Question about Mitsubishi HS-U560 VHS VCR

1 Answer

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

We have a Mitsubishi HS-U560 VCR and love the way it works. Now that the over air signal is digital rather than analog, is it possible to tape programs on this HS-U560 VCR? It would seem that using a converter box between the antenna and the VCR should allow taping that could be fed to our HD-TV, but so far, we haven't been successful.

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.

I have a Mitsubishi HS-U448 VCR. It plays my VHS tapes fine, but I can't get a blue screen when I turn it on. When I press 'play', the movie looks great. Once I hit 'stop', it'


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.

When i put in a tape, i get a squeeling sound, and the tape won't play.


The only way is to take the top off and watch what the tape is doing! You might even see some object inside which should not be there!

Open bottom metal cover. Rotate the belts of the motor. Cassete should unload from Spindle and reel back into the cassette. Then please open the VCR top, and you will see a belt and gearmechanism on the right side of the cassette compartment. Manually rotate the gears and the tape will slowly come out.

VCR started eating tapes.


When a VCR eats a tape, it can be cause by a couple things.

1. There is a rubber wheel called a "pincher wheel" that compresses the tape against the "capstan". The capstan is a shiny metal spindle connected to a motor. The pincher wheel can become worn and/or dirty (slick) from the oxide coating off of the tape. You can try cleaning the pincher wheel and capstan with alcohol or try using a re-grip solution on the pincher wheel. Last thing to do is replace the pincher wheel. Look to see that the pincher wheel is doing its job by pulling the tape through.

2. There is a small tire wheel called an idler tire. This tire pivots between the sending and pickup reels of the player. Its also used during fast forward & rewind as well as play. If the tire is worn, the tape won't be wound up as fast on the take-up reel as the sending reel during play. This means more tape is coming out of the cassette than can be wound up on the takeup reel. You can try using a re-grip solution on the idler tire or replace it.

Let me know if you need more information as to where to purchase these parts.
Yes - There are cassettes available that are made out of clear plastic that allow you see what's happening. You can also trick the player into thinking there is a tape. There are sensors (mechanical & infrared sensors) that you can bypass.

Good luck!

Bad recording from any source


The fact that both inputs give you a bad recording indicates its something common to both inputs. First thing I would do is try cleaning the heads. It's the cheapest solution to try. There is also an erase head as well, but that is usually not part of the video head. The erase head erases the tape just prior to the record head recording the new material on the tape. Problems in the erase head will cause you to see both what you just recorded and what was previously on the tape. The picture will be distorted and shifting back and forth between the new program and the previous one.

Good luck!
