mitsubishi HS-U51 player. HELP! KEN

If you are handy,
1) Unplug unit from power outlet before you do anything.
2) Take the top off /remove - screws usually phillips on both sides.
3) You will probably find the tape of the VHS wrapped around or pulled out of the cassette so you could cut the tape and probably pull the VHS out of the unit.
4) This deck sounds like it will need some cleaning and attention.
Might be a good idea to take it into a qualified TV repair shop and mabe for a small fee they can clean it.

Language setup for Mitsubishi HS-U510 VCR

I contacted Mitsubishi support. It is very likely the 510 and the 520 are similar. I was told to look at the back of the VCR (in the middle and lower) for a "timer reset" button. Pushing it will put you into initial setup mode and you can set your VCR to english menu. It works!

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.

Mitsubishi HS-412UR - Audio - Right Channel Not Working Properly

One of the strangest things that has happened to both the consumer and the technical field has been the use of a flexible adhesive on many of these machines' circuit boards. The glue in question is vanilla-colored, and has a tendency to react to electricity by inducing capacitance, resistance, and in some cases, even causing inductance issues. The fix, of course, is to remove as much of this material as possible, and following right behind with a nylon-based retainer. Then, if the problem persists, a followup with tried and true technical procedures...accordianman

Mitsubishi HS-U447 VCR in Lock or "Loc" mode

Hopefully you still the VCR. Your's is stuck in "CHILDLOCK" mode. To release the lock you have to have the remote and press the DISPLAY for 8 to 10 seconds.

The purpose of the CHILDLOCK is to prevent others from using your VCR. If you want to set the VCR back on Lock you again press the DISPLAY for 8 to 10 seconds.

This solution is from the owner manual for HS-U448, so I figure your model is the same.
