Display shows a set of black bars

Over the weekend, while trying to record, the display message said something about running a leaning cassette. So I went an bought one, but it did not work. When I play a tape, is has a series of black stripes, horizontal across the screen. The unit is just over a year old, and not used much at all. We take good care of it, keeping it out of extreme conditions and never wet. Do you have any suggestions?

This is a common(ish) problem on the JVC models. In most cases running the cleaning cassette will work. If it does not work the first time try it a second time. Make sure you follow the instructions as provided by the manufacturer for the use of your cassette and any cleaning solutions involved. Use them in conjunction with camera's information.

How to record a program you are watching on your cable satellite receiver.

Hello,<br /><br />Most of the time we watch TV programs with our cable satellite receiver/decoder. And sometimes we would love to record these programs so that we can watch them again. You can learn how to record your TV program while you watching a TV program. <br /><br />All you will be needing is a DVD recorder or VCR (Video cassette Recorder). It all depends on the one you prefer.<br /><br />There are two methods of doing this connection. 1. is RF connection and the other is RCA. But I will start with the RF connection method;<br /><br />This is how is works. Get a RF cord, check the back of your TV, you would see RF in, connect the RF into TV in, then connect the other part to RF Out at the back of the Cassette or DVD Recorder.<br /><br />Turn the Cassette or DVD Recorder and the TV on. Go to Channel 1 or any channel on the TV, search the TV stations automatically or manually in order to get a display of the Cassette or DVD Recorder on the TV. To easily get the Cassette or DVD Recorder's station, play a movie on the Cassette or DVD Recorder while you search for the station. Once you see the display of the movie on your TV, you would easily know that that's the Cassette or DVD Recorder station. <br /><br />Once you have gotten a display from the Cassette or DVD Recorder, save the channel on the TV.<br /><br />Then get another RF cord, connect it to "RF out" at the back of the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver and the other part to "RF in" at the back of the Cassette or DVD Recorder.<br /><br />Now with the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver turned on and the Cassette or DVD Recorder also turned on, press the Cassette or DVD Recorder's channel, you should find search. Scan for channel/stations on the Cassette or DVD Recorder just like you did on the TV and you will find a display of the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver showing on the TV via the Cassette or DVD Recorder. Note that on some Cassette or DVD Recorder, you will have to select "Source" to RF before you can get a display of the channel.<br /><br />Now since the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver program is now showing via the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver, insert a black disc or cassette into the Recoder and press record. The Satellite/cable decoder/receiver programs showing on the TV via the player will be recorded and that would be all.<br /><br />For some recorders that has internal hard drive, you can just press record without inserting a blank disc......<br /><br />USING RCA CONNECTION METHOD.<br /><br />You could also achieve this by using a RCA (yellow, red and white cord).<br /><br />The connection procedure is the same with the RF explained above.<br /><br />Connect the Recorder to the TV. That is, from "Video and audio Out" of the recorder to "video and audio in" of the TV accordingly. Press AV or source on the TV to confirm that there is a display from the recorder on the TV.<br /><br />Now connect the RCA cord to "OUT" from the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver to "IN" at the back of the Recorder.<br /><br />Then, press source on the recorder to "INPUT" (RCA) and the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver's program will automatically display on the TV. <br /><br />While the Program is being displayed on the TV via the recoder, insert a blank disc and press record on the player and it will automatically start recording. You will see the record or record symbol while the recoding is in progress.<br /><br />I hope you understand the above. Please follow steps closely and you won't have any problems.<br /><br />Good luck.

Black screen in REC mode, bars across the screen in Playback mode

My advice is that you should by a DV cleaning cassette. Put this in the camera and run it for 10 to 20 seconds only. running the cleaning cassette for a long time may damage the head.
good luck!

T30 always comes up with record-ready display screen

T30 defaults to an opening display screen based on where you were when you last used the device. When leaving from the record folder and record mode, you will always open with the record-ready screen. If you left your T30 while in the music folder playing a music file, you will be returned to that.

This record-ready display screen has a numeric and bar time line. The numeric values of the line are in hrs:min:seconds. This line is also split: the right half of the line indicates the total amount of available recording time, while the left half indicates your time as you record. If you compare the values of the right and left sides of the numeric bar while you are recording, you will see that the right side is diminishing as the left side increases in numeric value. When you complete your recording and save your track, the right side will now indicate the new total time (the amount your screen first displayed LESS the time value of the track just recorded).

When you are playing a music file, if you watch the time display, you will see the numeric information changing in the same way. The left side indicates how may hrs:min:seconds your track has played while the right side indicates the total time value for that file and will be correspondingly decreasing while you play your music file.

So in the short, you don't need to worry much about your display screen unless you open in the wrong folder or you need more recording time than is available. Then it has a message for you.

Dictaphone 2740 desktop.

Try another cassette. There is a tab on each side of the back edge of a tape which when removed will prevent most machines from going into record. If the tab is there (and not bent in), then the switch at the back of the cassette compartment is dirty or out of adjustment. If you can find a manual for the 2740 (try at, they bought Dictaphone), it will show how to change the Letter display back to a timeline. Good Luck.

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.
