Jvc video cassette recorder model HR-A592U: After choosing "VCR" on the remote control choice: TV/VCR, CANNOT CALL UP "MENU" SCREEN - screen just goes blank when I hit "menu" on the control.Hitting menu again brings back. If I also then hit "Enter", I then must hit "menu" twice. May have hit the " - SET + " buttons several times when menu was running but not on the tv screen. Everything else seems to be working! The JVC instructions under "Other Intructions: BLUE BLACK - ON OFF" describes something close to what has happened (I do not get a "blue" screen - its grey) but instructions require using the menu to access "system setup" to

    my original comment should read ...After choosing "VCR" on the remote control choice entitled "TV/VCR", when I next hit "menu" on the remote control, my TV screen simply becomes a blank grey. If I again choose "menu" my original, normal TV screen returns.
    then continue as before: "If I also hit ......etc"

    It is still January 13th in Ontario, Canada! I have attempted to clarify my problem with a "comment". I record frequently with my VCR, using only my VCR remote control. I may have inadvertently clicked some incorrect buttons as I was attempting to start to program the timer (Also see my initial comments leading up to and including my "blue screen" reference.) I simply cannot find a way to call up the VCR's menu.

    disconnect power and hold "on/off" (power) did the trick! Most of my home entertainment equipment is JVC (Altho my yr old big screen TV is Sony) The JVC has been easier to use than most I have encountered and that's quite a few!

1. TV problem. It looks like the wrong Closed Caption setting are selected. It might be a menu setting or the remote may even have a seperate CC button. Try to change it by turning on/off
2. problem with remote. Is it original one. How old is it.
Can you get universal one and try to use it.
Good Luck

Check coaxial/composite, (cable and rca's), connections. Make sure its on the right channel. If all else fails unplug it and let it reset. Hope that helped.

Unplug It And Hold The On/Off For 30 Second Then Release And Plug Back In. This Should Restore All The Factory Setting And If Its The Settings The Problem Wont Continue.

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.

Poor picture when recorded on vcr


run a head cleaner through, a wet one is best and this should improve the quality of playback. Also check the condition of the vcr cassettes you are using, old ones do get worn out and leave dirt on the rollers and heads

I can only record and play back in black and white.


siri,

for the black and white screen output of your DVD and VCR.

1) for DVD player: using remote control locate "setup" button and click.a dialogue box should appear indicating " audio setup" video setup" etc.....
2) select and scroll to "video setup". in video setup there should be an option to choose "AUTO" "PAL" or "NTSC"
3) choose "auto" then check if any change in screen color.

for VCR, locate a switch or button indicating "PAL" "Auto""PAL SECAM" "NTSC". same with the dvd choose and select "auto"

note: if you still have the manual for both VCR and DVD check the instruction with regards to video color setting.

cheers,
mark

Setup Menu Unavailable for JVC HR-XVC30U


There were several screens that were unavailable and there seemed to be no obvious solution so I treated it like a PC and rebooted the unit. In terms of this unit, it meant unplugging the unit for an hour and then plugging it back in. All functionality is now available once again.

I have the manual. Are you trying to record something live? if so:

1) Turn on both the DVD/VCR and your TV.
2) Switch the input selector on your TV so that the signal from the player appears on the TV screen (this is usually something like 'input 1' or 'line 1' and so forth)
3) On your remote, set TV/DVD-VIDEO to DVD-Video, then press SELECT VIDEO to control the VCR. These buttons are at the upper left hand corner of the remote controller.
4) To record from a cable box, turn it on.
5) make sure the tape is longer than the total recording time.
6) insert a tape into the VCR.
7) press CH +/- on the remote to select the channel or line input video source to record.
8) select the tape speed SP/EP (SP provides better quality, EP provides three times the recording time as SP)
9) Press the record button to start recording. The VCR display will display the message REC.
