It sounds like it is set to a TV station and since all the analogue stations have now gone you will only get static. Without a remote you wan't be able to switch it. I suggest you either shop around for a replacement (try Curry's partmaster) or use a universal one.

    OK, I successfully got the universal remote to work with the VCR. I even got into the 'VCR Main Menu' and tried going through 'first time setup'. Still getting just static. I'm not sure what to do with the remote to fix the problem.

    If this is an analogue video and I think it is, then what you need to do is get a diigatal set top box. You can connect it via the scart socket and set the recording to the av setting using the remote. Otherwise it can only be used as a VHS play back video.

SOURCE: VCR eats tape when rewinding

A couple of possibilities: 1. Braking problems: When VCR goes from FFWD, REW, Play to stop, there are a pair of "brake pads" engaged to stop the reels, and prevent tape spillage out into the machine. These pads, often rubber like, are on levers which contact one side of each reel. If you take the cover off the VCR, and look down where the tape is loaded, you will like see these brake assemblies. If the rubber pad is missing, or lever pivot points gummied up, then this is your issue. 2. Take up reel isn't being engaged to take up the tape on tape eject. When a tape is loaded into the machine, tape is pulled from the cartridge and threaded into play ready position. When eject mode is engaged, the tape must be pulled back into the cartridge, or you will have tape hanging out the front end of the cartridge, and may get caught on the VCR internals, or at least be mangled by the cartridge door. The often issue here is likely the idler assembly pivot point is sticky. This idler pivots, moving from the take-up reel (right reel) to the supply reel reel (left one), depending on what mode is selected. FFWD & play to the right, left for REW. If this idler is gummed up at it's pivot point, movement will be sluggish at best, and might not be engaging the right reel quickly enough to pull tape in before tape eject. This idler is sitting right between the reels down where the tape sits. A little light oil on the pivot point may be enough to loosen it up. Otherwise it might need to be removed and the old grease removed, and a drop or two of light oil applied.

SOURCE: Plays for 3 secs, stops, and then ejects

This unit needs to have the "idler" changed as well as the belts. Over time, the internal rubber parts get hard ans slippery. There are safety checks inside that will stop the unit when problems are detected. With a slipppery idler assembly, the tape does not get wound into the cassette after passing the heads. Rather than have the tape collect inside and be destroyed, the unit stops. This is a relatively simple repair that any shop should be able to perform. Expect a parts cost in the $35 range. In my opinion, this unit is worth the repair as it will continue to provide service to you for years to come. New replacement units tend to last only a year or two.

SOURCE: Can we tape digital feed on a VCR and play it on an HD-ready tv?

You should be able to accomplish this. Run the antenna to your converter box. Run the video and audio outputs of the digital converter box to the inputs on your vcr. Your vcr should then be able to record the program (select line-in as the channel when setting up the recording). Hook your vcr audio and video output to your tv.
It's best to use a converter box that has an event timer - this allows the converter box to turn on at a specified time and channel. Otherwise you will need to manually set the channel you wish to record on the converterbox, and leave it turned on.

Looking to obtain a HS-U448 manual and remote.


The manual is available from the Mitsubishi Support site: http://support.mitsubishi-tv.com/documents/HS-U448 . The direct link to the manual is http://support.mitsubishi-tv.com/files/oguide/HS-U448.pdf .

The original remote is no longer available. However, remotes.com has a substitute remote: http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=HS-U448&uuid=13065385902780 .

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 have a Mitsubishi HSU48. The tape is stuck in the VCR. I cannot get it out. Do you have any suggestions


I had this problem with this specific machine. These answers have all been general to any VCR. The Mitsubishi HS-U448 has its motor underneath the machine. You don't have to remove the top cover at all. Just remove the bottom plate and spin the motor (the correct direction) to completely eject the tape.

Can tune mitsubishi HS-651V video player/recorder to watch TV.


Hi Jaco, Have you fed in your Antenna / cable into the Rear of the VCR? And if your VCR has a Input selection switch, just check input to Tuner. You will get Blue screen if input selction is not Tuner but Camera / External source. If this does not solve your problem, then there is no Input selection happening.

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.

VCR functions do not work (play, record, ...)


Sounds like the idler assembly isnt working. Without this assembly, the system cannot get the tape to actually move, and most systems will shut down if the tape isnt moving to prevent damage to the tape. In truth, this can be a complicatred repair, requiring the machine to be taken apart quite a bit. I would suggest taking this kind of a problem to a repair shop, but with the cost of simple VCR's coming down constantly, and the upcoming switch to DTV making the machines tuner obsolete, it would probably be more economical to just replace the machine.
