How to hook-up my VCR to NTSC TV?

I've just moved in the US bringing in my home European VCR JVC HR-J437MS VCR, and trying connecting it to Toshiba Digital TV. I tried using RGB and the COX cable, both with same poor results - I can hear the tape, but see it on B&W skipping pikture. What should I do to adjust my VCR to teh NTSC TV system? Thanks! Zohar

    Hi Pravin,
    reading your answer bellow, still some issues remain.
    1) I can not see any tape I have. it's not that I see a B&B clear picture, but the pictur is running upside down the screen rapidly.
    I understood there is only PAL tuner on my VCR to enable me fine tune PAL broadcast only.
    What should I do to see my PAL tapes on the VCR while connected to NTSC TV?
    When setting the VCR to NTSC, I hear the tape audio track running very fast whith no pic at all. when setting it to auto or PAL, I can hear OK, but with no picture at all.
    Thanks,
    Zohar

Zohar, You must remember that various regions in the world have different Broadcast systems. TVs and VCRs are manufactured for playback and Recording in different regions. But, while the JVC HR - J 437MS is a Multi System VCR as far as Playback is concerned, It has only a PAL Tuner. So , while you can watch NTSC Tapes, you cannot tune a NTSC Broadcast through its tuner, and watch on your TV. You will only get a B&W picture. To atleast view NTSC Tapes, use the Remote of the VCR, and set System to AUTO or NTSC. Again, there are 2 versions of NTSC - the 3.58 and the 4.43 ones. Certain regions of the US broadcast in NTSC 3.58, and some in NTSC 4.43. So select carefully, Similarly, bring up the TV menu, and select AUTO or NTSC for TV reception. Now you will be able to view American broadcasts in color.But I suggest you set System to AUTO, as then you can watch your earlier Tapes collection from Europe also. As for connections, it is fairly simple. I am uncertain if your VCR has a 21 pin euroconnector (SCART)but it is unlikely. You will be having Audio L and Audio R out ockets at the rear of the VCR, alongwith Video Out socket. Just connect suitable RCA cables from these OUT sockets to the Video and Audio IN (L) and Audio IN (R) siockets on the TV. select AV input, and you are ready. check it out. 99% it will be work out.

    Sorry, You will be able to view Tapes in the US - Rented or purchased - in color.

    Dear Zohar,

    I preume your TV is a Multi System TV? Please check. if it is not, then you cannot watch PAL tapes on your TV.
    Picture rolling is due to incompatibility between PAL Vertical frequency - 50Hz, and NTSC vertical frequency, which is 60Hz.
    Some of the earlier TVs used to have a vertical Hold control at the rear. If your TV has that, then use it to stop the rolling.
    One other possibility because of which you are not able to view your Tapes properly could be Dirty Video Heads. Clean them with a good 'Wet Type' Cleaning Cassette.
    Best of Luck.

I bought a new LG LCD Television but cant find a way of connecting it to my JVC HR-S6800. Any hints, i've tried everything !


I believe the JVC HR-S6800 is a VCR. Older VCRs have composite video outputs you can hook up to your TV.
Here is a good video on that. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9eP1ddtASU

I have lost the manual and would like to hook up the VCR to my TV in order to record programs. Can you help? JVC Video Cassette Recorder HR-D18OU Thank you.


Is the incoming signal OTA or cable? (If cable, is it analog (CATV) or digital (QAM)?)

Most TV's do not have a video out but you should check your TV. Assuming the usual TV with no video out, then you will need a set top box to record any program other than analog signals (CATV or a low power OTA option). The VCR only has an NTSC (analog) tuner.

For an OTA signal, take the coax from the antenna to a digital-to-analog converter coax in, then coax out of the converter to the coax in (tuner) of the VCR. Then set the VCR to channel 3 or 4. Set the switch on the converter. (Some VCRs will record Line In or Input, so you could use the composite out of the converter to the VCR.) Then coax out from the VCR to the coax in on the TV and set the TV to Channel 3 or 4 as well. Set the switch on the VCR. (Alternatively use the composite (A/V) out on the VCR to the composite In on the TV and set the input to AV1 (or whatever the TV calls the input). Digital cable will be set up like the OTA, except for using a cable set top box instead. You may want a splitter to allow for watching one program while recording another. In that case, put the splitter before the set top box if the TV has the digital tuner. Otherwise put it after the set top box. In both cases, you will need to use the AV (composite out) on the VCR to the TV.

For analog cable, take the coax cable and connect it to the VCR's coax in. Then connect the coax out or AV out to TV.

Set the VCR to the desired station and press REC. For timed record, enter the menu and set the time to start and end the recording as well as the channel. If you are using a set top box, set that to the desired station and then press record. (Leave the VCR set to Line in or channel 3 (4) as needed.)

Manuals for some JVC vcrs are here: http://support.jvc.com/consumer/product.jsp?categoryId=CATG0002&productId=PRD4600001&archive=true . A manual for a similar model will help since they all connect the same way. However the HR-D18OU is not in the list.

I hope this helps.

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.
